Yes, it is possible to install two robots on the same lawn.
Make sure that both the date/day and time are correct. Make sure also that the Inactive Day and Time are exactly as they were set up.
There are 3 basic types of lawns: Main Zone, Main + Sub-Zone, and Main + Separated Zone. (Some lawns are combinations of more than one type.) Main Zone: The “Main Zone Only” lawn consists of one whole area. It has no Sub-Zones and no Separated Zones. ⦁ The grass area is one continuous zone. ⦁ Make sure all areas of the lawn are wide enough for Robomow to navigate through. Main Zone + Sub-Zone: This type of lawn consists of more than one zone, and these zones are connected by a narrow pass. In this type of lawn, Robomow will be able to drive itself from one zone to the other in order to mow the whole area. ⦁ The grass area is one continuous zone. ⦁ Part of the lawn is separated from the Main Zone. ⦁ The Narrow Pass is wide enough for Robomow to drive through between these zones: 1.2 – 5 meters. ⦁ The Narrow Pass is firm, level, and smooth (not stony or sandy). For example: a grass area, sidewalk, or solid ground. Separated Zone: Separated Zone consists of two or more zones that are not connected. Robomow cannot drive between these zones. If one of the scenarios below exist in your lawn, then you have a Separated Zone: ⦁ Part of the lawn is separated by fences or other objects that prevent the mower from passing. ⦁ Part of the lawn is separated by a gravel path or similar material that may cause the mower to slip while driving through. ⦁ The Pass between zones is too narrow for Robomow to drive through: less than 1.2m in width. ⦁ The zones of the lawn are situated at a lower or higher level.
Some tips for handling Robomow during the winter include: ⦁ Always clean Robomow before putting it away for winter storage. ⦁ No winter storage is required for a Base Station. ⦁ Store the mower in a dry area, preferably at room temperature. ⦁ To allow better maintenance and keep Robomow in good condition, it is recommended to bring your Robomow to a certified Robomow dealer for service prior to winter storage. ⦁ Winter Service includes operations such as cleaning the mower parts and mowing deck, checking for wear of parts and replace if required (such as blade, drive wheels, and other moving parts), testing the mower functions and safety components, checking the battery, and uploading the latest software version, possibly including newly added features.
The Base Station is safe from rain and moisture; however, if there is expected to be a high amount of snowfall that can cover it, it’s recommended to disconnect the Base Station and store it in a dry protected location.
No. You should NEVER use a water hose or any type of liquid to clean the underside of the mower, as liquids can damage components. Use only a damp or wet cloth to wipe the surface clean after using.
We recommend replacing the blades at the start of each cutting season. It’s best not to sharpen the blades, as it may create unbalance.
It means that the auto program is in “Pause” mode, which means the robot will not depart from the Base Station automatically, and will only depart by pressing manually on the operation keypad.
Deactivate: You can deactivate the sound by pressing the ON/OFF button for 6 seconds until all the LEDs blink. Activate: You can activate the sound by pressing the ON/OFF button for 6 seconds until you hear a beep with an indication that the sound settings were changed.
In most cases, it will not be a Perimeter Wire that’s too long, but an invalid/poor wire connection in the Perimeter Wire, resulting from the use of a connector that’s not suitable for outdoor use. The connection, where the wire (copper) is exposed, will be oxidized and thus will have high resistance in the connection, which is equivalent to an installation of a long wire. In this case, you will have to locate the faulty/damaged connection, remove the damaged wire, and reconnect the cable with a suitable connector supplied from Robomow.”
This is a warning of a cut wire. In such cases there is no signal in the lawn.
It means that the robot has not returned to its Base Station after 4 hours. This behavior is relevant only if the robot departs from the Base Station and not manually from the middle of the lawn.
It means that the robot was manually dragged out from its Base Station in an unauthorized way.
This means that the Power box is set to Pause mode, and Robomow will stay at the Base Station, and will not start automatically from the Base Station. This is not a problem. You will just need to again press the mode of operation you want, and Robomow will start mowing.
