Robotic Lawnmower Recalled

Comments Off

A robotic lawn mower that will cut grass by itself has been recalled after testing showed it to be dangerous.  Consumer Reports tested the Lawnbott Evolution and found that a person could be cut due to spacing in the safety shield.  The recalled lawn mower was distributed by Koyodo America.

During a demonstration, Peter Sawchuk, of Consumer Reports, lifted the unit up, and the blade kept spinning.

“You can easily reach in and get a nasty injury. If you lift it up further, the blade will stop, but it takes several seconds,” Sawchuk said.

There has been one report of injury to a person foot from the lawn mower.  The model numbers for the recalled lawn mower are LB2000, LB2100, LB3000, and LB3200.  You may contact the company at (877) 465-9636  for more information.
