What’s the lifetime of the battery?
The battery is maintenance-free, but has a limited life span of 2 to 4 years. Battery life is dependent on the length of the season and how many hours a day the robotic mower is used. A long season or many hours of use a day means that the battery must be replaced more regularly.
What’s the lifetime of the blades?
The lifetime of the blades varies immensely and depends for instance on:
- Operating time and size of the working area.
- Type of grass.
- Type of soil.
- The presence of objects such as cones, windfalls, toys, tools, stones, roots and the like. The normal life is 1 to 3 months when used in areas more than 300 m² in size and longer for smaller areas. You can easily replace the blades by yourself.
