I have a small yard but alot of moving around with the in and outs of fence posts and a shed and walkways. I had to buy just 50 more feet of wire and 50 pegs to finish. I have a 12.5 inch "pathway" between the front and back yards along a shady side of the house (no grass) that the mower has no problem navigating through and under the fence (cut out). If I do not want to mow the back or need to work on it, you can easily place a "gate" (block of wood) to cutoff access to the side/back yards. Walking around the perimeter/cutting with it has helped me see a few low spots that I missed filling in. Got compliments from the neighbors on the first day of testing it out. Everyone likes to see it cut and bump into trees or mailbox posts and redirect itself. Its does not scratch or damage anything; I even watched it hit my car a few times
I am very happy with our WR150 mower. It effectively cuts our 1/3 acre of lawn and does it well. With a 9" cut it takes a while but running it everyday for 6 hours you essentially have a lawn that is always the same height, at the perfect height. Im a big fan and this has saved me a lot of time. It does not chew up leaves or twigs like a gas mower. I mow the lawn once a month with our gas mower with bagger to clean up leaves etc. Buy one today you will appreciate the little guy. Its like having a worker you never have to pay plus you run the schedule with the smartphone app! 5 stars-- Tom from Idaho (btw Idaho is FULL).
I'm writing this review on a beautiful Saturday morning. Really, that's all I need to say to give my new Landlord a five star rating. I love having this little guy around the house, keeping my lawn looking great and freeing up my weekend mornings. He's almost become like one of the family. I'll share a few of the things, pros and cons, I've discovered about Landroid since his arrival --1. Landroid works anytime I want him to. Day or night. I can program Landroid to run at night because he RUNS SUPER QUIET. And by pre-programming Landroid to work a few nights a week, my lawn never looks overgrown. It's got that "just cut" look everyday.2. I thought it might be hard to set up and get running. But really, it's not. There's a Landroid App. From my phone I can program Landroid - and set and control his schedule for the week. The app monitors Landroid when he's out in the yard mowing, so if something goes wrong (yes, it has gotten stuck on our trampoline a couple of times...but more on that in a different bullet point) the app notifies me on my phone with the problem and Landroid's location.The app also lets me map the boundaries and size of my yard by simply walking around the edges using my phone camera to input data. It also lets me auto-start Landroid at any time - whenever I want to give the yard a quick, fresh trim, which was really helpful on the day we were hosting my kid's high school homecoming pictures.3. Yes, there is one thing that was a bit time-consuming. I quickly learned it's important to think in advance about where to lay the boundary wire. Once I had a plan, it was easy to do. The kit Landroid comes with is very user-friendly. I just walked the wire around the boundary, tapped the plastic stakes into the yard with a hammer every few feet, and then clicked the wires into the Landroid home base - it was pretty easy, like hooking up home speaker wires. Landroid comes with plenty of power chord line. Just be sure to plan in advance the best place to put the base, relative to where your home outlets are located.++The quick-start instruction page is easy to follow - if you're familiar with the format. Like so many other high tech products, Worx wants to make it fast and simple, instead of needing you to read the main instruction manual. However, I recommend reading the main manual first, and then using the quick start page as a guide. I found the extra detail in the larger manual helpful. WHAT I WISH : I WISH WORX HAD A VIDEO LINK TO VISUALLY WALK YOU THROUGH THE SET UP... a video online, showing how simple the set up is...this would have been very helpful, and probably saved me a solid half hour of sorting through the paper instructions.++Be sure to LOOK AT THE BOX FLAPS when open the box - I didn't realize to do this until after I had already set-up the boundaries. Worx included two measuring tools perforated on the box flap. You just peel them off and then you've got everything you need to measure the set up of your boundary wire around obstacles, flower beds and paving stones. (I used a tape measure, which was fine...but if I had known these measuring tools were on the box, that also would have saved me time)4. So what are the cons? There are a few, and I'll note them here for you ----A couple of features on the app aren't fully explained. Like zone one, zone two, zone three. I need to call Worx customer service and figure out how those add value to the programming. WORX SHOULD OFFER THE POWER BASES SOLD SEPARATELY. Landroid is light and easy to lift and move around the yard. We have a separate side yard. So ideally I would like to to install a second charging base and have the flexibility to work two independent areas of our property using the same Landroid.