Pop-up sprinklers that are below ground level are no problem because Robomow drives over them during the mowing. However, with pop-up sprinklers, you need to check that the parts are below the ground surface, so they will not be damaged by the blades. If the sprinklers are fixed within the lawn area, you need to remove them outside the lawn, or protect them using the perimeter wire so that the robot will not damage them.
Only relatively small lawns are covered in a single operation. Most lawns require more than a single operation to cover the entire area. The operation principle of Robomow is based on consecutive operations, which keep the lawn cut at all times, rather than mowing the lawn in a single operation and then letting the grass grow and cutting it again.
The battery is maintenance-free, but has a limited lifetime of 2-4 years. Battery life is dependent on the season length and how many hours Robomow is used. We therefore recommend changing the mowing frequency (Interval) when the growth rate of the grass is slower. This will help prolong the lifetime of the mower and the battery.
If the Perimeter Wire needs to be spliced, use the connectors supplied in the Robomow box. They are waterproof and give a reliable electrical connection. IMPORTANT! Before splicing the Perimeter Wire, disconnect the Power Box from the power outlet. ⦁ Strip 1 cm (0.5 inch) of each wire end together, and twist the stripped ends using pliers. ⦁ Insert the twisted wires into the splicing connector. ⦁ Screw the wire connector on the twisted wires. Make sure it is tightly secured. IMPORTANT! Neither twisted cables, nor a screw terminal insulated with insulation tape, are a satisfactory splice. Soil moisture will cause such conductors to oxidize and will later lead to a broken circuit.
The LED battery indicators are as follows: ⦁ Red is lit constantly – Charge the battery. ⦁ Green is blinking – Battery is charging. ⦁ Green is lit constantly – Battery is fully charged.
A Base Station is required for a Separated Zone that cannot be mowed in a single operation. Normally this is an area larger than 328 square feet for the C models, and larger than 650 square feet for the S models.
You can pause it by pressing the ON/OFF button for 3 seconds, until a red light is displayed.
C-Model: The Child Lock feature locks the buttons to prevent unintended operation, especially by children. If the Child Lock is set to ‘On’ (Menu P010), to operate the mower, first press one of the operating mode buttons and then press the OK button to confirm. S-Model: The Child Lock feature locks the buttons to prevent unintended operation, especially by children. To turn this feature on, set Child Lock to On (under the Mower Settings menu). When the Child Lock is turned On, Keys Locked is displayed.
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. Every press of the Setting button will move between the following 4 menu options: ⦁ Day and Time – Sets the current day and time. ⦁ Mowing Hours(%) (Intensity) – Increases/decreases the number of mowing hours (in %) needed to cover the lawn size. ⦁ Inactive Time – Sets times when the mower will be inactive. Inactive operating times can be set for specific day(s) of the week, and for specific hours for all days in the week. ⦁ Area – Updates the size of the lawn in case it has been changed.
Island OFF: Usually recommended for lawns without an island installation. When the mower is in searching for Base Station mode, the mower will acquire the first wire it detects and follow all the way to the Base Station. Island ON: This is recommended for lawns with island installations. In rare cases, you may notice that the mower unnecessarily circles around a Perimeter Island while searching for the Base Station. The Islands option helps overcome this situation. To avoid such cases, turn the Islands feature On. When the Islands feature is set to On, the mower will execute a special method of searching for the Base Station. As a result, it may take the mower longer to arrive to the Base Station.
If your lawn contains islands with a small diameter (up to 2 meters), then you can leave the setting of the Islands to ‘Off,’ as the mower will detect such an island, and will leave them fairly quickly. But in cases where there is a large island (for example a swimming pool, pond, or a large group of flowers/trees), which the robot can drive around for a long time, then it is recommended to set the Islands to ‘On,’ to prevent the mower from following the wire around these islands.
C-Model: To restart the One-Time Setup process, press and hold the STOP + Setting + Left arrow buttons together for more than four seconds. This will invoke the factory defaults (“out of the box” settings). S-Model: To restart the One-Time Setup process, press and hold the STOP + Down arrow buttons together for more than four seconds. This will invoke the factory defaults (“out of the box” settings).
