Lawn Mower Quiz Sweepstakes - Noise Level YouTube Survey

Welcome to our quiz about lawn robots! Today, we would like to talk to you about the volume of these practical helpers. Lawn robots are becoming increasingly popular, but many owners wonder how loud these devices can actually be and why some models are louder than others. In this blog post, you will learn everything you need to know about the legal regulations regarding the volume of lawn robots, why they can sometimes be loud, and how you can reduce the volume of your robot.

Legal regulations for lawn robots: Lawn robots are extremely convenient as they automate the tedious task of lawn care. However, there are legal regulations that govern the volume of these devices. According to the regulations, lawn robots must not exceed the specified noise limit of 59 decibels. This means that they can be operated on weekdays, which includes all days of the week except Sundays and public holidays, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. This regulation is intended to ensure that the neighborhood is not disturbed by excessive noise.

Why is my lawn robot so loud? You may have wondered why your lawn robot is sometimes louder than expected. Especially in taller grass, when the glide plate is almost stationary, a slight humming noise can occur. This humming noise is caused by the airflow through the three holes in the Automower glide plate. Particularly when the glide plate is in slightly taller grass or does not reach the speed of the blade disc, the humming can become slightly louder. So, it is entirely normal for lawn robots to vary in volume depending on the environment and the condition of the grass.

How can you reduce the volume of a lawn robot? If you want to reduce the volume of your lawn robot, there are several measures you can take. Here are a few tips:

  1. Maintenance and care: Ensure that your lawn robot is regularly maintained. Clean the blades and the robot itself to ensure optimal performance. A well-maintained lawn robot may operate quieter.

  2. Increase cutting height: By raising the cutting height of your lawn robot, it will generate less noise. This is because it will experience less resistance when cutting the grass and, therefore, be less strained.

  3. Adjust the schedule: If the volume of your lawn robot is a concern, you can adjust its schedule to limit its operation to times that are less disruptive to your neighbors. However, make sure to comply with the legal regulations regarding operating hours.

  4. Noise insulation: You can try to reduce the noise level of your lawn robot by placing it in a sound-dampened area or installing noise insulation around the mowing area. There are special products available on the market that can help minimize the noise level.

My name is Sigmar Krause from Gartenprofi in Bestensee, and today we are going to talk about 210 lawn robots. I want to start the biggest test ever conducted, with your help. You can find out how to participate at the end of the video. And by the way, I'm also giving away five attractive prizes.


I have conducted the first test, comparing the volume levels of 210 lawn robots according to the manufacturers' specifications. The two test losers will be revealed at the end of the video. Now, you might wonder why I'm doing this when there are already tests conducted every year. Well, my motto is: don't trust a test that I have faked myself. Additionally, in various forums like Facebook, you can find people saying, "I'm new here and want to buy a lawn robot. In the best case, include the square meters and a picture of your garden, and then you'll receive numerous suggestions like, "Take this one, take that one. I have one myself, and I'm completely satisfied. I've had it for three days, and it's absolutely great." But there is no explanation as to why.


I have been providing advice in the Berlin-Brandenburg region about lawn robots for over nine years, and since I don't sell or trade them myself, I can provide relatively independent reports. I would like to share this experience with the new lawn robot owners with your help. Trust me, analyzing 210 lawn robots and listing their pros and cons can only be done with your help. That's why there are small prizes involved, but they should only serve as an incentive. Please leave a subscription and write in the comment section, "I'm in," along with your test suggestions, such as price, durability, or anything that comes to mind.


I have already created an Excel spreadsheet for the existing 210 robots, with the decibel levels listed in the first column. And for the drawing, please use the following email address: [email protected], and include your YouTube name. I am aware that this will take quite some time, but in the end, we will have a successful result, and I'm especially excited to have initiated the largest test for lawn robot fans. Everyone will then receive the list and can decide which robot suits them best.


So, let's get started. Leave a subscription, write, and send me an email. As promised, let's now talk about the two test losers: the Wolf Robo Scooter 500 with 77 decibels and the Robomow RM510 White, also with 77 decibels. Realistically, I estimate that we will be finished at the end of the season, approximately in half a year, and then we can conduct the corresponding drawing. Well, I'll say goodbye for now, and we'll see each other again with fantastic results.

The volume of lawn mowers can vary depending on the model, manufacturer, and condition of the mower. Most modern lawn mowers are designed to operate relatively quietly to minimize disturbances in the neighborhood. Most models operate within an acceptable range of noise level that is not particularly bothersome for most people.

The volume of a lawn mower is measured in decibels (dB). Some manufacturers provide the decibel level in their product specifications to give customers an idea of the mower's noise level. However, the indicated decibel values may vary from the actual volume as it depends on various factors, such as the distance of the measuring device from the lawn mower.

On average, most lawn mowers operate within a noise level range of about 55 to 65 decibels. This is comparable to conversations in a quiet environment or the sound of a refrigerator. It is important to note that perceived volume is subjective and can vary from person to person.

Some lawn mowers are specifically designed to be particularly quiet. These models use quieter motors, improved noise insulation technologies, and other measures to reduce the noise level. If the volume of your lawn mower is important to you, it is worth looking for models that are advertised as quiet or low-noise.

It is also important to note that the volume of a lawn mower can be influenced by various factors. For example, the condition of the lawn can play a role. If the mower operates on uneven terrain or works on tall grass, it can result in increased noise. A well-maintained lawn with uniform grass height can help the mower operate more quietly.

In addition to technical aspects, there are also legal regulations regarding the operating times of lawn mowers. As mentioned earlier, lawn mowers are often only allowed to be operated during specific times of the day to respect the quiet hours of the neighborhood. The exact regulations can vary depending on the country or region, so it is important to familiarize yourself with local laws and regulations.

Overall, most lawn mowers are designed to operate at an acceptable volume level to minimize disturbances. However, it is important to consider individual preferences and the environment. If volume is a particular concern for you, consider models with lower decibel values and, if necessary, take additional measures to further reduce noise levels.

Choose a quiet model: When selecting a lawn mower, pay attention to the information regarding volume. Manufacturers often provide decibel values in their product descriptions. Specifically look for models advertised as quiet or low-noise.

Choose the right operating time: In most regions, lawn mowers are only allowed to be operated during certain times of the day to avoid disturbing neighbors during nighttime hours. Make sure to use the lawn mower within the permitted operating times.

Maintenance and care: A well-maintained lawn mower typically operates more quietly. Keep the mower clean and regularly check the condition of the blades and other moving parts. A poorly maintained machine may be louder and cause unnecessary noise.

Placement and installation: Position the lawn mower in a way that minimizes outward noise. Make sure the mower does not drive directly along walls or fences as this can result in increased sound transmission. Place the charging station in a location that minimizes the noise level.

Inform your neighbors: Inform your neighbors about the use of a lawn mower, especially if you plan to operate it outside of normal operating hours. Open communication demonstrates consideration and allows you to address any concerns early on.

Soundproofing: There are various ways to further reduce the noise level of a lawn mower. For example, you can place sound barriers or fences around the mower's working area to absorb sound. Special soundproof covers for the lawn mower can also be used.

Choose alternative operating times: If allowed and without causing disturbance to the neighborhood, you can operate the lawn mower during times when fewer people are nearby. For example,

early morning or late evening when most people are still sleeping or not in the garden.

These tips are intended to help minimize noise pollution from a lawn mower and make neighborhood living more enjoyable. However, it is important to comply with local laws and regulations and consider the individual needs and sensitivities of the neighborhood.
