There are lots of models – how do I choose the right one for my garden?
You need to measure your lawn to determine the size, this can be done manually or by entering your postcode into this measuring tool www.findlotsize.com. Robomow has 6 models which can cope with lawns from 0 – 3500 square metres. Choose the one which is correct for your lawn size.
Does it store/compact the cut grass? How often does it need to be emptied?
Robomow does not collect grass. Because it mows 6 times per week the grass never gets long enough to produce noticeable clippings. In fact Robomow will improve the quality of your lawn because lawns love being mowed regularly. The very fine clippings which go back into the lawn sward are beneficial to your lawn.
What happens in the rain?
Robomow has an adjustable rain sensor and returns to its base station when it rains.
Can you set it to mow remotely?

You can easily adjust mowing times and frequency from the Robomow app which is loaded onto your smart phone or tablet. A GSM module can be added as an extra item should you wish to receive alerts or want to make adjustments from anywhere.
What happens to Robomow during the winter?
When the grass stops growing in the autumn Robomow should be cleaned and stored in doors and the battery charged once every 3 months. The base station stays outside.
