You also have lawnmowers that are capable of riding so the task becomes like a leisurely weekend drive.
Finally, we have the newest entrance to the market with lawn mowers like the Worx WR150 Landroid L that is able to mow your lawn without any help. Of course, with these new-fangled abilities, this lawnmower also carries with it a relatively steep price when compared to the rest of the market. Continue on and you can find out if this is the right automated lawnmower for you to leave your push driven models behind.
The first step to getting the works Android L running is to complete the setup. This lawnmower uses a boundary wire system in order to track its way around your lawn and return to its home base charger.
That means you will need to take the time to install the wire entirely around the inside and outside the boundaries of your home. You will want to keep in mind any special landscaping elements that you would like to avoid.
Everything you need for setting up the wire boundaries system comes in the box. Due to the mower not creating as much lift as a standard mower you can simply run the wire along the top of your grass. With help from the clips in the included kit, you can keep the wire closer to the ground so your grass grows over it. You can even bury the wire deep if you are worried as the mower can still pick it up from a 2-inch depth.
The installation process should take about four hours. Once you get the mower charging, you’re almost ready to go, you can set the cutting height from 1.6 to 3.9 inches. The app also allows you to control mowing zones and set a mowing schedule plus more. Once everything is ready to go you should watch the mower in action the first time through. After the first run, it is pretty set and forget.
