Everyone loves a perfectly manicured lawn, but putting in the work to maintain freshly cut grass is certainly easier said than done. That is, of course, unless you happen to have the McCulloch ROB 1000 Programmable Robotic Mower on-hand.
This robotic lawn mower will cut the grass for you and therefore make your life so much easier. The best part is that you can program it to cut the grass whenever you’d like. Set it to mow the lawn (quietly!) at night and wake the that freshly cut grass smell.
You can adjust the time the grass is cut and the duration of mowing, so that your whole yard will be freshly trimmed. Once it’s finished mowing the lawn, this smart machine returns to its charging station. And, if for some reason it ran out of battery before finishing your entire yard, it would charge itself and then get back to work immediately after. Impressive!
The device also requires a PIN code to release it from the charging station, making it difficult to steal, giving you peace of mind when you’re not at home. No regular lawn mower can do that!
It can cut up to a quarter-acre of grass and handle a 25 percent incline. Installation is supposedly very easy, too—if you’ve got enough wire to go around.
You see, the mower calls for special boundary wire to help keep it in place. Place the wire along the perimeter of the areas you want cut, and you’re all ready to start using the mower.
The mower comes with 650 feet of boundary wire, so if you’ll need more than that, you’ll have to order it from the manufacturer because, according to Tech.Co, this isn’t something you can find at the local hardware store.
Now that you’ve heard some of the specs—it’s time to get into the reviews. This product has received mostly five-star reviews on Amazon. People have raved about everything from the weatherproof aspects to how well it works even with pets in the yard.
“We have several small dogs, so appreciate the safety feature that the mower blades stop if the machine is tilted or lifted,” one customer wrote.
That’s a very good detail to note!
It really seems as though McCulloch has thought of everything with this product. Now all that’s left to do is decide if you want to shell out almost $1,200 for a robot to mow your lawn. You can also find similar products on Amazon, most of which are also around $1,000 and up. So, clearly, this convenience is going to cost you!