With RC models, if you want to cancel the setup process, press the STOP button continuously for 3 seconds. With RS models, simply press the STOP button. You will see a question on the screen that says “Quit the setup process?” Then scroll to select the checkmark.
Robomow can mow over flat-paved stones that are more or less the same height as the lawn grass; however, Robomow will not be able to drive over stones that are at levels much higher than the grass.
The maximum number of Sub-Zones will be different for each Robomow model.
The Perimeter Wire functions as an “invisible wall” for Robomow. It sets the boundaries of lawn zones, and it surrounds specific areas where you do not want Robomow to enter. The Perimeter Wire is held to the ground with small pegs, supplied with Robomow. Soon after settling, the wire will become invisible under the growth of new grass. As soon as Robomow starts operating, it turns on a signal that runs along the Perimeter Wire. This signal keeps Robomow within its working zones and away from preset demarcated areas. The Perimeter Wire is laid around the edges of the lawn and around trees, plants, ponds and objects that you want Robomow to avoid.
Robomow is much quieter than standard push-mowers. The noise is less than 70 dB. If the Robomow is noisy, you may have a damaged or unbalanced blade.
Robomow can handle almost any type of residential lawn, with a total area of up to 10,500 square feet. The maximum slope inside the lawn that can be handled by Robomow is 20 degrees (35%). Robomow can also handle multi-zone lawns, and you can mow any separated grass patch using manual mowing via remote control (available as an accessory or in the Robomow App).
Robomow’s mowing schedule is defined by three major parameters: ⦁ Lawn area ⦁ Inactive times ⦁ Mowing frequency (Mowing Interval) The lawn area defines the required mowing time for your lawn – this is the duration of a single mowing cycle. The inactive times define the hours and days when Robomow should not be on the lawn. The mowing frequency (Interval) parameter defines how often a new mowing cycle should start (once a week, twice a week, etc.). During active times, Robomow will continuously alternate between mowing and charging until it completes the entire mowing cycle. After a mowing cycle is completed, it will stay in the Base Station until the next Mowing Cycle should start, depending on the configured mowing frequency. By default, Robomow completes two Mowing Cycles per week in order to keep your lawn healthy and looking good. However if your lawn requires more maintenance time, you can easily adjust the time Robomow runs in a single Mowing Cycle, by setting the “Mowing Hours %” (Intensity) parameter.
Yes. Robomow can handle situations of extreme heat without any problems.
Robomow can mow in rainy weather, but for the health of your lawn, we don’t recommend mowing wet grass. Since Robomow finishes the work faster than competing mowers designed for similar-sized lawns, it doesn’t have to mow in rain to be able to maintain your lawn. Instead, Robomow is smartly equipped with a rain sensor, which halts operation in rainy or highly humid weather. There are many reasons why you should not mow the lawn when it’s wet, including: – Disease spreads quickly when the grass is wet. – The mower can get clogged. – The Grasscycling is not good enough (mulching). Clippings tend to clump, which doesn’t look good on your lawn. – It’s not fun for you and not good for the lawn either, since the clippings provide free fertilizer. – Damp grass is slippery and may cause the mower to slip and cause damage to the lawn. When a rainy or highly humid condition is detected by the Rain Sensor, it will signal to Robomow to halt current operation, and start searching for the Base Station. If rain is detected while Robomow is in the Base Station and an automatic operation is about to start, a “rain detected” message will be displayed by Robomow, and the automatic operation will resume 30 minutes after rain is no longer detected by the Rain Sensor.
Due to its heavy-duty steel blades, Robomow is the only robotic mower strong enough to perform a cut when the grass is relatively high. However when mowing high grass during the first use or, for example, during the first mowing of the season, you will initially see uneven patches of grass. Please be patient, as it may take a few days to one week to overcome this and bring the lawn to an even height and consistency. Robomow’s TurboMow feature allows faster and stronger mowing of high grass during the first cut of the season. In TurboMow mode, Robomow reduces its driving speed, doubles the number of mowing hours, and works at the highest RPM. This will already provide you with better mowing results after the initial mowing cycle. The S models have floating mowing decks, which automatically rise up in high grass, thus allowing them to mow the grass gradually until reaching the desired level.
