On the Cutting Edge: Facts About Robotic Lawn Mowers

Posted by ExperiGreen Lawn Care on Oct 23, 2017 3:00:00 PM
We’ve always enjoyed futuristic things at ExperiGreen Lawn Care. From science fiction to artificial intelligence to the latest in technological advances, if it’s futuristic – we’re interested!

So you can imagine our excitement when we started reading about robotic lawn mowers. After all, who truly enjoys mowing their lawn? Even more, who enjoys having to beg their kids to do it? Or to have to pay another company to do it – and incurring an ongoing weekly cost?

So the prospect of having a sleek cool looking robot do it for you is…tantalizing and fun!

What is the Reality of Robotic Lawn Mowers?

While Robotic Lawn Mowers sound like a pretty cool option for homeowners – there are some basic facts that one must consider when considering robotic lawn mowers. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
  • Cost
    Let’s be clear – robotic lawn mowers come with a four-digit price tag. Even then most basic no-frill option will have the homeowner spending $1,100. A mower with decent options will likely run you between $2,000 and $3,500. So that leads to the question: Is it worth it to pay the four-figure price tag associated with robotic lawn mowers?
    The ongoing cost of maintaining the robotic lawn mower will be significantly less than a conventional mower. Upkeep costs are typically less than $50 per year for robotic lawn mowers.
  • Power & Process
    Robotic lawn mowers are powered by rechargeable batteries and come with a charging station that can be plugged into any grounded outdoor or indoor outlet. They use very little energy to run and they do not release harmful emissions.
    The mower comes with a reel of low voltage wire that you place around the perimeter of your yard. This invisible fence guides your lawn mower, keeping it within its set boundaries. In a sense, the mower communicates with the boundary wires, guiding it through its pathway in your yard. Eventually, the mower is programmed to learn your yard – and will stay within a very accurate course as it mows your lawn. The mower can be programmed through an onboard control panel – with some more expensive models allowing for programming through wi-fi, a smartphone, or Bluetooth technology.
  • Time
    An average-priced, average-sized robotic mower will take approximately 3 hours to mow a 2,000 sq. ft. lawn that has a relatively straight configuration. This includes recharging time that will be needed once every 1-1.5 hours of average operation.
  • Other Considerations
    The robotic mower is able to navigate accurately around trees, rocks, flower beds, and other in-lawn obstacles that many lawns have.
    They are designed to operate safely around pets and children, with normal safety measures being applied that you would use if you were mowing the lawn in a conventional way.
    Robotic lawn mowers can operate during rain or a precipitation event – although as with normal mowers, the softer turf can more readily be damaged by a mowing during rain.

So is a Robotic Lawn Mower Right for You?

This is something that only you can answer. While no doubt a robotic lawn mower will make you the talk – and the envy – of the neighborhood, the minuses might outweigh the benefits for you as you consider the options.
