Robomow RX12 Robotic Lawn Mower comes with a very distinct use case. It is designed for lawns that are less than 2000 sq.ft in size. Most of the lawn mowers out in the industry are designed for areas of 1/4 acre and above. But Robomow RX12 is designed for miniature lawns that take up less than 1/20th of an acre.
Robomow RX12 is one of the most affordable and best Robotic Lawn Mowers out in the market. Since using a manual robotic lawn mower to mow a small lawn is impractical, this cute robotic lawn mower is the best way to trim your lawn.
