Why mow your own lawn – or pay the neighbour’s kid to do it – when you can get a robot to instead? Robotic lawn mowers such as STIHL’s iMow® utilize a host of technological innovations to keep your grass neat and trim while barely lifting a finger. The machine can be programmed to operate at specific times of day. Your iMow® will not only adjust patterns and mowing speed to accommodate the length and density of your grass, it’s also outfitted with a collision sensor that enables the mower to change its route if it’s about to hit a rock or anything else standing in its way. There’s also a sensor that sends the unit back to its charging station during rainfall. Plus, it will automatically return to its charging station when the battery runs low, then continue on as planned once it’s all charged up.
