GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Grand Rapids Parks and Recreation Department has a new team member: Turfy McTankface.
That’s the name given to the new robot that will paint lines on the athletic fields around the city.
The robot, branded the TurfTank One, uses GPS to paint precise lines on fields. With a current three-year lease, it will save Grand Rapids $5,000 each year, the city says.
Turfy McTankface is expected to get to work this week.
