How should I look after the Robotic Mower?

All the FAQ's about maintaining the Flymo 1200R you will find here. 

Q. What is the lifetime of the battery?

The battery is maintenance-free but has a limited life span of 2-4 years. Battery life is dependent on the length of the season and how many hours a day the Flymo Robotic Lawnmower 1200R is used. A long season or many hours of use a day means that the battery must be replaced more regularly. If the operating times for the lawnmower are shorter than normal between charges, this indicates that the battery is getting old and eventually needs replacing. You should take this to your nearest authorised FLYMO servicing dealer to replace.

Q. Do I need to store the 1200R inside during the winter?

Yes. Before putting your Flymo Robotic Lawnmower 1200R away for the winter it should be cleaned and wiped dry, then stored in dry, frost-free conditions. We also recommended that the charging station is stored indoors over the winter. The loop wire installation can remain in the lawn.

Q. What is the lifetime of the blades?

The normal life span is 1 to 3 months when used in areas more than 300 m2 in size and longer for smaller areas. The lifetime of the blades varies immensely and depends for instance on:

-Operating time and size of the working area

-Type of grass

-Type of soil

The presence of objects such as pine cones, toys, tools, stones, roots and alike on the lawn are likely to damage your mowers cutting blades and should be removed from the lawn regularly to avoid damage to your machine. You can easily replace the blades by yourself.
