Thanks for your question. Robotic mowers should last for years with only the blades being replaced periodically.

The lifespan of a robot lawnmower can vary significantly based on several factors, including the quality of the product, frequency of use, maintenance, and the complexity of the environment in which it operates. Typically, with proper maintenance, a robot lawnmower can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years.

Here are some factors that can affect the lifespan of a robot lawnmower:

Build Quality: Higher-end models built with quality materials and components may last longer than budget models.

Usage: The more frequently the lawnmower is used, the more wear and tear it will experience. For example, a robot lawnmower used daily will have a shorter lifespan than one used once a week.

Maintenance: Regular cleaning, blade replacement, and battery care can extend the life of the robot lawnmower.

Battery Life: Most robot lawnmowers are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The lifespan of these batteries can range from 3 to 5 years, depending on usage and care, and they are typically replaceable.

Software Updates: Manufacturers may provide software updates that can improve performance and sometimes extend the life of the product by optimising its operation.

Terrain: The type of terrain the robot lawnmower is used on can also affect its lifespan. Operating on rough or sloped terrain can put more strain on the motors and wheels.

Storage: Proper storage during off-season periods, particularly in winter, can protect the robot lawnmower from extreme temperatures and moisture, which can prolong its life.

To maximise the lifespan of a robot lawnmower, it's important to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for use, maintenance, and storage. Regularly replacing consumable parts like blades and taking care of the battery will also help ensure the lawnmower operates effectively for as long as possible.

If the manufacture goes out of business, the mower will continue work up to the point where it goes mechanically wrong and spare parts are required. There will of course be no firmware or app updates, so no bug fixes and enhancements.

    wow that was way more of a thorough answer than I expected. Thank you so much!I’m considering the LUBA 2 because I have a spinal injury and for over a decade the work has been a task for my wife. She has finally agreed to consider a robot lawnmower now that the robot vacuum has proved itself to be useful . I’m trying to find ways to reduce her workload. We are in 🇨🇦 so the lawn season is about 6-7 months.The reason I’m considering the LUBA is because I don’t like random cutting patterns even though I know it would get the job done AND we are planning to move so I don’t really want anything with boundary wires. Originally I was considering one of the lower end Worx models because liked the interchangeable battery and I was thinking that robot lawnmowers are going to have a significant improvement in the next 3-5 years but in all honesty it just needs to cut the grass and make our lives easier.
