2.2 How Robomow Works for You • First, you need to install a perimeter wire around the entire lawn and around protected areas within the lawn area. • The Perimeter Wire sets the boundaries for Robomow. The Perimeter Wire is laid on the edges of the lawn and around trees, plants, ponds and objects that you want to prevent Robomow to run into. • If the supplied wire is not sufficient, more wire can be purchased Perimiter Wire and spliced to the existing wire with a supplied connector. • Small pegs are used to fasten the Perimeter Wire into the Peg ground, below grass level. • The Perimeter Wire will gradually disappear under the growth of new grass until it will be invisible. • The Base Station is placed along the Perimeter Wire. It performs two basic functions: - Generate a signal along the Perimeter Wire. - Charge Robomow’s batteries. • The Power Box is connected between the Base Station and a 230V / 120V wall socket, using a 15m (50 ft.) long low voltage cable. • After completed the installation of the Perimeter Wire, Base Station, and the Power Box, and performing the One-Time Setup (needs to be performed before operating Robomow for the first time – detailed instructions are in the following chapters), Robomow will do all the mowing for you for during the entire season! • Robomow is a robotic lawn mower powered by a rechargable battery. It leaves its Base Station at scheduled mowing times. Robomow mows the lawn and then drives back to the Base Station to be charged and ready for its next scheduled mowing. • As soon as Robomow departs for mowing, the Base Station automatically triggers a special signal by the Perimeter Wire. This signal creates a virtual wall, visible only to Robomow. This signal keeps Robomow within the lawn boundaries, and prevents it from entering areas it was intended to skip or protect. • In order to prevent lawn’s damage at the Base Station area and in order to improve lawn’s coverage, Robomow will drive from the Base Station at a random distance (between 90cm to 120cm) and will randomly select an angle of departure between 40 to 90 degrees. Base Station and Power Box: Large trees: Robomow is allowed to bump into - Generates signal along the wire. them. at this size the objects do not require a - Charges Robomow’s battery. Perimiter Wire around them Robomow detects the signal and changes direction as it reaches the wire Perimiter wire as a virtual wall, visible only to Robomow Tree surrounded by a groove, ditch or flower beds requires a qire around it. 8

2.3 Robomow Features • Simple One-Time Setup – Robomow requires a simple one time setup, which can easily be done by the consumer. Robomow recognizes the wire using special sensors, and makes sure it always stays inside the designated area. Essential accessories are supplied with the product. • Edge Cutting – Unlike other robotic lawn mowers, Robomow is the only robotic mower that has a special Edge mode, in which it follows the perimeter wire for complete coverage of the lawn edges. Robomow is the only robotic mower to cut outside the wheels. • Strong Cutting System – Robomow’s extra sharp blade enables to perform the first EN cut of the season, when the grass is relatively high. • TurboMow Mode – TurboMow feature allows faster and stronger mowing of a high grass during the first cut of the season (see P026 in Section 6.4.2 for more information). • SmartMow Mode – SmartMow feature allows more efficient mowing operation through smooth and continuous turns at lawn’s edge (see P024 in Section 6.4.2 for more information). • Availability – The mowing width of Robomow (28cm / 11”) and the powerful cutting system help Robomow to finish the job very fast and leave your lawn free for the family to enjoy. • A Remote Control is available as an accessory and is used for driving Robomow to a separated zone, if necessary. It is also used for mowing small patches of lawn that cannot be reached in automatic operation. • Grasscycling – Robomow cuts the grass into very small clippings that are buried in the roots of the lawn, where they decompose and act like a natural fertilizer. Grass clippings contain 80-85% water and release valuable nutrients that return back into the MORE TIME LAWN FREE soil. It is the natural recycling of grass.

Chapter 3 – Planning Ahead Getting your lawn ready for Robomow is rather simple. As every lawn is unique, we recommend reading this chapter before starting to install the perimeter wire. Planning the wire route and drawing a sketch of the lawn, including all obstacles and Base Station location, will make it easier and will prevent mistakes during the setup. Scan and watch Robomow setup & operation video. Also available on Robomow website. Please complete reading this “Planning Ahead” chapter before you start the setup. It will guide you in finding the best locations for the Base Station, Power Box, and for the Perimeter Wire. The Perimeter Wire functions is an “invisible wall” for Robomow. It sets the boundaries of lawn zones by surrounding specific areas, as borders for the Robomow mowing. The Perimeter Wire is held to the ground by small pegs, supplied with Robomow. After set, the wire will becomes invisible under the growth of new grass. As soon as Robomow starts operating a signal that runs along the Perimeter Wire keeps Robomow within its working zones and away from preset demarcated areas. 3.1 Lawn Types: What does your lawn look like? There are 3 basic types of lawns: Some lawns are combinations of Main Zone more than one type. Your first task is to determine which type is yours. o Main Zone Only Sub Robomow will simply mow this lawn within its set boundaries. Zon e o Main Zone + Sub-Zone(s) Main Zone Robomow will mow the Main Zone and will move automatically to the Sub-Zone(s). o Separated Zone Sep arat ed-Z Robomow will mow each zone separately. Its movement one between zones is restricted. Thus, you will have to bring the mower from the Main Zone to the Separated Zone every time Main Zone you want to mow it. 3.1.1 “Main Zone Only” Type Lawn At least 3 meters The “Main Zone Only” lawn consists of one whole area. (10 ft.) wide It has no Sub-Zones and no Separated Zones. If you answer “yes” to all of the following questions, your lawn is a “Main Zone Only” type lawn: o Is your grass area one continuous zone? o Are all areas of your lawn wide enough for Robomow to navigate through effectively? (Min. 3 meters (10 ft.) wide at its narrowest point). Main Zone Only If your lawn does not match this description, read the next Sections to find the style of your lawn. If your lawn is “Main Zone Only”, you can skip to Section 3.3 of this chapter to determine the Base Station location. 10

