It's an expensive way to cut the grass, but it's £300 cheaper than anywhere else at the minute.

This Flymo Robotic Lawnmower 1200 R is a Lithium-ion powered automatic robotic lawnmower for gardens up to 400m2. The Flymo Robotic Mower is an easy and convenient way to make sure your lawn is looking great! This mower works by cutting an area defined by the perimeter wire, it cuts using no fixed path using a 'grazing' style so it's gentler on your lawn. This is much better for the grass!
This fantastic product also returns to charge itself when needed, which means less interaction needed from you! You can prevent mowing in certain periods, set the timer day specific or even week specific.

There is a large display to make use very easy and it comes with a security pin and an alarm.

AMAZON have now price matched if you'd prefer it delivered for free.

how can you get so lazy

I know, people will start using dishwashers next.

Or the wife

So how does it empty itself ... oO

Wow, I could buy this and not tell the old man then collect brownie points all summer for doing the grass.Brilliant. Hot for me.

It mulches the grass so no need to empty it.

I was skeptical at first, but a colleague of mine has one -

It goes out every other day and cuts and mulches a couple of millimetres of grass at a time, his lawn is now like a pool table.

I want one!

cool, but price is still too high for me, if it drops to around £250, id be interested.

Fantastic price. These are great.

Just get a cow or a goat. They'll eat the grass for you.

And then sh*t all over your nicely manicured lawn

so how does it deal with dog muck?

It lobs them into your next-door neighbour's garden when they are having a barbecue or have just hung out their washing to dry!

Do you even mulch bro ?

I know! If you can't be bothered to call your gardener in and get one of these instead - that's the epitome of laziness. +1

You have to surround the lawn where you don't want it to go using perimeter wire(s) which double as trip wires...

Now if it could just chase off cats it would be perfect.

DIY version...

There are plenty of Mowers costing over £500 and I would seriously consider this but for one major concern ... What is the life expectancy of the battery? - which will no doubt be very expensive to keep replacing. Does anybody have this or similar and can comment?

What’s the lifetime of the battery?

The battery is maintenance-free but has a limited life span of 2 to 4 years. Battery life is dependent on the length of the season and how many hours a day the Flymo Robotic Lawnmower 1200R is used. A long season or many hours of use a day means that the battery must be replaced more regularly.

New battery is £81.99 and installation instructions are in the manual.

Manual.

Just bought from Amazon. Got last one but back in 2-5 weeks. Best price for a mile for a long time but no doubt they are being reduced everywhere.

This seems a pretty inefficient way of cutting the grass. Looking at the video is it random? If so it could be cutting for a week and perhaps keep missing a section. Why don't they just design one that goes up and down as many lawns are fairly uniform in shape.

I was wondering exactly the same. There must be a point when it stops being random... Because as you say, it could just miss big patches?

My colleague's doesnt seem to miss any patches.

Cats and squirrels etc tend to get out of the way.

Any dead birds make a mess however...

Is there a sticker kit to pimp it to look like a Fresian cow?

I wonder if it's covered by house insurance? Most power tools will only be covered if locked away in the house, garage or shed.

What a rip off, I get my neighbour to do mine.

solution: buy a normal lawnmower and then give a Romanian kid some pocket money to the the lawn every week, after a year still would be cheaper and more entertaining than see a robot do the job.

OOS now and £900 on amazon....so expired. Anyone's arrived yet? is it any good?

Wait for your neighbour to buy one then cut a little hole in your fence just big enough for it to get through. It will think it's all the same garden (_;)
