Robotic Lawn Mowers
Check out our great selection of Robotic Lawn Mowers! Automatic robot mowers do the work themselves. Automatic robotic mowers navigate on their own and keep lawns mowed to a consistent height, such as 3 inches - always.
Although they do not yet mow in straight lines, robot lawn mowers are light-weight, preventing permanent tracks from forming. No lines at all looks better than straight lines! Robot mowers are the best way to mow grass.
How do they work?
All robot mowers use a thin low voltage wire, similar to an invisible dog fence, to identify the grassy areas. The robot mows within the wire continuously, or as much as needed, to keep the lawn mowed to a consistent height - always.
What powers the robot?
All robotic lawn mowers use rechargeable batteries. Our best robot mowers use environmentally friendly Lithium Ion batteries, The robot recharges itself automatically by driving back to its charging station located in the lawn, or conveniently tucked under a deck.
What happens to the clippings?
One of the best things about robotic mowers is that because they mow frequently, there is only a small amount of growth to be mowed at a time. The clippings are so small, they are invisible. They simply fall into the grass and decay naturally, providing additional fertilization for your lawn. We recommend using less fertilizer since too much fertilizer can create a thatch problem. Robot mowers are a solution to thatch-prone grass. Frequent mowing generates small clippings, giving you free fertilizer so less added fertilizer is required!
Are Robotic Mowers Safe?
We are really glad you asked this question. We carry the Lawnbott Robotic Mower. It is the only brand examined and accepted by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. It also meets a very stringent European robotic lawn mower safety standard. Robot mowers are far safer than traditional lawn mowers. There are over 80,000 lawn mower accidents each year. Many involve dismembered toes or fingers and sadly, many children are hurt. However, robot mowers are safer because a human is no where near the blade. Also, the blade turns off automatically if the robot is lifted.
Why buy a robot mower instead of just paying the neighbor's kid to mow?
Great question! First off, how reliable is that kid anyway? Are you sure you can count on him week in and week out? Your robot mower is always doing his job. He doesn't have a girlfriend to worry about or any vacation plans. Plus the lawn will be mowed all the time instead of getting long and then having clippings everywhere.
The times the kid cannot show up, either you have to mow it yourself or the grass gets so long you end up with clumps instead of clippings. Then your kids or your dog tracks the clippings into the house creating an additional mess to clean up.
How about giving our robotic mowers a serious look? Buy one and you will be amazed at the results! You will give it a name and it will become part of your family.
