Busy? Want more free time? Could a robotic mower be the answer?

The summer is a time to be outside enjoying the weather, relaxing and having fun with family and friends. And while we cannot always guarantee the weather, we can guarantee the need to get outside and cut the lawn. Some people do not mind mowing the lawn, finding pleasure in the task. However, for many people mowing the lawn is a chore, one that eats into precious weekend leisure time.

So, what’s the solution? Is there a way for those who can’t or don’t want to mow their lawns, avoid the task altogether? Well, yes, with a robotic mower! Not so much the stuff of science fiction, these cleverly designed pieces of equipment operate remotely and make light work of cutting and maintaining a lovely lawn. Compact, quiet and discreet, lawn mower manufacturers expect the robotic mower market to be their largest growing sector, as more and more people look for ways to spend less time doing chores and more time enjoying life.

Clearly robotic mowers are aimed at homeowners looking to rid themselves of one more chore. Fit for use in any size lawn, robotic mowers are particularly useful for people with large lawns that can quickly look unkempt and require a lot of time and attention to keep in shape.

However, robotic mowers are not just for those who do not like mowing, they are useful for homes with large gardens that are hard to manage with just a lawn mower. Many robotic mowers are able to cope with complicated garden layouts and areas with sloped inclines. They are also great for people with mobility issues who want to enjoy a beautiful garden without having to rely on others or compromise real grass for artificial turf. Finally, robotic mowers are perfect for places of business or private grounds. Not only will the mower keep the grounds in tiptop condition but also they free ground staff and contractors to focus on other tasks.

The robotic mowers available from Red Band are designed and built by leading manufacturer Husqvarna. Fully self-operating, they recognise when they are low on charge and return to their charging dock to resume cutting once at full power. Fully programmable, they can be set to cut every day if required.

As well as self-operating, robotic mowers offer other benefits too, for example, the Husqvarna range is low noise meaning they offer little disruption. What’s more, the cutting technique they use is based on the same principles that sheep use when grazing. This seemingly random cutting ensures the grass is evenly cut while promoting healthy growth.

Four Husqvarna robotic mowers are available, from the entry level 305 that is perfect for lawns of around 500m2 up to the 265ACX, which is capable of maintaining areas of up to 6000m2. For details on the full range, call the Red Band team on 0116 260 2601.
