Keep your lawn look­ing ef­fort­lessly tidy with one of these ma­chines.

De­sign

The black and orange colour scheme means ROB looks the part, and it trav­els with its wider end first too, giv­ing the im­pres­sion it means busi­ness. The dis­play is bright and clear, but the charg­ing dock isn’t as nice as the iMow’s.

Fea­tures

ROB has a key­pad and friend­lier but­tons than the iMow, plus Start and Home mark­ings. Un­der­neath, the blades are a wheel of whirling ra­zors with a cut­ting width of 17cm. Re­place­ments are in­cluded, and it can cut in the rain.

Per­for­mance

Put into Auto mode, ROB mowed for longer than the iMow be­fore dock­ing. Its blade de­sign coped well with longer grass as well as nib­bling the tops off shorter stems. It cuts a lawn up to 1,000m2, mulching clip­pings back to im­prove the grass.

Us­abil­ity

Setup is ham­pered by the need to run an ex­tra guide wire along with the bound­ary mark­ers, in­clud­ing to its charg­ing dock. The con­trols are more re­spon­sive than the iMow’s, with the cut­ting length con­trol par­tic­u­larly easy to use.

2nd

Rates Pro­gram­ming is a breeze; con­trols are sim­ple to use; a good-look­ing ma­chine. Slates You’ll need to run an ex­tra guide wire; cover seems loose com­pared to the iMow.
