Today I’m going to talk about a touchy subject in the robotic lawn mower world – are robotic mowers worth all the money?
Now if you have spent some time reading through my previous posts, then you’ll already know that I do believe that they are totally worthwhile – especially the Husqvarna robotic mowers. I know that this statement isn’t enough to convince you to think the same.
So that is the reason I wanted to show you the video below.
Husqvarna Automower Challenge
As part of their challenge, Husqvarna have issued a number of their robotic mowers to a selected group of individuals for them to house, review and record their experience with the mower (I’m not sure exactly about the duration of this challenge, but I’d imagine about an entire season).
These participants had to qualify to take part, but other than making use of their equipment, they are not in anyway associated with Husqvarna, so they don’t work for them, affiliate for them or have any bias towards them.
All they’re doing is recording their experience for the world to see.
One of the participants name is Jared, or “Rob The Robo Mower” if you want to check out his YouTube channel, he works for the fire brigade in Melbourne and has a huge garden (just check out the video below).
As you can imagine with the shifts he needs to work and hot weather conditions, finding the time and effort to mow such a large area of lawn will be quite difficult for him.
That’s why he would’ve jumped at the chance to take part in the Husqvarna Automower Challenge, it would (and did) make his life so much easier.
But what about that all important question, would he buy one himself after seeing the results?
In the video below he does repeatedly say that they are really expensive machines and you can hear in the tone of his voice that it’s going to be a pretty big investment for him.
Although on the other hand, he also brings up all the good points why buy a robotic mower and you can tell just how happy he is with the results he has benefited from.
If you’re still on the fence on whether or not you should purchase a robotic mower then please watch the video below.
So even with the big financial up-front investment, Jared would still purchase his robotic mower.
It just goes to show that even with the price of these mowers being so high, they are completely justified with the results they produce, not to forget how much time and effort they save the user.
As Jared said “the only thing you cannot buy is time” and this machine sure does give him a shed load of it!
To learn more about the Husqvarna Automower Challenge and to have a look at other peoples experiences as well as Jared’s, just follow this link to be taken to the challenge’s home page.
There are loads of videos for you to watch, so hopefully they’ll provide more information, clearly explain the benefits, how robotic mowers work and possibly give you a little push in confidence needed to purchase one.
They really are fantastic machines and I’m positive you’ll not regret buying one!
If you found this post interesting then maybe you’d like to see some of my other content, like my best robotic mower reviews?
I’ve reviewed various models all designed for different purposes and sized lawns, so if you’re in the market there won’t be a better place to go than here!
After purchasing a robotic mower you never know you may even want to join the proud robotic owners who want to build a garage for their newly acquired friend, or simply just buy one.
