The Worx Landroid is the pre-programmable robotic mower that lets you customize daily mowing schedules. The Landroid runs 7 days a week giving your lawn a continuous manicured look by giving the grass a trim on a routine basis as opposed to traditional mowers that take off substantial amounts of grass on a less frequent basis. Among its many features, Landroid navigates narrow passages, cuts with precision on slopes angling up to 20 degrees and does it all with zero emissions. If your lawn is under 10750 square feet and you want it to look great every day, the Landroid is designed precisely for you. The Intuitive keypad makes it easy to customize a mowing schedule so your lawn is neatly mowed every day. The low noise operation allows you to mow during the day or night. This allows you to wake up to a freshly mowed lawn every morning. The Landroid runs off of a 28V rechargeable battery so there are zero emissions.

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.
UPDATE: almost 4 months in and still working great. I did encounter the battery being too deeply discharged once when it got stuck and was sitting for a few hours it didn't make it back to charge then wouldn't power on. I searched and a youtube post shows how to charge the battery when it is out of the mower by connecting wires to the charger prongs and directly to the battery for ~15 minutes. After that I was able to get it to power on and it hasn't happened again...
- Unit continues to work great...able to deal with most small objects which blow or are left on the lawn
- Neighbors think the lawn looks as it good as it did with the lawn service...for a lot less (admittedly the service did trim the lawn, which I now have to do).
- Makes virtually no noise.
- Sufficiently dependable that frankly it has become boring.
- It has freed up enough time to work on other projects around the house.
I needed a small lawnmower..the choices were spend $400 for a push behind mower or go crazy and spend $900 for a robotic lawn mower which I did not see how it could work. Of course being technically oriented, I put caution to the wind and went for the robot. My wife laughed that setting up this robot would take all summer and I would end up purchasing the push behind mower anyways. Well, 4 hours after opening the box, the landlord was busily cutting the grass and has not stopped in the last two weeks. Even my wife admitted the lawn looks better than it did when we had the $3,500/year lawn service cutting the lawn. All I have to do now is spend 15 minutes per week trimming around the edge of the lawn. Net savings: $2,600 (for the first year) and 1 hour pushing the lawn mower each week.
The Landroid robotic lawn mower is such a hit that the family has even named it. Of course the landlord is not perfect. Below is a list of pros, cons and lessons learned:
- The boundary wire sets up very quickly if you follow the instructions
- The small 28 volt battery does not really affect performance, because the Landroid will automatically return to base
- Because it is designed to run every day there are no clippings to clog the lawn mower shot and then drop off in a back compost pile.
- The Landroid is VERY VERY quiet. You will not even notice it running on the lawn. Much better than my previous lawn service.
- If you lay the boundary wire on the lawn secured with pegs, be prepared for line cuts. The documentation does state you will want to bury the line once the positioning is right.
- The ruler provided on the box to measure out the distance between the lawn edge and the boundary wire did not seem very accurate. I spent a lot of 4 hours setting up the unit just moving the wire around.
- There is not a phone nor web app to let you know if the Landroid is running or has gotten stuck. Fortunately, it has only gotten stuck once in the last 2 weeks.
- If you let the lawn get a little long prior to installing the landroid, borrow a neighbor's lawn mower. It really does not like long grass (that was another hour out of the 4 hours total setup time).
- The rain sensor as some have already mentioned in their review does not seem to engage during light rain.
- Have electrical tape ready before you start installing the landroid
- If setting up the Landroid over the weekend, know that the standard program won't start executing until monday and will stop on Friday
- Get the boundary wire as close to the lawn edge as you can to avoid using the lawn trimmer
- The manual says that the boundary wire should be at angles greater than 90 degrees. I have found on my lawn that you can get very tight with the angles as well you have have spaces smaller than 3 feet wide. But of course, following the manual's instructions probably is better idea :).
- Don't worry about bumps in the lawn nor 'small roots' which are lower than the blade height. The large wheels have successfully cleared some obstacles I missed during the setup when I was trying to even out the lawn and make it easier for the Landroid.
- Make certain you have a weatherproof plug and water tight box for the charger. The day after installing the Landroid we had a major rain storm and the Landroid charger tripped the GFCI circuit breaker. A week later had a similar storm after securing the charger and no such problem.
