Lawn Mowers - Quick Info
|This section provides a general
overview of the robotic lawn mowers to help you decide if
it will fit your lifestyle., Plain and Simple
Since the invention of the power mower,
people have been locked into a weekly task that most could
live without. Since 1999, robotic mowers have been allowing
people to do just that. Can you imagine being able to do
other things instead of pushing around a screaming engine
and breathing exhaust fumes?
RL-1000 Robomower Docking for Recharge
Would you rather be:
- Breathing exhaust fumes or smelling
the roses as you cut them?
- Listening to a screaming engine
or the song of a bird?
- Sweating on your lawn or swimming
in a pool?
- Rubbing your eyes due to allergies
or resting them on the patio?
- Storing / pouring gasoline or
pouring a cold drink?
- Raking your lawn or raking sand
in a sand trap?
These are pretty easy answers for most
people which is why these robots are becoming more popular
every day. The real question is: Will
it work on MY Lawn?
|The main questions:
|Does your lawn have
hills, fences, walls or other barriers that separate lawn
If it does and is below 1/2
of an acre a Robomower would probably be the best choice since
you can operate it in a number of separated areas. You just
need to decide if the totally automatic RL-1000 makes sense
(automatically mow one area with the option of manually starting
it in others) or the RL-850.
|If your lawn does not have
any barriers and hills are not steeper than the manufacturer
specifies, you just need to choose a model. The lawn must
be reasonably smooth like the average suburban lawn.
|Do you have narrow areas?
Narrow areas are better handled
by the Lawnbott series due to their size and random pattern.
Although the Robomower models use a much more advanced navigation
system, this same system (and larger dimensions) makes them
have a hard time in areas of less than 10 feet wide.
|Do you like a Turtle
or a Hare?
Yes, this is a serious question.
In the tale of the turtle and the hare, one goes slow and
steady and the other runs hard and rests. Both get to the
finish line and in this case will both keep your lawn looking
great. The Lawnbott, as the hare, nibbles at the lawn but
works much more, as much as 20 hours a day if your lawn size
and growth require it. The Robomower can cut grass like a
traditional mower for one session averaging 3 hours. It has
the power to mow even as little as once a week.
|How Big is the Lawn
Use the table below to convert
your lawn Acreage to square feet. Then just view the models
that you are interested in by using the navigation on the
Square footage to acreage equivalents
(all are approximate to make calculation easier and a true
acre = 43,560 square feet)
1/4 Acre = 11,000 square feet
1/3 Acre = 15,000 square feet
1/2 Acre = 22,000 square feet
2/3 Acre =29,000 square feet
3/4 Acre = 33,000 square feet
1 Acre = 44,000 square feet
We not only sell robotic mowers, we use them as well. We believe
that they are good for the environment and promote domestic
