The Worx WR153 Landroid Robotic Mower is a powerful device from the Chinese-based manufacturing brand. It’s suitable for lawns as big as half an acre and unlike some of the best robot lawn mowers (opens in new tab), it is fitted with GPS too.
One great feature about buying your robotic lawn mower from Worx is the Power Share function. This means if you have any other cordless power tools from Worx, you’ll be able to share their batteries. It’s a handy element if you’ve bought from the brand before.
With Worx, you only pay for what you need. Each of its robotic lawn mowers is fully customizable so you can add on features you want and take off features you don’t need.
Worx WR153 Landroid: Features
One of the top features of this robotic lawn mower is its Cut-to-Edge technology. This piece of tech solves the problem of border management. It uses an off-centered blade to provide a clean cut with a narrow distance to a boundary wall. This helps to minimize the amount and frequency of manual trimming.
Plus, just like its Worx WR140 Landroid M 20V (opens in new tab) counterpart, this model has the same AIA technology. This intelligent navigation technology enables the robotic lawn mower to mow narrow corridors of the lawn without the need for any extra guiding wire using a zig-zag motion.
WiFi connectivity, rain sensors, and voice control are other features of the Worx WR153 Landroid. Its auto-scheduling tool is a bonus and this works by recommending mowing times based on how large your lawn is and what condition it’s in.
Worx also has its own Landroid app. This gives you all the key information at your fingertips.
Worx WR153 Landroid: Design
The Worx WR153 Landroid model is quite a heavy machine, weighing in at 49.8 pounds.
Just like all other Worx robotic lawn mowers, it is in keeping with the orange and black coloring with two large wheels at the back and an unmissable stop button on its base. By way of design, this robotic lawn mower works through a series of boundary wires which must be placed 10-26cm away from the edge. The boundary wire is included with the mower when you purchase it.
However, a stylish difference with Worx models is its parking lot – or charging base. The Worx Landroid robotic lawn mowers come with a black perforated grid which allows grass to grow through it so it almost blends in with the environment, rather than sticking out.
Worx WR153 Landroid: Performance
This model can handle slopes up to 20 degrees which isn’t as impressive as some of the other models we’ve reviewed such as the Husqvarna Automower 315X (opens in new tab). Its three pivoting razor blades have an adjustable cutting height of 1.5 to 4-inches, and it has a maximum cutting width of 9-inches. The large device can handle gardens up to half an acre, and thanks to its Smart Auto scheduling, the brand claims its machines are more agile than other robot mowers.
Plus, trickier areas and narrow pathways are no problem for this Worx model. Its
AIA intelligent navigation technology means the mower can reach any zone with a 60cm minimum width.
Worx WR153 Landroid: User reviews
The Worx WR153 Landroid averaged a score of four out of five stars on Amazon.
Users praised how well the Worx WR153 could cope with tight spaces and narrow areas of their garden. Some also mentioned how they liked the safety features - especially those with young children.
Some users commented on how slowly the mower works and that the app is a little ‘clunky’ to use. Other comments include how you’ll still need to use a strimmer around the edges of your lawn as this mower won’t get right up to the borders.
Should you buy the Worx WR153 Landroid robot mower?
If you’ve got a large lawn that has some narrow passageways, this is the best lawn mower for you. It’s a bit more expensive than some of the other models we’ve reviewed, due to its larger capacity and the fact that it comes with GPS. It’s great that you can tailor this product to your lawn. So whether you need GPS or a radio link, you only ever pay for what you need.
