Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Automower® is a whole new style of lawn care! With traditional mowing, your lawn grows tall before being cut off all at once. By contrast, Automower® clips just a little grass at a time, frequently. The result is a lawn that’s always picture-perfect. And don’t worry about Automower® missing a spot – the unit changes its pattern according to a programmed schedule. Talk about a smart solution!
- Clips rather than cuts
- Fine clippings fertilize naturally
- Smart working time based on grass growth rate
Is Automower® safe?
Automower® is safe for use around your children or pets. The blade will automatically stop if the mower is even slightly lifted. The outer body of Automower® is extra wide to provide ample space between the blade and the outer edges of the cover. Additionally, Automower® can be scheduled to dock when kids or pets are in the yard.
- Blades stop immediately if unit is lifted
- Gently moves around yard
- Non-fixed blades
Will Automower® be stolen?
Your Automower® is uniquely yours. To discourage theft, every Automower® comes with a unique PIN code that must be entered to make the unit operational. Additionally, Automower® has an audible anti-theft alarm built in. In the event of theft, models equipped with GPS tracking can pinpoint where the unit is.
- Smartphone-viewable GPS
- PIN code activation
- Anti-theft alarm
Will it go in the street or my neighbor's lawn?
Automower® cuts inside a boundary wire that’s easily installed by you or the selling dealer. It’s a dependable and effective system that can be customized to any yard or series of obstacles. As a result, your Automower® will go only where you want it to go – never in the street or a neighbor’s yard.
- Easily installed boundary wire
- Stays within pre-defined area
- Returns to charger on own
What about noise?
- Far quieter than traditional mowers
- Won’t disturb the neighbors
- Can be set to run at night
What if it rains?
Yes, Automower® is designed to withstand wet, rainy weather. In fact, your Automower® will continue cutting in dew or light rain. If the downpour becomes too much, the unit will head back to the recharging station. However, we do recommend you bring the mower inside during extreme weather conditions.
- Works in wet and rainy conditions
- Returns to station as needed
- Weather resistant
Are slopes a problem?
Thanks to its large driving wheels, Automower® works well on uneven ground and slopes up to 24°. Unlike traditional mowers, Automower® will not scalp hills. To help Automower® complete its job perfectly, it’s helpful to fill any gaps or holes in the yard prior to starting your mower.
- Handles slopes up to 24°
- Large driving wheels
- Won’t scalp hills
