Whilst robotic lawnmowers generally have been around now for a few years, there is a new breed of robotic mower on the market – meet the Worx Landroid. Like all other models of Robotic Lawn Mowers, these devices take away the physical task of mowing the lawn but the landroid mower has more bells and whistles – it is way smarter than other brands. Like other brands, there is no big blade, this mower uses very small blades and cuts the grass using a ‘mulching’ method the obliterates the grass clippings and is reabsorbed into your lawn to feed it.
But how is this different to other models and what makes it smarter ?
Find out below..
Smarter. Intelligent. In every way
With the assistance of AIA Intelligent Navigation, the Worx Landroid Mower automatically adjusts to the size and shape, grass growth rate of your lawn. It is essentially a ‘lawn manicure’ and once it gets to work it won’t take long before you notice a real difference in the look, quality and health of your grass.
By simply mowing every couple of days this will help promote the grass density and prevent weeds from coming through.
The all new Worx Landroid Mower constantly learns from the worx fleet of thousands of connected robotic mowers and updates itself on a regular basis. It is agile, very safe, accurate and comes packed with many customizable features and just like other brands of robotic lawn mowers, when the battery level is low it will automatically return to it’s docking station when it needs to recharge.
You can also adjust the height at which the blades but the grass using a 20-60mm dial. As a rule of thumb do not put this setting all the way down from the word go, as this will result in an unevenly mowered lawn, meaning that the smallest blades of grass do not get time to grow properly, you will then see brown patches on the grass and that is not good and will leave your lawn in an unhealthy state.
The best practice is to gradually set the cutting height, ensuring your lawn is even and healthy, giving your grass time to grow.
The worx landroid mower can automatically sense whenever the grass is wet therefore stops it from mowing, even if is already mowered or docked in it’s docking station, the mower will not begin mowing until the grass is dry. This prevents the mower from being clogged up with wet grass on its underside, thus needed more power to operate, therefore decreasing battery usage. Not mowing wet grass will also increase the operation life of the device.
AIA Intelligent Navigation
All new AIA Technology ensures that the Worx Landroid Mower mows your lawn more efficiently & effortlessly than standard robotic lawn mowers. As the most agile in robotic mowers on the market, it will easily navigate through narrow passages where other models won’t go near.
Quick Stop Blade
A great safety feature with this model is that Worx have programmed in a ‘quick stop blade’ system, and this is activated whenever the bot is lifted or tilted, the blade is immediately stopped thus eliminating any possible injury.
It is imperative that when you lay down the perimeter wire, you lay it down around the supplied docking station, which acts as a charging station too. This means that should you go out and your landroid is cutting the lawn, when the battery level is low it will return to it’s docking station to charge. This is important because there is a built in security system which relys on the battery to emit a loud shreaking alarm, in any event of someone attempting to steal it.
When you lift or move your mower normally, you are required to enter a security pin first, to prevent this alarm from going off.

The basic concept around all robotic lawn mowers is that they all work in the same way, but there are some including the Landroid Mower that has a few more bells and whistles, the ‘Ferrari’ of the Robotic Lawn Mower world. The clever technology behind the Landroid is exceptional, and with continuous software updates, new options and features can be added. If your lawn or yard is standard lawn with few obstacles, then the Landroid Mower is for you. It’s mulching technique ensures that your lawn is kept healthy after every cut, with no grass box required.
