Robomow has accustomed us with nothing but the best when it comes to robotic lawn mowers, being the company that produced the magnificent Robomow RS622. Another top of the line model that they offer to customers is the Robomow RC306, a robot that defies expectations and that raises the bar when it comes to performance due to its impeccable design and array of features. This model is recommended for lawns that measure up to an eighth of an acre. On the ECO mode, it produces only 64 dB while operating, and it produces 67.9 dB under high load conditions. When it comes to pricing, you can have this stunning robot in your yard for $1300, a price that is fair considering what it has to offer.

Mowing performance

The cutting height of the robot can be adjusted between 0.6 inches and 3.1 inches, thus ensuring that you will be able to cut the grass at the exact height you desire. It can handle lawns that have multiple zones, mowing each of the zones in conformity with the preferences that you have. Due to the fact that it can easily navigate through narrow passageways without your help, there’s nothing much that you have to do when it operates. Also, it can mow inclines and declines of up to 36 percent or 20 degrees. Unfortunately, it lacks the floating deck feature, which means that it won’t cut even when it crosses bumpy areas.

Smart features

The operation of this robot lawn mower can be customized as the user pleases, which ensures that it will perform as you expect and desire every time. It features a rain sensor that allows you to choose whether it will operate during rain or high humidity conditions. When the battery starts to run out of power, the unit returns to the charging station on its own. Once the power is replenished, it will pick up from where it left off to ensure that you will find the lawn perfectly mown when you return home. It’s smartphone compatible, meaning that you can program it to start mowing or change all the settings as you please remotely over your smartphone. This model features a smart anti-theft feature that ensures no one will be able to use it, except for those who know the PIN code. On the downside, it lacks an alarm that goes off when it leaves the perimeter of your home. Therefore, you won’t receive any heads up when someone is trying to steal it.

Design and accessories

The unit measures 24 inches by 18 inches by 8 inches, and it weighs only 23 pounds. This makes it easy to store back to its place when winter comes and the product is out of use. The weatherproof construction ensures that it won’t be damaged even if it mows under conditions of rain or high humidity. It comes with 330 feet of perimeter wire, a perimeter switch for separated zones, and a pack of 50 pegs. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with replacement blades, meaning that you have to purchase them separately when the original blades wear off. Another feature that it lacks is the fact that it doesn’t come with a remote control, but this isn’t such a bad thing because it’s smartphone compatible, already allowing remote control over smart devices.

Safety

Once the unit encounters an obstacle, the blades automatically stop and the robot changes its direction. Another important safety feature of the mower is the fact that it ensures the small ones won’t be able to use it. The Child Lock feature is the one that prevents this from happening, being ideal for those who want to make sure that their children won’t be put in any danger because of the robot. Also, as mentioned earlier, it features anti-theft protection due to the fact that it can be operated only by inserting a PIN code.

Maintenance

This battery-powered robot lawn mower offers a generous operating time of 60 to 73 minutes, and it takes only 60 to 90 minutes for it to completely recharge. It comes ready to use, so you won’t have to do much in order to start operating it. The blades need to be replaced only once every 6-9 months, and they’re fairly easy to replace as well, not requiring the use of any tools. All in all, this model is a dream come true for anyone who wants to enjoy having a perfectly mowed lawn without lifting a finger to mow it.

Warranty and support

The product is backed up by a standard 1-year warranty by the manufacturer. During this period of time, any defects that appear will be fixed without charging you a cent for the procedure. The user manual that the unit comes with makes it very easy to use, every aspect of operating it being explained in detail. Of course, in case you have any questions regarding the operation of the robot, you can contact customer support to receive the answers that you’re looking for.
