Bosch Indego XS 300 Robotic Lawnmower Review


Rating: 3.3 out of 5 (from 68 reviews)

The Bosch Indego XS 300 Robotic Lawnmower offers systematic and efficient lawn care with its advanced LogiCut technology, which maps your lawn and mows in parallel lines, ensuring quicker completion and freeing up your lawn sooner. Ideal for navigating narrow passages, it can manage corridors as small as 75 cm wide without needing a guidance wire.

The AUTO Calendar Function automatically calculates a tailored mowing schedule, optimised for the size of your lawn. Additionally, the MultiArea function enables the Indego XS 300 to mow up to three separate lawn areas, covering a combined total of 300 m².

Included in the package are the Indego XS 300, a docking station with fixing screws, a 7 m power supply unit, 100 m perimeter wire, wire connectors, 140 fixing pegs, and carton packaging. This comprehensive set ensures you have everything needed for efficient and hassle-free lawn maintenance.

What users think:

The Bosch Indego XS 300 Robotic Lawnmower has received mixed reviews from users.

One user switched from a Flymo 1200R to the Indego XS 300 and has been very pleased with the performance and appreciated the efficient mapping and mowing sequence, noting that it avoids the redundancy of covering the same area multiple times. This systematic approach results in a well-manicured lawn and efficient operation, making it a significant improvement over their old mower. Another user praised the Indego XS 300 for its ease of setup and versatility.

However, another review highlights some drawbacks, particularly with Bosch's claim that the mower cuts in straight lines. The user observed that, like many robotic mowers, it lacks navigation sensors and relies on the boundary wire to navigate. The mower can easily be knocked off course by obstacles, causing it to miss areas of the lawn. Additionally, damp grass tends to get stuck in the front wheels, further complicating the mowing process.

In summary, the Bosch Indego XS 300 Robotic Lawnmower offers an efficient mowing system with its mapping technology, but it may encounter navigation issues and struggles with wet conditions.

Direct quotes from owners:

I got one of these to replace my old Flymo 1200R. I nearly didn’t as the reviews weren’t great. However so far, over the last three weeks this mower has been great. It maps your garden and actually mows it in a sequence rather than randomly going off in all directions. This means it is much more efficient. It isn’t going over the same areas multiple times and more importantly it knows when it has finished!...I’m very pleased with it. It does a much better job than my old Flymo (even though I was relatively happy with that).


Bosch claim it will cut in lines in some sort of controlled fashion. However.... Like 90% of robot mowers they are effectively dumb and don't have any navigation type sensors (unlike a robot vacuum) mowers pretty much bounce off the boundary wire in random directions until the lawn is cut. Bosch have tried to take this a step further by saying it will mow in straight lines based on the boundary wire, but the mower has no way to know it's going straight (it just assumes it is), so when a wet leaf or snails slime trail knocks it off course it has no idea, so just keeps cutting the same grass. Whilst the intention is sound it's massively problematic in real life. Damp grass for example gets stuck in the front wheels, pulling it off course, so then it's not cut where it thought it had, says lawn finished with chunks left untouched.


I don’t normally leave reviews but this indigo m+700 robot mower is great. Set up first time with guide wires and also set up 2 more zones so I can pick it up and use it in other places. Love it so much I’ve just purchased a second for the back garden.

Price: £678.00