We recommend periodically inspecting the area where Robomow will be used, and removing toys and other foreign objects. However, there is no need to worry if Robomow encounters these objects during its work. Robomow’s excellent maneuverability can help overcome these types of barriers.
S-Model: Robomow can handle a narrow passage of at least 1.2m and wider. The length of a narrow passage can be up to a few meters. If the pass is narrow (1.2 – 2m), you have to set a special Perimeter Wire configuration to lead Robomow in and out of the pass. You can use the Special Template supplied with Robomow to set the narrow passage. If the narrow passage is wider than 2m (6.5ft.), and you want Robomow to mow the area inside the narrow passage, you can set the perimeter wire in such a way that allows Robomow to mow inside the narrow passage, but prevents it from crossing between the zones. C-Model: If thenarrow passage is 1m – 2m wide: To set up anarrow passage, follow these instructions: ⦁ At the point you want the mower to start driving towards the Sub-Zone, you can begin to set the narrow passage. ⦁ 50 cm (20 inches) from the narrow passage entry, set a Perimeter Island of 30 cm sides (12 inches) at a distance of 10 cm (4 inches) from the Perimeter Wire. ⦁ Continue to lay the wire towards the Sub-Zone and lay another island with the same dimensions, 50 cm (20 inches) from the Sub-Zone Perimeter Wire. ⦁ After completing the setup of the wire in the Sub-Zone, make sure you keep 10 cm (4 inches) between the wire and the islands on the way back to the Main Zone. If thenarrow passage is wider than 2m (6.5ft.), and you want Robomow to mow the area inside thenarrow passage, then you can set the wire as shown: ⦁ At the point you want the mower to start driving towards the Sub-Zone, you can begin to set thenarrow passage. ⦁ Set an island at the middle of thenarrow passage, and keep a distance of 10 cm (4”) from the Perimeter Wire. ⦁ The island dimensions should be 30 cm (12”) along the side and as wide as needed, keeping 10 cm (4”) from both sides. ⦁ After completing the setup of the wire in the Sub-Zone, make sure you keep 10 cm (4”) between the wire and the island on the way back to the Main Zone.
Robomow can mow areas inside the working area that slope up to 20 degrees or 35% (35 cm rise per 1m).
Yes. The area capacity of a particular Robomow model indicates the maximum size of a lawn that the model is recommended for, but you can use Robomow for any smaller lawn as well. All you need to do is to set the area setting of Robomow to suit your lawn’s size.
If your lawn is bigger than 34,400 square feet, you can purchase an additional Robomow and split your lawn between the two mowers.
The largest recommended area size of a lawn that can be handled by Robomow is 34,400 sq ft.
Yes. For example, in Separated Zones, Robomow will mow each zone separately, and its movement between zones is restricted. The mower must be carried or driven to this area manually. You can use the Remote Control (available as an accessory or in the Robomow App), to manually drive and mow anywhere. The Remote Control includes a safety function to prevent accidental use. Note: Do not mow manually if there is a slope greater than 15 degrees, or where firm footing is not possible.
Robomow can mow in rainy weather, but for the health of your lawn, we don’t recommend mowing wet grass. Since Robomow finishes the work faster than competing mowers designed for similar-sized lawns, it doesn’t have to mow in rain to be able to maintain your lawn. Instead, Robomow is smartly equipped with a rain sensor, which halts operation in rainy or highly humid weather.
This varies depending on the size of your lawn and other factors. It’s important to note that Robomow has the widest cutting width of any robotic mower in the market, which allows it to finish the mowing faster, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy your lawn. The mowing time can always be adjusted using the Mowing Hours (Intensity) (%) setting – to increase/decrease the number of operating mowing hours (Intensity) (in %) needed to cover the lawn size.