3.1.2 “Main Zone + Sub-Zone(s)“ Type Lawn This type of lawn consists of more than one zone, where zones are connected by a narrow pass. Su b-Z In this type of lawn, Robomow will be able on e to drive from one zone to the other in order to mow the whole area. If you answer “yes” to all of the following Main Zone questions, your lawn is a “Main Zone + Sub- Main Zone Zone” type lawn: EN Main + Sub-Zone with a Narrow Pass o Is your grass area one continuous area? o Are parts of your lawn separated from the Main Zone? o Is there a Narrow Pass of at least 1m (3.3 ft.) for Robomow to drive between these zones? o Is this Narrow Pass firm, in one level and smooth (not stony, sandy or elevated)? For example: grass area, sidewalk, firm path, solid ground. Such additional areas are called Sub-Zones. If your lawn contains a Sub-Zone as defined in this section, refer to Section 6.4.2 (Add Sub-Zone – number p022 in the table). Defining Sub-Zone(s) will enable Robomow to drive through the Narrow Pass in order to get to a Sub-Zone and to mow both the Main Zone and its Sub-Zone(s) one zone at a time. If your lawn does not match this description, skip to the next Section 3.1.3 of this chapter: “Separate Zones”. 3.1.3 “Separated Zones” Type Lawn “Separated Zones” type lawn consists of two or more zones that are not connected. Robomow cannot drive between these zones. If you answer “yes” to at least one of the following questions, your lawn is of the “Separated Zones” type. o Are parts of your lawn separated by fences, sidewalks, or other objects that Robomow cannot pass? Separated Zone Separated Zone Or o Are parts of your lawn separated by a gravel path or similar material that may damage the mower blade? Or o Are the zones of your lawns joined Main MainZone Zone by a pass that is too narrow for Main Zone Robomow to drive through: less Main Zone than 1m (3.3 ft.) in width? Separated Zone Separated Zone Or o Are the zones of your lawn situated at lower or higher level? If your lawn contains a Separated Zone as defined in this section, refer to Section 6.4.2 (Add Separated Zone – number p014 in the table). If your lawn does not fit any of these descriptions, it is probably either a “Main Zone Only” or “Main Zone +Sub- Zone” type. Skip to Section 3.3 – Select Base Station and Power Box Location.  A lawn may consist of up to 2 Separated Zones.  The mower must be carried or driven to this area manually.  Any of the 3 types can be a combination of more than one type of lawn. 11

3.1.4 Types of Separated Zone setups: A Separated Zone smaller than 70 m² (750 ft²) o Separated area that is smaller Separated Zone Smaller than 70 m² (750 ft²) than 70 m² (750 ft²) can be covered in a single operation, thus, if possible, the separated area may be connected to the main area’s Perimeter Wire 2 Wires under same peg (have the signal come from the Main Base Station). Or o It may need its own separate Perimeter Wire. Base Station In that case, it will have to be connected to a Perimeter Switch (optional accessory – see Chapter 12 – Accessories). Or: A Separated Zone larger than 70 m² (750 ft²) Separated Zone larger than 70 m² (750 ft²) o If a separated area is larger than 70 m² (750 ft²), then it requires more than a single operation to Optional Power Box & cover the area; Base Station o In such case, an additional Base Station (optional accessory) should be installed in the Separated Zone; otherwise you will have to manually bring the mower several times to the Separated Zone, in order to complete the mowing of the area.. Main zone Power Box & Base Station 3.2 Select Base Station Location 3.2.1 Base Station Location Guidelines  Do not place the Base Station within 3 meters (10 ft.) after a corner (relevant for Internal Setup only – section 3.2.2)  The Base Station should be within 15m (50 ft.) M distance from a power outlet (230V / 120V). in .3  If the lawn has more than one zone, place the Base m co (1 rn 0f er Station within the largest zone. t) fro  Make the Base Station invisible to the street to m an avoid theft. y  Select a shady spot. This will extend battery lifetime.  Place the Base Station on a relatively level ground. Do not place it on a slope.  Place the Base Station away from sprinkler heads. 12

There are two options to set the Base Station: 3.2.2 Internal Setup (on the lawn perimeter) • Choose a place along the Perimeter Wire where you want to place the Base Station, based on the onditions detailed in paragraph 3.2.1. • Place the Base Station in the direction shown in the figure to the right. 3.2.3 External Setup (off the lawn perimeter): EN Scan the code to watch the video on how to install an external base. There are two types of External Setup: A. At a corner In this type of setup, the Base Station is located at one of the corners of the lawn, as shown in the figure at the (4”) right. 10cm • Choose a corner where you want to place the Base 5-4cm Station outside of the lawn area. ”) c m (4 • Place the Base Station, where its front side is touching . 10 Min 10cm (4”) the lawn edge or placed somewhere on the lawn. • Continue to lay the perimeter wire as shown in the figure on the right, where it continues at least 10cm (4”) beyond the Base Station and turns back towards the lawn at a distance of 10cm (4”) from the other wire. • The Base Station may be placed in a small shift to the right, in order to allow smooth entry of the mower to Main Zone the Base Station. • Later you will have the opportunity to adjust the Base Station position to confirm smooth entry. B. Outside the lawn • Choose a place outside the lawn where you want Robomow to dock and charge. • Confirm the path between the lawn and the outside Min. 10cm (4”) area is smooth with no height difference, so Robomow will not get stuck and will follow the wire smoothly. 5-4cm • The surface between the lawn and the Base Station should be hard (such as a sidewalk or rigid ground) and not sandy or stony, so Robomow will not slip or M in M 1. ax 8m (13 get stuck on it. 4m (6 ft) ft) • The area between the lawn and the Base Station Perimeter Island should be clear of obstacles and objects. 30cm • Lay the wire as shown in the figure to the right: 50 cm - Narrow path of 50cm (20”) width. 10cm (4”) (20 ”) - Square Perimeter Island of 30cm (12”) edges. 20” ) m( 50c - Island starts 50cm from the Perimeter Wire. - Keep a distance of 10cm (4”) between Perimeter Wire and the Island from both sides. - The front of the Base Station should be placed a minimum distance of 1.8m (6 ft.) from the Perimeter Wire and NOT more than 4m (13 ft.). 13

