station de charge base Where to place the robot lawnmower base?

Firstly, we advise you to place your robot lawnmower base within 10 metres of a mains socket, in which case you will need an extension lead. Secondly, a shady location is preferable to guarantee the durability of your robot. Finally, leave some space around the base (about 50cm) on both sides so that the robot can come and go from the base.

What is the price of a robotic lawnmower?

The price can vary greatly between certain models of robot mowers. It depends on the brand, the quality of the robot and also the application. Prices can start from 400 – 450 euros and go up to more than 1000 – 1300 for devices that can mow a large area. You should therefore take a good look at the average prices according to the surface area of the lawn you want to mow, so as not to be taken in.

Second mowing machine, this time from Bosch. The German brand is so well known that we don’t need to introduce it anymore, but for this model they could have done better. First of all, in terms of dimensions the robot measures 44 x 36 x 22.2 centimetres (LxWxH). Secondly, this robot mower covers an area of up to 350 square metres.

Otherwise, its charging base is smart, it only sends to mow if time permits and the robot returns to it automatically. However, the charge lasts 1 hour for 40 minutes of lawn mowing. Be careful though, your lawn should be as passable as possible, holes make the mower fickle. Fortunately, Amazon’s after-sales service is very responsive in the event of a problem.

In addition, the robot mower has a low noise level, which is pleasant. The cutting height can be adjusted between 2 and 5 centimetres. This robot mower has a longer charging time than most. It has a lithium-ion battery. Otherwise, we really appreciate the application through which the robot is connected. Indeed, you can program the mowing times, the updates are frequent for a better use every day. The best part is that there is even a hedgehog preservation mode, which limits the robot’s activity at night. In short, this is one of the most optimal robotic lawnmowers available at a fair price. It is one of the best value for money.

No products found.

We finish our selection with this good model from the brand Yard Force. This robot mows a maximum area of 900m². The robot has the following dimensions: 57 x 39 x 26 centimetres (LxWxH). It is otherwise rain-resistant and can withstand inclines of up to 40%. The cutting height can be adjusted between 20 and 60 millimetres. The charging time is 90 minutes for an 80-minute mowing session before returning to the charging station. In addition, as soon as the battery is low, it returns to the docking station by itself. Otherwise its low noise level is very appreciated. However, what we think is a shame is that there is no mowing strategy. It is random, so you will have to wait several days before you have a perfect lawn. Finally, the price is very good compared to the competition for this mowing surface, which offsets the small defects it may have. Finally, we have come to the end of our comparison of robot mowers and hope you have found your model.
