Is your garden suitable for a robot lawn mower?

At this stage robot lawn mowers aren't as adaptable as push and ride-on mowers. Consider whether your garden is large or more difficult to naviagte. Do you have uneven terrain? Are there bushes, or other obstructions such as garden beds? Do you have inclines? If you answered yes to any of these questions, getting a robot mower will involve doing more groundwork - like installing boundary wires or selecting a model with reliable traction.

Is it easy to control?

Since you're not going to be physically there to steer this mower, the control system should be easy to operate. Look out for a clear display, and straightforward settings for you to program timers and cutting length. Some robot lawn mowers come with a smartphone app that helps you keep track of how its progress through your backyard and there are a range of sensors that can make a robot mower perform better.

What's the noise level of the mower?

If you want to set and forget your robot mower and focus on other tasks, it shouldn't be too loud, as this will defeat the purpose.

What sort of safety features does it offer?

This is especially important if you've got pets and young children. Many robot lawn mowers have a cutting disc with retractable blades which makes it less likely for a hand, foot or paw to become trapped underneath the mower.

Other robot lawn mower features to consider:

  • Cutting diameter: Robot lawn mowers come with blades in varying cutting diameters. As a rule of thumb, larger cutting diameters are better for bigger lawns, while smaller cutting diameters are better for jobs requiring precision.
  • Wheels: Robot lawn mower models have different types of wheels. Some are built to handle slopes and uneven terrains while others are better on a flat track, so consider what's best for your garden type.
  • Perimeter wire: Not only does this wire prevent your lawn mower from running straight through your garden bed, but in some models it also provides charge for the mower. Perimeter wires can be placed around the garden bed or hidden underneath the surface of your garden.

It's better than mowing the lawn butMake sure there's no dog poo on the lawn, what a disaster! It has errors saying the wire is missing sometimes - the wire isn't missing. Digs holes sometimes it doesn't detect objects. Overall, it can't be left alone. I've attached an example picture of a hole it dug. Show details

A massive timesaver and leaves the lawn looking magnificent!One of the best birthday presents I have ever received! Cuts hours of weekend work in spring and summer, and requires very little attention (it does the back lawn every night and I move it to the front lawn for a couple of hours as it needs it). It is much easier to drink a beer watching your mower work than actually pushing it around!! :)  Show details

Takes some setup, but worth it in endThe mower does take some setup with the wire, but I knew that before buying and was told that by Australia robotic, pretty much all the mowers require a wire setup, similar to an electric dog fence. After we set up the wire and did some test runs and adjustments, it works fine. I would recommend.
