How Do You Install Robotic Mowers?
Buying a robotic lawn mower is the latest gardening gadget and the most efficient way to maintain your lawn. There are several models of Automower® to choose from, but have you thought about how to get set up?
Installing your Automower®
After we have assessed the property and established the area of mower operation, we then embed the boundary wires, set up the machine and test its operation to ensure it can run to and from the base docking station. If your lawn contains water features, trees or dividing pathways, the installation and consultation ensures that the robotic mower only operates where it is safe to do so.
Here are the basic steps to take when installing an Automower®:
Set up the docking station
Find a good spot for your charging and docking station in your garden. This area needs to be away from direct sunlight and out of the range of sprinklers or regularly hosed areas.
Charge your Automower®
Connect the machine to your docking station and allow it to charge for up to 100 minutes. Ensure the path to your docking station is clear for the mower to drive in and charge automatically.
Place the boundary wire
Attach the boundary wire around the edges of the lawn or operating area using the supplied pegs. Ensure this wire is laid close enough to the ground to avoid tripping. Dealer installs would lay the boundary wire beneath the surface of the turf.
Place the guide wire
In the same way that you have installed the boundary wire, lay a length of the wire from the furthest part of your cutting area to the docking station. You should now see three wires coming from the station including both ends of the boundary loop.
Let it Mow
Your new Automower® should now be ready for its maiden voyage across your garden. Please ensure that your lawn is not overgrown, as robotic mowers are not designed to handle grass that hasn't been cut in a long time
