Robomower 850 Update

Well, at least Probotics in Glenside, PA is really interested in helping their customers. They offer a shipping box to keep the ship-size from going over into the oversized rates, and gave me a very reasonable quote on the broken item. It's beyond my ability to repair, so they'll be the ones to fix it.

If their service is this good, when I upgrade (probably to a Lawnbott Evolution eventually) it'll be their sale.

Robomower 850 Issues

I have a three year old Robomower 850 (one of those robotic lawnmowers) that has just stripped its gears. I did manage to replace that, but of course now the system won't power up.

Three years for something to break is not a good average. I'm now mowing the lawn with a reel mower.
