My garden comprises several areas. Can Ambrogio Robot cut all of them?
Ambrogio Robot can manage up to a maximum of 4 working areas: these include the main area where the recharging base is positioned and up to maximum 3 secondary areas corresponding to areas of lawn adjoining the main area.

No. It is not necessary to collect or dispose of grass clippings. Every day, Ambrogio Robot cuts a few millimetres of grass. The clippings are left on the ground and act as a natural fertilizer for your lawn.
Is the perimeter wire fed by a signal when the robot is in the charging station?
No. When the robot returns to the charging station, no signal is transmitted so as to optimise energy consumption.
Can Ambrogio Robot recharge itself?
Yes. Ambrogio Robot gives a warning when the batteries need to be recharged, and it autonomously returns to the recharging base.
How does Ambrogio Robot work?
Ambrogio Robot works according to programmed work intervals and alternates cutting cycles with recharging. For even grass cutting, it proceeds and rebounds in the area marked by the boundary wire. To optimize cutting, it adopts a spiral movement where the grass is taller or thicker.
Installation And Programming
Can a new object be added to my garden after Ambrogio Robot has been installed?
Yes. However, you need to assess whether the lawn mower robot will hit the new obstacle or whether it will be necessary to modify installation to include it in the perimeter. Your local Ambrogio Robot dealer will provide additional wire during installation so that the boundary wire can be quickly adapted to further changes and avoid joins.
Can I purchase Ambrogio Robot with my neighbour so that it can work in more than one garden?
Yes. But only if the gardens are adjoining and there are no steps between the two gardens. Ask your local Ambrogio Robot dealer to evaluate this specific case. For communal grass cutting, it is necessary to assess the total surface area of the gardens where Ambrogio Robot will work in order to choose the best Ambrogio Robot version.
Will the boundary wire of Ambrogio Robot interfere with outdoor lighting/gate/irrigation/alarm?
Not normally. To avoid any interference, however, it is always advisable to install the recharging base in a position away from automatic gates, power boxes for lighting or automatic irrigation of the garden. Please see the section in the operating manual entitled “Planning of system installation”.
Can Ambrogio Robot recognise benches, deckchairs or other objects on the grass?
Yes, provided that these objects are over 10cm high. Ambrogio Robot will approach and gently touch an obstacle in order to cut the grass around it. Ambrogio Robot will then proceed to cut in a different direction. Ambrogio Robot will not damage and cannot be damaged.
Can Ambrogio Robot recognise trees, low bushes and flower beds in my garden?
Yes. Any objects you prefer Ambrogio Robot not to collide with must be surrounded by boundary wire, laid according to the instructions in the section in the operating manual entitled “Preparation and marking the boundaries of the work areas”. Ambrogio Robot will move to the edge of the wire, and then proceed in a different direction.
