the RoboMower know where it
had mowed already?
Yes and No. Its special navigation method uses a pattern that
changes directions and covers the whole plot many times. This
means every square foot of the plot will be mowed in many
different directions, providing a fine groomed "carpet"
appearance once complete. Each time the mower starts,
it begins with a completely new mowing cycle without any memory
of the last. It will however manage separate zoned areas if
desired based on the percentage each zone represents. This
is set up using the menu or App.
it recognize toys or objects
left on the lawn?
If the object is taller than 6 inches and heavy enough,
the RoboMower will bump into it and recognize it as an obstacle.
However, this will prevent efficient mowing at the area
the object was left. As a rule, we recommend that you sweep
the area to be mowed and remove any objects left there.
Small objects may be cut or damaged by the blades just as
they would with a traditional mower. Unlike a traditional
mower, an object that it encounters will not become a dangerous
two mowers be operated on the
Sure. Any number of mowers can be operated at the same time
on one plot. The mowers will bump into each other and go
to a different direction. The area will be mowed very quickly
and efficiently. This is a good solution for very large
yards and special set ups are available for just this purpose.
much area can be maintained?
Each model list the area that it is meant to maintain. If
it is rated for a half acre that is the limit that the mower
can be assigned to. If you have an acre, two half acre mowers
would be required. You cannot take a half acre mower and
mow a half acre one day and move it to the next half acre
the next day. The mower does a portion each day and shoud
cover the entire area in two days or so once it at "maintenance"
What are Zones 1, 2, 3 ..?
The zones are used as a method of breaking up the lawn into
more manageable areas and can also allow the mower to travel
through narrow passes to other areas like from a front to
a back yard .The mower can be set to travel to these areas
adjacent neighbors use their RoboMower
at the same time?
Yes, they can. An A and B channel setting will prevent one
interfering with the other. If running two mowers (or more)
on the same property, it is recommended that they run on

You can only do this if you have a door that allows it to
enter or exit as it returns to the dock to charge or its
shedule tells it to start mowing. Many people build small
houses resembling a dog house for their mowers. Some even
have a plackard with the mower's name. Some of the more
popular names are Moe, Trimmy and Hal.
