Best Robot Mower: Which Stihl iMow Is Best For You?

The Best Robot Mower is the best one for the task at hand. At Douglas Forest and Garden, we believe in the right tool for the job. Not everyone needs the newest, fastest, most powerful gadget. Sometimes less is more. So with that in mind, let’s talk about Stihl’s range of robot mowers

Stihl is one of our go-to manufacturers for professional and domestic gardening equipment. They have superior quality in everything they do, with robust materials built to last. Their robot mower range is no exception.  Stihl has a range of six different robot mowers ranging from entry-level for small gardens to a more professional level for large lawns.

The Best Robot Mower for Small-Medium Sized Gardens

The Stihl RMI 422 is the entry-level robot mower which can maintain lawns up to 800 square metres in size. Yet it’s still packed with nifty features. Once you install it, it’ll mow, recharge and schedule itself automatically. As with the other models, it mulches the grass rather than collecting it. Its cutting height can be adjusted between 2-6 centimetres.

The Stihl RMI 632 can cover almost four times more than the entry-level robot thanks to a much larger lithium-ion battery. Aside from that, it shares most of the same features. It has the same cutting height of 2-6 centimetres. Its cutting width is about 33 percent larger than the 422 at 28 centimetres versus the 422’s 20cm. Its larger battery adds an extra five kilos to its weight so that the 632 is fourteen kilos versus the 422’s nine.

The Stihl 632 can cover the largest area while also satisfying gadget lovers. The 632 allows you to control the iMow using a smartphone app. This lets you change your mowing plan, check on its status, or tell it to delay a mowing session if it’s not a convenient time (Sunday mornings for example!).

As you know, robotic mowers aren’t toys (at least not toys for children). So during its active times, young children, bystanders and animals need to be kept clear of the working area. Please refer to the operating instructions for further information.
