TRACKING along a small patch of grass all of its own accord was one of the eye-catchers at the Farming Small Areas Expo last week.
The Ambrogio L50 - claimed by its manufacturers to be the world's first robotic mower with grass sensors - garnered a lot of attention at the event which attracted 13,500 to Clarendon in Sydney's Hawkesbury region on Friday and Saturday.
Autoearth owner, Greg Adams, Wagga Wagga, who sells the machines in Australia, said it had only been on the market here three weeks.
"This new model is the only remote mower in the world that doesn't need a perimeter fence," he said.
Instead it had six grass censors to detect grassed and non-grassed areas so no perimeter wire was required as was the case with other robotic mowers.
"You can come home from work at night and put it out and it will work away cutting the grass down slowly."
He said while you wouldn't set the mower on foot-high grass, it was good for keeping lawns looking tidy as it took four or five millimetres off the lawn each time it mowed.
"It's quiet operation makes it perfect for running at night," he said.
