Seeing as robotic lawn mowers are just starting to break out to the masses and are gradually getting more popular, I imagine there are still quite a few people that are still on the fence about whether or not they’re a worthwhile investment.
Well I want to give you all the little push yous need by showing you this video below.
Within this programme the youtuber (Jonathan Oxer) tries out a Husqvarna Automower in his own lawn and records the results, his feeling about the mower and just about anything else he thinks his viewers should see over a set period of time (I think between 4 – 6 weeks).
He has had no prior connections with Husqvarna or any robotic mowers and does not work for them, all he did was send out a video explaining he’d like to try one, applied for the program and got a mower shipped out to him to get started.
He actually has a series of videos showing you his experience, all of which you can see on his channel, but there’s one in particular I want you to see. In the video below he has compared the mowing results of his robotic mower to that of a manual mower.
For the sake of this test Jonathan deliberately left an area of lawn untouched and sectioned off so the robotic mower couldn’t get access to it and therefore couldn’t mow.
By this point he has had the robot mower for about 3 weeks which is usually how long he would wait for the grass to grow before mowing it manually, so you get to see a good comparison between the results seen with both sets of models.
As you can see the grass mowed by the Automower looks much fuller and healthier than that mowed by the manual mower.
This is because of the everyday mowing style used by the robot mower.
As it cuts the grass clippings so small they can filter all the way to the bottom of the soil, where they’ll group together and act as a “carpet” like Jonathan said and then decompose to act as a mulch, making your soil and grass look healthier.
As you just seen these are fantastic machines, they do one hell of a job on your lawn and they’re so much easier to use, so why don’t you save yourself all the bother of manual mowing and pick one up for yourself?
