Robomow RT 300/700 Mowing Performance
When it comes to mowing performance, the Robomow RT is one of the best in the business, with its unique design and smart navigational system, it can achieve some really good results. Let's break it down...
Robomow robotic mowers are known for their uniquely designed cutting blade configuration. The Robomow RT uses a single, razor-sharp, dual-sided rotating cutting blade instead of the convention 3 pivoting blade system used by most other models in the market. This unique design allows the RT to mulch more effectively while keeping underneath the deck relatively clean.
One of the RT's drawbacks is its relatively bad mow-to-charge ratio when comparing it to the rest of the market.
Both models are going to need 180 minutes to fully recharge. The RT 300 will get 75 minutes of mowing time per charge, while the RT 700 will mow for 90 minutes.
Patented Anti-Slip Wheels
One of the really cool features of the Robomow RT is that it's equipped with Robomow's specially designed anti-slip wheels which allow maximum grip on all types of grass.
This really comes in handy if your lawn contains a few sloped areas or has a few slippery patches here and there, where other robotic mowers may have got stuck, the Robomow will easily soldier on as if nothing happened.

Robomow RT 700 Vs Worx Landroid M1000
Today we'll be using the Robomow RT 700 to compare to the Worx Landroid M1000. Both models are at the top of the robot lawnmower food chain. Let's see how that match up...
Robomow RT 700 Vs Worx Landroid M1000: Features
As far as overall features go, these models are quite evenly matched. Both the Robomow RT 700 and The Landroid M1000 offer an impressively well-developed mobile app that allows you to schedule mowing times, track progress, monitor your mower and much more.
As far as maximum mowing area, the Worx M1000 can manage larger areas of up the 1000m² while the Robomow RT700 can mow up to 700m².
Robomow RT 700 Vs Worx Landroid M1000: Battery Capacity
In this category, the Landroid is the clear winner. The M1000 will last up to 120 minutes while mowing and require 90 minutes to recharge fully. The RT 700 will also mow for 90 minutes, but it's going to need a huge 180 minutes to recharge fully. That's twice as long as the Landroids.
The Landroid M1000's battery is far superior in this model.
Robomow RT 700 Vs Worx Landroid M1000: Safety
When it comes to safety, all robotic lawnmower manufacturers take things very seriously, and these two models are no different. Both of these robotic mowers are equipped with numerous safety functions, including emergency stop buttons, tilt sensors, bump sensors and lift sensors with an instant stopping cutting blade that activates as soon as one of these sensors are triggered.
Robomow RT 700 Vs Worx Landroid M1000: Noise
Both the RT 700 and the M1000 will sit on around 65db while mowing, which is a bit louder than the industry average of 57db, although you probably wouldn't be able to notice the difference.
Robomow RT 700 Vs Worx Landroid M1000: Pricing
You'll be able to get yourself a Worx Landroid M1000 for around AU$2100, which is quite a bit more expensive than the Robomow RT 700, which you can purchase for about AU$1900.

How to Install the Robomow RT
So you've gone out and purchased the Robomow RT, you're over the moon and cant wait to see it in action, but there's one small problem, you aren't exactly sure how to set it all up... Lucky for you, we've spent hundreds of hours setting up and installing robotic lawnmowers, we're here to walk you step-by-step on how to install your Robomow perfectly.
You're going to want to give yourself at least 6 hours to install your robotic lawnmower, this isn't something you should rush, it's far better to take your time and set everything up properly the first time than have to come back and fix things later on, so just relax and take your time reading these steps. The better you install it, the better the mower is going to perform.
Step-by-step guide on how to install the Robomow:
Step 1: Gather your installation tools
Before starting the installation it's important to make sure you've got all the installation parts and tools.
-Charging base power supply
-Charging base stakes
-A set of pliers
Once you've gathered all your equipment, it's time to start step 2.
Step 2: Planning
It's important to have a clearly drawn plan before you start hammering away at your wire pegs.
Draw an overview of your property and;
-Choose a spot for your charge station (keep in mind that it needs to be accessible to the power supply
-Draw a line around your property, to isolate any flowerbeds, ponds and other areas you don't want your mower to go, simply draw a straight line from your boundary line to the area you wish to isolate, go around the area and then follow your original line back to the boundary line and continue around your perimeter.
Step 3: Laying perimeter wire
For this, you'll need your wire, wire pegs, hammer and your RoboRuler.
-Start at your chosen charging base location leave 30cm from the end of your wire free (you'll be needing this later to connect to your charging base), then secure the wire by hammering the wire peg completely into the ground.
-Refer to your supplied RoboRuler to help gauge the distance that you need to place your wire from the boundary. (By doing this you can control where you want the Robomow to edge-mow and where you want the Robomow to leave unmowed)
-Continue to run your wire around your property boundary according to your drawn plan and back to your charging station, placing a wire peg approximately every 1 meter.
-In corners, instead of placing your wire at a hard 90° angle, round it off with a 45° angle. This helps the Robomow mow more fluently in corners.
Step 4: Installing charging station
Now that you've successfully placed your boundary wire, it's time to install your charging station and connect it to the wire.
-At your chosen charging station location, you'll now have 2 ends of boundary wire, each of the ends measuring 30cm in length.
-Clamp a provided plot connector to the end of each end of the boundary wire
-Place your charging station base in its chosen location, aligning the center of the base along your boundary wire
-Fix your charging base in place by hammering the 4 provided stakes into the ground
-Run both ends of your boundary wire and your power supply cable through the hole in the back of your charging base
-Connect the ends of each into the head of your charging station
-Connect the head of your charging station into the charging base by sliding it into place
-Finally, plug your charging station into your chosen power outlet, ensuring that all power cords are hidden and cant be compromised
