Gone are the days of walking endlessly up and down pushing a lawnmower. Thanks to the iMow, you can sit back and relax while it cuts the lawn for you. Buying the iMow is easy but what can be hard is installing it. The installation process is the most important aspect in relation to achieving the best cutting results possible. Don’t worry we are here to help you by taking you through the necessary steps to install the Viking iMow. Here is everything you need to install your docking station, perimeter wire and iMow to perfection.
Before you do anything, simply make sure your lawn is clean, tidy and free of any toys, objects and debris like twigs and leaves. Make sure your grass is cut to an acceptable length which tends to be a length no longer than 10mm. When these minor details have been checked off the checklist, you can proceed to the more important parts of the process.
2: Plan The Layout/Position Your Perimeter Wire
You will need to plan the layout for your perimeter wire, the best course to take through your lawn. Create islands around obstacles you want to stay clear of. You also need to plan and determine the best position for your iMows charging station. Ideally somewhere flat and in a middle ground which can be accessed from all angles. Stay away from sprinklers and near to a power outlet. Lay your perimeter wire at a reasonable distance from the edge of where you want to cut. The perimeter wire must be laid flat.
3: Program & Charge
Then place your iMow in the charging station to start charging our iMow so it builds up a charge. Set your settings on the machine to your preference like the cutting height and time settings, these can be changed whenever you want using the control panel. Do not cut any corners to save time as this will only result in your lawn suffering.
4: Detailed Check Of Installation & Make Any Adjustments Where Necessary
It is worthwhile checking your installation after you are confident it is completed. Take a step back, have a walk around your perimeter wire and make sure your settings are set to your liking and appropriate to how you want the lawn cut. Make any necessary adjustments before beginning to use the iMow mower.
5: Sit Back & Watch Your iMow Work
Once you have done all the above steps, you are good to go. It is now time to let your robotic mower go to work and do the hard work for you while you sit back and relax. If you are experiencing any problems with your iMow make sure to contact your Viking dealer for further assistance on the issue.
