Automower® installation examples

It is important to plan the Automower® installation carefully. We recommend that you create a sketch of the work area that includes all obstacles and challenges in your garden. This makes it easier to see the ideal position for the charging station, the boundary wire and the guide wire.

Below are some examples we have created that may help you to plan your own Automower® installation.

Small, flat and open lawn

The below illustration is an example of a small, flat and open lawn with only one so-called island (an obstacle surrounded by boundary wire). The installation uses a guide wire that guides the mower back to the charging station when it is time to recharge.

Medium-sized lawn with some challenges

The below illustration is an example of a medium-sized, slightly challenging lawn with two islands (obstacles surrounded by boundary wire), a narrow passage, a remote area and a slope. The installation uses two guide wires that help the mower find its way back to the charging station when it is time to recharge and guides the mower through the narrow passages and to the remote areas.

Complex lawn with many challenges

The below illustration is an example of a challenging lawn with several islands (obstacles surrounded by boundary wire), narrow passages, remote areas, a slope and a secondary area. The installation uses two guide wires that help the mower find its way back to the charging station when it is time to recharge and guides the mower through the narrow passages and to the remote areas.

When you want the mower to work in the secondary area, simply move the mower there and select Secondary area when starting the mower. In a secondary area, your mower will mow for a specified period of time or until the battery runs out. It will not start searching for the charging station.
