Keeping your lawn mowed is not a very easy task, but automatic garden lawn mowers make this task very simple for you. Choosing the right Automatic garden lawn mower is the key to a happy lawn. A very renowned gardener said ` Every automatic lawn mower does not fit your lawn. ` You have to be very careful while choosing your robot gardener.
A lot of factors should be kept in mind while buying your lawn mower. Below mentioned factors should be kept in mind:
- Area to be mowed: Area of the lawn plays a very crucial role in this decision. The capacity of the mower is decided by considering the area to be mowed.
- Cutting System: The cutting system of the mower should be not be ignored, the material of the blades their life plays a major role in the working of the mower. Before choosing the right mower, you must compare the cutting system of the mowers
- Emissions: If a mower is fuel powered, it will emit harmful gases which are not good for you. Electrically powered mowers do not emit gases. Hence, electric auto lawn mowers should be preferred.
- Noise: Noise of the lawn mower is very important factor. At times you might have to use your lawn mower for night shift and the noise can irritate you and your neighbors, it should be considered and if there is any sound, the reason should be confirmed.
- Energy Consumption: Your lawn mower should have efficient energy management system so that your automatic lawn mower should operate at a very low cost as compared to conventional lawn mowers.
- Wheels: Diameter of wheels plays a very important role in the working of the mower. More is the diameter; more is the capacity of mower to work at uneven terrain. Even the treading of the wheels helps in grip and helps the mower utilize its maximum power.
There are other factors which if present add icing to the cake. Latest Robot lawn mowers come with anti theft systems which make it easier to leave the lawn mower working alone.

Cleaning Up Our Garden Lawn Mower Co2 Emissions 2013 Using Robot Lawn Mowers!
Cleaning Up Our Gardening Emissions is Becoming an Alarming Health Fact!
Cleaning Up Our Garden Lawn Mower Co2 Emissions is now possible thanks to new robot lawn mowers in the UK, A big clean up is under way if home owners are to address the serious health and environmental issues in relation to petrol driven lawn mowers. Here is one solution or more that can help clean our air from petrol toxic lawn mowers. Thanks to the launch of more new eco friendly garden lawn mower machines. The fast-ever growing European robot lawn mower market along with the introduction of another brand competitor called Honda Miimo, its first commercial robotic product for domestic use by honda.
Honda Miimo is the perfect solution for those wanting a beautiful lawn but would rather not or can’t mow it themselves. The ultimate time and labor saving device, once installed it needs minimal human interaction when working to ensure a beautifully cut lawn, every day, for the length of the mowing season.
Honda Miimo operates a ‘continuous cutting’ system, typically mowing just 2-3mm of grass at a time, several times each week. It cuts in a random pattern, meaning less stress on the grass, more healthy growth and reduced moss and weeds. Unlike a traditional lawn mower it doesn’t need to collect cuttings, as the clippings it creates are so small that they are dispersed into the lawn root system, breaking down quickly to act as a natural fertiliser which improves the health and quality of the grass.
Honda Miimo navigates the garden through an intelligent combination of controls, timers and real-time sensory feedback. It works within a boundary wire, installed under the ground or in the grass around the perimeter of the garden. Honda Miimo detects the electronic signal in the wire and stays within it, ensuring high levels of safety and accuracy. Powered by a high performance lithium-ion battery, it is self-charging, constantly monitoring its battery level and returning to its docking station when it needs to recharge.
Uniquely, Honda Miimo features a fan, built-in to its blade holder, which creates airflow to effectively ‘suck’ the grass towards the blades. This ensures a superior finish and a more consistent distribution of clippings back into the root system. Additionally, in a first in the market, it uses three highly durable blades, which bend rather than shatter on impact with hard objects, eliminating the danger of pieces of broken blade being left on the lawn. Cutting height is adjustable between 20mm and 60mm, to suit the conditions and time of year.
European sales of robotic mowers are growing rapidly. With the garden increasingly used as an ‘outdoor living room’, people living busy lives and not wanting the work of maintaining a lawn; and an ageing population perhaps not able to do so, robotic mowers are a perfect solution. They also deliver excellent environmental benefits; not producing CO2, quieter than petrol models, and with no cuttings to dispose of.
Honda Miimo operates using one of three modes – ‘random’, ‘directional’ or ‘mixed’, to suit the size and type of garden. Random mode sees it navigate the lawn without a fixed pattern; whilst in directional mode it moves back and forth in a more uniform fashion to ensure a faster cut. Mixed mode allows intervals of random and directional cutting.
