Have one of these, bought for £400ish last black friday. Was a ball ache to set up (takes a few hours to lay the wires around your garden, get it all plugged into the mains power, etc.) but then it's saved me many hours of boring mowing and having to clear up and dispose of grass clippings throughout the summer. It's been amazing. Highly recommend to anyone like me who hates mowing.

It's a satisfying feeling sitting in your garden on a hot summer day with your feet up, ice cold cider in hand, watching a robot do your chores for you. Until the inevitable robot uprising when it'll kill you for making it your slave. But until then, it's bliss.

They use a small flux capacitor to turn the biological waste in to electrical energy and release oxygen back in to the environment as a byproduct - pretty neat in fairness!

" knob that is located away from the blades" ...just too easy 🤪

Are there any decent chainsaw/angle grinder deals on here?

I believe there is a system update that allow you to ask Robo to go down the local shop to get you a newspaper and a can of cider. Coming soon is an update so it will walk the dog and take the bins out on rubbish collection day. Very versatile little machine..

Correct, let me know if you need any help posting a deal of your own, 2014 (your last one) is an awfully long time ago to contribute.
Great price. I don't even have a garden but I want one of these.
This is a great mower and I have had the same for about 3 years now and after cutting the guide wire into the lawn I have not had to cut the lawn except a bit of edge trimming, so would never go back to a convential mower.

Whilst the price is good it is worth noting that this was orignally released sevral years ago and you can get the newer version, the Flymo Easilife for about £500 (although price regularly swings up and down). I did this for my mother and it has a slightly better screen; rain sensor; grass height linked variable cutting and bluetooth. Some of these are gimicks but the rain sensor is useful and I would pay a little more given this mower came out last year.

However I voted hot on this!

No need to empty it as you are meant to have it running much more regularly, so it just needs to shave a couple mm off everytime. The cuttings go back onto the ground and decompose.

Mine runs every day in the early morning, being almost silent you dont even notice it.

No need to run it daily, that's going to over-stress the grass and cause unneeded wear on your mower. Every 4 days is more than frequent enough, even in the spring and autumn. Then every 30 days let it grow for a full week.

Don't forget that especially with mulching you need to scarify your lawn autumn/spring and make sure you feed appropriately, plus aeration if you want the best lawn on the street. Your thatch won't decompose quick enough and you'll end up with red thread or similar.

My garden is about 0.4 of an acre, but the best way to achieve a cut without stressing the lawn is setting it going for one duration for the time you calculate it will be cut.

Otherwise you're continually stressing it.

No need to “feed”the lawn. Grass clippings are probably the best thing to give your grass. I have a mulching ride on and the grass needs cutting twice a week. With the old mower that collected the grass, once every 10 days. If you’re wondering why feed is in “ “ plants make their own food.

Disagree, a natural fertiliser that's rich in N/P/K is always best practice if you want the best lawn. Have a look on Premier Lawns as a good mentor on Youtube. Mulching it good practice, but that's not in substitution for proper lawn care.

Avoid adding artificial products. They are no good for the environment. Taking and weeding by hand is a more sympathetic way to garden

Artificial? You see the word "natural"? There are plenty of products - like Seaweed - which are high in naturally occurring nutrients (N/P/K) that will give your lawn a huge boost.

I think you're stuck in your ways and you'd do well to research what is it you're talking about.

I don’t understand
The robot goes out daily (if you program it to). The blades take the tiniest little ends off the grass and those clippings end up in amongst the grass as mulch. This then rots down and returns the nutrients to the soil. I’ve had one now for two years and absolutely love it. You’re best off laying a 20 cm brick Mowing strip all the way around your garden then putting the Boundry wire between the bricks and the lawn. If you have a trampoline you may need to get inventive (like I have) to stop the robot from riding up over the stand and breaking its blades (I u-bolted some fence panels and stained them black so that the robot turns around when it gets to the trampoline – it can get in underneath the trampoline to cut).

Had the same issue with mine, 4 u shaped leg sections which if the mower (not this model) hit them at the right angle would break the blades and set off an alarm.

Solution is to take your boundary wire around one side of it front and back, but to leave a gap open), you need to measure how close the mower gets to to wire before stopping, I set mine around 8" clear of the metal on each side.

Works beautifully now, just a strim to finish it off. Probably haven't explained it too well, so message if you're unsure.
