Automated Mowers vs Traditional Mowers

It’s no secret that automated mowers are quickly gaining prominence in the lawn care industry. Automated mowers offer ease of use and peace of mind knowing your lawn is getting taken care of with little effort from you.

Merits of Robot Lawn Mowers over Traditional Mowers


The main consideration when thinking about automated mowers vs traditional mowers is how they operate—traditional mowers require a dedicated amount of time and effort, and a robotic mower is self-propelled and uses sensors and navigation technology to cut the grass without human intervention. 

Noise Levels:

Grass cutting robots are much quieter than many traditional mowers. This is partly because they run on electricity rather than gas like traditional lawn mowers, and also because the short length of grass they cut per mow requires less power in each pass.


What is scalping when it comes to your lawn? Scalping refers to when the grass is cut too short—much lower than the recommended height for mowing. This can lead to more cutting off the blades of grass than intended, which can result in an uneven and sparse lawn. Scalping is considered harmful to plant health, as it increases the likelihood of diseases and causes weed growth. Robotic mowers mow in random patterns, which keeps wheel ruts from forming and causing less scalping.


Traditional lawnmowers require routine maintenance, like the sharpening of blades and the replacement of parts and oil. They also usually require gasoline. Automated mowers require less maintenance—all you need to do is clean the mower, ensure charging, and occasionally replace blades as needed.

Less Pollution:

While many traditional mowers still run on emissions-producing combustion engines, robotic auto mowers use electricity, ensuring a zero-emission output to accompany your convenient well-kept lawn.