There is no limit of islands that can be installed on the lawn, but the wire length should not be more than 800 meters.
When there is an obstacle on the edge, surround the object with the Perimeter Wire by the relevant distance for each model ( C model – 28cm / S model – 40cm).
C-Model The minimum distance of the island installation from the Perimeter Wire should be 1 m (3.3 ft). ⦁ The minimum distance of the perimeter wire from the protected area should be 28 cm (11 inches). ⦁ If you need to protect a thin object, set the minimum radius of the island to 35 cm (15 inches). S-Model The minimum distance of the island installation from the Perimeter Wire should be 1.5 m (4.9 ft). ⦁ The minimum distance of the Perimeter Wire from the protected area should be 32 cm (11 inches). ⦁ If you need to protect a thin object, set the minimum radius of the island to 45 cm (15 inches).
C-Model You should maintain a minimum of 1 meter (3.3 ft.) between adjacent islands. S-Model You should maintain a minimum of 1.5 m (4.9 ft) between wires of adjacent islands.
⦁ Use the Perimeter Wire to demarcate areas inside the working area by creating islands around obstacles that cannot withstand a collision, for example, flower beds and fountains. ⦁ Continue uncoiling the wire, while moving from the edge towards the protected object. ⦁ Peg the Perimeter Wire around the protected object in a clockwise direction. This is important, because setting the Perimeter Wire counter-clockwise around the obstacle will cause the mower to drive into the island. ⦁ Complete bordering the island and return to the spot where you left the lawn’s edge. ⦁ The wires leading to and from the Island should be parallel and touching. Therefore, you should peg both wires, to and from the island, together with the same pegs. ⦁ Robomow will not recognize these two wires. It will mow over them as if they do not exist. ⦁ Robomow will recognize the single blocking wire around the Perimeter Island and will not enter this area. Objects such as flower beds, ponds, or small trees can be protected by creating Perimeter Islands, which are demarcated areas of the lawn where Robomow does not enter. In the areas where obstacles are grouped closely together, they should be demarcated by a single, continuous Perimeter Island.
Robomow detects when there is an obstacle in its way during operation. When the mower collides with an obstacle, the mower will stop the rotation of the blade immediately, and then stop movement in that direction and reverse itself away from the obstacle.
C-Model If the working area is adjacent to a swimming pool, watercourse, slope greater than 10%, precipice higher than 50 cm (20 inches) or a public road, the Perimeter Wire must be supplemented with a fence or the like. The height must then be at least 15 cm (6 inches). This will prevent the mower from ending up outside the working area under any circumstances. If such a barrier exists, you may set the Perimeter Wire 28 cm (11 inches) from the barrier. If there is no fence or the like, then lay the Perimeter Wire at minimum distance of 1.2 m from the water. S-Model If the working area is adjacent to a swimming pool, watercourse, slope greater than 10%, precipice higher than 50 cm (20 inches) or a public road, the Perimeter Wire must be supplemented with a fence or the like. The height must then be at least 15 cm (6 inches). This will prevent the mower from ending up outside the working area under any circumstances. If such a barrier exists, you may set the Perimeter Wire 40 cm (16 inches) from the barrier. If there is no fence or the like, then lay the Perimeter Wire at minimum distance of 1.2 m from the water.
C-Model If the edge is sloped (a maximum of 10% is allowed), or is bordered with high obstacles such as a wall or fence, the Perimeter Wire should be laid at a distance of 28 cm (11 inches) from the obstacle. Use the longer distance of the RoboRuler to set the distance of the wire from a wall. S-Model If the edge is sloped (a maximum of 15% is allowed), or is bordered with high obstacles such as a wall or fence, the Perimeter Wire should be laid at a distance of 40 cm (1.3 ft) from the obstacle. Use the longer distance of the RoboRuler to set the distance of the wire from a wall.
When the working area is divided by a flat path that is level with the lawn, it is possible to allow Robomow to run over the path. The Perimeter Wire can be laid under the pavement blocks or in the joint between them. Important! The mower must never run over gravel, mulch, or similar material, which can cause the mower to slip and damage the blade.