--My Landroid, as I mentioned earlier, has gotten stuck a couple of times on our trampoline. I know there are upgrade features available - including a sensor bumper you can attach and a lining material that creates "safe areas" so Landroid will automatically learn how to work around certain obstacles. I haven't upgraded to these items yet, but I'm probably will next season to avoid the trampoline. Landroid works under and around the trampoline, no problem. It's fun to watch him navigate the legs. But tramp legs are oddly shaped, and so instead of bumping and turning away, the cowling sometimes gets caught over top of the metal bar. When this happens, Landroid has an emergency auto shutoff and a signal is sent to my phone. It's a solvable situation. I just need to look into getting the upgrades before the start of the next mowing season.--I didn't get Landroid until this Fall (I wish I would've gotten him back in the Spring) The one thing, now that leaves are falling -- Landroid, doesn't mulch very well. I didn't buy Landroid for mulching, but that would have been a nice bonus feature if he did. Maybe Worx will offer a mulching attachment by next year??--We have a border collie and she loves barking at and herding Landroid when he's out working the yard. It was cute at first, but then her obsession with Landroid wore thin. Landroid didn't seem to mind her; he just went about his business while she chased him around the yard. But that's why Landroid now only works the night shift around our house.Overall, Landroid easily earns my FIVE STAR RATING - He cuts beautifully. He runs quiet. There's no gas whatsoever (so that's a huge plus in my mind)...and like I said, Landroid saves me time every Saturday morning.I have neighbors with mowing services and I know they pay quite a bit over the course of a season. A couple of friends saw Landroid working around my yard when I first set him up, and they asked me about Landroid...how does he work, where did I get him, what's so great about having him on call 24/7? That's really why I decided to take the time to write this review - because I wish we had more of Landroids in our neighborhood.I think of all the loud lawn mowers running around here, especially early on Saturday mornings....Maybe if I can convince my neighbors of the benefits of letting Landroid take over their lawn mowing duties, by next summer our Landroid won't be working the night shift alone. He'll have friends working along side of him, quietly keeping all of the yards on our street looking their best.
I finally bit the bullet and bought a robotic mower after seeing it in action at a trade show. During the show, I was impressed with he mower’s ability to climb, turn, and avoid obstacles with he avoidance control system. I purchased the Worx system because the cost was significantly cheaper than the others that I was considering.I’ve had the unit running now (yes, in the winter!) for about 4 weeks. AWESOME. I really put it to the test by not cutting the grass for several weeks before – I probably had about 4 inches of grass that needed to be cut. Note, that’s not the way that you’re supposed to do it. It’s not made for this type of cutting, but it worked great over the course of about a week and a half, leaving noticeable 4-6 inch swaths of cuts grass in its wake. Watching the grass cut short day after day was a very satisfying feeling.Here are a few things that you need to know about this mower:1) The setup says that 10 minutes of preparation will save you an hour of time. Clearing the area that you’re cutting, especially the border is especially important. This is because the border because when the mower returns home, it needs to follow the border. If there are obstacles in the line of the border, your mower will get stuck and stop mowing.2) It took me weeks before I actually got my mower to return home on its own. The mower was constantly stuck on something that I’d left in the path of the mower (see pictures). There were times it was stuck on a branch from a bush or got hung on a wood pile that I have stored in the back yard. I needed to get all of those things away from the border before it actually worked.3) No matter what problems I’ve had with the mower, I’ve spent so much less time working in my lawn. Sometimes it gets hung up on minor things, but just picking it up and taking it back to the station takes seconds.4) The mower has tiny 2 inch blades…it will not mulch or cut leaves. It has basically no suction…which is fine because it’s a mower, not a mulcher. I thought it would chop up the leaves into little pieces, but it didn’t even come close. Just don’t expect leaves to be cut up like a walk behind mower.5) When setting up your border, try to keep away from small “fingers” of lawn, the mower gets a little confused in these points. Eventually, it will get out, but it can go back and forth trying to do so.Pros:• Within about a week this mower will cut my entire 1/5 acre yard.• Boundary wire is easy to install, necessary clips are easy to use. Setup took about 2 hours for a 1/5 acre lawn• Easy to program with the app• Rain sensor to stop cutting in the rain• GPS included on the one I got, so I can see where it is by looking at my app an seeing an image of my lot with the location of the mower – especially helpful if its hung up.