2906636.jpgI have had this in my camel search for about a year and (apart from a very brief drop to £439) this is the best price it has been. Sadly I can't afford to buy it right now but hopefully come in useful for anyone in search of a robotic lawnmower

Hmm, wonder if I could just remove the outer casing then enter robot wars with it!

The first time I saw one was at the Chelsea Flower Show, as my husband worked in the computing department of the RHS. It was something incredible like £5-10,000. I don't remember exactly, as it didn't register as something I could afford!A quarter of a century later, I'm widowed and dating a horticulturalist (pure coincidence!) and was being given a pre-opening tour of the Hampton Court show. And the mower was there! And it had even acquired a little dog house. Well, the dog house is actually its shelter and charging point. I didn't check to see if it was just a whimsical charming addition or if they actually do come with a cute little house.

Do it yourself and get some excersize
Bought, now I need to buy the lawn.
And the garden
I shouldn't... but I will!
Much cheaper than the John Deere, and can't see any huge differences.
It's going to be wonderful to clean if you have dogs
Cant see the point of this until it can auto empty....

It doesn't hold grass, just chops it up. Meant to be used every few days or so.
Highly recommended, if you have a big garden. I've had two for almost a year. They've been brilliant. Good price too, though I expect them to get even cheaper in the next few months
Personally I'd prefer something based on the xiaomi vacuum tech with LIDAR mapping if you don't have a square garden, its likely they'll release something this year
That's cheap!
Anyone know the length of lead on the charging station and how it's made waterproof?

10m. It has connectors with rubber seals on. I found the connectors on ebay and made a 30m cable which works fine.

Great deal... My lawn mower cost £45 and keeps me active...

It chops it up, and leaves the tiny bits on the lawn. The idea is that it mows often, so only a small amount of cuttings are generated per square metre, and will not smother the lawn.
I had no idea such a thing exists! This would free up at least 2 hours a week from April to October. That's 56 hours a year. What's worth more, my time or this amount of money. Is my time worth £10 an hour. Yes. I think so. Do the rest of my family thing so? Hmmm.

You have to chase it and empty every 5 mins?

No. It trims and chucks it on the ground.
Because it's doing it often, there is little to cut, so there isn't a lot to chuck on the ground, so it just vanishes into the growing grass.
I got this exact model 2 years ago from Amazon, brand new, for £350, so it certainly has been cheaper (albeit with £250 off in a daily deal).

I think it's brilliant. I hate doing the lawn, so just setting this off to do its thing is amazing. I have it mow every 2 days, so it's literally shaving off a couple millimetres of grass. It mulches it, so it effectively turns the grass into a fertiliser.

Grass has never looked so healthy and green.

Took about 2 hours to lay out the wires, and occasionally it gets stuck on an incline or a random stone, but beyond that, it's been superb.

My only concern is that I can't lay wires for both the front and back lawns, as they need to be connected to the base unit. Without the wires, it doesn't know where it is.

It also mows in a random pattern, so it takes about 2-3 hours to mow my lawn. Also, it can on occasion run out of charge before finding its base station, but that's only happened a couple of times.

Will this chase any visiting cats trying to take a dump in my garden?

The question we are all dying to find out is does he mow your lawn?
I’ve had this for a year now and it’s absolutely brilliant. Does a cracking job if you’re not fussed about lines and never failed to dock itself. I have it on a twice a day 1.5 hour cycle and it maintains our lawn perfectly. Really happy with it. I paid £490 at very by using the take three credit payments whilst they had a 20% off first credit order offer on.

Highly recommended

I’ve never had any of these issues so suspect it’s the line laying that has caused the charge thing. It should cross the return wire every third turn minimum based on its pattern. Might be worth re-reading the instructions as mine is out twice a day and has never failed to dock in over a year

It mows the lawn very well

I bought a kennel for mine to protect it from the elements. It is worth it.

It trims so often the grass has hardly anything to trim off it so are 1-2mm cuttings which fall back onto the ground and essentially fertilises the soil again

Then imagine if it lasts 5-8 years the cost becomes much much less

Lucky you that you have enough time in the day for this. I wish I did but it would take me away from the previous time I have with my kids so I opted for this. I can manually mow the lawn when the kids have left home. I’m prioritising

Some videos on YouTube or mower wars and kids riding these too. Some people vinyl them up as ladybirds and so on

Oh dear
I would put the money towards laying artificial grass. With the quality of the grass I wish I had put it in years ago.

Aren't your kids allowed in the garden?

Aren't your kids allowed in the garden?


Yeah
If only they sold wife’s
Id be a bit annoyed if a £500 mower got pinched, a £45 one not as much pesky thieves
Stop being lazy and just cut the grass yourselves. It's your duty as a man. If you can't even cut the grass, you are basically totally useless lol.
Would this be any good for a 4ftx10ft garden?
