4.1 Operating principle
The robotic mower (1) is designed for the
automatic mowing of lawns. It mows the
lawn in randomly selected paths.
In order for the robotic mower to detect the
borders of the mowing area A, a
perimeter wire (2) must be routed around
that area. A wire signal generated by the
docking station (3) flows through this
perimeter wire.
Solid obstacles (4) in the mowing area are
reliably detected by the robotic mower by
means of an impact sensor. Areas (5) that
the robotic mower is not to enter and
obstacles that need to be avoided must be
separated from the remaining mowing
area using the perimeter wire.
When automatic mowing is switched
on, the robotic mower independently
leaves the docking station and mows the
lawn during the active times (Ö 14.3).
The robotic mower automatically travels to
the docking station to recharge the battery.
If the mow plan type "Standard" is
selected, the robotic mower mows and
charges throughout the entire active time.
If the mow plan type "Dynamic" is
selected, the number and duration of
mowing and charging operations within the
active times are adapted fully
When automatic mowing is switched
off and for mowing operations
independent of active times, a mowing
operation can be activated in the "Start"
menu. (Ö 11.5)
4. How the robotic mower
0478 131 9265 A - EN
The STIHL robotic mower
can be operated reliably
and without interference
in close vicinity to other
robotic mowers. The wire
signal meets the EGMF
(European Garden
Machinery Federation) standard with
regard to electromagnetic emissions.
The machine is equipped with several
safety devices for safe operation and for
the prevention of improper use.
5.1 STOP button
When the red STOP button on the top of
the robotic mower is pressed, operation of
the machine is stopped immediately. The
mowing blade comes to a standstill within
a few seconds and the message "STOP
button pressed" appears on the display.
The robotic mower cannot be operated
and is safe while the message is active.
(Ö 24.)
When automatic mowing is
switched on, following
confirmation of the message with
OK, the system enquires
whether automatic operation is to be
If the response is Yes, the robotic mower
continues to mow the mowing area in
accordance with the mowing plan.
If the response is No, the robotic mower
remains stationary in the mowing area and
automatic mowing is switched off. (Ö 15.4)
5.2 Disabling device
The robotic mower must be
disabled prior to any
maintenance or cleaning work,
prior to transportation and prior
to inspection.
The robotic mower cannot be operated
when the disabling device is activated.
Activating the disabling device:
Press and hold the STOP button
in the More menu,
in the Safety menu.
Activating the disabling device via the
More menu:
In the "More" menu, select the "Lock
iMOW®" entry and confirm with the OK
button. (Ö 11.8)
Activating the disabling device via the
Safety menu:
In the "More" menu, open the "Settings"
and "Safety" submenus. (Ö 11.16)
Select the "Disab. device" entry and

Back button in the sequence
shown on the display.
5.3 Protective covers
The robotic mower is equipped with
protective covers that prevent inadvertent
contact with the mowing blade and the
These include, in particular, the hood.
5.4 Impact sensor
The robotic mower is equipped with a
movable hood which serves as an impact
sensor. During automatic operation, it
immediately comes to a standstill if it
contacts a solid obstacle which has a
specific minimum height (8 cm) and is
firmly attached to the ground. It then turns
to face another direction and continues
mowing. If the impact sensor is triggered
too frequently, the mowing blade is also
5. Safety devices
Risk of injury!
If a safety device is found to be
defective, the machine must not be
operated. Consult a specialist
dealer; STIHL recommends STIHL
specialist dealers.
Pressing and holding the STOP
button also activates the disabling
device. (Ö 5.2)
Impacts against obstacles occur
with a certain force. Sensitive
obstacles, e.g. light objects such as
small flower pots, can therefore be
knocked over or damaged.
STIHL recommends removing
obstacles or blocking them off by
means of no-go areas. (Ö 12.9)
0478 131 9265 A - EN
5.5 Lifting protection
If the robotic mower is lifted by the hood,
mowing is stopped immediately. The
mowing blade comes to a standstill within
a few seconds.
5.6 Tilt sensor
If the permissible slope inclination is
exceeded during operation, the robotic
mower immediately changes its direction
of travel. In the event of a rollover, the self-
propulsion and mowing motor are
switched off.
5.7 Display illumination
The display illumination is activated during
operation. Thanks to this illumination, the
robotic mower is easily recognisable, even
in darkness.
5.8 PIN request
When the PIN request is activated, an
alarm signal sounds when the robotic
mower is lifted unless the PIN code is
entered within one minute. (Ö 11.16)
The robotic mower can only be operated in
conjunction with the docking station
supplied. A further docking station must be
linked with the robotic mower. (Ö 11.16)
5.9 GPS protection
The robotic mower is equipped with a GPS
receiver. When GPS protection is
activated, the owner of the machine is
notified if the machine is operated outside
the home area. The PIN code is also
requested on the display. (Ö 14.5)

6.6 Before initial operation
It must be ensured that all persons who
use the machine are familiar with the
instruction manual.
Carefully follow the instructions for
installing the docking station (Ö 9.1) and
perimeter wire (Ö 12.).
The perimeter wire and the power cable
must be securely fastened to the ground
so that they do not present a tripping
hazard. Avoid routing the perimeter wire
and power cable over edges (e.g. edges of
pathways or paving stones). When routing
the perimeter wire and power cable on
ground into which the supplied fixing pins
cannot be driven (e.g. paving stones,
pathways), a cable duct must be used.
Correct routing of the perimeter wire and
power cable must be regularly checked.
To prevent the risk of stumbling, always
drive in the fixing pins all the way.
Do not install the docking station in a place
where it is difficult to see and could
become a tripping hazard (e.g. around the
corner of a house).
If possible, install the docking station out of
the reach of pests such as ants or slugs –
in particular avoid the area around anthills
and composting units.
Areas in which the robotic mower cannot
operate safely (e.g. due to danger of
falling) must be blocked off through
appropriate routing of the perimeter wire.
STIHL recommends that the robotic
mower is only operated on lawns and
surfaced paths (e.g. paved drives).
The robotic mower does not detect any
sudden drops such as edges, steps,
swimming pools or ponds. If the perimeter
wire is routed along potential sudden
drops, a clearance of at least 1m must be
maintained between the perimeter wire
and the danger area for safety reasons.
Regularly inspect the area on which the
machine is to be used and remove any
sticks, stones, wires, bones and all other
foreign objects that could be thrown up by
the machine.
After installing the perimeter wire,
particularly remove all tools from the
mowing area. Broken or damaged fixing
pins must be removed from the lawn and
disposed of.
Regularly check the area to be mown for
uneven areas and level them out.
Never use the machine with damaged
safety devices or with safety devices
The switch and safety devices installed in
the machine must not be removed or
