Lazy? Get a robot to mow your lawn. Keep your cat inside.

The Automower is very simple to operate. You continuously get a good result without any effort from you as a consumer. Once you have installed the Automower, it independently ensures that your lawn is well cut, without any involvement from your side â€" whether you are at home, in the office or on holiday. Your lawn will always remain well maintained, but you do not perform the actual task of mowing. The product is very light compared to conventional mowers, weighing only 8.6 Kg. The control panel is easy to understand and operate - once in use the Automower can be left to it´s own devices! The Automower works as a natural fertiliser. Since your lawn is continuously cut you do not need to collect any waste. The cut lawn residue acts as a natural fertiliser for your lawn. (AutoMower)
