Technical details of the Robolinho® 500 E robotic lawnmower
Intelligent garden maintenance is part of the present with the Robolinho® 500 E. A quiet and emission-free operation of this robotic lawnmower is given by the 60 dB quiet electric motor, which receives its energy from a 2.25 Ah / 20 V strong and durable lithium-ion battery. As a result, the AL-KO robotic lawnmower can also be operated at night. The specially developed motion technology paired with a 20 cm cutting width ensures efficient lawn care for areas of up to 500 m². Obstacles such as trees or gradients of up to 45% are easily mastered.
Infinitely adjustable cutting height from 25 mm to 55 mm, allowing you to adjust the length of your lawn to your personal preference. The DCS (Double-Cut-System) developed by AL-KO ensures a perfect cut and the resulting grass clippings are chopped in the mower housing and returned to the lawn as organic fertilizer. Therefore, you do not have to dispose of grass clippings when using the Robolinho® 500 E. The reliable sensor technology of the robotic lawnmower offers maximum safety for humans and animals.

How does Robolinho work?
Fully automatic after just 3 steps of installation: A thin cable is laid around the lawn in the ground. This boundary wire sends the Robolinho back and the Robolinho randomly moves to another boundary. Thus, all areas of the lawn are mowed effectively. At the edge of the mowing area, a base station is placed, which Robolinho will automatically visit when the battery becomes weak. The Robolinho is programmed with weekly routines and fine tuning and off you go.
Do I have to bury the boundary wire?
No, the freshly laid wire will disappear under the grass surface in two to four weeks. The installation pegs keep the cable on the ground however if you prefer you can also bury the cable down to a max. 6 cm.
What happens to flower beds and trees that are in the middle of the garden?
These surfaces are excluded from the mowing surface using the boundary cable.
What happens to an obstacle that happens to be lying on the mowing surface?
If it is an object with a minimum height of 4-5 cm, the Robolinho drives against it, turns and starts again in a (random) other direction.
What about inclines?
The large, coarsely profiled wheels provide strong traction for uneven surfaces and inclines up to 35%.
If I let Robolinho work while I'm away, do I have to worry about being stolen?
Robolinho is secured by a PIN and PUK code, like a mobile phone. This code must be entered before commissioning, so it will be unusable for anyone who does not own the code.
What happens to the grass clippings?
The integrated mulch system leaves tiny shredded grass clippings. This remains on the lawn and disintegrates as a natural fertiliser.
When does the Robolinho work?
The Robolinho can work through day and night, with the operating hours set by the user.
How loud is the Robolinho whilst mowing?
The Robolinho works very quietly, the guaranteed volume is 69 dB (A).
Can you get hurt by the Robolinho?
There are lifting and tilting sensors which ensure immediate stopping of the blade. There is an additional emergency stop button on the housing.
Are Robotic lawnmowers environmentally friendly?
Yes, it does not use oil or petrol, the Robolinho works with a powerful Li-Ion battery (2.9 Ah / 25.2 V). There are no exhaust gases generated.
Is the Robolinho suitable for me as a person who suffers from allergies?
The Robolinho does not pollute the air. Grass and dust particles are hardly disturbed, so allergic reactions are less likely to be triggered. Since the Robolinho works alone, it is well suited for allergy sufferers.
Does the Robolinho cut tall grass for example, after a longer holiday?
The grass should not exceed 15 cm in length, but the density of the lawn can also affect cutting performance. It is recommended that you do not mow more than half of the grass length at a time.
Does the fallen fruit in my garden interfere?
Yes, all foreign objects can cause malfunctions.
How do I use the Robolinho?
An instruction manual with a quick guide is included. Your dealer will be happy to help you with the initial set up.
Is the lawn well maintained?
Yes, regular mowing, which can be preset via the weekly program, provides optimal care. Thanks to the mulching system, mowing and mulching are done in one go. The cut grass is finely chopped and dropped into the lawn acting as a fertiliser for grass.
How long does it take to mow the lawn?
The total mowing time depends on the size of the area, the layout of the lawn, mowing conditions and the length of the grass.
Do I need a computer to program?
No, the user interface with LCD display and 6 buttons makes it easy to use
Do I need a second battery?
No, the battery life is very long. Furthermore, the Li-Ion battery charges without memory effect, thus hardly any self-discharge and ensures a long life.
How does Robolinho know where it works?
Robolinho moves randomly within the mowing area, which is marked out with the boundary wire. It does not go beyond this "virtual fence".
Do you have to collect the clippings?
This is not necessary, because the heavily shredded clippings quickly decompose and act as a natural fertiliser.
What about my pond?
Ponds, swimming pools and other areas can be excluded from the mowing area by the perimeter wire.
What does the Home button next to the display mean?
The Robolinho drives straight on, along the boundary wire, to its base station and mows no more that day.
Do I have to be present when the Robolinho mows?
No, but the owner has to decide whether to let Robolinho run unattended or not. In either case, it is safe and saves time.
Is setting up difficult?
No, setting up is very simple and only required once. The enclosed operating instructions will help you.
Is the cutting height adjustable?
Yes, manually in 5 steps.
Which knife system does Robolinho use?
The system consists of a plastic knife plate with two cutting blades.
At what speed do the blades turn?
At 3400 rpm
How is the Robolinho stopped?
A red stop button acts as an emergency stop button is clearly visible on the housing. The Robolinho can also be sent to the base station with the Home button. Only then does Robolinho no longer work. The base station also has a home button.
