Robots vacuum your carpet now they mow your lawn!

Previously a thick, lush green lawn could only be obtained by a lot of hard work. 


“Well that’s all about to change through the introduction of GARDENA New Zealand’s innovative and highly intelligent R80Li Robotic Lawnmower. Robots can vacuum your carpet, now they can mow up to a massive 800m² of lawn”, said Nick Bright, General Manager for Gardena New Zealand.

First launched over twenty years ago, robotic lawnmowers are prolific throughout Europe but few have made it to our shores. Kiwi lawns can be quite complex, they feature hard wearing couch or kikuyu grass and incorporate multiple areas. Thanks to GARDENA, it’s now possible to imagine a world where you never have to mow the lawn yourself!

The R80Li Robotic Lawnmower quietly circumnavigates the lawn whilst working around obstacles in its path, cutting every blade of grass.

“Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the R80Li happily mows all on its own automatically returning to the charging station when needed”, Mr. Bright said.

Safely nestled well inside the body of the mower, razor sharp pivoting blades trim the grass tips with every pass turning it into a fine mulch that gradually helps to fertilise the lawn. Traditional lawnmowers use heavy fixed blades to tear off large sections of the grass, leaving it damaged and stressed.

Lift, tilt and collision sensors ensure the cutting blades automatically stop spinning should something unexpected happen. A loud alarm and unique security pin also provide added protection.

The R80Li requires minimal maintenance. After the initial one off installation of the charging station, non-invasive boundary wire and guide wire, the unit automatically operates unsupervised according to the user defined program.

“Kiwis can be time poor, keeping up with work and life means we don’t always have the ability to spend each week manicuring our lawns in our spare time. The R80Li Robotic Lawnmower allows you to spend your time where it is most important, with family and friends, or just relaxing with peace of mind that your lawn is taken care of”, Mr. Bright concluded.