3.3 Select Power Box Location Consider the following in order to select the Power Box Power Box fixed to the wall location:  The Power Box will be connected to the Base Station using the 15m (50ft.) Extension Cable.  Select a suitable location for the Power Box to be mounted on a wall near a power outlet.  Locate it outside the lawn perimeter.  Select an easily accessed spot.  Select a dry and sheltered location. 15m (50ft) Extension  The Power Box is to be mounted vertically. Cable (low voltage) The Power Box is suitable for Outdoor use. Yet, it should be placed in a sheltered, dry and well ventilated spot. The Power Box should not be exposed to direct sunlight or rain. 3.4 Planning the Perimeter Wire Layout 3.4.1 Objects inside lawn  Objects such as flower beds, ponds, or small trees can be protected by creating “Perimeter Islands”, which are demarcated areas of the lawn, where Robomow should not enter.  In the areas where obstacles are grouped closely together, they should be demarcated by a single, continuous Perimeter Island.  Obstacles that are vertical, relatively rigid, and higher than 15 cm (6 inches), such as trees, phone or power poles, do not need Perimeter Island. Robomow will turn when it collides with these obstacles. 3.4.2 Slopes Slope on the perimeter  The Perimeter Wire can be laid across a slope that slants less than 10% (10cm rise per 1m). CAUTION! If the Perimeter Wire is laid across a slope steeper than 10%, there is a risk that the mower will slip and cross outside the wire, especially when the grass is wet’. However, if there is a barrier (e.g. fence or wall) Perimeter Slope that can protect the mower from slipping off, the Max. 10% Perimeter Wire can be set on that slope. 14

Slope inside the lawn  Robomow can mow areas inside the working area with a slope of up to 35% (35cm rise per 1m).  Tip: If the mower tilts off the ground while climbing a slope, it is too steep. Exclude this steep area from Robomow’s cutting area. In Lawn Slope 35% EN How to calculate the slope of your lawn? 100cm (3.3ft) Length Elevation 35cm (1.1ft) Max 35% slope How to calculate the slope of your lawn? 35cm (Elevation) 35% (slope) 100cm (Length) 3.4.3 Distances from the Edge (Pools, Ponds, Cliffs, etc.)  RoboRuler is used to measure the distance from the edge, where the wire is to be placed.  In certain cases, near bodies of water such as pools and ponds, or great height differences such as cliffs, it is required to maintain a greater distance from the Edge (see Section 4.2.2). 3.4.4 Interference with adjacent lawns In case there is another robotic mower (from the same or different manufacturer) working in an adjacent lawn, you need to keep at least 2 meters distance (6.5 ft.) from the perimeter wire of that lawn. 15

Chapter 4 – Initial Setup 4.1 Preparations Recommendations before you start During setup, you need to insert pegs into the ground. To complete this task smoothly, we recommend not to do it while Hammer Combination Piers the grass is high and to water it before starting. 4.1.1 Getting Ready Make sure all parts needed for setup are within your reach. Have the Robomow box nearby, so all items are available. Small flat and Philips Screwdrivers In addition, you will need the following tools: A hammer, small flat screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, Combination Pliers. 4.1.2 Installing the Power Box Mount the metal bracket onto a vertical surface with the provided screws. Make sure the narrow part with the holes facing up as shown in the figure to the right. • Place the Power Box above the metal bracket and slide it into place along the vertical surface. • Connect the Power Box to a regular power outlet (230V / 120V). 4.1.3 Charging the battery before the first operation You can charge the Robomow battery while running the setup Safety Switch of the Perimeter Wire. This will ensure that Robomow will be ready for operation when the setup is completed. • The power of the mower is switched off when shipped from the factory. Switch on the Safety Switch to power on the mower. • Connect the DC Cable coming from the Power Box to the Charging Socket at the rear side of Robomow. • Confirm the Battery LED on Robomow is blinking, which is an indication of charging. • Leave Robomow connected to the Power Box while completing the setup of the Perimeter Wire. Note! Your product comes with a minimal battery charge, which is only sufficient for performing the One-Time Setup. This initial charge does not allow performing a complete mowing operation 4.2 Perimeter Wire Setup Before you start the setup, you should have a plan for the Perimeter Wire layout and for the location of the Base Station. Your plan should consider the following: o What type of lawn areas does your lawn have? (Main Zone Only / Main + Sub-Zones / Separated Zones / combination of types). o Are there protected or excluded areas on the lawn? (Perimeter Islands). o Are there any slopes that Robomow should avoid? o Are there edges of pools, ponds, cliffs etc., which need an extra distance from the Perimeter Wire? 16

4.2.1 Starting Point: Perimeter Wire at the Base Station area. • Place the Base Station, according to your plan, as shown in the figure to the right. M om in a fr . 3 ny m co (1 rn 0 er ft) Do not place the Base Station within 3m (10 ft.) after a corner • Select the roll of wire with a green plot connector attached to the end. EN • Pull the plot connector and some wire out of the plastic covering. Do not remove the spool of wire from its covering. The plastic covering is the dispenser for the wire. • Peg the beginning of the wire to the ground, where the Base Station will be located. Pegs are supplied in the Robomow’s box. • Pull out 30 cm (12 inches) of wire and leave it loose near the Base Station location. Later, at the end of the setup, this part of the wire will close the Perimeter Wire loop. • Start laying the wire in an anticlockwise direction. • Continue to pull the Perimeter Wire out of its covering, laying it loosely as you walk along the lawn edge. Perimeter Wire Peg If you get to any area/object that needs care or special boundaries, make sure you carefully lay the Perimeter Wire as needed. The next sections deal with such special cases. 4.2.2 Laying the Perimeter Wire o The Perimeter Wire is secured to the ground by pegs supplied with Robomow. Initially insert pegs every few meters and at corners. At this early stage set a minimum number of pegs. Later, after testing the wire setup, you will insert all necessary pegs. o After uncoiling some wire, before inserting pegs, use 20cm (8”) the RoboRuler to determine the distance of the wire from the lawn edge or obstacles. • If the working area borders with a flat area, a flower bed, a small cliff (not more than 1 cm / 0.4”), or a small stair (up to 5 cm / 2”), the Perimeter Wire should be laid 20 cm (8 inches) inside the working area. Use the shorter distance of the RoboRuler to set the distance of the wire from the lawn edge. • If the edge is going though a sloped area (max 10% is allowed) or is bordered with high obstacles such as a wall or fence, the Perimeter Wire should be laid at a distance of 28 cm (11 inches) from the obstacle. Use the longer distance of the RoboRuler to set the distance of the wire from a wall. 28cm from Wall (11”) 17

