Popular Robot Mower Models

Of the many robot mower models mentioned by the homeowners we surveyed, a few received repeat mentions. In no particular order, here are the top three mowers mentioned most often in our survey:

Luba lawn mower: LUBA 2 AWD 1000Premium solution: Luba 2 awd 1000 for lawns up to 0.25 acres

Many homeowners championed their Luba lawnmowers, so we took a deeper look at a version that received high praise: the LUBA 2 AWD 1000: Perimeter Wire Free Robot Lawn Mower.

This robot grass cutter is a premium robotic solution for lawns up to 0.25 acres. Its all-wheel-drive system and adaptive suspension help to overcome challenging slopes (up to 38 degrees). Potholes? No problem.

The Luba lawn mower owners praised its 3D Vision and RTK Fusion-mapping system. Luba claims the perimeter can be set in as little as 18 minutes; the autonomous mower can create multiple routes and no-go zones that can be managed with the Mammotion app. 

It also offers mowing schedules and cutting heights to specify a particular schedule and height for one area of the lawn and a different schedule and cut for another section.

"Hey, Alexa, the lawn needs to be mowed."

Yeah, it can do voice commands as well.

Luba lawnmowers are powerful, but like most robot lawnmowers, they come at a high cost — prices start around $2,000 and extend beyond $4,000. At 60dB, an IPX6 waterproof level, and smart rain detection, homeowners can mow at a time that works best for them based on the weather and without interrupting their neighbors.

Husqvarna AUTOMOWER 115HSimple setup: Husqvarna 115H is easy to set up

One homeowner summarized well how respondents who own Husqvarna's 115H robot lawn mower feel about their machine:

"I didn't find set up difficult. I've got a small lawn and needed something simple that wasn't overly expensive. My lawn looks good. More time with family, less time on the lawn. Works for me."

Many survey respondents found the 115H a reliable and efficient robotic lawn mower. Starting at $699, many felt this model proved affordable. It can tackle a yard up to 0.4 acres and efficiently cut on slopes with up to a 30 percent grade. The tool mows quietly, with a noise level of only 50-60 decibels.

The lawn mower can be controlled remotely or through a smartphone. The guide wire system makes it easy to install and routes the mower in an efficient pattern to cut the lawn. The Husqvarna Automower 115H (4G) is a top-rated product combining innovative technology and practical features. Other respondents mentioned the 310 Husqvarna as a model that worked well for them.

Greenworks Optimow 50H robotic lawn mowerPerimeter wire: Greenworks optimow 50H uses a perimeter wire for guidance

The Greenworks Optimow 50H robotic lawn mower is designed for lawns up to half an acre. Like Husqvarna's 115H, it utilizes a perimeter wire to help guide it and is also excellent for sloped lawns with its ability to handle slopes up to 35 percent. The 50H robotic lawn mower can keep your lawn presentable with a brushless motor, which increases torque, extends the run time, and reduces sounds.

The mower has 4G connectivity and GPS tracking; it also comes with theft prevention. The mower has adjustable cutting heights from 2.4 to 4 inches. The Optiomow is IPX5 waterproof and handy to program according to your preferred time schedules.
