Honda Japan has provided us with a time-lapsed video of the Honda Grass Miimo mowing a fairly overgrown 860m² paddock on a pretty steep hill.
In the video, the Grass Miimo spends five nine-hour days to complete the task. It also demonstrates its ability to operate effectively on a reasonably steep slope. This is definitely an area that the Honda robotic mower division has been working on since the Miimo 3000 is known for having a harder time on steeper slopes.
Here's the time-lapse if you were interested...
Where Will the Grass Miimo Be Used?
Due to its large 4000m² mowing area, the Grass Miimo would be best suited for large residential properties or small commercial properties. The manufacturer describes that the Grass Miimo can be used at small farms, schools, and sports centres to assist in maintaining grass growth.
Without a doubt, the Grass Miimo would be perfect for someone with a large backyard, as shown in the video, this robotic mower has little to no difficulty slashing through some seriously long grass over a large area.
Our Thoughts on the Grass Miimo
Overall, the successor to the Miimo 3000 looks like a powerful mowing machine that can navigate steep slopes, rough terrain and deal with thick long grass with relative ease. As the Grass Miimo hasn't been released outside of Japan, we cannot draw a complete conclusion as of yet. However, we highly anticipate the arrival of the Grass Miimo so we can begin some hands-on testing for ourselves.
