Yes, thanks to the deal on chocolate fingers that you posted just before Christmas 😜

This is one of the best things you can do for your garden.

The majority of people cut their grass and Chuck the clippings in the bin. This thing cuts it in tiny 1mm lengths which go back into the ground, giving you healthy soil and grass. Since getting one two years ago our grass is vibrant and healthy and we use the garden loads more
Good deal.........lowest price I have seen.
one of the best pieces of kit I have ever bought. Laying boundary bit time consuming.
Grass looks good all year round.

How much for the security guard to protect it though?

Just bought one a few weeks ago. Still having issues with it cutting my chia pets. Any suggestions?
Good price ... tempted to get another one.

Good price. My lawn looks so much healthier for this style of cutting and gives me time to do other things instead.

It's got a built-in alarm. You have to enter a PIN to disable.
Excellent price and a good product.
Presumably 10 metres is the maximum range of the wireless signal. So a circle of about ten metres round the recharge point.
Hmm. probably keyed together otherwise you could use multiple charge points if it didn't confuse its brain
I’ve had this model since the spring. It saves me a lot of time in the long run. It’s paid itself back. I work from home so every hour saved is back in the bank. However, I did spend quite a bit of money and time laying a 20cm wide red block paving mowing strip around my back garden so the the entire grass is cut. If you don’t do something similar (or build your borders up level with the grass, you’ll end up with a 20cm strip of grass to cut all the way around you lawn - almost pointless if that’s how you’re going to set it up). “Mo” as we call “him” is like a pet to the family now. I payed £450 at the start of the growing season and that was the cheapest it had been. £400 is a good price - Well worth it in the long run.

Do you have a photo of the paving mowing strip? Doesn't have to be of yours, but seeing one will help me understand better.
Thanks in advance

I see, so you're saying if you rely on it hitting something, it won't mow up to it. there's a 20cm gap between it and the blades. But you could have buried a wire?
I saw one at Leeds castle in Kent mowing the narrow border between the castle and the moat. I wonder if it has fallen in yet.
Anyone any experience of gardens where the turf isn't just a square plot?
I'm presuming it can do curves etc if you use the buried wire approach?

Yeah I have one.. I used a spade to cause cuts in the grass then buried the wire round edges, corners and curves, the lawnmower will just take a little more time taking turns to cut around curves moving forward and back.
My garden also inclines which the mower has no worry climbing.

Thanks, the plot is square now but probably won't remain that way for too long so good to know it should cope

If it bumps in something it will turn around and go in a different direction. You bury a wire and it cuts up to the wire but turns around. The problem is that you can’t bury the wire up to the edge of a border if it’s not level, otherwise the robot will drop into the border and get stuck. There are plenty of videos you can look at online to get a better idea. With things that it bumps into it will leave a 30cm uncut strip. There will need be a 20cm strip between the wire and the edge of a border.

This was the border I put in back in April/May. The bricks are exactly 20cm long which is exactly the width required.

No. You bury a boundary wire, connected at both ends to the charging/docking station. The robot senses a signal on the wire and stops then turns round. It also has a guide wire which it latches onto when it needs to recharge or when it’s finished its scheduled mowing and heads home for a snooze!

If anyone picks it up it alarms very loudly. If you don’t put the correct pin in it’s no use to anyone. It comes with a sticker that you can choose to add to the outside explaining this. It’s useless if stolen. Mine has survived all year without some light fingered scrote stealing it.
Decent price. I have a robomow for about 1/3 acre and my wife initially went crazy when I ordered it as it was £1300 + £100 for a guy to come and bury a wire (which he had a special roller machine that took 5 mins - less about that). After she saw it working for 30 seconds she was completely convinced and now thinks it’s the best thing I’ve ever bought. Must say it’s great waking up in the morning and seeing the little red light flashing knowing the turf will look good at minimal effort!!!
Like the idea of this, but have a lot of leaves, twigs falling from the tree and also birds nesting and pooing in the garden.
Also it’s quite slopey and has a few dips.

How do you think it’ll manage m?
Strange camelcamelcamel are saying its cheapest its been. Was 350 on prime day.

Awesome tool and still good price for what it is

Given how slow they move and how much knock avoidance they have, I fear that'd prove to be a very dull encounter.

It'll cope with some sticks and leaves. If you're talking branches, it might struggle with that. You can set the cutting height. If you set it to high it will probably cope with most things (and it's better for the grass as it will develop a deeper root system which will cope with lack of rain in the summer much better). Once every so often it pays to just wander the lawn and pick up anything which might present a hazard. At this time of year, clearly leaves may begin to become a problem. It's just a matter of ensuring that not too much debris builds up really. Bird poo won't be a problem of any sort for it. It just chops leaves up etc.

Yeh it’s mostly twigs, that’s interesting. Doesn’t mashed up leaves ruin the grass though? We have quite a lot already and imagine it’ll be littered with them in months to come
Our one failed to detect a partially filled paddling pool and drove and sliced it's way through one side carried on through a few inches of water and out the other side, I heard some odd noises before I realised what had happened! Hasn't affected it at all, it also has a constant battle shaving some exposed tree roots - next season I'll fence these off I think. Overall I'm very impressed.

It uses the boundary wire as an arial. I think the size limitation is more to do with the width of the cutting area and the amount of ground it can cover - too big an area and it just won't be able to keep up.
We have two with their own areas that abut in the middle of the lawn. There are a few tufts that neither get, which I strim every couple of months.
How would something like this cope with seperate lawns at the front and the back, with no chance of linking the guide wire between the two?

You’ll need to start raking them up. Yes.
jutsubay08/10/2019 19:37

You can run the boundary wire (not the guide wire) around to a front section but you would have to lift the robot to the front and put it in manual.
Great product. I know three people with these now... brilliant.
I'm sorely tempted - this could save me a lot of time, I have quite a lot of lawn with a low ornamental box hedge round the edge on two sides, can I let it bounce off the hedge or do I have to install the wires round all the wiggly bits of hedge?
