LawnBott LB3510 photos – first appearance on web

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

A dream come true for allergy sufferers!

Covered in fresh Alabama pollen, the new LawnBott LB3510 robot mower

LawnBotts.com post the first photo of the LB3510

LawnBott LB3510 covered in pollen while mowing – you saw it here first!

Allergy sufferers dream come true!

This is one of our test LawnBott LB3510’s in action… we are working hard on updating our reviews and website to reflect all of our findings in this freshly updated LawnBott. Since it’s going to be a while before we get clean photos up for our main website I decided to snap a couple of photos to get us by.
Please excuse the pollen… if you think this is bad you should see my car!
Some highlights include:
  • Higher cutting height: 3 1/8 inches (or slightly more with the blade guard removed)
  • Rubber bumper on the front with improved bump sensitivity
  • Green shell modified to fit the new larger wheels
  • Larger, wider rear wheels (spiked wheels not available)
  • New front wheel design
  • New user menu with more options
  • Compass function done via inclinometer
  • Plus lots of other improvements with programming and other hardware enhancements

3.375 inch mowing height: LawnBott LB3510 (blade guard removed)

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

I removed the blade guard from the LawnBott LB3510 and measured it at almost 3.375 inches in height!  With the blade guard on, the max cutting height is around 3 1/8 or 3.125 inches.

The blade guard was added in 2008 in order for the LawnBott to be accepted by the CPSC.  The LawnBott is the only robotic mower that is accepted by the CPSC.  But if you want to gain extra cutting height, removing the blade guard is a quick and simple way to do so.

kyodo announces price increases for 2010

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

LawnBott’s US distributor, Kyodo America is sighting deflation of the US dollar as the reason for this year’s price increase. The prices have increased a lot for most LawnBott robotic lawn mowers this year… we’re talking a $500+ increase for some models making it the largest price jump to date.

The good news is: if you bought a LawnBott in previous years, you could sell it used and earn a profit if you can dare live without it!

The trend for increasing prices for robot mowers aren’t new. When I bought my first robotic lawn mower, Robomower RL500, about 8 years ago, I paid the retail price of $499 for it. Today Robomowers are more than double that amount.

Soon we will be updating pricing on our online store. If you know you’re going to order a LawnBott, I suggest doing so now before the new prices show up! You will get a 2010 mower at 2009 prices if you’re quick enough.

The 2010 LawnBott prices are as follows:

LawnBott Spyder LB1200: $1,399 (no change)
LawnBott LB2110: $2,299
LawnBott LB2150: $2,599
LawnBott LB3210: $3,399
LawnBott LB3250: $3,699
LawnBott LB3500: $3,999