C-Model If the working area borders a flat area, a flower bed, a small cliff (not more than 1 cm / 0.4”), or a small stair (up to 5 cm / 2”), the Perimeter Wire should be laid 20 cm (8 inches) inside the working area. This prevents the wheels from driving into a ditch. Use the shorter distance of the RoboRuler to set the distance of the wire from the lawn edge. S-Model If the working area borders a flat area, a flower bed, a small cliff (not more than 1 cm / 0.4”), or a small stair (up to 5 cm / 2”), the Perimeter Wire should be laid 32 cm (1 ft) inside the working area. This prevents the wheels from driving into a ditch. Use the shorter distance of the RoboRuler to set the distance of the wire from the lawn edge.
The RoboRuler should be used to determine the distance of the Perimeter Wire from the lawn edge or obstacles. The RoboRuler should be set up at varying distances, based on whether it’s placed near a wall edge, a lawn edge, or in a narrow pass.
Yes. The Perimeter Wire can be laid across a slope that slants less than 10% (10 cm rise per 1 m). It’s important to note that if the Perimeter Wire is laid across a slope steeper than 10%, the mower will slip and cross outside the wire (especially when the grass is wet). However, if there is a barrier (e.g. fence or wall) that can protect the mower from slipping off, the Perimeter Wire can be set on that slope.
Yes. Robomow can mow areas inside the working area that slope up to 20 degrees or 35% (35 cm rise per 1 m).
– At a corner. In this type of setup, the Base Station is located at one of the corners of the lawn. ⦁ Choose a corner where you want to place the Base Station outside of the lawn area. Note that you should not place the Base Station within 3 m (10 ft.) of a corner. ⦁ Place the Base Station so that its front side is touching the lawn edge or placed somewhat on the lawn. ⦁ Continue to lay the Perimeter Wire as shown in the figure above, where it continues at least 10 cm (4”) beyond the Base Station and turns back towards the lawn at a distance of 10 cm (4”) from the other wire. ⦁ The Base Station may be placed in a small shift to the right in order to allow smooth entry of the mower to the Base Station. ⦁ You will have the opportunity to later adjust the Base Station position to confirm smooth entry. – Outside the lawn. Note: For specific models, this can only be set through the Robomow App. ⦁ Choose a place outside the lawn where you want Robomow to dock and charge. ⦁ Confirm that the path between the lawn and the outside area is smooth with no height difference, so Robomow will not get stuck and will follow the wire smoothly. ⦁ The surface between the lawn and the Base Station should be hard (such as a sidewalk or rigid ground) and not sandy or stony, so Robomow will not slip or get stuck. ⦁ The area between the lawn and the Base Station should be clear of obstacles and objects. ⦁ Lay the wire as shown in the figure below: – Narrow path of 50 cm (20”) width. – Square Perimeter Island of 30 cm (12”) edges. – Island starts 50 cm from the Perimeter Wire. – Keep a distance of 10 cm (4”) between Perimeter Wire and the Island from both sides. – The front of the Base Station should be placed a minimum distance of 1.5 m (5 ft.) from the Perimeter Wire, and NOT more than 4 m (13 ft.) from it.
Robomow’s Base Station must be placed along the Perimeter Wire, where the wire “loop” starts and ends. Other things to keep in mind when placing the Base Station include: ⦁ Place it on relatively level ground. Do not place it on a slope. ⦁ Do not place it within 3 meters of a corner. ⦁ Place it close enough (within 20 m) to a wall plug socket (230V / 120V). ⦁ Put it in a shady spot. This will extend the battery lifetime. ⦁ Make sure it is invisible to the street. ⦁ Place the Base Station away from sprinkler heads.
If the Separated Zone is not connected to the Main Zone and Robomow cannot drive between these zones, then you have to define and install it as a Separated Zone. If the Separated Zone is small enough so Robomow can cover all the area in a single operation, then choose one of the following installations: ⦁ If possible, the separated area may be connected to the main area’s Perimeter Wire. ⦁ If that option is not possible, you can use a Perimeter Switch (available as an accessory). It may have to have its own separate Perimeter Wire. ⦁ If the Separated Zone cannot be mowed in single operation, an additional Base Station (optional accessory) should be installed in the separated area.
