Now let’s take a look at the mid range robot lawn mower from Robomow the RC312. This is designed to take the headache of looking after a mid size lawn that can take a long time to cut, especially in mid summer when it can take a couple of cuts a week to keep it looking good.
The RC312 will allow you to get on with things you enjoy while it keeps the lawn in fantastic condition all year round. The majority of us are not keen gardeners and the thought of a few hours a week spent mowing is not fun. Now you can sit back and have a beautiful family lawn with no effort.
The Robomow RC312 Review
This is a high end robot lawn mower that will cut large lawns very regularly giving a fantastic finish. If you have a large lawn and like it to look good all of the time then this is a great alternative to a gardener or ride on mower. The high end finish is created by the smart mowing pattern and great edging capabilities. It will deal with large lawns of up to 1,200 square metres and cut slopes of up to 36% making it a very versatile mower. Once you own a Robomow RC312 you will not go back to standard mower.
- Perfect lawn all year round.
- Scheduled cuts.
- Cuts steep slopes.
- 3 year warranty.
There are very few cons to the RC312 but here are a couple.
- High initial cost.
- Needs setting up.
- Won’t go up or down drops or steps
Installing the Robomow RC312 is a really easy job that only needs doing once. You need to map out your lawn by pegging down a wire into the edge of the lawn. The wire and pegs come in the box. The time it takes will depend on how many zones you need to map out and how many borders, trees and other obstacles you need to go around. Once this is in you just need to place the mower on the charge station and schedule the cut times and let it go. It’s a couple of hours well spent as once you are set up you can sit back and enjoy your garden.
Value For Money
This depends on how much you value you time and enjoy mowing the lawn. If your lawn is over 1,000 metres square you will be spending a lot of time maintaining it, paying someone to look after it or just letting it go. This mower is great value for money as an alternative to a gardener or a ride on mower and will get you hours of free time back when you want it in the summer. The initial outlay is large but you are buying from one of the leading brands in robot lawn mowers. We think it is great value, there are cheaper versions on the market but most will not cover this lawn size or will not have the features.
Keeping the family and pets safe is an important consideration when purchasing a robot mower. This mower has many features that make it a very safe mower. The lift and tilt sensors immediately cut out the blades when the RC312 is lifted off the floor or tilts over too far. There is a PIN code so no one can alter the cutting schedule or work the mower without entering it and there is an alarm in case it is picked up off the charge station. The scheduling also allows your lawn to be cut in the early hours or late at night when nobody is in the garden.
The Robomow RC312 Features
This is a high end mower that is packed with features for a great finish to your lawn. Have a read through below.
Scheduled Mowing And Robomow App
The robomow RC312 can be set up to cut the lawn at any time of day or night by setting up a cutting schedule. It will cut the lawn every day if you would like it to. The schedule can be set on the mower itself or through the Robomow App. This is great if you are away from home a lot and need to alter the mowing times.
Self Charging Battery
The battery is a powerful 26 volt lithium ion battery that is designed to last a long time and power the RC312 around a large lawn. The mower will cut for around an hour before heading back for a charge of about an hour and a half. The sensors will tell the robot when it need a charge and will take itself back to the base station to fully charge before heading out for another cut.
The 28cm blades cut a wider area than the wheel base which means the edging capabilities are far superior to a lot of models on the market meaning you don’t have to go around finishing off edges of the garden that are not cut.
Fast Lawn Cutting
With the wide cutting blades and the turbo mode the RC312 will power through cutting the lawn making sure it done a lot quicker then a lot of Robot Lawnmowers. The mowing width is a large 28cm.
Efficient And Quiet Motor
The brush less electric motor is very efficient to run compared to a petrol mower and will quietly keep you lawn in great condition. The noise it generates is under 70 decibels which is significantly quieter than its petrol rivals.
The RC312 will sense when it is raining and return to its charge station or re schedule the cut when it is raining. For the best finish it is better to cut the lawn when it is not raining.
Zone Mowing For Multiple Lawns
You can map out up to six zones of lawn to be cut. This is great if your lawn is broken down into many areas. As long as they are connected by a level surface that is not too steep without any steps the Robomow RC312 will go between the zones cutting it with no problem. It will even cut the front and back lawn as long as it is able to trundle between the two.
To sum it up this is a great robotic mower that will give you a lawn that is perfectly finished all year round. You and the family can enjoy the garden in the sunny days rather then use them to sort the garden out. The features on this are high end and Robomow offer a good 3 year warranty for piece of mind. With our lives getting more and more busy this will take away another mundane task and also add to your home buy giving you a great lawn. A really great robotic lawnmower that will last you many years.
