And I thought I was lazy...

What is it?
Why, it's the Robomow RL500!

Our neighbor, Bob (aka Helmetman), doesn't like to do yard work, so he lets this contraption mow his lawn for him. Usually he lets it loose in the middle of the night, so we don't often see it in action. Today was an exception, though, and I managed to record it right before it finished.

(The RL500 has been discontinued. You'll have to get the RL850.)

actually, unknown to most, this contraption actually drops shredded debris from murdered people / pets discretely while looking like it's mowing.

Well, yeah, that's true, but only when it's out at 3 AM. Today it was actually mowing.
(Helmetman's taking a vacation from serial killing this summer.)

I bet that's what keeps digging all those tunnels for illegal immigrants. You better check the dirt to see if there are multiple kinds of dirt mixed in.

WHOA! you're right! there was BLACK dirt on the brown dirt!! SOMEONE CALL INS!

LOL -- One piece of advice for you, Beth... Don't marry an engineer.

BTW, those things are really popular for robot bases :D

Roozer said...

LOL -- fitting music :D Thanks! I've actually never seen one in action.

Sure looks like more trouble than it's worth. :D

$2k to have something mow your lawn for you?

Yeah, guaranteed it's more trouble than it's worth. It's not even as good as hiring the neighbor kid, because you can yell at your robot, but since when do they listen?

Deaf Beth said...

It's not more trouble than it's worth; it's more money than it's worth.

(You can take a sledge hammer to your robomow when it mows crooked, but you can't murder the neighbor kid without going to jail.)

Roozer said...

Good point :D

I wonder if they actually work? I read they just kind of "bounce" around the lawn and stop when there's a high probability they got most everything.

Yup, they don't mow straight at all, but they are so light that the don't leave lines, so unless you watch it mow you can't really tell.

if it worked it would be a good way to mow someones lawn when there not home... (so they pay you for you for the laybor).. but they might wonder about the no lines?
