What to consider when buying a robotic mower

What if you could have a perfectly cut lawn, come rain or shine? Here are a few things to keep in mind before you buy the best robotic mower for your garden.

What’s the size of your lawn?

When looking for a mower you should pick one that can handle the size of your lawn. But remember that cutting capability is generally based on a flat and open lawn, so if your lawn is undulating or there are bushes, it’s better to choose a mower with a greater capacity. This is also important if you don’t want it to cut during the night.

Does your garden have steep banks?

If you have a lawn with steep banks you should pick a mower fit for the job, with good traction and power. Robotic mowers work even when it rains, so pick one with wheels that have a good grip. Our most powerful version is the Automower™ 330X, which handles slopes with up to 45% inclination.

Is your garden complex?

If your garden has intricate passages and different sections you have to ensure that your mower is capable of handling a complex garden. A tip is to select a mower with guide wires; they are an easy way to make sure that the cutter can handle the narrowest passages.

Security system

Make sure that your robotic mower is equipped with a pin code lock, alarm and preferably also a GPS-tracker. If you report your stolen product to the dealer they should blacklist your mower, making future servicing impossible.

Is the display easy to understand?

Most people don’t think about it when selecting a robotic mower, but it’s a good idea to check how the system actually works. Check the manual and have a look at the display to see if it is clear, intuitive and easy to navigate. Remember that even if most settings are done when installing your mower, timer settings and cutting length often change over a season.

Safety first!

Pets and children should not be allowed to be in the same area as the mower, but of course this can happen. You should therefore consider a mower with a cutting disc with retractable blades. Since the mower cuts each day it only cuts a little bit and if a paw or foot gets under the mower, it will not result in a serious injury.

Is there a workshop close by?

When selecting a robotic mower you should also consider how easily available a workshop is. A good dealer or workshop will help you with repairs, servicing, software updates and winter storage. Check if we have dealers close to you.

Things to consider before you buy:


  • Tracks and size of the wheels affects how easily it can get up steep banks
  • Is it easy to use and service? It’s annoying if you have to call for service just because the system is hard to understand
  • Get a bigger machine if you have a lot of banks and a complex garden
