LawnBott SpyderEVO LB1500 Review
he SpyderEVO is LawnBott’s newest entry-level robotic lawn mower in 2012. The LB1500 is a very basic but effective robotic lawn mower. Like the original Spyder, there is no LCD screen, few settings and no “fancy” bells and whistles. It just mows. If you have been interested the LB1200 Spyder, but your lawn is not quite right for it — the LB1500 SpyderEVO could be the lowest priced solution within the LawnBott line.
- Stake the included perimeter wire around the borders of your yard, home and any areas you don’t want to cut; flower gardens, landscaped areas, swimming pool, etc. using the included pegs. (When you order from LawnBotts.com, we will map exactly where to place your perimeter wire free of charge. Click here to get your FREE LawnBott installation plan.)
- Place the mower inside your mowing area then turn it on.
- Press the start button.
The LawnBott SpyderEVO will mow your lawn until the battery is low or it has completed the area. From there, you pick it up and recharge it using the included cable.
If you prefer more automation, an optional docking station can be purchased as an accessory.
(or up to 10,000 sq. ft. of actual lawn)
The LawnBott LB1500 is lithium battery powered. This robotic electric lawn mower weighs 25 pounds and can mow slopes up to 25 degrees. This LawnBott can mow for about 3.5 hours per charge, and recharges in about 3 hours. With the optional dock, SpyderEVO can automatically undock, mow your lawn then and re-dock - 7 days a week.
The LawnBott SpyderEVO LB1500 is a 4 x 4 robotic lawn mower. It can mow up to 25-degree slopes.
Bump sensors are activated when the LawnBott gently encounters an object such as a tree, wall, or any object over 4.5 inches high. This feature protects the mower as well as objects that may be on the lawn.
Here are the advantages of lithium batteries:
Lithium batteries have a life span about 2 - 3 times longer than lead acid batteries
- Lithium battery increases the slope/hill capability to about 25 degrees due to lighter weight
- Lithium batteries have no memory
- Lithium batteries run longer and recharge quickly
Brand Pet Fence
The LawnBott LB1500 SpyderEVO has been tested by the manufacture to work with the Invisible Fence Brand dog fence.
The LawnBott are the only robotic lawn mowers that have been accepted by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The LawnBott LB1500 SpyderEVO robotic lawn mower will stop the blade when one of the handles is touched. When both handles are touched, the wheels will stop. When the mower is put down again, it will automatically restart mowing.
The LawnBott SpyderEVO LB1500 robotic lawn mower can barely be heard when standing 15 feet directly from it while it is mowing! Night time mowing is a nice bonus for robotic lawn mowers.
The LawnBott SpyderEVO's firmware is updatable free of charge through the internet. You receive a free USB upgrade cable (LawnBotts.com exclusive) when you purchase a LawnBott from us.
To conserve battery power, the LB1500 SpyderEVO sends just the right amount of current to the blade motor. On high grass, it sends a high current which speeds up the blade. On lower grass, it slows down. This extends the life of the batteries and the mowing motors.
