How Does a Robomow® Lawnmower Work?
A fully automatic mower for the home owner!
Follow the easy lawn mower set up instructions below and let Robomow® do the work for you - lawn care made easy!
1. Peg wire around the edge of the lawn
Robomow® mowers require a one-time, simple set-up, which can be easily done by anyone. A wire is laid around the outer edges of the lawn, and attached to the surface of the lawn with pegs every few feet. The wire and pegs are supplied with the Robomow®. The wire is connected to the Base Station or to a small battery powered current source called Perimeter Switch (supplied in the box of models that do not have a Base Station). Typically the wire will be covered by grass and become unnoticeable in a matter of 2-3 weeks. Robomow®recognizes the wire using a special sensor, and makes sure it always stays inside the designated area. Find out more about perimeter wires, peg packs and other lawnmower accessories.
2. Ready to go
Robomow® is an innovative robotic mower that will automatically depart at the days and times scheduled and automatically return to the Base Station to recharge and get ready for the next scheduled operation. The weekly program can be re-set at any time, if and when required. Our lawn mowers will mow the lawn several times from side to side to ensure that the entire yard is covered and the grass is cut from several angles.
3. It mows. You don't!
How does Robomow® cut the grass?
It features a battery powered, powerful cutting system equivalent to a 5.5 HP petrol mower. Robomow® is a dedicated mulching mower that mulches better than a traditional mower. Grass is cut into very small clippings that are buried in the roots of the lawn, where they decompose and act like a natural fertilizer. This results in a healthier and better-looking lawn, and eliminates the need to collect and remove the clippings.