• If the working area borders against a flat path that lies level with the lawn, it is possible to allow Robomow to run over the path. The Perimeter Wire should then be laid 10 cm (4 inches) from the edge of the path. • When the working area is divided by a flat path that is level with the lawn, it is possible to allow Robomow to run over the path. The Perimeter Wire can be laid under the pavement blocks or in the joint between them. Important! The mower must never run over gravel, mulch, or similar material, which can cause the mower to slip and damage the blade. 10cm (4”) IMPORTANT INFORMATION If the working area is near a swimming pool, watercourse, slope greater than 10%, precipice ft ) higher than 50cm (20 inches) or a public road, (4 m the Perimeter Wire must be supplemented with n 1.2 a fence or alike. The height must then be at least Mi 15cm (6 inches). This will prevent the mower from ending up outside the working area under any circumstances. Min 15cm (6”) If such a barrier exists, you may set the Perimeter Wire 28cm (11 inches) from the barrier. Perimiter Wire 28cm (11”) If there is no fence or the like, then lay the Perimeter Wire at minimum distance of 1.2m from the water. o Maintain a 45° angle in all left-turn corners when laying the wire along the perimeter. It is not necessary o 90 to maintain 45° angle on right-turn corners along the perimeter. o Continue laying the wire, according to your plan. Right turns Gradually pull the wire out of its dispenser and lay it loosely as you are moving in an anticlockwise direction. o 20cm 45 Left turns 18

4.3 Perimeter Wire within the Working Area 4.3.1 Hard Obstacles o Obstacles that can withstand a collision, for example, trees or bushes higher than 15 cm (6”), do not need to be demarcated by the Perimeter Wire. Robomow will turn when it collides with this type of obstacle. EN 4.3.2 Perimeter Islands o Use the Perimeter Wire to demarcate areas inside the working area by creating islands around obstacles that cannot withstand a collision, for example, flower beds and fountains. o Continue uncoiling the wire, moving from the edge towards the protected object. o Peg the Perimeter Wire around the protected object in a clockwise direction. o Complete bordering the island and return to the spot where you left the lawn’s edge o The wires leading to the Island and from it should be parallel and touching. Therefore, peg both wires, to and from the island, together with the same pegs. o Robomow will not recognize these two wires. It will mow over them as if they do not exist. o Robomow will recognize the single blocking wire around the Perimeter Island and will not enter this area. Perimiter Wire Position 2 Wires under same peg Perimiter Wire Direction of setup: Min. distance between Clockwise around islands: 1m (3.3ft) obstacle Otherwise, demarcate jointly as one island CAUTION ! Setting the Perimeter Wire anticlockwise around an obstacle will cause the mower to drive into the island. Keep the following distances when setting Perimeter Islands: - The minimum distance of the Perimeter Wire from the protected area should be 28 cm (11 inches). - If you need to protect a thin object, set the minimum radius of the Island to 35 cm (15 inches). - Maintain a minimum of 1m (3.3 ft.) between adjacent m 28 cm islands. 28 c - Maintain a minimum of 1m (3.3 ft.) between island wire and the Perimeter Wire. - If protected objects are grouped closely together, demarcate them as a single Perimeter Island. Min 1m Note! A Perimeter Island should either be rectangular or round. 19

4.3.3 Setting a Narrow Pass A Narrow Pass is defined as a path that connects two zones of the lawn. The path enables Robomow to drive between the zones while following the wire, but prevents the mower from crossing between them while mowing the inner area of the zones. The pass has to be at least 1.2 m (4 ft.) wide to allow Robomow to drive through it. If the pass is wider than 2 m (6.5 ft.), There is NO need for any special setting of the Perimeter Wire. Skip to section 4.3.4. Otherwise, you need to follow the instructions given below in order to set up a Narrow Pass. Scan the code to view a video explaining how to set a narrow pass If the passage is NARROWER than 1.5m and longer then 2m, the following wire installation needs to be done – “dual-square installation”: 1. Define the entry to the Narrow Pass – the point you want the mower to start driving towards the Sub-Zone. 2. 50 cm (20 inches) from the Narrow Pass entry, set a Perimeter Island (refer to 4.3.2) as shown in the picture above. 3. Continue to lay the wire along the edge at a proper distance (depending on the edge type) until coming back to the Narrow Pass entry from the Sub-Zone side. 4. Measure 50cm (20 inches) from that point and lay another Perimeter Island with the same dimensions. 5. After completing the setup of the wire in the Sub-Zone, make sure you keep 10 cm (4 inches) between the wire and the islands on the way back to the Main Zone. 10cm 28cm Sub-Zone m Mi 50c n. 50 cm Main-Zone m 10cm 50c 2 Wires under same peg The above setup allows Robomow to drive along the wire to reach the Sub-Zone. However, while mowing each zone individually, it will not cross over to the other zone. 20

