This model offers 6 cutting heights at the front and 2 cutting heights at the rear that you can choose from. The cutting height of this unit ranges between 1 inch and 2.5 inches. It offers multi-zone mowing capabilities. This means that it will drive independently to different areas in your garden, and it will return after completing each area.

It features unique edge learning capabilities that make it more efficient than other models on the market. Also, it can navigate narrow passageways.

Smart features

The mower can be programmed to operate on a pre-selected time and date for the entire season. You can customize the unit’s settings as you like due to the fact that it features a daily schedule, handling weekdays separately to give you better control over the machine. It features a useful rain sensor that makes the unit return to the base station independently in rainy weather, departing again only when the conditions are appropriate. Also, you can adjust the unit’s rain sensor sensitivity. It automatically returns to the docking station for recharging when it senses that the battery is running out of power. It’s smartphone compatible. Therefore, if you install the Robomow app on your smart device, you will be able to interact with the robotic lawn mower when you’re away from home.

It comes with a 500-feet long perimeter wire that you can use for your large lawn and additional zones. It features a useful wired remote control that will make it easier for you to control the unit. In addition, it comes with a spare set of replacement blades. Therefore, when the blades get dull you will have a set of sharp blades at your disposal to ensure safe and good cutting performance.

Safety

This robotic lawn mower features a selectable Child Lock setting that you can use to ensure the small ones won’t have access to the machine. You can lock the unit with a PIN code to make sure that others can’t operate it. In addition, an alarm is triggered when the lawn mower leaves the perimeter. Therefore, you won’t have to worry that the machine will be stolen.

It is recommended that you change the lawn mower’s blades once per year. In addition, it’s fairly easy to replace the 3 blades of the unit, the Quick-Snap feature allowing blade removal without the use of any tools.
