Robot Does Yardwork While You Play

Lawnbott robot grass mowerWish you can free yourself from the shackles of mowing the lawn each week? You’ve heard of Roomba, the robotic vacuum cleaner. Now meet Lawnbott, the automatic grass cutting robot.

Think about it. Let’s say you spend a couple of hours each week cutting the lawn. Fast forward one year and you are down 104 hours of your life spent cutting the grass. There are better things to do!

Lawnbott not only saves you time, but emits zero pollution and zero emissions. I haven’t even mentioned the money you’ll save on gas and oil that you currently spend on your “old fashioned” lawnmower. If you use a 5.5 HP gas powered grass mower, over a year you are spending about $112. on gas alone, especially with the high prices of gas these days! $3.00 per gallon is not cheap.

Let’s add a few more things to the laundry list of lawn mowing. How about the yard waste pickup service and the expense of that old fashioned lawn mower? Well, you get the picture! Not only does it cost you money, but your own precious time.

Lawnbott can pay for itself within a couple of years, give or take a few weeks. And this robot can easily maintain a three quarter acre lawn and navigate slopes up to 27 degrees. Can you do that consistently over the long haul?

How Does Lawnbott Work?

This robot lawn mower works automatically (duh, it’s a robot), through its intelligent computer and a perimeter cable. Lawnbott can move freely within an enclosed area, detecting the faint signal transmitted by the perimeter cable located on the ground, defining the areas to be mowed; it can also work without a perimeter cable as working area is enclosed by a fence or small border at least 4 inches tall.

When Lawn Bott begins its work cycle, it leaves its docking station and starts mowing your yard in a random direction. It will mow in a straight line until it bumps into an obstacle, such as a tree or flower pot, or until it runs over its perimeter cable, then it stops, backs up, turns and takes off again. LawnBott has a smart spiral function where if the computer senses thicker or taller grass, it will begin to spiral outward from that area to even out the grass height. This added feature helps to eliminate any missed areas.

When the batteries start running low, or at the end of its cutting cycle, the mower will search out the perimeter cable and follow it back to its docking station to recharge. After charging, it heads back out on its own!

That’s not all. An on-board alarm system sound when an unauthorized user picks up the Lawnbott – that will teach your nosey neighbors!

The most valuable thing Lawnbott gives you is one less thing to worry about.
