August 5 2008 GARDEN NEWS 31 TESTEDNo-nonsense reviews of new products. The robotic mower. By Neil Pope, GARDEN NEWS EDITOR

TRANSPORTING
To safely move the mower from or within the working area there is a remote control available as an accessory. The mower is light enough to be lifted manually by using a specially designed carrying handle (right).

CUTTING HEIGHT
Adjusting the height of cutting is a simple task of turning a knob found by lifting up the mowers cover.

CONTROLS
On which day and at what time you want the mower to cut the lawn can be programmed. The timing of the next cutting is shown.

BLADE
There is a single blade. It gives an exceptional cut to the lawn and its edges. The mower works in a criss-cross action to leave a clean finish. Grass clippings are mulched into the lawn.

ROBOMOW 400 AND BASE STATION
WOULD you trust a robot to cut your lawn? I did last year and was extremely pleased with the results. Unfortunately, the robotic mower had to be returned to the manufacturer after testing so it was back to manually mowing.

But when I was invited to give its latest model a test, I obviously jumped at the chance.

The Robomow 400 is much smaller than the model I tested last year. Instead of three blades it has one and is over 200 cheaper.

The mower I tested came with its own base station. Its designed to depart from the base station at the pre-set days and times, and at the end of each session it returns for charging until the next scheduled operation. In other words, once the initial set-up is complete, you dont have to do a thing. Your lawn will be cut even when you are away from home.

Robomow requires a one-off simple set-up. A standard electric wire is laid around the outer edges of the lawn with pegs every few metres. The wire, which is connected to the base station, will eventually be covered by grass and become unnoticeable within a matter of weeks.

The Robomow recognises the wire using a special sensor and makes sure it always stays inside the perimeter. I did have one or two minor hiccups on one occasion it careered off into a flowerbed, and on another it crashed into the base station and somehow became wedged against a side panel. But since these things were sorted out, the Robomow has performed well. The cut is exceptional and the grass clippings are mulched back into the lawn itself. Impressive stuff.

TEST NOTES Positives: I was a little concerned that with only one small mower blade, the cut wouldnt be very impressive. But I was soon proved wrong on that score. The cut is exceptional. Another plus point is there are no clippings to collect, and the mulched grass provides nutrients to keep the lawn looking green and healthy. It also takes away the hassle of mowing the lawn, allowing you to get on with other garden tasks.

Negatives: You need to spend a little time to set things up in the first place putting the perimeter wire in place, positioning the base station and connecting everything up. Its worth taking time because once everything is running smoothly, the Robomow takes over.

Verdict: It has to be five out of five even considering the initial teething problems. .What is costs The Robomow 400 (with base station) costs 859 or (without base station) 599. .How to find it Call 0845 123 5844 or visit the website www.mower-magic. co.uk

Robomow Gets 10 out of 10 from Garden News Magazine


Neil Pope from Garden News magazine took the Robomow for a test drive. Read his review in the issue dated 29th August 2007. He gave the machine a rating of 10 out of 10 - "I am won over by the Robomow. Before I saw it in action I thought it was a big gimmick, but it didn't take me long to be convinced of its worth. The prices may seem a little steep but in response to that I would consider buying one for the following reasons:

1. The cut is exceptional
2. There are no grass cuttings to collect
3. It lets you get on with other things or relax
4. It's fun to watch
Rating 10/10

The shocking story of a lady trying to dispose of some grass cuttings.

The shocking story of a lady trying to dispose of some grass cuttings.

The Daily Mail reports on the councils decision not to take green recycling bins unless the bin men are able to pull them with two fingers. This lady had to take her mass of grass cuttings to the tip herself because the bin men would not take them.

Please note: Robomow will mulch your grass and comb the clippings back into the lawn, thus acting as a mulch fertiliser. There are NO CLIPPLINGS to dispose of with Robomow. Robomow will cut your lawn automatically, even while you are on holiday! And no clippings! Click here to see the article..
Robomow In the Mirror

Robomow In the Mirror

From the Mirror, 4th July 2008. Click here to see the larger image
Developed by a former Israeli Air Force fighter pilot, the Robomow - available from www.mower-magic.co.uk - is probably the ultimate gadget for the time-poor (or just plain lazy*) urban gardener.

As the name suggests it's an automatic lawnmower. While the initial setup took some time - you need to peg down a sensor wire around the lawn which eventually sinks into the ground - once up and running, this super cool cross between R2-D2 and Percy Thrower worked like a charm, eerily zigzagging its way across the lawn while avoiding the flowerbeds.

Not only does it do a great job of cutting the grass while you kick back and crack open a beer, it also chews up the cuttings and nourishes the lawn with them, meaning no more artificial fertilising or composting the clippings.

Pets are naturally terrified of it, but the RM200 does feature an effective sensor to protect animals and small children, along with a rain detector and a clever anti-theft alarm.

It's expensive and cuts the lawn relatively slowly, but as a means of making the neighbours envious, the Robomow is nigh on priceless.

* We say you don't have to be lazy to use Robomow! Robomow is suited to busy people who are away a lot; people with a million other things to do; people who have difficulty with strenuous activity; disabled people; people who appreciate high-end technology - all sorts of different people (lazy or NOT) !
