Technological Advancements & The Progression of the Lawnmower

In the last decade, countless innovations that improve our daily lives (most of the time) continue to reach consumers.

Robotic Robotic Lawnmower

In recent years alone, we’ve witnessed the evolution of 3D printing, seen high-powered drones introduced into the market and had our first peak at virtual reality headsets, which offer an interactive and fully immersive experience. An area that has seen a huge growth in innovation is one we’re no stranger to, Autonomous Robotics.

The word ‘Robotics’ sounds futuristic, however, it’s an area we know extremely well and specialise in at Flymo - the robotic lawnmower is one of our leading products.

Flymo's Robotic Lawnmower

Robotic lawnmowers, unlike self-driving cars, are here and available on the market. The Flymo Robotic Lawnmower 1200R is capable of cutting lawns whilst you sleep, with its almost silent operation. Something gardeners could only once dream of is now a reality, and this year robotic lawnmowers have grown significantly in popularity.

Flymo’s 1200R is the perfect example of what happens when want meets technology. Automatically cutting the lawn, Flymo’s 1200R mows independently, without having to collect the grass and returns to its charging station when in need of power. For busy people it can be a life-changing tool to have around meaning you never have to cut the lawn again. No longer do you need to empty your mowers grass box as the 1200R cuts the grass into tiny clippings and sends them back into the lawn to act as a natural fertilizer. Your lawn is given a carpet-like finish and you have more time to do the things you enjoy.

Similarly for the elderly, this is a product that means their garden is tended to safely and stops them from having to use a lawnmower. The Flymo 1200R works by installing a boundary wire around the perimeter of the garden, which lets the robotic mower know where to cut. All gardeners need to do is programme the device, and off it goes, meaning the days of pacing your garden tirelessly are gone.

Whilst 3D printers and self-driving cars may be inventions of the future, the Flymo Robotic Lawnmower 1200R is here now, ready to make your life that little bit easier.


Innovative Hover Mowers

Not only do we have our very own robot at Flymo but we also have products which are technologically innovative. The Flymo UltraGlide for example is our most advanced hover mower which has two chambers, a cutting chamber and a hover chamber. This ensures that grass is cut neatly and that the mower hovers with ease. The UltraGlide’s DuoTech system also allows users to mow over the edges of their lawn without losing the cushion of air required for the hover mower to operate – unlike all other traditional hover mowers.


Battery Technology

The benefits of battery products cannot be ignored, in such a growing market and technological age. Battery technology means light-weight, flexible, environmentally-friendly garden power tools. With Flymo you can purchase a battery hedge trimmer and a grass trimmer of the same voltage and make use of an interchangeable battery. Battery products are much quieter, ergonomically friendly and cordless, meaning the freedom to roam the garden is all yours.