Honda Miimo features three independent 360 degree ‘bump’ sensors, which detect a solid contact between it and any obstacle. If a bump sensor is activated, it will stop, turn and move away from the point of contact in a different direction.
Honda Miimo can ascend slopes and when it encounters patches of thick or long grass it will automatically reduce wheel speed but maintain blade speed in order to deal with tough areas effectively.
Both safety and security are assured by two ‘lift’ sensors which are triggered if Honda Miimo leaves the ground. On activation it shuts down completely, an alarm sounds, and it cannot be used until the owner inputs a unique PIN. In line with new regulations this means that it cannot be picked up whilst the blades are turning, and it is rendered useless in the event of theft.
At launch, Honda Miimo will be available in two models, 300 and 500, offering a maximum perimeter cut of 300m and 500m respectively. Honda Miimo 500 will mow up to a total lawn size of 3,000 square metres, around half the size of a typical football pitch, making it suitable for a wide variety of gardens.
The introduction of Honda Miimo heralds a whole new model for Honda Lawn & Garden Authorized Dealers. Uniquely in the market, it will be sold as a full service package. Upon purchase, the dealer installs the docking station, which acts as both the charging point and signal generator. A boundary wire is connected to the docking station, then routed around the perimeter of the garden to define the mowing area. Honda Miimo is then programmed to cut to a schedule convenient to the customer, via its inbuilt timer and calendar. Then, at the end of the season the Honda Authorized Dealer collects it for winter maintenance, and, in some countries, winter storage.
Honda has been working in the development of robotics since 1986, with the predecessors of ASIMO, the world’s most advanced humanoid robot. Honda Miimo is the first commercial robotic product manufactured by the company for public use – representing its first step towards providing customers with robotic solutions to improve quality of life at home.
Honda Miimo will be manufactured by Honda France Manufacturing in Orlean. It will be available from Honda Authorized Dealers across Europe in early 2013.

Gardener’s Health Warning
Gardeners with petrol-driven lawnmowers could be exposing themselves to alarming amounts of cancer-causing chemicals. A petrol lawn mower takes only one hour to generate the same level of carcinogens as a car engine on a 100-mile journey, according to many new studies. [Ed. "A Gardener's Health Warning should be issued."]
Analytical chemist Dr Roger Westerholm, who did the research, said owners should consider fitting catalytic converters to their mowers to reduce the danger. The cost of manufacturing all petrol lawn mowers would rise dramatically, not to mention soaring petrol prices making petrol lawn mowers an unpopular choice for consumers when shopping on-line for a new lawn mower.
Dr Westerholm, who is based at Stockholm University in Sweden, said the carcinogens were contained in the four milligrams of poly-cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) emitted in one hour’s mowing.
He discovered 26 different PAHs in mower exhaust fumes, including 100 micrograms of benzopyrenes, which is widely implicated as a carcinogen in cigarette smoke.
The mowers also produced more than one pound of carbon monoxide and several grams each of methane, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and smoke particles.
Dr Westerholm said this was of particular concern because mowerusers would be in close proximity to the exhaust fumes as they cut the grass.
‘People are breathing these fumes in,’ he added. Lawnmowers are important sources of PAHs that have not been investigated before.
‘Some of these chemicals have been found to be carcinogenic in animals, and I would expect them to be carcinogenic in humans as well.’
Dr Westerholm said the four-stroke, unleaded petrol engine he tested was ‘typical’ of most modern lawnmowers.
‘It’s not good for your health,’ he warned. ‘I would solve the problem by using an electric lawnmower or by fitting a catalytic converter to petrol engines.’
Dr Westerholm, whose findings appear in the magazine New Scientist, said other petrol-powered garden tools, such as leaf blowers and chainsaws, should also be fitted with converters.
Lawn Mower Human Health Fact’s
You’re (Petrol Lawnmower) and Co2 Emissions Health Alert
EPA has finalized a new emission control program to reduce hydrocarbon emissions from small spark-ignition engines by about 35 percent. The new exhaust emissions standards will take effect in 2011 or 2012, depending on the size of the engine.
The final rule also includes new standards to reduce evaporative emissions from these fuel systems. These standards will reduce the harmful health effects of ozone and carbon monoxide from these engines.
This page provides consumer information, regulations, guidance, and compliance fee and certification data for ten categories of nonroad spark-ignition engines, ranging from lawnmowers and garden equipment through airport service equipment. For the homeowner, there is information about maintaining a lawn, while minimizing air pollution from spark-ignition engines.
