There are robotic mowers for almost every lawn size: while the compact class at the lower end of the scale is designed for 150 m², professional robotic mowers can handle 10,000 m² and more. For the home garden, there is a whole range of different models for small and large gardens alike. But area output alone is not enough. What other features should a robotic mower for 2,600 m² have?
When looking for a suitable robotic mower, one of the first things to look at is certainly area output. This tells you how many square meters the robot is designed for. With that being said, this figure should be carefully considered. Some manufacturers specify a maximum area output, which is usually achieved under truly ideal cutting conditions. This means a garden without slopes or a complex layout. In reality, this is rarely the case.
The manufacturers are also aware of this and sometimes give another value with the "recommended area output", which provides better orientation. This is up to 30% below the maximum output and thus takes into account those challenges that can reduce area output. This provides a first good guide value. The second is derived from the mowing time.
The question arises as to which mowing duration the calculation of the maximum area output is based on. Some robotic mowers only leave their charging stations for 12 hours a day due to software limitations. Others can make their rounds 24 hours a day. A device that mows the same area in less time is obviously more efficient.
Regardless of the potential mowing time, hardly any garden owner wants to have the robot working around the clock. Perhaps Sundays are the perfect day to take off, or nights so that the robot stays in its garage to protect nocturnal wildlife, or in the afternoons while the children are playing in the garden. Your garden helper is not the only one who deserves a break now and then. All of these should be taken into account when considering the area output you will need, and don't skimp on the maximum power based on your garden size. A model that is designed for somewhat larger areas will cut 2,600 m² in a short time.
The more power the battery brings, the faster the robotic lawnmower can completely mow the 2,600 m². When choosing a battery, a heavy duty Li-Ion battery is recommended. These batteries are characterized by an ideal ratio of weight and capacity. Mowing times of more than 90 minutes are no challenge for these battery types, while recharging takes just over an hour.
A lawn area of 2,600 m² is rarely rectangular and level. Rather, there are bumps and divots in the ground, slopes or corners in the garden that require skillful turning maneuvers. In order to cope with these challenges, other features are recommended for your new robotic lawnmower:
Garden owners who purchase a robotic mower usually want to spend as little time as possible on lawn care. This leaves more free time to enjoy the garden to the fullest. To be successful at this and to eliminate time-consuming retouching that would be required of a - 2,600 m² lawn, other features of a robotic mower are helpful:
Of course, on top of these functions, there are a whole range of other helpful features such as GPS navigation, app control or additional sensors that can further optimize handling. To what extent these are worthwhile depends on your personal preferences.
