Hints & Tips
The easiest way to cut the lawn is to pour a glass of wine and relax in a deck chair.
For robotic lawnmowers are becoming more popular this year and here’s an Italian-made one with a massive £800 off the maker’s recommended retail price.
The Oleo-Mac Orion Fully Automated Robotic Lawn Mower with Docking Station makes it possible to have a lawn the envy of your neighbours with virtually no effort.
The mower comes with perimeter line which is pegged out around the lawn’s edge and a docking station which needs fitting down and connecting to an electricity supply, a job which is easily undertaken with no specialist knowledge.
The little machine has a 25.2 volt lithium-ion battery and charges up in only two hours. And it can work on lawns with slopes up to 36 degrees.
The blades shred the clippings and let them fall back to the lawn where they rot away to become a useful fertilizer.
The mower can drive over obstacles if they are under seven cm high and around them if they are taller. And as a safety device the machine cuts out if it is lifted.
It will work through wet weather but you can tell it to make its way home if you prefer as it is fitted with a rain sensor which you can activate.
It has a working width of 30 cm and cutting heights from 30 mm up to 60 mm.
It costs just £1099, as we said £800 off the maker’s recommended retail price. It is delivered free the next working day and has a three year warranty from Oleo-Mac.