If the passage is WIDER than 1.5m: If the Narrow Pass is wider than 1.5m (5 ft.), and you want Robomow to mow the area inside the Narrow Pass, then you can set the wire as shown in the figure below. Such a setup allows the mower to mow inside the Narrow Pass while mowing the inner part of the lawn, but prevents it from crossing between the zones. 1. Define the entry to the Narrow Pass – the point you want the mower to start driving towards the Sub-Zone. 2. Set an Perimeter Island at the middle of the Narrow Pass (refer to 4.3.2) as shown in the picture above and keep a distance of 10 cm (4 inches) from the Perimeter Wire. EN 3. The island dimensions should be 28 cm (11”) along the side and as wide as needed, when keeping 10 cm (4 inches) from both sides. 4. After completing the setup of the wire in the Sub-Zone, make sure you keep 10 cm (4 inches) between the wire and the island on the way back to the Main Zone. 28cm 10cm Sub-Zone 5 0cm Main-Zone Min. 2 Wires under 10cm same peg Good VS Bad Narrow Pass: The following drawing illustrates a good (flat) vs bad (bumpy) narrow passage. Main Zone Main Zone Sub Zone Sub Zone 21

4.3.4 Using Sub-Zones as Remote Starting Points There are cases when a Main Zone has two or more big parts connected by a wide (more than 2 meters) passage, like a front and a back yards. In order to ensure proper coverage of all Main Zone’s parts in such cases, you may want the mower to occasionally start mowing at some specific point (other than the Base Station) along the perimeter wire. We call these points – Remote Starting Points. Setting a Remote Starting Point can be done by defining (adding) a Sub-Zone at the desired place (see section 6.4.2, P022-P023). Note: During the Sub-Zone definition process you are asked to specify the area of a newly added sub-zone. In case of a Remote Starting Point, this area should be the area of the remote part of the Main Zone. You need to reduce Main Zone’s area setting accordingly (see section 6.4.1). See the example below. This process actually defines the probability (or the frequency) of departures from each starting point (when for the Main Zone the Base Station itself is a starting point). Example: Let’s say your Main Zone is 1000m2. It At least 2 meters (6.5 ft.) wide has a back yard (400m2), where the Base Station is installed, and a front yard (600m2). In order to define a Remote Starting point for the front yard, start a process of adding a Sub-Zone. Once well inside the front yard, set the area of the newly added Sub-Zone to 600 and immediately reduce (see section 6.4.1) the area of the Main Zone to 400m2. Thus, we now have 40% probability for the mower to start from the Base Station to cover the back yard, 60% probability Main Zone to start from the Remote Starting point in favor of the front yard, as demonstrated Remote Starting Point in the following drawing: 4.4 Fastening Perimeter Wire to the Ground o Before starting to lay the Perimeter Wire, it is recommended to cut the grass where the wire is to be laid. It will then be easier to attach the wire to the ground. The risk that the mower will damage the wire during the operation is reduced. o It is not necessary to bury the Perimeter Wire, though you may do so, up to 5 cm (2 inches) deep. o Pull the wire tight while hammering the peg all the way into the ground. o Consider burying the wire at exposed areas, such as pavements or other areas with a frequent foot traffic. WARNING ! Protect your eyes! Protect your hands! Use proper eye protection and wear appropriate work gloves when hammering the pegs. Hard or dry ground may cause pegs to break when driving them in. o Use a hammer to insert the pegs into the ground. o Insert the pegs at distances that will keep the wire down below the grass level and prevent the wire from becoming a tripping hazard (approximately 75 cm / 30” between pegs). • The wire and the pegs will gradually become invisible under the growth of new grass. 22

o If an additional wire is required in order to complete the setup, connect it using the water-proof wire connectors supplied with Robomow. (See Section 11.6 – Splicing the Perimeter Wire). Use only the wire connectors supplied with Robomow. Neither Twisted cables, nor a screw terminal insulated with insulation tape are a satisfactory splice. EN Soil moisture may cause the conductors to oxidize, which will later cause a broken circuit. 4.5 Back at the Base Station – Completing the Perimeter Wire Setup Once the Perimeter Wire loop is completed and pegged to the ground, complete the setup by attaching the beginning and the end of the Perimeter Wire to the Base Station Head. o Peg the two Perimeter Wires down to the ground using the same peg leaving enough loose wire. o Trim the end without the connector to make both of equal length and twist the two wires. o Twist the two wires. A proper twist of the wires is crucial for a robust docking of Robomow at the Base Station. o Strip back 5 mm (1/4 inches) of insulation from the wire end. o Insert the end of the wire without the connector into the hole of the connector. Use a small flat screwdriver to tighten and secure this wire into the connector. Small flat screwdriver 23

4.6 Placement and connection of the Base Station o Place the Base Station on the Perimeter Wire as shown in the figure to the right. o Align the center of the Base Station on the wire. o Connect the green connector of the perimeter wire to the Base Station as shown below, while keeping the right polarity: o After the Base Station has been positioned, insert 2 stakes into the Base Station holes as shown in the figure to the right. Only after the Base Station position has been tested during the One-Time Setup process (see Section 5.2), you will be able to insert the remaining two stakes. 4.7 Connecting the Power Box In order to find a proper location for the Power Box, please refer to Section 3.3. For the Power Box installation instructions please refer to Section 4.1.2. Laying and Fastening Extension Cable Safety – Avoid injury! The Extension Cable from the Power Box to the Base Station should be securely fastened to the ground! It should never present a tripping hazard. The Extension Cable should cross ONLY over soft surfaces. It should not cross over hard surfaces (e.g. Sidewalk, driveway) where it cannot be securely fastened. 24

4.7.1 At the Power Box Location: • Connect the DC Cable from the Power Box to Automatic the 15 m (50 ft.) Extension Cable. Docking Indicator Operation • Connect the Power Box to a regular power outlet (230V / 120V). ) The Docking Indicator will light up if the mower is in the Base Station. ) The Operating Indicator will light up if the mower is not in EN the Base Station.

