Robot mower reviews – compare models

Doing the research on robot mower reviews isn’t easy. That’s why we’ve done it for you.We’ve trawled the internet to find independent reviews of various models, including our own, where we can. There have been reviews done recently by PCmag, and by lawnmowerreview.org, which cover the major models.
 
The table below repeats the information from PCmag, with links to the detailed reviews written by themselves and others. Where our mowers are not covered, we’ve written a review in the style that they would write it (just in case you think we’re being biased).
 
If you were to ask us what’s important for a robot mower, you might be surprised. We would say:
  • A powerful battery. A more powerful battery will drive a mower for longer, and allow it to do more work. It will also contain more ‘cells’ which makes it less susceptible to an individual cell being faulty.
  • A fast cutting motor. At least 3000 rpm. And to drive the motor, you need a powerful battery.
  • Sharp cutting blades. But the swivel type, not the fixed type. A fixed blade running at high rpm presents a safety issue. Having sharp blades also reduces the load on the cutting motor, so blades should be changed regularly.
Others may say tech gimmicks like WiFi etc are important. But If you’re going to spend a lot of time using Wifi connection to your mower, then there’s not much difference in that to mowing the lawn yourself. To find out more about our mowers see our blog about getting the Robot Zoo Wombat mower ready for summer.
