Update March 2020 – please note that WORX has introduced a new range of Landroid robotic mowers, there are 6 models to choose from that cover lawns from 300m² to 2,000m². As you can see from this review below the Landroid robotic mowers have always led the way in advanced technology and features, and this new range of robotic mowers continues to ensure they are at the cutting edge of robotic mower technology. To see my full reviews of these new robotic mowers, and why they are amongst the best and most configurable mowers available in the UK today, click on the link below.
The WORX WR110MI Landroid mower is quite easily one of the the most value for money models on the market and can be seen as the smaller brother of the WG790E.
By the end of this review you’ll know exactly which one to choose for your garden.
WR110MI Main features:
- Rating: 9/10
- Ideal for gardens up to 700m²
- Mobile phone connection
- Environmentally friendly
- Anti Theft System
- Mows closer to the edge
To introduce you to the WR110MI and its features, watch the video below:
All robomowers are equipped with a navigation system which enables them to find their way around your garden, but the WORX WR110MI system uses artificial intelligence to do this more efficiently (AIA technology).
For example, in gardens with narrow passageways there will be 2 perimeter wires in close proximity to each other, many robomowers are unable to differentiate this from a standard perimeter and will not pass through to the other side.
The WR110MI, with its artificial intelligence, recognises this situation and continues through to carry on cutting without any issues (click here to see this in action).
Also, with its AI navigation system the WR110MI will happily navigate avoiding obstacles and will design a route that encompasses all of your lawn.
This capability may mean that you don’t have to consider modifications to your gardens which may be necessary when using other robomowers.
A definite plus for the WORX WR110MI.

The power system is completely electric so produces zero emissions and works extremely quietly. This means you can set it out to work at any time you want without it annoying you, your family or your neighbours.
An added bonus is you are also keeping the environment happy and healthy.
The WORX WR110MI is powered by 20V max Lithium-ion battery and will automatically head back to its charging station to recharge, it has a side charge system that provides tidy and clear charging place.
Once the WR110MI has reached the docking station it takes about 2 hours to recharge completely, this is nearly twice as long as some similar mowers such as the Gardena.
But this does not have to be an issue, just take it into consideration when you set its mowing schedule/programme so that you don’t have the mower still working while you want to enjoy your garden.
It is very easy to replace the battery as the design of the the battery location and connector make for easy maintenance.
As with other Landroid mowers in this range, to cut the grass the WR110MI uses three, very small blades attached to one rotating disk allowing a cutting height of between 20mm-60mm. The blades are set off-centre to assist in cutting closer to the boundary or wall.
A great feature of this mower is the forward and reverse rotation of the blades that reduces the blade replacement time by half, very helpful.
These are a good distance away from its sides, 25mm (with protection mantle) which means if you have to lift it to check the blades you are not a risk of cutting yourself.
But to be extra precautionary, like all robomowers, this bot comes with a quick stop blade function (which we will discuss further down in the review).
So rest assured there will be no emergency trips to A&E.
The WR110MI has a very simple and easy to understand control panel which anyone can understand how to program.
It has a battery gauge telling you how much charge is left, you can use it to make any changes you want to the mowers settings and, most impressively, it tells you when there is a problem.
It even explains to you how to fix it, saving you the time and energy of doing it yourself.
It’s also covered with waterproof casing to reduce any technical malfunctions while mowing in the rain, and of course it has a built in rain sensor to tell it when to return back to the charge station.
The WR110MI also allows you to adjust the length at which it cuts your grass using a dial (20mm to 60mm).
But just make sure you do not put this setting all the way down from the word go. This only results in an uneven lawn as the smallest blades of grass are not given time to grow.
Which can lead to unhealthy brown patches on the grass, I’m sure you don’t want that!
Instead gradually bring down the cutting height. This gives smaller bits of grass time to grow while the longer bits are being cut.
Giving you a much more even lawn.
Preventing brown patches is not the only reason for bringing the cutting height down gradually – you also give the mower the opportunity to mulch your lawn.
