Nevertheless, it's a great machine! I love mine. It's great to be able to relax on the patio with a cold drink, and watch the grass being cut by this machine.
Initially, I had a problem with one of the two drive belts breaking on two separate occasions, which was caused both times by a screw which kept working loose from the center of the right front axle, inside the case. (There are four short axles - one for each wheel.)
Replacing the loose screw that had worked out from its location in the center of the axle required removing the top cover from the machine - finding the loose screw in the case - and then replacing it in the axle. Before replacing it the second time, I coated the threads of the screw with Loctite so it would never come loose again. - Wonder why the manufacturer didn't do that?? Oh, well.
The two drive belts transfer power from the two direct drive rear axles to the two front axles, giving the machine its four wheel drive. The machine will still cut grass with broken belts, since the rear wheels will continue to propel the mower. But the cutting pattern will be badly disrupted, it will have problems climbing slopes, and there will be some loss of traction and spinning wheels when backing up and turning.
A quick test to check whether you have a broken belt is to try spinning the front wheels with your hand. If either front wheel turns freely with no resistance, then the respective belt is broken and needs to be replaced.Read more ›
Of course, we didn't know this when we bought their Spyder LB1200 model, so when we received it - and it didn't work on our lawn - we called them and they told us that our lawn hadn't been pre-approved --- so they simply refused to take it back!
We had to file a dispute with our credit card company, who mediated and finally got Lawnbotts.com to agree to take the return for a 30% restocking fee (yep 30%). BUT WAIT --- on top of that, they charged us $40 Shipping & Handling (we paid the return postage ourselves), PLUS a 3% transaction fee (because by this time it was beyond 59 days of purchase), PLUS the cost of a new mowing blade (because we had opened the blade package to assemble the Spyder) --- keep in mind that this machine had never cut a single blade of our grass!
So we paid them $1,199 and they ended up refunding us only $715.83. Hope you learn from our costly mistake!
Lawnbotts.com does not operate in a professional, customer service oriented way - we recommed buying elsewhere.
At another cost of $50, I sent it back to the only USA repair shop. It was sent back "repaired", but the "repaired" wheel had the broken piece replaced with a different than original piece that is defective. I searched online and found a now defunct complaint blog where other lawnbott owners were complaining about their broken wheels being replaced with cheap plastic pieces.
What this meant for me is that my mower which originally could climb and mow with power, now has a defective back wheel that slips constantly so I hear a click-click-click and it will get stuck repeatedly. On average, I have to "unstick" my mower about 50 to 80 times as it mows. You can bet I sent it back again, at another cost of $50. After another "repair" it came back with the same functionality.
I was out $150 all from trying to "upgrade" my motherboard according to the manufacturer's instructions. If you buy this, I warn you to never never get tempted to do an "upgrade" or open it without cause as, at least mine, shorted with each opening.Read more ›
The only con, is that it does not cut in a set pattern and goes all over the place, but I don't mind that. Every once in awhile there may be a couple of patches, but if you have a weed wacker then you can knock that out easily, although if you let it run until the battery dies, then it will pretty much cut everything. The battery life is awesome too, I sat that thing in yard, maybe for 4 to 5 hours before it called it quits.
*note: if you have solar lights or something planted in the yard that you don't want broken, please remove it because the lawnbott 1200 take no prisoners...!!!
