Mowing has never been so easy. The Robmower RL500 is a fully-robotic lawnmower that mows your grass so you don't have to. It's convenient, safe, and simple. Easy operation allows use by virtually anyone and can be used in almost any garden and lawn environment.

Simply put the mower in the yard and press 'go.' It mows. You don't. It is convenient and allows you to mow the lawn when you want without the hassle of scheduling lawn services or taking time away from family activities. It's safe. Less human contact and interaction reduces the chances of serious injury associated with power equipment. Easy to install and environmentally friendly. It can save you up to 50 hours a year! That's a lot of free time you can spend as quality time with your family, on vacation, or doing whatever you really like to do (ie.. waiting up for woot)

Note: These are brand new factory sealed units that have been warehoused for over two years due to a bankruptcy landlord seizure from a past Friendly Robotics distributor. Due to strategy of the current distributor, they will attempt to avoid the implied end user warranty of these units (feel free to check with them). Therefore, these specific units are backed with a 90 day distributor warranty by Surplus Technology who has performed adequately for woot buyers in the past. Please complete your warranty card upon receipt. Please note before purchase - return freight, though seldom necessary, is your responsibility.
