While robotic lawn mowers aren’t exactly a “new” thing, the technology for them is evolving faster than ever.  More and more lawn care pros and lawn-lovin’ homeowners are keeping a close eye on the robotic lawn mower revolution, which is spurring even more development in this exciting new technology. 

In this article, we’re going to look at the hottest new models for 2022. You’ll get the info on what’s been updated about each model, and which updated robotic lawn mowers might work best for you. 

Husqvarna Automower 415X: Perfect for Larger lawns and homeowners who want to “set it and leave it”

While this mower ain’t cheap (costs start at $2,300), you get a mower that can tackle big lawns up to 1,500m^2. With many of its advanced tech features, it’s one of the better mowers where you can just set it and forget it. 

The base price will get you the mower, 6pc extra blades, a charging station, power supply, and a two-year warranty. Performance-wise, it’ll cut a maximum of 50mm and a minimum of 20mm. If your yard has a slope, this mower will still cut at a 40% max slope.

Pros

  • GPS tracking: This helps the mower swiftly navigate through your lawn, making any turns and adjustments as needed.
  • Anti-theft: Nobody will successfully steal this mower. It lets off a loud alarm that can only be turned off with a PIN you create.
  • Quiet mowing: As soon as you let this mower run, you can relax and probably won’t hear much of the noises it makes
  • App control: Give your mower any command from the convenience of your phone

Cons

  • Long set up: It may take you a while to properly set up the wires
  • Many boundary readjustments: The mower won’t work with the boundaries correctly the first time. You need to play around with the boundary to find that sweet spot in the mower’s performance.

Who’s it for?

If you’re someone who takes vacations often but still wants to keep your lawn looking crisp, this updated robotic lawn mower is great to schedule and let it run. You will need to move objects out the way before you go.

Gardena Sileno

The new year brings new opportunities and improvements for Gardena’s mower lineup. The new editions of the Sileno series will come with LONA, which is localization and navigation. This will provide you with the exact location of the mower while it’s on the lawn. Prepare for even more precise, cutting-edge (get it?) lawn mowing.

Pros

  • Budget-friendly: Prices for the Sileno models begin at $630
  • Advanced tech: This new tech will sense parts of the lawn that won’t grow as fast, like shaded areas

Cons

  • Remove small objects before use: While the tech can sense when it approaches decent-sized objects, it may not navigate as smoothly if there’s something like a yard tool in the way.

Who’s it for?

Because there are multiple models, the Sileno can be used for small and large lawn sizes. It’s noticeably more budget-friendly than most other robotic mowers on the market, yet it doesn’t sacrifice cutting quality.
