Is my lawn suitable for a robotic lawnmower?

ROB is suitable for almost any time of garden as long as it meets the minimum specification for the products. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions, that are asked by customers when they are considering purchasing a McCulloch robotic lawnmower.

HOW NARROW CAN THE PASSAGES IN MY GARDEN BE?

The minimum passage ROB can pass through is 150cm (wall to wall). This ensures that the he can easily reach the areas on both sides of the passage.

WHAT ABOUT PINE CONES, TREE BRANCHES AND FRUIT ON THE GROUND?

If ROB ‘bumps’ into any of these it will stop and cut the lawn in another direction. To avoid unnecessary stoppages and to maximise ROB’s performance and life these types of objects should be raked or collected regularly. These types of objects are unlikely to damage the robotic lawnmower but may reduce its overall performance.

MY LAWN IN UNEVEN CAN ROB COPE?

Because of ROB’s large driving wheels, the lawn does not have to be totally flat for ROB to cut the grass. However, sharp/deep holes should be avoided, and filled with soil to get an even surface in order to avoid your robot lawnmower from getting stuck.

HOW DOES ROB HANDLE VERY LONG GRASS?

If the grass is very long and thick for your first cut you should raise the cutting height and gradually reduce it to the preferred level.

In this instance it is recommended that you initially cut the grass with a lawnmower or grass trimmer before installing the robotic.

WILL ROB CUT IN RAINY CONDITIONS?
