Robotic Mower – Which one for my lawn?
The Robotic Mower
Robotic vacuum cleaners have been around for some time but the Robotic Mower is relatively new to the market.
Here we will discuss a little more about how they work, what features to look for and how to choose the right one for your lawn.
Why buy a robotic mower when traditional lawn mowers have done the job for years?
No more gas mower servicing.
More free time while the robotic mower does the job for you.
Some distance between you and those allergy causing particles.
Less time being exposed to those harmful sun rays.
Frequent mowing means a perfect carpet like lawn every time with no weeds.
How do Robotic Mowers work?
A base station is installed that connects to your house mains. This base station is where the robotic mower lives and gets charged when it’s not mowing the lawn.
A guide wire that starts at the base station is run along the perimeter of the area to be so that the mower knows where all the edges are. At the end of it’s mowing cycle it will return to base on its own to continue charging, ready for the next day’s mowing.
Complex areas can be broken up into zones and using various accessories these zones can also be dealt with by the robotic mower.
Every day, the mower cuts a few millimeters of grass and leaves the clippings on the ground, fertilizing your lawn in a natural way.
Obstacles are easily handled with the robotic mower detecting obstacles and mowing around them.
