      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.

      Thanks

      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

            If you'd ask me, I'll say that since smaller clippings
            are small, they can fall directly into the
            soil....where as bigger clippings may rest closer to
            the surface. Anyone else can ring in on this?

              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
