How does this robot work?
The STIGA wire-guided robotic lawn mower cuts the grass within an electric boundary. The perimeter wire tells the mower where the edges of the lawn are. The robotic mower is a maintaining machine, which means it does not collect the grass but instead the cut grass clippings are scattered onto the lawn that then decompose acting as a natural fertiliser. Programmed to trim the lawn at scheduled intervals, the STIGA robot lawn mower automatically knows when to return to the charging station.
Can the robot lawn mower cross private driveways?
Yes, this robot mower can navigate across footpaths that are at the same height as the lawn or that sit no more than 2 cm above it.
Does the perimeter cable for this robot lawn mower have to be buried in the lawn?
The cable for this robotic lawn mower is either fixed to the lawn by plastic fixing nails or it can be installed a few inches below the soil. The start and end sections of the robot lawn mower's wire are attached to the charging station which is connected to a power supply.
I have a beautiful flowerbed and trees which I want to protect while the robotic lawn mower is working. Is that possible?
Yes, during the installation the guide wire can be installed around trees and flower beds that will constrain the robot to specific cutting areas.
Does the robotic lawn mower work in the rain?
Yes, the robot lawn mower is able to operate in the rain; however, we recommend that you activate the rain sensors as mowing wet grass can ruin the lawn. When the sensors detect rain, the robot mower will then automaticlly return to the charging station and wait for the next working cycle.
Does the robot lawn mower work at night?
As grass is very humid at night and the garden is occupied by nightlife, such as small insects and hedgehogs, we recommend for both nurturing lawn health and respecting the ecosystem to not schedule cutting sessions overnight.
