      All the adults here know this. The science project is like your taxes you
      always know the answer before you get started. So you need some good looking
      grass and some not so good looking grass. The good looking will represent
      the grass that you fed super chopped up clippings. The not so good will be
      the one you fed the big half inch clippings. Don't get too wrapped up in all
      the details now because everyone comes up with all this the night before the
      project's due.

        Yes,

        If fact there is. Contact me separately with an email. From what I
        understand, there is plenty of official documentation proving this which is also
        supported by well known "Turf Care Specialists" and related organizations.

        Hi
        Looking for some cool ideas for Science Fair Project (HS level).

        I'm thinking about comparing the Robomower with traditional push
        mowers. From what I know, the robomower supposely provides healthier
        lawn due to the fact that it makes much smaller clippings with it's
        triple blades.
        Anyone has any idea how I could prove it?

        btw I have a RL550 here

        Thanks

          Hi
          Thanks everyone for the reply

          Well I'm still trying to figure out how I can proof that smaller
          clippings are healthier for the lawn (common sense?) since this is
          more a science project, not a product comparison test between
          robomower and traditional mover.

          @Tyler
          Somehow I can only see half of your e-mail address in your
          signature. Could you please send me a link to those documents?
          My e-mail address is thakiller35@...

          Thanks

              are small, they can fall directly into the

                rest on the surface blocking light, creating a bed for fungus, etc.

                Look, he has a science project, not a term paper. He is just going
                to have to plant some grass and show the results even if the result
                is seemingly obvious.

                  Hi, about your project;

                  If you were to compare the RL1000 mower or one of the other fully
                  autonomous mowers like the Automower, Ambrogio or Bigmow, the
                  biggest benefit would be that these mowers cut the grass once or
                  twice per day or every other day.

                  The benefit is when cutting grass with a conventional mower you are
                  typically only going to do it once per 5-7 days. When waiting 5-7
                  days between cuttings you have allowed the grass 'stalk' to grow
                  longer than if you cut it more frequently. Your goal is to cut
                  the 'blade' portion of the grass, when you allow the grass to grow
                  for a many days between cuttings you are now cutting into the
                  round 'stalk' portion of the grass. The 'blade' cuts easier because
                  it is flat and thin, the stalk cuts more difficult and does not cut
                  as clean and tends to tear and splinter at the end versus a clean
                  cut. These stray ends of the grass 'stalk' look brown and not green.

                  This explains why after cutting the grass with a standard mower
                  after several days, when you look at the freshly cut grass it looks
                  greenish brown, not deep green. After a day or two the grasses
                  color returns to a green without the brown.

                  Cutting less of the grass blades more often is also less shocking to
                  the grass plant, this is one of the biggest advantages to the above
                  mentioned robotic mowers. The other big advantage is the small
                  pieces of grass getting back to the base of the grass plant and
                  decomposing faster and returning the nutrients back into the ground.

                  The fully autonomous mowers are by design 'mulchers' due to the size
                  of the grass blades left after the cut, for conventional mowers to
                  be deemed mulchers they require specially designed aerodynamic decks
                  and blades to keep the longer pieces of grass suspended under the
                  deck and above the blade, the more times the long grass can be
                  tossed up by the air currents the more times it gets cut by the
                  spinning blade. This, in turn makes the grass pieces smaller and
                  then can return them to the base of the grass plant.....mulch.

                  Regards,

                  Chris