The length of the Extension Cable should not be changed. If required, call a qualified electricity technician to install power close enough to the Base Station.
The maximum length of the wire that is connected to the charging station is 800 meters. Multiple installations of perimeter islands may cause the wire to exceed the maximum possible length.
Use the supplied pegs to fasten the Perimeter Wire into the ground, below grass level. During the first layout of the wire, insert pegs every few meters, or at any point the wire changes direction, and at corners. At this early stage, set a minimum number of pegs. Later, after testing the wire setup, you can insert all the necessary remaining pegs. After you have completed the testing of the wire position, walk along the wire and insert additional pegs at distances that will keep the wire down below the grass level, and prevent the wire from becoming a tripping hazard. Tip: Do not keep spare pegs for the future. It’s better to use more pegs to ensure that the Perimeter Wire is fastened to the ground to prevent any damage by the mower blade during the operation. The wire and the pegs will soon become invisible under the growth of new grass.
Yes. Robomow is easy to install and use. There are a few things to keep in mind before using Robomow. For Robomow to operate in your lawn, a Perimeter Wire must be installed around the entire lawn, and around protected areas within the lawn area. Proper installation of the Perimeter Wire is critical for the quality and reliability of Robomow’s operation. You can either do the installation yourself, or hire a professional installation service (recommended). For more information about professional installation services, please refer to the Installation Service page on the Robomow website. The Base Station is placed along the Perimeter Wire, and performs two basic functions: ⦁ Generates a signal along the Perimeter Wire. ⦁ Charges Robomow’s batteries. The Power Box is connected between the Base Station and a 230V / 120V wall socket, using a 15 m – C models / 20 m – S models (50 ft – C models / 65 ft – S models) long low voltage cable. After having completed the installation of the Perimeter Wire, Base Station, and the Power Box, and performing the One-Time Setup (which must be performed before operating Robomow for the first time), Robomow will do all the mowing for you for during the entire season!
This depends on the Robomow model you have. The higher the recommended area size, the more wire and pegs are provided.
To learn more about how to install Robomow, take a look at the Installation videos at the Robomow website. Open usa.Robomow.com. Go into “Support Center” menu, then “Do It Yourself,” and select your mower in the Installation and Knowledge Base. STEP 1 – Planning Ahead Read the Operating Manual and watch the Robomow setup & operation video before you start the installation. This video will guide you in finding the best locations for the Base Station, Power Box, and Perimeter Wire. STEP 2 – Placing the Base Station and Power Box Place the Base Station according to your plan, and install the Power Box. STEP 3 – Laying out the Perimeter Wire Place the Perimeter Wire around the edge, using the RoboRuler to keep the required distances from the lawn edge. Use the Perimeter Wire to demarcate areas inside the working area that you do not want Robomow to drive inside (like flower beds and ponds). Use the supplied wire pegs to secure the wire to the ground (within a few weeks, the cable will be completely overgrown and invisible). STEP 4 – Completing the Perimeter Wire Setup and Connection Connect the Perimeter Wire to the Base Station, and the Base Station to the Power Box, using the extension cable. STEP 5 – Robomow is ready for operation.
Go to the Robomow Application Page to check compatibility.
Robomow is stronger than most other robotic mowers designed for similar-sized lawns. Equipped with heavy-duty steel blades and a robust design, Robomow can handle any terrain. Robomow is faster than most other robotic mowers designed for similar-sized lawns. Depending on model, with a 28- or 56-inch cutting width, Robomow gets the job done faster than its competitors. Robomow edging takes care of the entire lawn: The only robotic mower that cuts the edge of the lawn, Robomow’s unique “Edge Mode” allows the blade to go past the wheel while driving on the edge, for an all-round finish you won’t find with any other robotic mower.
