Introducing the Stihl iMow® – so you don’t have to.
Stihl’s new robotic mowers are designed not just to mow your lawn but as an added bonus, the continual fine mulching and frequent cutting helps promote lawn growth whilst ensuring most weeds are kept under control as they are unable to establish themselves within the lawn.
Two models available
Currently Stihl has released two models to the Australian market.
RMI 422 P
Suitable for a maximum lawn area of 1,500m2, and a slope of 40% gradient (~22 Degrees). The Stihl RMI 422 has a cutting width of 20cm and to mow the entire 1,500m2 it will take approximately 25 hours of mow time. The RMI 422 P is powered by 18.5 Volt Lithium-Ion batteries with a total capacity of 4.5Ah. Cutting height can be set between 20mm to a maximum of 60mm. For more information you can view the details of the machine here.

Is my garden suitable for an iMow®?
An iMow® can be installed in most gardens however there are certain things to consider when deciding to purchase a robotic mower :-
- Can the mower access the entire garden?
If the grassed areas are continuous without obstructions then the iMow® should be able to get to most places. If there are concrete slabs or paths that the mower needs to cross this can still be done provided the path / concrete is level with the grass. Installation may entail cutting channels through these surfaces to allow the guide wires to be laid and then back filled with silicone. Special ‘gates’ (which are created by shaping the guide wire) can be included in the installation and the mower programmed to traverse these corridors to ensure that all areas are cut. Gates and very narrow corridors (less than 1m) can cause problems with getting the mower through.
- What about trees?
Large trees that drop branches can cause a hazard to the mower. These branches need to be collected before the mower starts it’s mow cycle as, depending on the size of the branch, they may cause damage the blade. Exposed tree roots need to be identified prior to installation and may need to be excluded from the mowing area.
- What is a guide wire and how is it installed?
Guide wires or perimeter wires are the wires that are installed to define the mowing area. When an install is completed by one of our staff we use a special cable layer which buries the cable approximately 50mm into the ground, other options are to peg the wire on top of the ground which will then disappear down into the grass in approximately 3 weeks of normal growing conditions.
- What about the docking station?
The docking station is where the mower returns to recharge and where it waits whilst it is not mowing. The docking station needs to be placed on a flat surface no more than 7m from an out door power supply. The docking station does not need to be located within the mowing area (it can be placed up to 12m away from the mowing boundary) however there must be clear space to either side of it – minimum of 40cm to 44cm either side depending on model of iMow®.
