Posted on 12th November 2023 at 11:11
Below are some tips on how to properly store your autonomous robot mower.
Storage should start after your last cut of the season, obviously with the ever changing weather in the UK this could be late November or early December.
Before storing it is best to clean the robot thoroughly, this can be done by following these steps.
Always keep the dashboard closed throughout the cleaning process.
If using direct water flow for cleaning only use this on the top of the robot with the dashboard cover closed and the robot in the working position (i.e wheels down).
When cleaning the underneath of the robot it is best to do this with a brush. No direct water flow is advised when the robot is upside down as this could allow dust, gras or water to penetrate the mechanical parts within the robot.
A gentle brush is advised for removing stubborn dirt and then a wipe down of the robot with a wet cloth.
During the winter months let your robot rest so that it is ready for the spring.
After the robot has been clean it is best for you to store this inside, somewhere warm and dry like a shed or garage. Before you placce in a water-resistant box or a nylon bag, log into the STIGA.GO APP and select the hibernation function to pause the robot mower during winter time.
The docking and reference station can be left outside , it is recommended that you cover them to protect from the elements.
