- Apr 3, 2008I've found that you can only use Consumer Reports as source of information
when making a purchase, but not the only source. I still find their reviews
helpful, but they do miss the boat sometimes.
As far as what supervise means. I think that they made a proper assumption.
If there's potential danger, looking outside every so often won't do much.
It takes only a second for a kid to run into your yard. All Consumer
Reports did was report what the instructions say.
I personally base my supervision of the RoboMower based on what's going on
outside at the time. If there are a lot of kids around, I tend to be outside
with it doing other things, like working on the garden, edging, etc.

Once again Consumer Reports missed the point; that's why I no longer
Supervise doesn't mean that you have to sit there for four hours and
do nothing else! You need to be aware of what's going on, look
outside every so often, etc.
I use forums like this one to check on how a product is satisfying
consumers. I find the real world experiences of hundreds of users
much more valuable than a few lab rats at CR.
Long Live Robomower!