• Cuts the grass with little effort, despite having to pick it up and move it to base station on occasion.• The mower sounds like a small handheld fan – I can run this at any time…even night time.Cons:• App loses connection frequently• I believe this is a common problem with robotic mowers, but the mower is easily hung up on obstacles and deliberate setup is critical. Takes a couple of weeks to find all of your obstacles and remove them. (but still less time than cutting the grass once!)• Maybe I missed it, but the part about setting up the docking station was a bit confusing to get the wires just right. There are channels in the docking station that you need to feed the wires into. Took me a bit to figure that out, but once I did, it docks perfectly.• Could use more stakes in the box. I’d suggest buying a few extra stakes just to be safe.I would absolutely buy this mower again and I look forward to using it all spring! It will save me so many hours of time.
Great little device that saves me a lot of time throughout the week. Even when I have to go free him up when he gets stuck occasionally, it isn't a big deal and is worth the minor hassle (our yard is very uneven with a good amount of soft earth.
I have to say I was sceptic with buying the Worx Landroid over the other competitors due to it being so cheap (relative). Set up took me about 4 hours to lay 1000 linear feet (had to buy more from Lowes) but very straight forward and a breeze. The mower currently has been 60 miles and ran for 80 hours with very minimal hickups. My yard looks like carpet and no areas require touch up due to the fact that this mower gets right up to the edge. My yard is relatively flat (.45 acres of grass) and open with no obsticles. I highly recommend this guy and saving your money over the other guys!
Read about the rave reviews and decided to jump the boat with a decent discount. Installation does take some careful reading and planning, i.e., how to lay the boundary wires to maximizing cutting while reducing slipping chances if out-of-boundary condition is slippery. Once it has one successful run of cut, it will continue the pattern as you program with no future hassle. A great relief if you hate cutting grass while enjoying the green sight.Also be careful if you have extra length of wire close to charging station(just in case I need to extend boundary wire a bit, I don't have to cut a new wire), improperly looping will confuse the robot and make it unable to home properly. So you either have to have exact length cut to avoid loops or figure out how to avoid homing disuption.
What a great invention! There is nothing better than coming home from a long day of work to see that the mowing is done. Initial set up does take a bit of time and I have tweaked it a few times since but once it is programed, you don't have to think about it. Changing blades is a quick and easy process and it can mow close enough to the edges that I have very little trimming to do. I would never go back to a traditional mower.
I love this mower. I have a 1/4 acre lot on a lake and landroid handles it beautifully. I set the boundary wire about a foot from the edge of the water around the lake portion and crossed over the driveway by cutting two shallow trenches about 4 feet apart into the concrete using a mansonry blade on my circular saw and carried it over to surround a tree that I wanted to keep it away from. It took about 4 hours to complete the setup by myself. I did have to buy additional wire to complete the project.I've spent the last month tweaking the layout of the boundary wire, filling in holes and removing roots that were sticking up enough to affect it. There was only one place near the water that was too muddy for it to push through but moving the wire corrected it.I added the ACS because when family visits we have overflow parking in the yard, lawn games and furniture that I wanted to keep it from bumping into. I'm a little disappointed in the effectiveness of the ACS. It still bangs into our wrought iron furniture and a yard windmill sometimes pushing them over. I've also had it get jammed under vehicles such that if we had not checked before moving them, they would have run it over.I would like a feature to remotely control it when it gets trapped.The find my Landroid feature is great. It accurately locates the Landroid making it easier to locate when there is an issue.It is so quiet it will sneak up on you before you realize it is nearby.I have mostly St. Augustine grass which has thick blades and runners which grow so quickly, I was having to mow every 5 to 7 days. Even at 5 days the grass clipping I left created a mess when they would collect on our feet and be carried inside.This is a vacation home and we don't have dedicated wifi. We have unlimited data on our cellular plan so we tether our TVs and laptops to watch TV and surf the web while here. I was able to connect the Landroid by tethering it and it works without issue.I was able to use a Worx coupon code to receive 15 percent off making this much less expensive than the Automower that I was looking at.So after 2 months of use, I am sold on Landroid. It is a solid product at a reasonable cost and would highly recommend it. In fact I plan to purchase another one for our permanent home.
