    Consumer Reports is an uninformed robotic lawn mower hating publication that chose the wrong brands for their test. This test is incredibly biased and did not include the Ambrogio lawnbot (a.k.a. LawnBott), the best mower out there. But it's obvious that it wouldn't matter if they tested a robot that resolved every one of their complaints, they would find another reason to hate it. It's time for the "old guard" at Consumer Reports to retire and for some fresh new thinkers to come in. Then we could get a test that is actually helpful to consumers.

    It looks like they only function on grass that doesn't actually need cutting.

    There is obvious bias at consumer reports. I used to subscribe to them. There are many gas powered mowers so why did they say Honda?! Also just from my research the robot mowers are in continuous operation and it takes time to get the cut right.

    Might want to do another video like this. There are MUCH cheaper "China direct" robot mowers coming out that are worth looking into.

    How can these robotic mowers be so useless?? AI revolution clearly still some way to go … I imagine it is due to cost of sensors, which will presumably drop going forwards?

    Hello Consumer Reports. We definitely want to thank you for reviewing our Landroid. Having a trusted well known company like Consumer Reports testing our product says a lot about our brand making an impact on the lawn and garden market. Having a robotic mower does take time to install and set up but pays off in the long run. Thank you for pointing that out. We do appreciate the honest feedback. Thanks again from WORX and keep up the good work.

    I would rather just do it myself instead of a robot doing it for me.

    I am holding out for solar-powered robotic sheep.
    Living in Michigan a small lawn is a minor deal – 30 minutes a week in the summer.
    Winter snow on the other hand …

    In conclusion: Drone lawn mowers are a good idea, but have not even remotely been perfected yet.

    Walking is good for you. And reel human-powered mowers are cheaper to buy and use. Not to mention quieter and less stinky.

    if you really hate mowing, install a synthetic yard;

    I'd rather cut my lawn, to a lot of us it's not a chore.
