Find out more information about the STIHL iMow robotic mower and how this automated product will care for your lawn giving you more time to relax. To get started please contact your local STIHL iMow Dealer.

HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH iMOW?

+

Speak with your local STIHL approved iMow dealer to arrange an initial consultation. Once you have decided on the right iMow for you, your iMow dealer will make a layout plan of the area to be mown according to your instructions. Then, they will lay the perimeter wire and place the docking station in the best suited section of the area. Your STIHL approved iMow dealer will program the mowing plan with you and can make any additional adjustments required.

HOW OFTEN DOES iMOW CUT THE LAWN?

+

The mowing plan is either created automatically, or manually depending on your lawn’s needs. Whether you prefer the iMow to work when you are at home, or when you are sleeping, you can program it to your preference. iMow not only cuts automatically according to plan, but also adds in a buffer zone to make up for any cutting time it may have missed as a result of battery charging or rain (if the rain sensor is activated).

HOW DOES iMOW DEAL WITH OBSTACLES IN MY GARDEN?

+

For obstacles such as flower beds, ornamental shrubs and other objects, a loop can be easily installed which acts as an exclusion zone. When iMow encounters any unplanned objects such as barbeques or deck chairs, the sensors under the hood automatically reverse the mower and move it off in another direction.

WHAT SAFETY DEVICES DOES iMOW HAVE?

+

The iMow robotic mower is equipped with a variety of sensors. As soon as someone attempts to lift iMow, it stops. If iMow hits a static object, it simply moves into another direction. iMow can also be set so that it can only be operated following entry of a pre-defined PIN code.

WILL IT INTERFERE WITH OTHER ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT?

+

The mowing zone is defined with a perimeter wire which transmits an interference-free signal. This means that the signal does not compete with other signals.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO STEAL AN iMOW?

+

All iMow models are equipped with an alarm that is active when the machine is removed from the mowing areas. iMow can be set so it can only be operated following the entry of a PIN code.

CAN I CONTROL iMOW MANUALLY?

+

Yes. The 6 series models of iMow have a removable control panel that allows you to steer iMow, as well as manually changing the settings. The LCD is always clear on iMow to read, regardless of weather conditions.

IS iMOW SUITABLE FOR ALL GARDENS?

+

The wide range of robotic mowers are ideal for mowing lawns of all sizes, up to 4000m². If your lawn has many nooks and crannies, these can be taken into account and an optimal solution will be found for your lawn layout.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE GRASS CLIPPINGS?

+

iMow is a mulching mower and therefore requires no grass collector. By cutting the grass into very small pieces, the trimmings disappear back into the lawn and provide valuable nutrients to the soil. This eventually leads to a lush and healthy lawn.

WILL iMOW CUT DURING THE NIGHT?

+

Yes. iMow is extremely quiet and is capable of cutting at night.

HOW DOES iMOW TRIM LAWN EDGES?

+

The soft edges located at ground level (such as a low patio or walkway) can be included within the installation. For hard edges (such as walls and elevated patios), iMow can be installed so that it can run as close to the edge as possible.

CAN iMOW TRIM DIFFERENT LAWNS?

+

Yes. Provided they are connected within the same wiring loop, even a separate grassy area may also be mowed.
