The Mammotion LUBA AWD robotic lawn mower is now available from the company’s online store and Amazon storefront. Three models are available, covering lawn sizes from 1,000 m² (0.25 acres) to 5,000 m² (~1.25 acres). The gadget uses an RTK-GNSS system rather than a boundary wire to navigate your garden, and you can control the device via an app.
Mammotion is now selling its LUBA smart robot lawn mower at its online stores and on Amazon in the UK and Germany. This launch follows a successful Kickstarter campaign which received nearly 2,500 backers, raising over HK$26.5 million (~US$3.4 million). Three models are available: the LUBA AWD 100, LUBA AWD 3000 and LUBA AWD 5000.
As you might expect, the numbers refer to the recommended lawn size for each model, 1,000 m² (0.25 acres), 3,000 m² (0.75 acres) and 5,000 m² (~1.25 acres). Rather than a traditional perimeter wire, the lawn mower uses RTK-GNSS and various sensors to navigate your garden. The range-topping LUBA AWD 5000 robot can tackle a 75% (37°) slope with obstacle avoidance technology and the ability to recharge as necessary automatically. You can control the all-wheel drive gadget through the accompanying app, adjusting settings such as a mowing schedule or the cutting height, ranging from 30 to 70 mm (~1.18 to 2.76-in).
You can buy the Mammotion LUBA AWD 1000, 3000 and 5000 for £1,999/€1,999, £2,499/€2,499 and £2,899/€2,899. The company is currently offering 1% cashback alongside a free RTK Reference Station Power Supply Adapter and 10 m (~32.8 ft) extension cable with purchases. It is unclear how long this deal will last, or if the product will be sold in other markets.
