Proven technologies, trusted relationships

Warner Electric is no stranger to the Turf & Garden market. Most major mower OEMs already view our engineering team as an extension of their internal engineering departments. OEMs routinely ship prototype mowers to Warner's Technology and Innovation Center, where Warner engineers develop a custom clutch/brake solution for the specific outdoor power equipment application, and then define and perform all appropriate testing protocols in-house.