4.8 Setup in a Non-Base Zone The Perimeter Switch MUST be Mounted A Non-Base Zone is an area of the lawn that is not connected vertically in order to to a Base Station. maintain its’ water resistance A Perimeter Switch should be installed in these areas. When necessary, the Perimeter Switch can be easily moved to other zones. 4.8.1 Determining the Perimeter Switch Location Consider the following in order to install the Perimeter Switch at an optimal location: Wires leading from the • The Perimeter Switch is to be installed outside the lawn to the Perimeter perimeter of the Non-Base Zone. Switch are adjacent and touching. • Select a dry and sheltered location. • The Perimeter Switch is to be mounted vertically. • The Perimeter Switch is supplied with an indoor power supply. Choose a location close to a regular power outlet (230V / 120V). Note: a rechargeable battery for the Perimeter Switch is available as an accessory (See Chapter 12 – Robomow Accessories). 4.8.2 Perimeter Switch placing options • The Perimeter Switch connector is easily connected and disconnected. It allows for quickly switching from one zone to another. • You may use the large stake, attached to the back of the Perimeter Switch, to easily insert it in and out of the ground. • You may mount the Perimeter Switch on a vertical surface, such as a wall or deck railing. Use the three marks on the back of the Perimeter Switch cover. 4.8.3 Laying out the Perimeter Wire The perimeter wire setup in a Base and Non-Base Zone are the same, except for the starting point: • The Perimeter Switch is placed out of the area (at least 1 meter / 3.3 ft. from the lawn). • Start to lay the Perimeter Wire from the Perimeter Switch location. t) (3f • Lay the Perimeter Wire from the Perimeter Switch to the 1m n. Mi lawn. • Start laying the wire in anticlockwise direction. 26

• Once completing the Perimeter Wire loop, lay the wire back 2 wires under the towards the Perimeter Switch. same peg • At the end of the Perimeter Wire loop, you have now two wires. Lay the two loose wires in the direction of the Perimeter Switch location and peg them to the ground using a single peg for both. EN 4.8.4 At the Perimeter Switch’s location: • Trim the ends of the loose wire to equal length and twist them together. • Strip 5mm (0.2 inches) of insulation from the wire without the plot connector. • Insert this wire end into the free hole in the connector and tighten the screws. Small flat screwdriver • Plug the perimeter wire connector into the Perimeter Switch. 27

• Hold the Perimeter Switch and squeeze its side tabs (1) to remove it from the back cover (2). 2 1 • Connect the Power Supply plug to the Perimeter Switch board. Replace the cover. • Connect the power supply to a regular power outlet (230V / 120V). ! IMPORTANT ! The Power Supply is for indoor use ONLY.

IMPORTANT ! To restart the One-Time Setup process press and hold STOP + Settings + Left arrow buttons together for more than 4 seconds. This will invoke Factory Defaults (“Out of the Box” settings). 5.2.7 After Setup is Completed Once the wire setup is complete, drive additional pegs at a distance of approximately 0.75 m (2.5 ft.) apart. • Use additional pegs in areas where there are bumps or dips in the lawn. If needed, purchase extra pegs. • Inspect the wire installation for tripping hazards. From this point on Robomow is ready to be charged. Once fully charged it will automatically mow your lawn. Note! The first charging may take longer then usual (up to 24 hours). 31

Chapter 6 – Robomow Operation 6.1 Automatic Operation o Once the One-Time Setup is finished, Robomow will be set to perform automatically the following cycle of mowing operations: - When the battery is fully charged, Robomow will automatically depart from the Base Station. - It will mow the lawn. - It will start searching for the Base Station, when the battery level gets low (Robomow will not mow when it is searching for the Base Station). - It will recharge the battery and get ready for the next scheduled operation. - It will continue mowing until it completes the required number of mowing hours (end of a Mowing Cycle). Note: Robomow mows the Edge of the entire lawn only on the first mowing operation of each Mowing Cycle. In the rest of operations Robomow mows the lawn without the Edge. When Mowing Frequency (p001 in Section 6.4.2) is set to HIGH, Robomow will mow the Edge twice a week. o The required mowing time for a single mowing cycle is automatically derived from the Area setting for your lawn. o In case the required mowing time within a mowing cycle needs to be adjusted (increased/decreased) to achieve better mowing results, it can be done using the Mowing Hours menu – see Section 6.4.2. o Robomow usually performs several consecutive mowing operations until it completes a full mowing cycle required for the lawn. After completing a mowing cycle Robomow will rest until the next cycle should begin. The interval between mowing cycles is defined by the Mowing Frequency menu – see Section 6.4.2. The default setting is to perform two complete mowing cycles per week (Medium Mowing Frequency) o Robomow stays in the Base Station during the default Inactive Time (All day Sunday and nighttime daily 23:00 to 06:00). Inactive Time may be changed – see Section 6.4.1.3. Note! Robomow has the power to mow high grass. However when mowing high grass during the first use or the first mowing of the season, initially you will see uneven patches of grass. Please be patient as it may take a few days to one week to overcome and bring the lawn to an even height and consistency. 6.2 Operating Panel Operating Panel and buttons: Days of the week User / Error messages Mo Battery and Red lit constantly – Low Battery Tu We Th Fr Sa Su Mower is in the Charging Green blinking – Charging Base Station AM indicator Green lit constantly – Fully Charged indicator Day and Time Area setting indicator setting indicator Mowing Hours (%) Rain Sensor Inactive Time setting indicator setting indicator 32

Inactive operating times can be set for specific day(s) of the week, and for specific hours for all days in the week. Inactive Day(s) defines the day(s) when the mower will be inactive (Default: Sunday). Inactive Hours define the hours when Robomow will not mow and stays in the Base Station (Default: 23:00-06:00) IMPORTANT! It is required to go through the entire Inactive Days and Hours sequence in order to save the settings. Pressing STOP before completing the whole sequence will not save the settings. To change the Inactive Time, it is required to perform the following steps: • Press the ‘Settings’ button 3 times until the ‘Inactive Time’ icon is constantly lit. • The current Inactive Day(s) will constantly lit. • Press the OK button; ‘Mon’ will start blinking. - Press the RIGHT arrow to scroll to the day you want to set. - Press ‘OK’ to toggle between ‘Active’ and ‘Inactive’ options for that day: The LED is lit – ‘Inactive Day’ (mower will stay in the Base Station all day). The LED is off – available day for mowing. Press the RIGHT arrow to scroll to the next day you want to set • Scroll through all the days to the right until the ‘Inactive Hours’ will start blinking. • First set the time, at which the Inactive Hours start and press ‘OK’. Then set the time at which the Inactive Hours will end. • Robomow will not operate during the Inactive Hours throughout all days of the week. • If too many days/hours have been deactivated relative to the zone area, then ‘E8’ (Decrease Inactive Time) will be displayed – you need to decrease the number of inactive time so that the mower will have enough time to mow your lawn. • To set the ‘Inactive Hours’ to ‘Off’ set the same time for the start and the end (i.e.: 00:00 to 00:00). • Only one window of Inactive Hours can be set in the Basic Settings. To open an additional window of Inactive Hours use the Robomow App. 34

