What's the Difference Between the RK Models?

The Robomow RK Series currently has four different models. Two of them are basic, and two of them are advanced versions.

The basic models are the RK1000 and the RK2000. The difference between these two models is their capability of mowing and their overall energy consumption.

Mowing Area

The RK1000 can mow up to 1000m2. On the other hand, the RK2000 can mow 2000m2.

Other differences include battery capacity and runtime. The RK1000 can run for 60 minutes after a full charge, and the RK2000 can run for 120 minutes.

RK Standard Vs RK Pro

Between the standard and the pro version, there is no difference in performance.

The difference is the price and the app compatibility.

The standard versions do not have any connectivity.

Everything will need to be set on the mower control panel, and it will run according to your schedule.

The Pro versions have app connectivity where you can update your mowing schedule directly from the app. This gives you much better control over the mower.

All the pro models have a GSM module for connectivity. Apart from this, there is no other technical difference between the standard and pro models.

The control panel of these RK mowers is a 4.3-inch colour touchscreen and a few buttons.

On both types of RK mowers, you can set up all the settings from this interface. In the pro models, you can do all the settings from the app.

Safety & Security 

The RK series comes with all sorts of safety and security features. There is a four-digit pin system for accessing the settings.

For anti-theft, there is an alarm system. For child safety, we have the lift and tilt sensor. It also has a hood sensor for avoiding obstacles.

Robomow RK Performance

All the RK mowers have the same attributes. Just different capacities. Two can cover 1000m², and the other two can cover 2000m2 with a much powerful battery. Two can be controlled with the app, and the other two cannot interact with the app.

So let us look at their common functions and see how well they perform.

Mowing Pattern

The Robomow RK Series mowers use a randomly generated pattern to cover mow your lawn. This way, the mower will go over the lawn multiple times to ensure a clean and freshly mowed lawn.
