Robotic lawn mowers have an unparalleled safety record with zero accidents. Compare that to the horrendous list of injuries caused by traditional petrol lawn mowers which are the leading cause of amputations in children in the U.S. And flying debris striking bystanders results in a large number of hospitalisations.
Robot lawn mowers sit really close to the ground with a very low centre of gravity. This makes them extremely difficult to overturn. The blades are deeply set underneath the chassis where fingers and toes can’t reach.
And the automatic cut-off switch that all robot mowers feature will quickly stop the spinning blades from turning if by any chance a curious child or pet overturns your mower. The mower can only be restarted by punching in a secure pin number.