6.4.1.4 Area – Update the size of the lawn in case it has been changed. • Press the ‘Setting’ button 4 times until the Area icon is blinking. • Scroll to change the area and press ‘OK’ to confirm. • If more than one zone is defined, then first scroll to select the zone you want to edit and set the area for that zone as described above.

Use the arrows to scroll to the setting you want to change, and then press OK. • Use the arrow button to change the setting and press OK to confirm. • Scroll to change additional menu options or press STOP to go back to the main display. Below are the Advanced Settings options: Screen Setting Description Options • Controls the frequency of mowing cycles in a particular zone of your lawn. • The default mowing frequency is Medium (equivalent to two mowing cycles in a week). It means that Robomow will complete the entire mowing of your lawn twice a week. • The numbers in the menu represent the following values of mowing frequency: 1 – LOW (one mowing cycle in a week) 2 – MEDIUM (two mowing cycles in a week) 3 – HIGH (equivalent to daily mowing) • The ‘Mowing Frequency’ option is only available for zones where a Mowing base station is installed. If you have defined at least one seprated P001 Frequency zone with a base station (see menus P013 and P014), then you 1/2/3 (Default = 2) will be prompted to select the relevant zone before changing the setting (L1 stands for the Main Zone, L2 stands for Separated Zone A, etc.) • During off-season when the growth rate of the grass is slower, it is recommended to change the Mowing Frequency to ‘LOW’. This resting period helps the grass and prolongs the lifetime of the mower. • Grass growth rate changes during the year (depending on temperature, grass type, fertilizing etc.). • High fertilization and favorable weather conditions may cause the grass to grow faster. In such cases, set the ‘Mowing Frequency’ option to High. 35

Screen Setting Description Options • In case there is a large perimeter island (a swimming pool, a pond, a large flower bed, etc.) in a particular zone, it is recommended to set this setting to On. This will prevent the mower from following the wire Islands around such island, while returning to the Base Station. P002 (Default = OFF) • When the Islands feature is set to On, the mower will execute a On/OFF special method of searching for the Base Station. As a result it may take the mower more time to arrive to the Base Station. • See also menu P006 below. • When Robomow completes its operation, or when the ‘Home’ button instructs it to Go To Base, it drives itself to the Base Station. • Robomow drives along the Perimeter Wire with a dynamic offset (not Near Wire Follow centered) to prevent wheel tracks along the same path. This return P003 (Default = ON) behavior can be turned off. On/OFF • This menu is not available for RC304u and RC304 Pro models. • For all other models, the Near Wire Follow feature can be enabled and configured for a Sub-Zone as well. • The maximum distance Robomow will drive from the wire when returning to the Base Station. • The distance does not represent actual units of measurement. • The offset Distance values range from 1 to 12. They represent different distances from the wire. Max Near Wire • The higher the Distance setting, the smaller the probability of tracks Follow Distance along the perimeter. P004 (Default = • Perimeter Islands that are relatively close to the Perimeter Wire or 1-12 changed based on narrow passages may prevent the mower to complete its drive to the the lawn area) Base Station with ‘Near Wire Follow’ mode. In such cases decrease the distance to allow the mower to complete the drive to the Base Station. • This menu is not available for RC304u and RC304 Pro models. • For all other models, the Near Wire Follow feature can be enabled and configured for a Sub-Zone as well. • The minimum distance Robomow will drive from the wire when returning to the Base Station. Min Near Wire • The larger the number, the bigger the distance the mower will drive P005 Follow Distance from the wire while returns to the Base Station. 1-5 (Default = 1) • This menu is not available for RC304u and RC304 Pro models. • For all other models, the Near Wire Follow feature can be enabled and configured for a Sub-Zone as well. • Enables to test the mower in the max ‘Near wire Follow Distance’ that is defined in menu P004. Near Wire Follow • If the mower is not able to complete the drive in ‘Near Wire’ mode P006 Test smoothly, then it is recommended to reduce the max distance set in menu P004. • This menu is not available for RC304u and RC304 Pro models. • The Rain Sensor feature halts operation on rainy or highly humid weather. • This is recommended for the health of the lawn. However, mowing wet grass does not present any technical problem. Rain Sensor Note! It may take a few minutes before Robomow detects rainy or P007 (Default = On) humid conditions. This is done in order to avoid false-detections. As On/OFF soon as the mower detects rain, it halts current mowing operation and starts searching for the Base Station. When the ‘Islands’ feature is set to On (see menu P002 above), the mower will execute a special method of searching for the Base Station. As a result it may take the mower more time (up to 20-30 minutes) to arrive to the Base Station. 36

Screen Setting Description Options • This menu defines Rain Sensor’s sensitivity. • The numbers in the menu represent the following levels of sensitivity: Rain Sensor 1 – LOW P008 Sensitivity 2 – MEDIUM 1/2/3 (Default = 2) 3 – HIGH • The higher the Sensitivity setting, the more sensitive Robomow is to rain detection. • Edging is a special mode, in which Robomow follows the perimeter EN wire for complete and accurate mowing of the lawn edges. • In lawns where the edge is not maintained well and the mower fails Edging On/Off to complete the drive along the edge of the lawn, it is recommended P009 On/OFF (Default = ON) to set Edging to ‘Off’. • Setting Edging to ‘Off’ disables Edging mode in automatic departures from the station, but still allows edge-mowing when pressing the ‘Edge’ mode button on the operating panel. • The Child Lock feature locks the buttons to prevent unintended Child Lock operation, especially by children and pets.

