Product Description

The LawnBott LB1200 Spyder is the world's first robotic mower that doesn't require a perimeter wire to operate. Able to maintain yards up to 5,500 square feet, the LB1200 keeps your lawn looking great, with less work from you. Using patented sensors, actually detecting grass, the LB1200 will move across your yard, mowing until it comes to a non-grass area: mulched flower beds, patio or driveway, then reverse direction. With its Li-ion battery, the LB1200 Spyder will mow for up to 5 hours without needing a recharge. And at a lightweight 18lbs, the LB1200 is very easy to move from its storage area to your lawn. When it is done, simply place it back in the garage and connect the charging cable so your LawnBott is always ready to go. By letting it cut a couple of times per week, your yard looks good all week long. No more overgrown lawns. And as a bonus feature, since most weeds need to flower to spread seed, by keeping your grass trim, the LawnBott helps to reduce the amount of weeds you have. The LawnBott only take about 7-10 a year in electricity to operate; a great low cost, energy efficient alternative to gas powered mowers. No gas, No oil and No noise; easier for you, better for the environment. With its 4-wheel drive and aggressive rubber tread design, the LB1200 can handle slopes up to 27-Degree and virtually any yard or grass type. No more sweating it out in the summer to cut your grass, smelly fumes to worry about, bugs biting you or allergies to ruin your day. With the LawnBott you can enjoy your yard without having to work at it. Now that will make our neighbors jealous. 2 year warranty on robot, 1 year warranty on battery.

I'm using my Spyder for the second year now on my centipede lawn, and I'm very happy with it.

Not for every yard, but could be a great product if you have the right yard.

The model being sold in the USA market is bigger than the model sold in the European market. The European Spyder weighs 18 pounds and is featured in many of the online videos for this product. However, the Spyder sold for the USA market weighs 23.2 pounds.

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.

Lawnbotts.com web site shows a "30 Day Money Back Guarantee" emblem, but it doesn't show anything like 'click here for details' or 'restrictions apply' - if you click the emblem you'll see that your lawn must be pre-approved 'to qualify for the 30 Day Trial (Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee)' and 'A 15% restocking fee will be applied to validated Spyder returns'.

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.

I purchased my 18 months ago, a demo from the dealer. It was a dream until I decided to do an update to the motherboard, which I had purchased the correct internet cable from the manufacturer. Opening it was the biggest mistake ever, as the "update" from the manufacturer was defective and shorted my board. Off I sent it to the only USA repair center at a cost of $50, even though it was under warranty, as you have to pay the shipping to send it there. 6 weeks and no repair, finally it was fixed when the new board came. However, it arrived damaged, one wheel broken. Be forewarned that the insides are plastic, and not a strong plastic, and this means that this mower is not built like my former robomower to handle drops or tough work.

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.

Verified Purchase
I wish I one of these things 30 years ago when my parents sent me outside to cut the grass. This thing is awesome, and I'm suprised that more people don't have them, although with the large price-tag, I definitely understand. If you can go without the extra flat screen TV in the house, then purchase this thing, because it is definitely a good investment. When I visited my parents house and used this thing for the first time, we were all amazed, especially my father, because at almost 70 years of age he no longer has to cut the grass, but now can watch the grass being cut by the lawnbott 1200. This thing is really tough too, we have really steep hill in the back of the house and it took a tumble and landed upside-down on concrete, but I picked it back up, set it on the grass and pressed start and it kept on going. So really pay attention to 27 degree incline, because anything more it may not make it

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...!!!
