What is the maximum operational area for the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmowers?
Gardena R80Li can handle lawns up to 800m² +/- 20%, depending on complexity of the garden.
My garden is not totally flat, does the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmowers cope?
Gardena R80Li manages inclines inside the working area up to 25%. At the perimeter wire the maximum allowed inclination is 10%.
Will I still need an ordinary lawnmower?
No, normally you don’t need an ordinary lawnmower any more. In the event of uncut grass along the edges of your lawn, we recommend a trimmer to get a perfect finish for your lawn.
Can the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmowers handle all types of gardens?
With minor garden adjustment, in principle all types of gardens can be handled by the Gardena robotic mowers. Of course the garden must meet the product specifications when it comes to for example maximum inclination and narrow passages.
How narrow are passages allowed to be in my garden?
Gardena R80Li: minimum 60 cm (wall-to-wall)
Will the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower cope with my uneven lawn?
Due to the large driving wheels, the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower can also cope with uneven surfaces. Sharp/deep holes should be avoided, for example by filling up the holes with soil to get an even surface in order to avoid unnecessary stops.
Can the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower detect objects such as clothes or toys lying around on the lawn?
No. It is up to the owner to keep the lawn surface free from objects. Any object that is small enough for the robotic mowers to pass over may be damaged, as well as cause damage to the machine’s blades. Make sure your lawn is clear of small objects before operating the mower.
I have a nice flower bed and trees that I want to protect. Is that possible?
Provided the wire has been installed correctly around your flower bed, tree, shrub, or other object, then the robotic mower cannot damage it or intrude into that area.
How does the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower handle very long grass?
In normal operation a robotic lawnmower does not need to cut long grass since it continuously maintains a well-cut lawn. If the grass is very long and thick, at your first start-up, you should raise the cutting height and then gradually reduce it to the prefered level.
I have a lot of moss in my lawn – can the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower handle that?
Yes. In fact, the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmowers will reduce the moss. The continuous mowing has a very positive influence on grass growth leading to the gradual disappearance of moss from the lawn.
Will the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower cut the grass in rainy conditions?
Yes. However it’s recommended that you bring the mower inside in extreme weather conditions, such as torrential rain and storms. If thunder storms are expected you should disconnect all wires to the charging station.
Will the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower cut in very hot conditions?
The Robotic Lawnmower is designed to function in temperatures of up to about 45ºC.