I have to admit i was skeptical when i first purchased this since it does require a lot of effort to run the wire, specially if you have a complicated or big yard and also it is not cheap.I would recommend getting an electric trenching tool(see pictures), it made it so much easier and i didn't have to use the included pegs which my dog would have taken as a scavenging hunt finding and removing them all one by one. Just keep in mind the end result depends 99% on the wire installation so plan plan plan.After the wire is done your pain is over, this thing is AMAZING!! totally untended grass management that always looks like a carpet. This being version 2 is so much better that the first one, briefly: app (notifications, updates, live controlling etc), modules to fit your specific case (i only needed the gps which came with it), cutting disc is offset to the side so it can get closer to the edge, battery is not specific and easily found in any local store since is the same as the rest of the company tools lineup and easily replaceable. I personally liked the grass cut to be very high so i set it to the highest setting and very please with it (see pictures)Find a quick video by searching landroid robot mower and If you have any questions feel free to ask i am not sponsored by anyone and i will give you an honest answer.
After purchasing an old landroid, having issues, returning it and leaving a poor review, this one works great. The main reason I bought this one is I had a few calls with their support staff who seem to have went from abysmal to amazing. Don't hesitate to call the landroid line if you have questions (8007276260).It occasionally gets stuck or throws an error. That happens maybe once or twice a week, but I get a push notification on my phone so it's not a big deal to go find it, since I never have to look to see if it's stuck. Many of the reasons it gets stuck can be fixed due to wire placement or whatever the issue is. I'll trade 20-30 minutes of mowing for ~2 minutes of helping the mower. Maintenance, storage, etc. are better with this. I am looking forward to selling my large riding mower that takes up way too much space in my garage.I'm pretty picky about my lawn quality, and I have not mowed my backyard in several months, and it looks great. Although it doesn't have the nice lines of a perfectly mowed lawn, it's always the right length, and it also eliminates any chance of scalping, which was a problem in a few areas. The random lines go away after a while, so once it's been mowing for a few days you just see a 3" lawn without lines. Overall, I don't think there's any sacrifice visually in cut quality.Overall, I'd definitely recommend it for someone who is tech or DIY focused, but it's probably not for everyone yet. The return policy makes it easy to try, but burying the boundary wire takes several hours, so there's a time investment there. I'll probably upgrade it next time a significantly better landroid (or competitor) comes out.The main reason I'm leaving this review is to tell people how I worked around my trampoline. My landroid would get stuck on the "base". I use worm drive clamps and some shielded ground wire to create a barrier that's several inches in the air. This has fixed the trampoline as an issue for me.
This is my second Landroid mower. The first one was was still going strong after 3 years...but I've always got to have the latest and greatest of everything. Installed it with no problems and was able to re-use the existing boundary wire I used for the last Landroid. It has a lot of features that make it an excellent upgrade...definitely an improvement over Version 1. I especially like that the GPS tracker came free with it...that has always been my biggest concern with robot mowers...that someone would steal it. Now with the GPS tracker, I have a peace of mind to know I can track it down. If it works as good as the last one...I'll have years of trouble free service.I can't recommend a robot mower enough...these things are great (I also have a McCulloch in the front yard).
