How do I change the Basic Settings for the RC model mower?

The Basic Settings are the most common menu options changed by users. Each of the Basic Settings has an icon on the mower, which is lit to indicate the selected menu option.

To change Basic Settings, press the Settings button to enter edit mode.

Every press of the Settings button will move between the following 4 menu options:

Plan mowing times for safety
Always make sure that the mower is set to work when the lawn is vacant. In addition, always set “mowing-free” times when people (especially children) or pets may be found in vicinity.

TIPS:

  • The mower will not operate during the Inactive Hours throughout all days of the week.
  • If too many days/hours have been deactivated relative to the zone area, the “E8” (Decrease Inactive Time) will be displayed – you need to decrease the amount of inactive time so that the mower will have enough time to mow your lawn.
  • To set the Inactive Hours to Off, set the same time for the start and the end (i.e.: 00:00 to 00:00).
