Number 4: Bosch Indego Cordless Lithium-ion Robotic Lawnmower
Bosch offer a great robotic mower in their massive range of power tools. This is a brand that is renowned for quality and has a reputation for delivering tools for the home and professionals that are of the highest quality. The Indigo is built with the same care and detail to give a cordless automatic mower that has a large range for some pretty big lawns. The budget range machine is a very fine example of how the technology should be built and has many happy customers.
The sensor technology means the Indigo knows where it is going and will cut every bit of your lawn, if it needs a charge mid way through it will take itself off to the charge point and top itself up before returning to exactly the point that it stopped and carry on cutting. You decide on the lawn height and then let it go to work in most weather conditions, even if it is raining it will still keep the lawn in immaculate condition. Such a great tool to add to your garden armoury and by buying Bosch you are purchasing a very reliable brand. We’ve got even more detailed information in our Bosch Indego review.
Number 5: Zucchetti AMBROGIO L85 Robot Lawn Mower
Zuchetti offer a mid range machine that is built to tackle some big gardens and some tough terrains. The Ambrogio is a robot mower that will take on some pretty steep slopes and also some very sizeable lawns that you will only find in very large houses, for most of us it will take on our lawns with ease. This very quiet mower will work away while you relax, no more chugging away of a petrol engine in the garden that is so noisy, you can sit back and relax knowing that when you are ready to step outside you will have a perfectly cut lawn.
The battery powered motor is very powerful and quiet and will grip all around awkward corners of the garden taking itself back to the charge point when it needs to. The programmable mower can be set up exactly for your lawn so that you get the perfect cut for your lawn. It will cut in all weathers and all year round so you can make the most of those windows of dry weather no matter what time of day and keep the garden looking good all year round. We all get a bit slack in the winter and the garden can look a bit scruffy. Its easily solvable with the Zucchetti Ambrogio robot mower.
Number 6: Husqvarna Automower 320 Robot Lawn Mower
This is a luxury range robot mower from Husqvarna and offers some big features for the money. Husqvarna are renowned for making some pretty robust tools for serious hard work and this robot mower is definitely up to some big tasks. The range on this one is big and will take on some pretty vast lawns that would be cut by ride on mowers. The powerful motor will chug around a large lawn giving you a fantastic cut even if the lawn is on a steep slope. If you have a small lawn then this is maybe a bit of overkill for your garden and it may be looking at the smaller mid range or budget machines.
The technology on this mower is second to none and can even cut the grass when it needs it by calculating its grow rate! That is impressive and something many of us with large lawns would absolutely love. If you are lucky enough to have a very large garden there is nothing worse than looking out of the window knowing there is a couple of hours hard work to cut the lawn. Well this is the one to stop those long jobs. A great robotic mower for the big jobs!
Number 7: AL-KO ROBOLINHO 100 Robot Lawn Mower
The ALKO Robolihno is a good robot mower that has a fairly large cutting area for the budget. Certainly suitable for lawns in most houses and will deal with them with ease. You can choose your cutting height and get the robot mower set up perfectly for your garden. The blades are rust proof and will chop up the grass into fine pieces to drop into the lawn leaving no clippings to be picked up as you go.
The ALKO will charge itself and its Lithium battery has plenty of life to power the mower around some large complicated lawn areas. The sloped gardens will be dealt with easily stopping the need for pushing a heavy petrol engine up and down some really awkward slopes. A good mower that is well priced for the mid sized lawns but has some stiff competition to compete with such as the Robomow range and the Bosch.
Number 8: Robomow RS630 Automatic Robotic Lawnmower
The premium Robomow robotic mower is a beast of a mower that will take on massive lawns. The largest lawns are usually looked after by mini tractor mowers that chug along with a very wide cut to manage the vast expanse. These tractors are big and noisy and require maintenance and time to keep you lawn in great condition. Well the Robomow RS630 is ready to take on these tractors with countless advantages. Its quiet so no more noisy engines, it works while you are relaxing and it requires very little in the way of maintenance. This sounds to good to be true! For large lawns this is the future of mowers and will make managing a large garden a doodle.
Robomow really are experts in this field, building robotic mowers for all of the market from the small garden to the large expanse of lawn that would require a lot of care. It is an expensive machine but when balanced with the cost of a tractor or hiring a gardener to look after your lawn it is fantastic investment that you won’t regret. If you have a big garden this is definitely the one for you, so take a look at the complete RS630 review.
Number 9: Mythos Basic Robot Lawn Mower
The Mythos Basic is a very different robotic mower to the others and stands out in its rugged looks. The mower has four chunky wheels that are all the same size and it is a four wheel drive mower. This gives it great grip and manoeuvrability in the awkward and steep bits of the garden. It looks like it can take on some serious terrain and it can. It has a fairly large range and is capable of small to medium sized lawns. The motor is powered by some pretty serious lithium batteries that are charged by plugging the mower into the mains cable, once charged it has a long work time..
The set up of the Mythos is easy and does not need the wire to mark out the garden, it will use its sensors to work out where it needs to go to cut. This is an ideal robot mower for a complicated lawn that has a lot of obstacles where the other marked out area mowers will struggle. If you think your garden may be a bit tricky to use a robotic mower then maybe the Mythos Basic is for you. It has easy to pick up grand handles and is easy to spot with the yellow top.