Robomow’s noise level depends on the model. Robomow RC/TC/MC – 68dB measured. Robomow RS/TS/MS – 74dB measured.
If you know your lawn size, go to the Category Page and choose the model that meets your needs. If you do not know your lawn size, use the Robomap Tool to find out.
Yes. During out-of-season months, such as winter, fully charge the battery in the Base Station until the Battery indicator is green and lit constantly. Note that the Safety Switch should be in the ‘On’ position during charging. To charge Robomow during winter: C-Model: ⦁ Fully charge the battery in the Base Station until the Battery indicator is green and lit constantly. Note that the Safety Switch should be in the ‘On’ position during charging. LED indicators for charging: – Red is lit constantly – Charge the battery. – Green is blinking – During battery charging. – Green is lit constantly – Battery is fully charged. ⦁ Remove Robomow from its Base Station. Turn the Safety Switch off and store the mower at room temperature. ⦁ If the mower is stored for more than 3 months, recharge the battery every three months until the Battery indicator shows it is fully charged. ⦁ The charging can be done in one of the following options: ⦁ Place the mower in the Base Station for charging. ⦁ Connect Robomow directly to the Power Box as follows: Disconnect the DC cable coming from the power box to the 15m extension cable, and connect it to the rear side of the mower. ⦁ Once the season starts, (do not forget to switch On the Safety Switch), simply place Robomow in its Base Station to begin automatic operation. Note: Always charge your mower in a horizontal position. The mower should be flat on the ground while connected to the power supply. S-Model: Fully charge the mower in one of the two following ways: ⦁ In the Base Station. ⦁ Directly from the Power Box (see below). Remove the fuse from Robomow and store it in the designated cavity under the bumper door. Store the mower at temperature higher than -10ºC. Note! The Safety Switch should be in the ‘On’ position during charging. If the robot is stored for more than 3 months, recharge the battery every 3 months until the battery indicator shows it is fully charged. You can recharge the battery through the Base Station, or by using the Base Station adapter as explained below. Charging instructions using the Base Station adapter: ⦁ Remove Robomow from its Base Station. ⦁ Remove the Base Station Head (Charging Adaptor) by lifting the front lever up and pushing the Adaptor forward from behind the Base Station. ⦁ Unplug the 20 m (65 ft.) Extension Cable and the Perimeter Wire from the Base Station Head. ⦁ Place the cap at the end of the 20 m (65 ft.) Extension Cable and on the exposed connector to protect it from rain and corrosion. Also, cover the Perimeter Wire connector. ⦁ Disconnect the DC Cable coming from the Power Box to the 20 m (65 ft.) Extension Cable. Connect the DC Cable directly to the DC socket on the bottom side of the Base Station Head. Note: It is recommended (but not necessary) to charge the mower using the 20 m (65 ft.) extension cable for better sealing of the Base Station Head during out-of-season charging. ⦁ Slide the Base Station Head pins into the front slot of Robomow. ⦁ Charging will begin immediately. ⦁ When the battery is fully charged, the Ready message will be displayed. ⦁ Once the season starts, (do not forget to insert the fuse and switch On the Safety Switch), just place Robomow in its Base Station to begin automatic operation as the season before. Important! Always charge your mower in a horizontal position. The mower should be flat on the ground while connected to the power supply.
The best way to clean your Robomow is to scrape the the bottom of the mower with a sharp edged tool, then use a damp or wet cloth to wipe the top surfaces. NEVER use a water hose or any type of liquid to clean the underside of the mower.
1. Clean your Robomow before putting it away for the winter. 2 .During the winter, keep your Robomow continuously charged to avoid damage to the batteries (refer to the ‘Maintenance and Storage’ section in your User Manual). 3. Store the mower in a dry area, preferably at room temperature.
You can simply download an app to your mobile device that measures the slope (for example, Clinometer, Slope Level, Slope Calculator, and others). Take a flat surface (such as a wooden platter) and place it on top of the slope on the grass. Open the app that measure slopes, and place your mobile device on the surface to see the degree of the slope.
