Robotic Lawn Mower Reaches US Just In Time For Summer Landscaping

By Brian Spaen

Roomba has been a tremendous accessory for home cleaning for those who can afford it. Perhaps when seeing the little circular device roaming around and picking up clutter all by itself, there was a thought of how nice it would be if there was a gadget that was able to mow lawns on a hot summer day. Believe it or not, somebody already made that device and it’s been released in the United States, minus California.

Honda created the Miimo robotic lawn mower back in 2015. It was only available in the United Kingdom before the company announcement it was heading to the US. As of right now, there are two different editions of the product: the HRM 310 and HRM 520. The major contrast between them is the former can mow up to 0.5 acres, and the latter can do 0.75 acres.

Similar to iRobot’s Roomba, or many other automatic floor-cleaning devices, the little unit runs around the lawn in a pattern to efficiently cut grass. It can be chopped up in five different modes: random, directional, mixed, spiral, and edge. Length of the grass desired can also be set on the system itself, along with programming when the machine can run. There are stands that can help the unit detect areas it can and cannot go into.
