Are robot lawn mowers the next must have garden accessory?

You’ve seen robot vacuum cleaners – now meet Robomow, the piece of tech being pitched as the summer’s must have gadget.

Robomow is described as one of the leading robotic lawnmowers on the market and if spending hours getting your lawn ready for summertime socialising sounds daunting, then it’s the ideal gadget for you.

The new RX model, at £499, is designed to mow your lawn at regular intervals, regardless of your busy schedule, bringing all the benefits of the very latest in robotic technology to gardens up to 200metres-squared.

The RX is part of a wider family of eight Robomow models which can accommodate lawns up to 5000m2. Sharp steel blades enable the widest, most efficient cut in the category whilst the powerful mulching system means there is no grass box to empty, giving you even more time to man the all-important barbecue or relax on your lawn.

The RX12u will be available from £499 with eight models increasing up to the flagship RS635 Pro SX with an £2,999.
