Hi
I am wondering if anyone has invested in one of the robotic lawnmowers that are on the market?
I see the prices range from 200 euro for the cheapest then can go up to 3000 for the top of the range ones.

If you have tried one of these would you let us know how they fair please? Can they cope with large areas? Does the charge live up to the hype? Do they have solar panels? Do they get over the humps and bumps?

Any feedback would be welcome

I could tell you a long story about these but wont, Yes they do all it says on the box but you need a good one, What happens if someone takes it, No good without the cable I hear you say . that wont worry a would be thief. Also the good ones go into a small box if it rains but what if it rains for two days and the grass gets too long and the slope is slippy and it cant get traction.. I wouldnt bother waste of money long term
