    No, they cannot do that.

    It will not be disrupted by a bike or toy. It can mow even if it is raining. It does not make any noise or exhaust. Your HOA will love it.

    I know lots of people who do, and I am considering getting one myself.

    The furniture is not a problem. If you have other things on the floor, you remove them and then let the Roomba do its thing. Still preferable to having to vacuum clean manually.

    They are very, very common over here. It is just a matter of time until they will be in the United States. While rest of the global lawnmower market is flat, Husqvarna expects robots to grow at 15% per year over the next several years.

    There is an important difference: self check-outs typically suck. Robotic lawnmowers are great.

    let's try to keep to the discussion...and if, in fact, RobotAttack is here to try to push and agenda (or a product) then he can move along and refrain from posting here.

    thanks, all!

    $1600 for the smallest Husqvarna robotic mower. $3500 for the biggest.


    Even grass that was cut 2 days ago but unevenly still looks bad. Have you seen those blades? That is the definition of flimsy. A rock will stop that mower in its tracks. And that boundry wire ? It's in a area that you can't mow thats on the edge of your yard. That wire will last about a month. Face it ... those mowers aren't there yet. They will be eventually, but your better off waiting for a few more years.
