Install the robotic lawnmower correctly

The Content Of The Article:

He tirelessly turns his rounds, being quiet and extremely efficient: the robotic lawnmower. Once installed, you do not want to miss the little lawn care. As a positively surprising side effect, manufacturers and gardeners have been observing the decline of moles on the automatically mown lawns for some time. How it works with the installation:

Mowing robot with accessories

Accessories and tools needed to install the robotic lawnmower

The accessory, consisting of charging station, earth screws, plastic hooks, distance gauge, terminals, connection and green signal cable, is included in the scope of delivery of the robotic lawnmower (Husqvarna). Required tools are combination pliers, plastic mallets, and Allen key and in our case, a lawn edge trimmer.

Step 1:

Robotic lawnmower charging station

Place charging station

The charging station should be placed in a freely accessible location on the edge of the lawn. Passages and corners less than 3 meters wide are to be avoided. A power connection must also be nearby.

Step 2:

Measure the distance to the edge of the lawn

Measure the distance to the edge of the lawn

The distance meter helps to keep the correct distance of the signal cable to the edge of the lawn. With our model, 30 centimeters to the flowerbed and 10 centimeters to the level path are sufficient.

Step 3:

Lay the induction loop with the lawn edge trimmer

Lay the induction loop with the lawn edge trimmer

With the Rasenkantenstecher the induction loop, as the signal cable is also called, can be laid in the ground. In contrast to the aboveground variant is prevented so that they are damaged by Vertikutarbeiten. For beds within the lawn, the boundary wire is simply placed back around the spot and next to the leading cable back towards the outside edge. Impact-resistant obstacles, such as a large boulder or tree, do not need to be framed because the mower turns automatically as soon as it hits.


The induction loop can also be laid on the turf. For fixing serve the included hooks, which are hit by plastic hammer in the ground. Overgrown by the grass, the signal cable is soon no longer visible. Professionals often use special cable laying machines. The devices cut a narrow slot in the lawn and pull the cable in the desired depth.

Step 4:

Mow robots search cable in grass hole

Embed the search cable of the mowing robot in the lawn area

A search cable can be connected optionally. This additional connection between the induction loop and the charging station leads through the middle of the area and ensures that the Automower can find the station easily at any time.

Step 5:

Attach the contact terminals to the charging station

Attach the contact terminals to the charging station

At the cable ends of the finished installed induction loop, the contact clamps are fastened with the pliers. This one puts into the connections of the charging station.

Step 6:

Mower robot power cord in socket

Mower Robotic Connect power cord to outlet

The power cord is also connected to the charging station and connected to a power outlet. A light-emitting diode indicates whether the induction loop is correctly routed and the circuit is closed.

Step 7:

Man charges robotic lawnmower

Mowing robot charges its battery to station

With the earth screws you fix the charging station in the ground. So the mower can not move it when entering. The robotic lawnmower is then placed in the station to allow the battery to charge.

Step 8:

Control panel of the robotic lawnmower

Control panel of the robotic lawnmower

The control panel can be used to set the date and time as well as mowing times, programs and theft protection. Once this is done and the battery is charged, the device will automatically start mowing the lawn.
