WORX Landroid- Unmanned Mowing Vehicle
Welcome to the future of lawn mowing. Introducing the Landroid from WORX. The pre-programmable robotic mower that lets you customize daily mowing schedules, cutting heights and yard sizes. Among its many features, Landroid navigates narrow passages, cuts with precision, even on slopes up to 20 degrees, and does it all while delivering zero emissions. If your lawn is up to 1/4 acre and you want it to look great every day, Landroid mowing technology is designed precisely for you.
Bumper to Bumper Technology
The WORX Landroid uses an Artificial Intelligence Algorithm that allows it to cover any area of your lawn. This allows the Landroid to make minimal cuts each time which improves the health of your grass and provides fine mulch to feed your lawn. From a 28-Volt Lithium Ion battery to rain detection sensors and security features, the Landroid uses advanced technology to keep your lawn looking great everyday.
Everything is Included
The Landroid comes with everything you need to install and run your Landroid. The Charging Base plugs into your standard outlet and charges the Landroid within 45 minutes. The Landroid includes 590 feet of perimeter wire to create a perimeter around your yard. You can either create a small trench and bury the wire or use the 200 installation pegs and allow the grass to grow over the wire that sits on top of the ground. The Landroid even comes with 9 replacement blades (3 sets of 3), so you are ready to go when it is time to replace them.

The Worx Landroid is the pre-programmable robotic mower that lets you customize daily mowing schedules.

Top Customer Reviews
Company blames customer for communication issues, dropping a star.
I have always cut my yard so out the gate I used another electric push mower to trim the yard short. The Landroid is engineered to shave off small amounts of grass every time it cuts. Every month to month and a half I run the electric push mower around the edge of my yard where the Landroid does not reach due the guiding wire. I went from mowing my yard 4 times a months to just doing basic trimming every month and a half. Plus the mower is a great conversation piece and fun to watch with a beer in hand. My dog doesn’t seem to mind the mower and has quickly figured out what is “out of bounds” for the mower. It has to be raining hard for the sensor to kick in and send it back to base so for the most part it trims the grass on schedule every week. Programing the mower took a half hour and then I adjusted the schedule as needed.
You do have to keep sticks and small kids toys out of the yard. If the mower can make it over the item it will cut it up. If the item is large the mower will bump into it and turn around. The blades are easy to replace and I either sharpen or replaced the blades twice a season. The mower does an incredible job of mowing under my swing set. With a regular mower I could not reach this area and now I can.
At first I thought I would miss the “cut lines” in the yard that a traditional mower provides but the constant mowing keeps my grass cut short and you can not see the wheel lines created by the Landroid. I only have the mower installed in my back yard, I don’t have an access area for the front so I still have to trim the grass in the front with my regular mower.
I do wish the mower was programmable via my cell phone so I could update the schedule easily. I would also move the “Stop” button on the top of the mower or have a guard that covers it. My tire swing and swing set toys are at just the right height that if the mower goes under them it will hit the stop button. I have since raised the tire swing to avoid the problem.
Overall I am very pleased with the Landroid. The set up took longer than I anticipated and you do need to keep your yard clean of debris. I do unplug the mower and move it inside in the winter but I leave the charging station and wire installed in my yard.
I just added pictures. The are action shot of it actually mowing. My grass was 4 inches tall and after 8 cycles of mowing it looks like the images below. 8 cycles is about two days of mowing for 8 hours a day....it mows and hour and then charges and hour. I don't have the mower run on the weekends because the kids think it s toy or something to hit with a baseball bat so the grass grew over a raining Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I started it mowing on Monday. By the end of day on Tuesday it looked like the picture below. It did look patchy at first but after it got through a few mowing cycles it look great and randomly hit all of the spots in the yard. I still need to trim around the edge but as you see in the picture 95% of the yard look awesome. If you have a dog it will spread the poo out for you but I do advise picking it up as often as you can!
I wanted an unbiased opinion on the current state of the art, so I went to Consumer Reports. They had reviewed 4 of these units recently, and the top pick happened to be the Worx Landroid WG794. As an added bonus, the Landroid was also the least expensive. Something about knowing what you're doing and not being a greedy corporate villain made me an instant Worx fan. Next step was Google to seek reviews, videos, forums, manuals, etc. I always perform due diligence before committing to such an indulgence. From the looks of the internet landscape, the overall opinion was very positive. Finally, I start the bargain hunting process. Most of the time, I wind up on Amazon, due to reputation, price, and peace of mind. In this particular purchase, Amazon was indeed the lowest bidder, $160 below the $1K MSRP. For some reason, I take notice at the offer of an $80 gift card if I sign up for the Amazon Visa Card. I think why the hell not, it will make this deal that much sweeter and I can just cut up the card when it gets to me. Then a second offer comes to light: $40 gift card when you apply for the Amazon Prime Store Card. This time, I note the benefits of the card: no annual fee and 5% off all Amazon purchases? Why was I not using this card already?! I place order, able to checkout for a sweet deal of just under $700 (I had a bit of a gift card left to use as well) No 2 day shipping, but free nonetheless, so I'm satisfied.
I get the unit a week later and set it up in my back yard to start. Like any good bicentennial, I half-a** the installation by placing the boundary wire 8-10" from the fence line (14" recommended), separating the pegs by at least 5' (2.5' recommended), I don't bury the wire or even so much as try to work it into the grass, and on top of this the length of the lawn is from a full week of growth (recommended to mow lawn before installing). I'm not quite sure how I was expecting this setup to perform well by any means; I guess I'll say I wanted to see how the Landroid "behaved" before committing to a more permanent, proper installation. Of course the next few days is filled with "optimizing", while I effectively continue to try and jam a square peg through a round hole to make my style of installation work with the robo. But he was acting out against all this nonsense by slicing through or pulling out the boundary wire, not reacting to my 90 degree corners and alarm that he was "outside the working zone" and I couldn't once get him to actually enter into his charging station. Even if I set him right on the wire, 3 feet from the charger, and a straight shot home, he would turn of to the right at the last minute, bumping into the side of the house, causing him to reset and either try again, or wander off in another direction, simply refusing to fuel up so he wouldn't have to be subjected to this disgraceful work environment any longer.
On the fourth day I commit to doing things right, 14" gap from the fence/house, 2.5' between pegs, nice round corners, and I used a trimmer to outline a trench down to the soil level for the wire. The da** thing worked perfectly from that point forward. If you follow the directions, the Worx Landroid will serve you reliably and consistently. Try to pull anything else, trust me, you will lose the battle.
1. Misleading on how much time to setup the perimeter wire. I have a 1/4 acre lot and it took well over 6 hours if you include the fixes I had to make over time after watching it get stuck or go out of boundary. I will say if you follow the instructions to a T, you'll save yourself the fix times I spent.
2. The cutting mechanism is a spinning wheel with 3 "floating" razor blades and by floating I mean that with the centrifugal force of the wheel spinning the razor blades would extend and cut the grass. That is fine in principle, however, on multiple occasions, I had to take the blade off and clean the gunked up grass that was preventing it from spinning freely. This was the main reason I sent the Landroid back.
3. Customer service is horrible with this product. When you call Worx and if you are lucky enough to ever get through (waited on hold for over an hour a couple of times and just gave up), the person on the other end has no clue about this product... they are reading the same documentation you are.
