The Robomow RS612 weighs 44 pounds (about 20 kilograms). It's 28 inches long, 25 inches wide and 12 inches tall (roughly 71 by 64 by 30 centimeters).
This power box plugs into an outlet and gives the base station power. You can mount the power box to your wall. The icons light up to show you the status of the Robomow.
You have to be close to the Robomow to access most of the features of the app. This is the warning you receive on the app if your Robomow is out of range.
The Robomow uses Bluetooth to connect to the iOS and Android-compatible app. You can use the app to remote control the mower.
You can control the Robomow's settings directly on the mower using the buttons surrounding the LCD screen.
Technical editor Steve Conaway secures the Robomow's base station to the ground. The robot lawnmower comes to the base station to charge its battery.
You have to install a perimeter wire around your yard that creates a boundary for the Robomow to follow.
You secure the perimeter wire to the ground with small black pegs Robomow includes with the mower. You don't have to bury the wire; grass eventually grows over it.