Number 10: Robomow RS622 Automatic Robotic Lawnmower
This is another large and powerful robotic lawnmower from Robomow and one that has some great features. This model sits just under the RS630 model but shares some of its fantastic features that enables you to keep your lawn in pristine condition all year round with the absolute minimum of fuss. The range is large and will easily tackle some very big gardens, the range is not quite that of the RS630 so it is worth measuring your lawn before deciding between the two. The sensors guide the mower effortlessly around the lawn making sure every inch is cut on a regular basis and keeping it tidy.
The base station is connected to the mains by a chord and the mower will return to be charged on its own when it needs it. Even if the cut requires a couple of charges the RS622 will start cutting exactly where it left off. This will make your large lawn a really usable space again that can be enjoyed year round not just when you have the time to cut it. The Robomow range has a mower for every lawn so check the dimensions of what you require and you will not be disappointed by the machine you purchase. Here’s our Robomow RS622 review.
Why Choose A Robotic Mower
Reading reviews and watching videos of robot mowers make all of us jump up and rush out to buy one to manage the lawn and save us a lot of time. But in reality there are so many benefits to having one of these mowers that we thought we would list them to really get you thinking about how you can improve your home and lifestyle. The automatic mowers really are the future of lawn care and grass cutting offering features that conventional push mowers and tractor mowers cannot come close to competing with.
Below are some of the reasons why you should choose one, I think that there will be some big advantages for everyone!
Just think about how long it takes you to cut the lawn. You have to get the mower out of the shed or the garage then actually walk up and down the garden until it is done. A mid size lawn can easily take an hour and in the summer this needs doing twice a week to keep the lawn in good shape. Two hours just to cut the lawn is a lot of work for many people that have busy work and family lives, taking time out to manage the lawn means sacrificing time doing the things you enjoy.
A robot mower will take all of this hassle away and will cut the lawn for you while you are at work or in the evenings giving you much more time to concentrate on the fun things in life. Quite often the garden will become an even bigger job of the lawn isn’t cut regularly but with a robot mower it will do it whenever it is needed.
Lets face it a nasty old petrol mower is not an energy efficient piece of machinery. With the price of fuel quite high and inefficient cheap engines they are not the greenest things. Even a push along electric mower will still mean that you will cut some bits twice as you go backwards and forward over them.
The robot mower is a light and energy efficient invention that runs on very little power. It has a small motor that is more than powerful enough to do the job but is not a drain on the batteries so each cut will not cost you much and will also be a lot better for the environment. The sensors know which areas of the lawn it has cut and will make sure it goes over ever every bit as efficiently as possible. If you have solar panels that generate power during the day this can be used to charge the mower for a free charge and a very eco friendly lawn mower indeed.
If you have a large lawn that requires a tractor to cut it a large robot mower will really be super efficient in comparison. The weight of a tractor means the amount of fuel it uses to pull you and the mower around is large. The light robot mower will use the same amount of energy per square metre as a small lawn. Definite economies of scale!
Huge Space Saving
We’ve all experienced the nightmare of fitting the really awkward size of a push mower in the shed with the handle poking out and taking up loads of valuable space. The tractor mowers are even worse and require a whole shed or garage to house them. A robot mower is a small bit of kit that is not a great deal bigger then a medium size box and can be stored on a shelf or in the corner of a garage giving you back loads of space. The mower can even be left on the charge point and small garages can be bought to sit over the top of them. Be careful that someone doesn’t steal you mower if this is the case. With many house very limited for storage this is a large befit to a robotic mower that is overlooked but one that to many people may be the deciding factor in the purchase.
Peace And Quiet
On a weekend a lot of us want to sit out in the garden to get a nice bit of piece and quiet after a busy week at work. The reality is that the lawn will probably need cutting. The robot mowers have very quiet electric engines that will run along for hours with out making any noise and will not disturb you. You can be sat down having a cup of tea and reading a book while the mower silently cuts the lawn ready for you and the family to use later in the day.
Keep Your Garden Looking Great
There is nothing better then a freshly cut lawn to look out over when the sun is shining but this can take a lot of work. Often we let the lawn go and then the garden starts to look very tatty a bit of a mess. The robotic mowers will cut the lawn as many times in the week as is needed to keep it looking tip top. They will work in most weathers so the lawn can be kept in great condition all year round. No more looking out of the window in the winter to a horrible uncut lawn. The more frequently the lawn is cut the better it will look and the grass will all be very even in length with no nasty toughs. The robotic mower will definitely transform the look of your garden!
Keep The Lawn In Good Condition
The most important thing to do with your lawn to keep it in good condition is to keep it cut. This will control the weeds and not let them take hold and will keep the water from sitting on in the grass and on the soil and turning the lawn into a bog. Robot mowers will keep the lawn cut to the length you set which will help keep it healthy. They also mulch the grass which chops up the blades of grass into small chunks and drops it into the lawn which is a constant feed for the lawn. In a matter of no time your lawn will become a lot more healthy and will look a lot better.
Cut The Lawn When You Are Out
As well as being effortless to cut the lawn using a robotic mower you also don’t need to be around. The mower can be programmed to be cut whenever you like and can even be started from a smart phone app for some models. This means that the mower can run at convenient times for you when you are off doing other things. You don’t have to sit and watch it once you have got over the shock of how well it cuts the lawn.
As you can see the benefits are massive and can save you time, money and keep the garden in great condition. If cutting the lawn is an issue for you or it it time that you could do with getting back for other things we would strongly advise you to read some of the in depth reviews and improve your garden.
