New WORX Landroid S Robotic Mower Cuts Grass, Avails Homeowners More Leiasure Time

WORX Landroid S robotic mower

Owners of the new WORX Landroid S robotic mower have more leisure time for other summer activities and can skip trips to the gas station. This compact mower is powered by a 20V 2.0Ah MAX lithium battery and cuts lawns up to 1/8 acre or the equivalent of 5,445 sq. ft. unsupervised.

For homeowners with smaller lots, Landroid S takes the guesswork out of lawncare. Once programmed, this mobile machine takes charge and methodically cuts the lawn all season long.

When compared to hiring a lawn care service to cut the lawn, the homeowner’s should consider a cost comparison with a robotic mower. In most cases, a robotic mower can pay for itself in less than 1-1/2 seasons.

Landroid S is a smart, streamlined machine that’s programmable to cut the lawn in any day or time combination for an entire season using Landroid’s smart phone app, or directly through the mower’s LCD screen interface.

Landroid S features a floating blade system that automatically adjusts its cutting clearance height if it encounters an obstruction, such as a rock, stick or other object. The floating blade system provides continuous cutting action as the mower navigates the lawn.

The underside of Landroid S features a waterproof base, allowing the homeowner to rinse off grass, dirt or debris with a garden nose. Another new feature which is available on all Landroid is Bluetooth connectivity, in addition to Wi-Fi, to ensure a seamless set-up through the Landroid app.

With Landroid S, you don’t have to be home to cut the lawn. From a favorite coffee shop to attending an arts and crafts fair or farmers market, communication with Landroid is easily managed through its smart phone app.

Landroid S has a high-efficiency brushless motor which runs 50 percent longer and is 25 percent more powerful with 10 percent longer life than comparable robotic mowers with brushed motors. Also, Landroid S is quiet and won’t wake the neighbors regardless of its operating time.

The robotic mower’s 20V Power Share battery, is compatible with more than 75 other WORX lawn and garden, DIY and lifestyle products for cost savings and convenience.

Landroid S has three wheels and topside, six-position dial to adjust mowing height from 1.5 to 3.6 in. The mower’s cutting swath is 7 in. and it can navigate slopes or berms up to 20º (35 percent).

The mower’s deck is designed with “Cut to Edge,” which offsets micro cutting blades so they cut closer to the edge of the deck minimizing the need for follow-up trimming. And unlike conventional lawnmowers, Landroids don’t use a grass catcher. The tiny grass clippings mulch back into the lawn, acting like fertilizer for a vibrant, healthy lawn.

When it’s time to recharge its battery, Landroid automatically returns to its charging station. Once fully charged, it continues moving where it left off. When it rains, a built-in rain sensor sends the robotic mower back to its charging station. The rain sensor has a built-in timer that’s factory set. The timer’s duration can be adjusted so Landroid S doesn’t leave the charging station until the grass has dried.

Landroid S features a patented AIA (artificial intelligence algorithm) technology, which gives the mower problem-solving capabilities allowing it to cut the lawn more efficiently and navigate through narrow passageways.

No two lawns are exactly alike, so homeowners can expand the mower’s capabilities through optional accessories such as the Anti-Collision System (ACS, WA0860, $259.99), which enables Landroid to sense and avoid obstructions in the yard; GPS tracking/cellular connectivity is also available through “Find My Landroid” (WA0866, $309.99). Find My Landroid speeds recovery in the event the mower is stolen. The “Radio Link” module (WA0867, $209.99) extends Wi-Fi connectivity an additional 500 yards. It presents a stronger signal when there are interference areas in the yard such as trees, shed, garage or gazebo.

The Landroid Garage with lift top (WA0810, $169.99) provides protection and keeps Landroid out of the elements.

Landroid is immediately ready after installation with pre-programmed settings. Users have the option of customizing these settings via the Landroid app. The Landroid app has a variety of functions that let homeowners program, monitor and troubleshoot the mower. A newer feature is the lawn-size calculator. By walking the lawn’s perimeter with the Landroid app, it automatically calculates the size of the yard and configures a working schedule for the mower. Updates to the Landlord’s firmware can be uploaded automatically via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Other key features include multi-zone programming, which allows users to set up separate lawn-cutting zones, such as front and back yards, tiered locations and berms. Also, homeowners can set up a four digit pin number to lock the Landroid for security purposes. In the event the mower is stolen, only the correct pin number will enable the mower to re-start.

Built-in safety sensors stop the Landroid blades when it’s lifted or tipped. The sensors ensure that Landroid turns off or turns around when it encounters a person, pet or object.

Included with the Landroid S mower is one 20V 2.0Ah battery and charger, boundary wire, stakes, hex key, two measurement gauges, two wire connectors, nine replacement blades and eight lawn screws for securing the charging station. Landroid mowers are covered by the WORX three-year limited warranty.
