Best Alternatives to the Worx Landroid S
As impressed as we are with this particular Worx robot mower, we’re open-minded to the possibility that it isn’t the best. That’s why we dove even deeper and performed additional research on several other units.
Read on below to discover our top two picks for alternatives to the Worx Landroid S.
The Gardena 15002-41 is a robotic mower alternative that can mow yards of up to 5400 sq ft, and just so happens to give the Worx Landroid S a run for its money. But for or this robotic mower to function you’ll need to download the Gardena Bluetooth app on your mobile device. The app is used for the settings and operations of the mower even though the machine can be operated through a control panel on the mower itself.
That said, the Gardena Robotic Mower is touted as one of the best in the business. One drawback that we noticed during our research, however, is that it navigates via guide cables (which just isn’t as impressive as the Work Robotic Mowers GPS navigation system).
The Gardena Robotic Mower features a Bluetooth connection, you can easily control your Gardena by using your smartphone and downloading the Gardena Bluetooth app on your mobile. It also has guide cables that help it navigate reliably in the lawn areas and back to the charging stations with no issues. Even more, this robot mower has inbuilt sensors that ensure the mower blades stop immediately when picked up.

Husqvarna’s 115H Robotic Lawn Mower is a smart device that’s been making waves in the home and gardening community lately. It is supposed to be one of the best robotic mowers currently available for people with medium-sized yards.
This particular Husqvarna Automower can handle 0.4 acres in a single cutting. And, it can cut on an incline of 24-degrees, cutting your lawn sharply and quickly without missing a beat no matter how steep. If you have a larger than average garden that needs to be manicured, this robot could be your new best friend.
This Husqvarna Robotic Mower features a GPS navigator that makes it maneuver around narrow passages and complicated obstacles by itself. It also has lift and tilt sensors that prevent any collision and shutting down automatically if a child or animal comes close to it.
Further, the Husqvarna Automower also features an “ease” and “quick” cutting height adjustment from 2-inches to 3.6-inches, maintaining a smooth and carpetlike lawn with zero effort on your part. Being one of the best smart robotic mowers around, it also of course comes with WiFi connectivity.
