Yeah let's mix blades and wonky electrics. Great idea
Does it collect the grass too? Then leave grassy poops on your lawn?
I want one!!!

One without too many twists and turns, relatively flat, no trees or split level, as it it's a pain to lay the guide wire, it's a good piece of kit, but the set up is annoying. I think the newer ones use smart AI, and gps, this version should be cheaper by now. Ps dont forget to put googly eyes on it, it comes alive. A cheap cover can be made from an ikea plastic storage box.

Google eyes. I never thought of doing that. Genius. 😁

£400 is a bit rich though, since I only cut my grass once a year.

Still worth it. It's so calming to see the little fella, doing its stuff, it changes direction of cut, mulching the lawn, at every outing, while we relax with a glass of prosecco, virtually silent too, so it can go out late at night. We laugh and tut, at our neighbour's dragging their mowers out of their shed's and furiously, tugging at the pull starter cord, then bagging and disposing of their grass cuttings, and generally shattering our peaceful Sunday bbq 😡

Mulches it. Returns it back to the grass, nutrients and all.

Duck me!! Only wanted to see if the robot lawnmower was worth it.
Lets bring this back on topic (and keep it there)...I have two because there are two separate parts to our garden. They can mow a much larger area than advertised. Ours do about 600m2 each no problem.

I had one for 18 months it saved me no time at all as it was hypnotic and I had to watch it work. The lawn never looked better, it works in all weather too.
But, I had to return it when it wouldn’t move 2 inches without thinking there was a collision and turning round to find another imaginary obstacle there too.
It’s pretty old now and I’m guessing there must newer smart mowers now for not much more, that map your lawn rather than just bumbling around looking like it’s on the way home from the pub after 12 pints.
Do these need an outside mains connection for the charger or could you charge them indoors? How long does the battery last, could it mow a 10x5m lawn multiple times on a single charge?

They're not that smart but they are very effective. I don't think one with mapping would utlimately do any better a job, it would just get it done a little faster. App control would be a good addition though. I'll consider upgrading if they add that in the next version.

Yes, they do need outdoor power. I dripped a hole through out garage wall and pushed the low voltage cable through it.

I think your garden is too small to make this worthwhile personally, but it would work. The mower is rated to 8x that size and can easily do 12x.

It's more that we're lazy :P we currently pay someone to mow the lawn every couple of weeks but their standard doesn't match our landlord's definition of a "well maintained lawn". Since it's a rental there's no drilling allowed but we could run a cable through a window frame probably, especially if it's low voltage so damaging it's fairly safe.
Got one a few years back - fantastic for keeping the lawn trimmed - problem is that it wears down the edges and an uneven lawn or obstacles sometimes break the blades (very small). Might be to do with the settings?

Ok, makes sense. The low voltage cable is quite thin so that should work

Maybe. We've had ours 2+ years and never broken a blade.

Hi nick, how long do they take to do the 600msq? I really want to get one but we have quite a large garden (approx 800sqm) with several large trees and I really can't see this managing it without taking over a day and a few recharges.
We had one of these a few years back, it was great! Saved us having to mow the lawn. However he did used to eat through his cable every now and then, but this was a rare occurrence. Sadly he’s now in retirement.
On a serious note - how close to an edge will these things cut? I've got a circular lawn edged by stones - will it cut right up to the edges of the stones?
In case they get removed do they have a GPS tracker and alarm in?

No GPS tracker but there is an alarm
Not equal to the best price on amazon. I paid £350 on prime day a few years back.

no it will leave a small border which will need strimming. Unless the stones are flush with the ground.

That's the fault of the installer then not the mower. If the cables are buried properly as the manual suggests it will never cut through the cable.
