When you think of how much time and effort it takes to mow your lawn, how would you feel if someone else did it for you? Maybe a robot lawnmower is the answer. They sound like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, but they are actually real! This post will explore how these cool gadgets work and help decide if they’re worth your money.
How does a robot lawn mower work?
The robot lawn mower is basically an electric device. Once you programme it to your desired size of your garden, it will start working its way around the property, avoid any obstacles and cut all the grass that it can manage. It has sensors that help it to stay off areas where you don’t want it to go. Then the clippings fall to the ground and you can just remove them later.
There are even some designed that will automatically recharge themselves when their batteries run low. You just have to tell them where your yard boundaries are and let them do all the work from there!
As far as how well they cut grass?
It pretty much depend on what type you buy since different ones come with varying levels of cutting capabilities. There are different models with varying capabilities, so it’s important to check out what each one can do before making your decision! We have reviewed some good robot lawn mowers at our site: Worx WR150 Landroid L, Husqvarna Automower 310, Robomow RS612, and Gardena 4069 R80Li
Are they worth your money?
These devices typically range in price between $500-1500 and answer really depends on what you want from a lawn mower. For example, these devices cannot cut as well as a normal lawn mower. This is because they have limited cutting height options and also do not have any form of grass collector to catch the clippings. They also cannot cut very long grass as they just chop the top of it off, resulting in a ragged lawn. They are not recommended for use on steep slopes either.
Why should I get one?
This is an excellent question and the answer is simple.
If you hate mowing your lawn, then it might be for you!
Lawn mowers are pretty time consuming to use so if there’s an easier way to spend that extra free-time then maybe this is something worth considering. Let me see what the pros and cons look like.

What to look for in a robot lawn mower?
The very first thing I would suggest looking for when buying a robotic lawnmower is whether or not it has good manoeuvrability. After all, the whole point of getting one is to save you time so you wouldn’t want it to get stuck in a corner or other tight area, would you?
If you have slopes on your property then it’s best to look for one that is capable of cutting at various heights as this will allow you to cut all the grass, no matter how steep it is.
In conclusion, you have to decide if what they have to offer is worth your money or if you would be better off with a normal lawn mower.
I think these robots are really cool for smaller gardens, but if you have a large area to look after then it may be better off with the traditional way of doing things.
