The WR140 Landroid represents an evolution in the Worx lineup of electric lawn care tools. This state-of-the-art robotic lawn mower has all the innovations you want in an automated lawn care system. As an added bonus the dual 20 Volt batteries of the Landroid electric motor are also compatible with other 20 Volt battery-powered tools in their lineup. This is a great way to save a little money if you are a Worx fan and you want to swap batteries in or out. It’s also something you rarely see in competitor robotic lawn mowers.
On a single charge, the onboard batteries can cut up to a quarter acre. At that point, the Worx WR140 Landroid M will return itself to the safety of the protected charging point. There’s also a built-in rain sensor that will trigger the robotic mower to take safety.
Though these aren’t the only special features of the Worx WR140 Landroid M. There is an integrated WiFi control app that can link the Worx WR140 Landroid M to your smartphone or other wireless devices. It also uses patented AIA technology to carefully navigate the defined perimeter of your lawn, as well as deftly negotiating narrow passages. The wheels and drive train system can handle up to a 20-degree slope while still keeping the cutting blades engaged.
Under the cutting deck, you will find three cutting blades. Each is 7-inches long and their patterns overlap to leave no unharvested grass clippings behind. The Worx WR140 Landroid M also has bump sensors to keep it from accidentally running over unprogrammed obstacles.

The 20 Volt electric battery that powers the Worx WR140 Landroid M gives it enough range to cut up to a quarter acre on a single charge. The AIA onboard software also means it has the ability to negotiate narrow areas with ease. There’s also enough traction and torque for the Worx WR140 Landroid M to climb up a 20-degree incline, while still harvesting grass with the three 7-inch blades.
Ease Of Use
Like a lot of other robotic lawn mowers, the Worx WR140 Landroid M needs some advanced setup. You need to layout the perimeter wire and dial in other important parameters via the wireless WiFi app.
Once you get all this taken care of, the Worx WR140 Landroid M is very easy to use. The wireless app lets you monitor and make changes as needed. The bump sensor helps it navigate obstacles, and it even updates its own internal software. You don’t even have to worry about rain damaging this robotic lawn mower, as the onboard rain sensor automatically returns it to the safety of the charging station.
The patented AIA technology makes it easy for the Worx WR140 Landroid M to navigate narrow passages and other obstacles in your lawn. This along with the bump safety sensor makes the Worx WR140 Landroid M one of the best robotic lawn mower for a yard with a lot of trees and complicated landscaping features.
The WiFi control app is also a nice touch. It’s easy to install and very intuitive to use, which isn’t necessarily something you can say about a lot of the competitors. It’s a definite statement about Worx’s brand reputation for developing well-engineered electric tools.
Cut Quality & Options
The Worx WR140 Landroid M can handle up to a quarter of an acre on a single charge. Which is just about perfect for a small to medium suburban lawn. The ability to tackle a slope of up to 20-degrees is also handy for slightly hilly yards.
If you have a large lawn that is more than a quarter acre, the Worx WR140 Landroid M can still handle it. Though it might take more than one day to fully manicure a lawn over an acre, or one with a lot of complex landscaping mixed into gentle hills.
Once it is properly set up the Worx WR140 Landroid M requires very little maintenance. True you will occasionally need to replace the cutting blades, but this is something that comes up with pretty much all robotic lawn mowers. The replacement blades are very inexpensive and you should be able to replace them in a matter of minutes with tools that you already have in your home toolbox.
The Worx WR140 Landroid M was engineered with safety in mind. Once the perimeter wire is installed it will not wander beyond it. If it is ever accidentally turned over or bumps into something the cutting blades automatically disengage. The bump sensor will then divert it away from the obstacle.
Even the patented AIA technology makes it easy for the Worx WR140 Landroid M to navigate tight areas and complex obstacles. It’s one of the best robotic lawn mowers for a small lawn with several trees and complicated landscaping features.
The Worx WR140 Landroid M is very cost-effective in a variety of ways. Right off the bat, fans of the Worx lineup of battery-powered tools will appreciate the fact that the 20 Volt lithium-ion batteries are fully compatible with other 20 Volt tools and appliances in their line. This means you can repurpose batteries from something like a string trimmer or a saw to maximize the run time of the Worx WR140 Landroid M. It is especially handy if you have a large lawn.
The rain sensor and other safety features are also a nice touch for protecting your investment as well as the things and people who tread on your lawn when the Worx WR140 Landroid M is actively mowing the grass.
The cost to mow a quarter of an acre is also going to be a fraction of what it would cost you to do the same amount of work with an old-fashioned gasoline push lawn mower.
