Before you buy a robotic lawnmower, there are a few things you need to consider, such as how much space you have in your yard and how steep your lawn is. There are many robots on the market, but which one is best for you will depend on your particular needs. Below is a guide to help you decide which robotic lawn mower to buy.
It would help to consider whether your yard has a gentle slope or a large area. Robotic lawnmowers do best on flat, level lawns, but they can handle slightly sloping regions as long as there is a flat area. Robotic mowers are unsuitable for yards with complex geometry, as they need more ground wire. Further, they are susceptible to breaking from tunneling rodents and digging. In addition, low spots and debris such as pine cones, fruit, and nuts can slow the robotic mower down.
A robotic lawn mower is small enough to carry away, but some models require a personal identification number. This way, a thief can’t abscond with it. Some premium models even have security features, including a GPS tracker. Some owners choose to set the mower to run at certain times, while others will program it to run during specific periods of the day.
There are several models available today, and you can choose from many different brands and models. Prices can range from as little as $800 to $5,000. WORX is one of the leading manufacturers of robotic lawnmowers and has a high-end model, the WORX WR155. It has an 8-inch cutting width and can tackle slopes of up to 20 degrees. Other features include a rain detector and a three-year limited warranty.
Most of these robotic mowers have a user-friendly interface. Once you have installed them, you can control them through an app on your phone. Robotic lawnmowers are also incredibly low-maintenance. Some of them can even be programmed to mow in the rain, and you can even clean them up with a hose! Our robot overlords are calling… from the shed in the back of the house.
