Robot Mower Installation

Deciding on the best robot mower installation option for you

Many people decide on which robot mower they want and only think about the installation afterwards.

Having the ideal robot mower installation can make the difference between a years of happy usage and a machine that gets replaced after a season. Remember, installation can be a sizeable proportion of the overall robot mower cost, especially on a smaller machine.

You can avoid installation completely with our L60 range which is ‘drop & go’ or our new Twenty ZR which doesn’t need a perimeter wire.

At The Robot Mower, we aim to make your decision as easy as possible.  Contact Us before your mower purchase and we not only advise you on the best mower for you but also the most appropriate installation route.

We can carry out a virtual lawn survey and give you an idea of the complexity of a self-installation and then you can decide on self-installation or a professional installation

Installing your robot lawn mower yourself will not only save you money but will give you the confidence to change your layout as your garden changes.

At The Robot Mower, we will help you choose the right mower, put together an installation kit specifically for your lawn and support you with the installation.

We provide a number of resources to assist you with the installation:

1. Use our Measure My Lawn page to work out the length of cable required…remember to add on enough to cater for unexpected diversions and for looping around objects that you want you mower to stay away from (flower beds in the middle of the lawn, tree roots,  etc.).

2. Watch the Ambrogio video on Installation

Professional Installation

If you opt for professional installation of your lawn mower, we will install the wire for you, set-up the mower and give you an overview.

We use a wire laying machine which can lay over 2000 meters of wire an hour. This Wire Layer uses a turning drill bit to cut a groove in the ground. The wire feeds into the groove. Less time is required for the grass to recover since the cut in the ground is very small.

Standard prices for one zone professional installation are based on the model being installed:
Twenty Deluxe/ Elite: £349
Twenty S+/ 25 Elite : £399
Twenty 29 Deluxe: £449
Twenty 29 Elite/ 4.0 Elite/ QUAD: £499
4.36 Elite: £599
L400i: On request

Additional zones & switched zones are charged at £50 per zone. Please note that this excludes perimeter wire at £0.50 per meter.
