Are you looking for efficient, state of the art equipment to take care of your lawn?
What if you had a robot mower to do the mowing for you, while saving time, money, and eliminating pollution?
There’s a lot to consider when it comes to mowing a lawn:
The cutting direction and pattern should be changed each time, mower blades should be sharpened every 10-12 hours of use, and no more than 1/3 of the lawn should be cut each time. And companies mowing multiple lawns should be cleaning weed seeds off the mower deck between properties. Mowers and the humans pushing them also cause compaction of soils over time, weakening the lawn.
Robot mowing eliminates all of these challenges!
Robot mowers come with self-recharging battery docks, which can even be connected to solar power. The mowers go back on their own to the charging station if the battery is low.
Built-in sensors detect buried guide wires (along fences, walls, driveways, and paths) to ensure the robot doesn’t go astray or miss any areas.
GPS tracking devices immobilize the mower if it is removed from its usual location and can be tracked by law enforcement. This technology renders robot mowers worthless to thieves as the mowers will only cut their designated lawn.
Robot mowers can cut up to 6 acres. However, some limitations include the complexity of the area you require to be mown and the steepness of any slopes, for example.
The Cutting System
Because a robot is mowing your lawn regularly, it only makes a fine cut. The clippings are so tiny they do not need collection and act as lawn fertilizer.
Low gravity centers allow robot mowers to handle steep areas without the risk of toppling over, working on slopes up to 25%.
The cutting blades are tucked under the mower, and guards and an automatic stopping mechanism prevent the blades from reaching fingers or toes. They have been on the market in Europe for over a decade with an impressive safety record. An automatic stopping mechanism halts the blades in a fraction of a second should it be lifted from the grass while in operation. However, like any power tool, do not allow children to play with a robot mower.
You can spend time doing other essential chores in the home or save money on a lawn service while your robot mower does the mowing.
You can control it from anywhere, with pre-programming or a smartphone app.
You will have healthy and attractive-looking grass along with the satisfaction that your lawn care is low-effort, quiet, and sustainable.
Thinking of investing in a robot mower?
We highly recommend that you purchase one of the major brands directly through an accredited company—if cost is an issue, they may be able to help you with financing or include their own fleet of robot mowers as part of a yard care service package.
