Can Robomow cope with narrow passages?

RX Model:

Robomow RX can handle narrow passages of 57 cm and wider. The distance between the perimeter wires in such passage should be at least 15 cm.

 

RC/MC-Model:
If the Narrow Pass is 1m – 2m wide:

To set up a Narrow Pass, follow the instructions given in the figure below:

  1. At the point you want the mower to start driving towards the Sub-Zone, you can begin to set the Narrow Pass.
  2. 50 cm (20 inches) from the Narrow Pass entry, set a Perimeter Island of 30 cm sides (12 inches) at a distance of 10 cm (4 inches) from the Perimeter Wire.
  3. Continue to lay the wire towards the Sub-Zone and lay another island with the same dimensions, 50 cm (20 inches) from the Sub-Zone Perimeter Wire.
  4. After completing the setup of the wire in the Sub-Zone, make sure you keep 10 cm (4 inches) between the wire and the islands on the way back to the Main Zone.

 

 

 

If the Narrow Pass is wider than 2m (6.5ft.) , and you want Robomow to mow the area inside the Narrow Pass, then you can set the wire as shown in the figure below.

  1. At the point you want the mower to start driving towards the Sub-Zone, you can begin to set the Narrow Pass.
  2. Set an island at the middle of the Narrow Pass, and keep a distance of 10 cm (4”) from the Perimeter Wire.
  3. The island dimensions should be 30 cm (12”) along the side and as wide as needed, keeping 10 cm (4”) from both sides.
  4. After completing the setup of the wire in the Sub-Zone, make sure you keep 10 cm (4”) between the wire and the island on the way back to the Main Zone.

 

 

 

 

RS/MS-Model:

Robomow can handle a narrow passage of at least 1.2m and wider. The length of a narrow passage can be up to a few meters.

If the pass is narrow (1.2 – 2m), you have to set a special Perimeter Wire configuration
in order to lead Robomow in and out of the pass. You can use the Special Template supplied with Robomow to set the narrow pass.

If the Narrow Passage is wider than 2m (6.5ft.), and you want Robomow to mow the area inside the Narrow Passage, you can set the perimeter wire in such a way that allows Robomow to mow inside the Narrow Passage, but prevents it from crossing between the zones.
