A robot lawnmower is no lightweight purchase, and with so many options to consider it can be hard to pick one that's easy to operate and good at actually cutting the grass. 

We test robot mowers priced between $1299 and $3639 in real-world conditions to help you choose a model that's:

  • best for a standard lawn
  • best for damp grass and long grass
  • easy to use.