Because the WR110MI cuts the grass into tiny pieces, the clippings can drop all the way down to the soil. As they decompose, they pass on nutrients to the soil to promote much healthier grass growth.
Making your lawn much greener, thicker and healthier than ever before.
The WORX WR110MI can sense whenever the grass gets wet and therefore stops mowing. No matter if it’s already away mowing or just sitting in the docking station, the mower will not begin mowing until the grass is dry again.
As you probably know, wet grass can be bad for the mower as it will clog up its underside. Meaning it will use more power to operate, which only leads to shorter mowing times and therefore poorer results.
Making this feature absolutely necessary.
As you probably already know, you can connect your phone to the WR110MI Landroid. Making the experience as easy as possible.
Once it has calculated the most suitable route for you garden you really can just put your feet up and watch it go.
With the app you can change the mowing schedule, cutting height and security settings – it’ll also send you software updates as well.
The only thing is I would wait until the WR110MI has mowed and is comfortable with your lawn before playing with the settings.
I just think a hands on approach is better for the first few weeks – but this is up to you.
WORX have programmed a ‘quick stop blade’ function into the WR110MI. This means whenever the bot is either titled or lifted, the blades stop immediately.
Making your mower as safe as can be in your garden – and is probably much safer than a conventional mower by the way!
Unlike other older WORX mowers the blade has been set off-centred and designed to provide a clean cut with narrowest distance to the boundary or wall. This helps minimise the amount and frequency of manual trimming along the boundary. As a result, this Landroid has been fitted with a protective cover to prevent objects touching the turning blades.
PIN & Alarm System
No, the Landroid S does not have PIN protection.
The Landroid does have an anti-theft system, you can lock your Landroid with the app under “Settings/Advanced”. In the locked state, the Landroid can be operated only with its home wi-fi connection. If it is operated for three days without its home network, all functions of the Landroid are automatically blocked. It remains out of service till it is returned within range of its home network.
In The Box
- If you have a slopped and unusually shaped garden with loads of decorations like bushes, flowerbeds etc. then this mower may get into a bit trouble with you. But if you follow the installation process properly then you shouldn’t have too many problems.
- This mower does take a long time to charge, some competitors can charge much quicker and still produce the same working time. But seeing as the mower doesn’t need any assistance from you while mowing, you shouldn’t need to worry about it.
I believe that the WORX WR110MI Landroid is a good product.
There are only a few others that can compete with its value for money, it does a very good job of keeping your lawn in great condition and has a series of useful functions which can be controlled from the palm of your hand.
So really it should be everything you are asking for.
Even with the flaws stated above I not only think this is a brilliant mower and recommend that you DO purchase it, but I also think it’s the best for your money in the market.
It looks great, it’s reliable, it has loads of features, it has great navigation, it’s safe to use, cuts closer to the edge, you can control it from anywhere and it’ll make short work of your lawn.
For me there’s no looking past the WORX WR110MI Landroid. (please see below for latest update and new models)
UPDATE MARCH 2020 –
If you have a medium garden up to 700 metres squared and are looking to purchase a robotic lawn mower, then this model could be an option for you, however I would strongly recommend that you consider the new WORX range of robotic mowers. These are my top picks due to their latest technology, features, outstanding value for money and performance. In addition to this you have the ability to expand and enhance the robotic mowers with the additional add-on features.
Should You Buy This Model?
Well there are a few factors to consider first, whether or not you purchase this model really depends on your garden and situation.
To give you some guidance on which type of customer would suit this model best, below I’ve got a list of the categories they would fall under:
- Their garden is flat with a lot of open space
- Their garden is under 700m² is size (just over 3 tennis courts)
- They don’t have the time to maintain the lawn on their own
- They’re looking for a closer cut to the edge
- They’re looking for a low to mid end model
- They don’t mind clearing their garden of twigs, branches, etc. before every mow
Of course this is open to interpretation so if you don’t fall under every single one then don’t worry I’m sure you’ll still love this product. But if you actually fall under them all then congratulations you just found your perfect mower!
