Gardena R40Li lawn mower robot

Gardena R40Li

In last September Gardena, a popular brand of Husqvarna has introduced its own lawn mower the Gardena R40Li to the market (I missed at that time). The robot was designed to autonomously handle the lawn mowing in small gardens up to 400 sq m (4,300 sq ft). The shape of the mower and the large STOP button on the top quickly reveal that this robot is a modified version of the Husqvarna Automower 305, announced approximately a year ago. The cutting technology and the robotic background seem to be the same, but the area this robot can handle has decreased by 20% (from 500 sq m to 400 sq m), and the disc holding the pivoting blades makes only 2900 spins per minute (while the Automower 305 has a 3200 RPM speed). The Gardena R40Li is slightly bigger and heavier, but other than these changes, I expect it to work just like the Husqvarna robot (see my detailed review of the Husqvarna Automower 305).

The Gardena R40Li robotic lawn mower is already available in several European countries for about €1,300 (approx. the same as the Automower).

GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower R40Li

Fantastic: never mow the lawn yourself again

Ulm, 8 September 2011 A beautiful lawn requires care. Above all, it must be regularly mowed. This is work and takes time. But does it really have to be this way? GARDENA says: No, thanks. With the new Robotic Lawnmower R40Li, garden owners no longer need to mow their lawns themselves. This innovative Robotic Lawnmower mows all on its own.

And that's not all. Lawn areas tackled by the GARDENA R40Li are always excellently cared for. They not only look freshly and accurately mowed; they actually are. The continuous mowing care also guarantees especially dense grass growth that doesn't give weeds or moss a chance.

The new Robotic Lawnmower is equipped with special, razor-sharp blades. These allow extremely clean cuts. The GARDENA R40Li does not follow rigid lanes. On the contrary. During mowing, it covers the lawn in random, continuous patterns. This ensures even mowing of the entire area without lane marks. Obstacles are cleverly circumnavigated by the Robotic Lawnmower, without damages. It can even master inclines up to 25 percent without a problem.

With each crossing of the lawn, grass tips are repeatedly clipped. That is why the grass cuttings make an extremely fine mulch. It is hardly visible and decomposes quickly to natural fertiliser.

The GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower R40Li is powered by a lithium-ion battery that can be easily recharged at any time. The clever Robotic Lawnmower recharges all on its own. It drives independently to the charging station, always in time.

Only a few preparations are required before the GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower R40Li can get down to work. First, it needs to know where mowing is required. This is easily and quickly done by placing a Border Wire. The Border Wire is supplied.

Now, the new GARDENA Robotic Lawnmower R40Li just needs some work instructions. With the user guidance, this is also super easy.

Regardless whether the Robotic Lawnmower mows during the day or night, it carries out its mowing duties as quiet as a whisper, not disturbing at all. The GARDENA R40Li is, of course, also safe. As soon as it is lifted, it switches itself off. A loud alarm and a PIN-code lock prevent theft.
