Handle difficult areas with a robotic lawn mower for steep slopes
Robot lawn mowers are the way of the future, especially as we become increasingly time-poor and value our free time more than ever. However, many robotic mowers won’t do the job if you have a sloped backyard.
With Roboworld, we’ve got products that can handle up to 55% or close to 30° slopes (read below for clarification on slope degrees and gradients). So, let your robotic slope mower do the work, and you can enjoy doing the things you love.
You may be confused to find percentage gauges when looking for a robotic lawn mower for steep slopes. It’s common to see angles and degrees, but mower manufacturers tend to add in grade percentages. Just so you’re fully clarified, the slope grade is simply the percentage you get when dividing the vertical rise by the horizontal run.
For instance, a sloped lawn that’s 4 feet tall (y) and 8 feet wide (x) is graded 50% (percentage of y/x). For the angle, you divide y by x, then multiply it by tan-1. Using the previous example, we get a 26.6° angle. You can use an inclination or slope calculator to test it out yourself.
When it comes to handling backyard slopes, many robot lawn mowers fall short. However, at Roboworld, we’ve got a vast range of mowers built for complex spaces. Here are just a few of the robotic lawn mowers we supply for slopes of over 50% or close to 27°.
If you’ve got a smaller yard, but there are a few tricky places to reach, the L60 Elite is perfect. It has a 2-hour continuous working time before needing a charge and easily handles lawns up to 200m2. Best of all, it’s lightweight and portable and doesn’t need a wire perimeter for operation. That means you can even help out your friends and family!
The L60 Elite handles slopes up to 50%, so it can even get to those hard-to-reach spots. It’s also a 4-wheel drive for tricky terrain.
The L85 Elite comes with self-cleaning cogwheels, brushless motors and powerful lithium-ion batteries. It’s rated to cut lawns of up to 2,200m2 and features an impressive 3-hour continuous work time. Thanks to its incredible 55% or close to 30° slope tolerance, it can reach challenging places that traditional lawn mowers and garden tractors can’t. Plus, you don’t have to lift a finger because the L85 Elite works entirely autonomously.
The L60 Elite and Elite S+ models are incredibly cost-effective, and the fact that you don’t need a wire perimeter means it’s ready to mow. There’s no installation required, so you can even take it to a friend’s place and show it off to them. The L85 Elite, however, does need a wire perimeter but has a slightly more complex operational capability, and of course, can run for 3 hours without charge.
Many homes around Australia are built on sloped blocks, making it a nightmare to mow. Even though you probably don’t enjoy wasting your weekends on chores like mowing, it’s even more complicated if you’ve got a complex lawn layout with slopes.
Here are some of the reasons why a slope mower makes perfect sense.
Sloped lawns are prevalent in Australia, but that doesn’t make them easier to mow. It’s difficult to even push your heavy old petrol mower up some of the slopes in your backyard.
Robot mowers that can handle sloped terrain are the perfect solution because you don’t need to lift a finger to enjoy a beautiful, healthy lawn. They are more convenient than even the best ride on mower for steep slopes.
If you have a sloped area to mow, using a robot mower is far safer than doing it yourself. Ride-on mowers aren’t really built for steep inclines and declines. Most organisations would consider it a WHS risk to have grounds staff using a ride-on mower for sloped areas. A robot mower takes away these risks.
Most people enjoy the result of a weekend lawn mowing session, but they don’t particularly like spending their time pushing a mower around. It’s especially so when there are slopes in your yard because everything seems to take longer. The solution is to find a robotic lawn mower for steep slopes.
With the innovative technology and intuitive mowing system provided by a robot mower, you can sit back and relax while the machine does the work. No more mowing on weekends!
Many robot mowers require a wire perimeter to function correctly. This tells the system where the mower can go and directs it back to the charging base when needed. The technology is outstanding, but what if you’ve only got a small yard and don’t want to worry about the wire perimeter setup?
Roboworld offers some impressive robotic lawn mowers that require no wire setup. Simply charge the unit and leave it to cut your lawn. These ’no setup’ mowers are usually rated for smaller areas and have a lower continuous run-time when compared to other models. However, they do a terrific job with your lawn and handle sloped yards exceptionally well.
