Zucchetti Ambrogio Frequently Asked Questions
How does Ambrogio Robot work?
Ambrogio Robot cuts grass autonomously and automatically. It does not require your help or assistance. Every day, Ambrogio Robot cuts a few millimetres of grass and leaves the clippings on the ground, fertilizing your lawn in a natural way. Ambrogio Robot works according to programmed work intervals and alternates cutting cycles with recharging.
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.
Do I need to collect the grass after Ambrogio Robot has cut it?
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.
How is Ambrogio Robot installed?
Ambrogio Robot works in an area marked by a boundary wire positioned around the edge of your garden. The wire is attached to the ground using plastic fixing nails, or it can be buried. The beginning and the end of the wire are connected to the recharging base, which is connected to a power outlet.
Can Ambrogio Robot work in all weather conditions?
Yes. Ambrogio Robot is designed to work at an ambient temperature from -10 to + 50°C, a range that is much wider than the growth rate of grass.
Can Ambrogio Robot work in the rain?
Yes. Ambrogio Robot can cut while it is raining, however, to prevent it from getting too dirty we recommend activating the rain sensors because cutting wet grass may damage the lawn: Ambrogio Robot will return to the recharging base and will wait for the next work cycle. Please see the section in the operating manual entitled Settings - Programming mode".
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.
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.
How much electricity does Ambrogio Robot consume?
The monthly consumption of Ambrogio Robot is considerably less than the fuel consumption required to use a petrol-driven lawn mower. For a medium sized lawn, the electricity costs of Ambrogio are just over 1 euro per month!!
