MoeBot S5

Very easy machine to set up. Once you have the perimeter in place you just set it to task. I did put some protection around some young fruit trees as I didn’t want them damaged. You can program it to work when convenient to you. Very quiet machine and there are no lawn clippings because it mows so regular . Very good investment for me as I hate mowing lawns in the summer . Show details

Terrible customer service

Like other users moebot was great for the first 10 months or so, but once you have an issue a warranty issue, customer service is terrible. I am still waiting on rear wheels that I purchased last November (I purchased them as I had so much trouble getting the front ones under warranty I thought purchasing them through the website would be less hassle). Show details

Ok mower. Shocking support

Moebot was decent at cutting grass when it worked. But less that 12months in the entire motor housing (made of brittle plastic) smashed itself to pieces and the charging plate broke. Rather than offering to fix the mower I was just sent spare parts and sparse instructions on how to fix it myself. However they sent me the wrong parts and now are refusing to return any of my correspondence. I've lodged support tickets with them online, called them and emailed them with no progress. When I do occasionally get through I'm 'assured' they're looking into things and they'll get back to me soon. It's been over 4 months now and still no resolution. Show details

Don’t Buy One

Can not get it to mow my lawn, have had the unit sent back and a new base station but still doesn’t work and they take forever to reply, and ever since i asked for a refund and to return the product not getting reply. I have lots of photos and videos to prove, as well as how i installed. It literally runs away from the grass, not what a lawn mower is supposed to do. Show details

Lack of after sales support

I have had this product for 2 years. Works well on a 15 degree slope on 1300sqm of grass. Consumables are readily available, however a key design flaw in the dock and charging connection has hit myself and from my research - many other owners. Two issues impact this product - the material used for the charging contacts on the mower and metal fatigue over repeated charge cycles on the wires attaching to the contacts. I have contacted moebot support and they have ignored this. Until this design is updated, I wouldn't purchase the s5/10/20. It's a shame as the mower works perfectly apart from this issue.

Ok product for the price

Purchased and has been ordinary to downright terrible experience from day one.
As with other users, the wire length was an issue.
Then constant failures from the charging wire to failing disk.
Customer service is terrible and they get you to do repairs yourself. Show details ·  2

Highly recommend

Love my Moebot, had it 3 months now and it hasn’t missed a beat yet! Literally removes a weekly job of mowing my lawn. Received great service and it was easy to setup. Advice for new owners, it took me a few days to get the boundary wire right, wasn’t a big deal, had to re adjust it so the moebot wouldn’t get bogged in a few spots. Other than that it was very easy and I’d recommend. App works well, however the screen on the Moebot is good enough to get it setup and going on a timetable

Everyday mowing becomes wasy

Once the first time set up is done (with instructional step by step video on youtube), I can hand everyday mowing to my ‘Moebot’, maintaining the health of my lawn. Will highly recommend it if it will be working for at least two years. (Has been using it for three month, so far so good.) Show details

Has worked well

I've had our Moebot for a few months now. It's been great. Large flat lawn (so maybe an easier case) but it works tirelessly and well. I did have three occurances of eating its cable in the first month. I advise using plenty of pegs. It's a problem that solves itself eventually as the grass grows over the cable. Show details

Moebot - Has changed my life!

Robot My Life has changed my life! I absolutely love my new Moebot mower! My lawns are always manicured, without any effort at all. When I went into the shop with questions after purchasing the mower, the gentlemen was very helpful and answered all our questions. I am so impressed, I would love to also purchase the window cleaner. I highly recommend Robot My Life. Show details

Love it, keeps the lawn tidy!

We love our MoeBot.

It does a great job of the lawn. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 is that it doesn’t do the edges as well as we would like so need to keep doing this manually but it does do a great job of the lawn.

No more picking up clippings either and lawn consistently looks great. Edges we will do monthly so not that much of a hassle! Much easier than pre-Moebot! Show details

Does the job better than I can ... every day

The Moebot runs every day as it is scheduled. Returns automatically to its home to recharge whenever it needs to. Easy to install the perimeter guide wire pegged along the ground ... when I an certain of the position I will bury it. Excellent value. Show details

Excellent addition to the family home!

We purchased the S5 Moebot for our newly laid buffalo grass. It works great! It has got stuck on a steep slope a couple of times so I moved the boundary wire a bit and it resolved the issue. The initially set up of the boundary wire can be tedious and there's still a need to whipper snip the edges, but overall, it's a great machine! Show details

I want to purchase moebot it..I have a narrow gap between shed an pool fence of about 1600.. instructions say 1200 minimum . If I lay wires 30cm from fence and 30 cm from shed that would make gap only 1000. Is this right . I guess what I mean does the 1200 minimum include 300 x2 distance or is 1200 the total distance