Chapter 11 – Maintenance and Storage 11.1 General Instructions • Always switch off the Safety Switch of Robomow® before checking/ cleaning/ working on Robomow® or replacing the blade. Never attempt to service or adjust the mower while it is in operation. • Check and clean Robomow® regularly and replace worn parts to improve performance and operation and to ensure a longer lifetime of your product. • In case of abnormal vibrations, stop the mower, switch off the Safety Switch and check for any damage of the blade. Replace worn/damaged blade to preserve balance. If vibration continues, call for service. EN • Use only the original equipment and accessories. It is not permitted to modify the original design of Robomow®. All modifications are made at your own risk. 11.2 Battery Maintenance and Disposal • The battery is maintenance-free, but has a limited lifetime of 2-4 years. Battery life is dependent on the season length and how many hours Robomow® is used. Thus, it is recommended to change the ‘Mowing Frequency’ (Section 6.4.2 – P001 in the table) when the growth rate of the grass is slower to prolong the lifetime of the mower and the battery. • Refer to Section 8.2 for more information about out of season battery maintenance. • Disposing of the Old Battery Pack IMPORTANT! Do not place used batteries in your household trash. The battery must be collected, recycled, or disposed of in an environmentally sound manner. Return the old power pack to an approved battery recycler. 11.3 Winter Storage and Service • Robomow® - Clean Robomow® before putting it away for the winter storage. - Follow the instruction for Out of Season Charging in Section 8.2. - Store the mower in a dry area, preferably at room temperature. • Base Station - No winter storage is required for a Base Station. It can be left on the lawn during the winter period. • Winter Service - To allow better maintenance and to keep Robomow® in a good condition, it is recommended to bring your Robomow® to a certified Robomow® dealer for service prior to winter storage. - Winter Service includes operations like cleaning mower’s parts and mowing deck, checking for worn parts (such as blade, drive wheels and other moving parts) and replacing them if required, testing mower’s functions and safety components, checking the battery, and uploading a latest software version, possibly including newly added features. 11.4 Maintenance of the Mowing Deck Robomow is a dedicated mulching mower. It may accumulate clippings under the mowing deck, particularly when mowing wet or damp grass. Warning! Severe injury hazard! Always turn the Safety Switch Off before lifting the mower. The blade is very sharp. It can cause severe cuts or lacerations. Always wear heavy work gloves when working with or around the blade. NEVER, use a damaged or a broken blade. Use only a sharp blade. 51

• Inspect the underside of the mower periodically. Clean if necessary. • Carefully scrape the collected grass debris from under the mowing deck. - Most grass accumulation can be removed using a small wooden stick or similar object. - You may remove the blade to gain better access to the mowing chambers. IMPORTANT! Do not place the mower upside down. Instead, lean the mower against a surface to gain access to the mowing deck area. IMPORTANT! NEVER use a water hose or any type of liquid to clean the underside of the mower. Liquids can damage components. Use only damp or wet cloth to wipe the surface clean after scraping. 11.5 Maintenance of the Blade • Examine the cutting blade for damage periodically. Safety Switch • Use only a sharp blade. Replace any damaged blade. • Replace the blade once a year between seasons. CAUTION! ALWAYS TURN THE SAFETY SWITCH OFF BEFORE SERVICING BLADE! IMPORTANT! After turning off the Safety Switch always reset the current day and time. Failure to do so may result in non- intentional operation of the Robomow. IMPORTANT! Sharpening is not allowed, since it may create unbalance. To remove the blade: - Insert the clamp side of the Blade Removal Tool into the open slits beside the locking tabs on either side of the blade. - Turn the Blade Removal Tool slightly so that the clamp resides on top of the locking tabs on either side. - Squeeze the handle of the Blade Removal Tool. The locking tabs on each side of the blade will be pressed (1). - Pull the blade assembly off, away from the mower (2) - When reinstalling the blade, line up the mating splines and push until a firm click is heard, indicating a proper seating of the blade onto the shaft. 52

11.6 Splicing the Perimeter Wire If the Perimeter Wire needs to be spliced, use a connector supplied in the Robomow box. It is waterproof and gives a reliable electrical connection. IMPORTANT! Before slicing the Perimeter Wire, disconnect the PowerBox from the power outlet. 1. Insert both wire ends in the connector at left-most and right- EN most positions. 2. Confirm that the wires are fully inserted into the connector. 3. Use a pair of pliers to press down the button on top of the connector. The button should be fully pressed, without damaging the connector. IMPORTANT! Neither twisted cables, nor a screw terminal insulated with insulation tape are a satisfactory splice. Soil moisture will cause such conductors to oxidize and will later lead to a broken circuit. 11.7 Maintenance of the Base Station Area • Keep the Base Station entrance and area clean of leaves, sticks, twigs or any other debris that usually accumulates in such areas. • NEVER spray water directly towards the Base Station. • Be careful when trimming around the Base Station with a powered weed trimmer as damage to the Extension Cable may occur. • In the event of damage to any part of the Extension Cable, stop the use of the mower and the Base Station. Disconnect the Extension Cable and replace it. 11.8 Lightning storm Warning! To reduce the risk of damage to components in the case of a lightning storm, disconnect the Perimeter Wire from the Base Station /Perimeter Switch and the Power Box 230V/120V plug from the power outlet. 53

Chapter 13 – Tips for maintaining your lawn Robomow® – Lawn care has never been so easy Best time to mow Mow your lawn when the grass is dry. This prevents the clippings from clumping and leaving piles on the lawn. Mow it late in the day rather than during the heat of the day. EN Mowing frequency Mow often in order to produce short, small clippings. During the active growing season the mowing frequency should be increased to once every 3-5 days, before the grass is too long. Short clippings decompose quickly and will not cover the grass surface. If the grass gets too high, raise the cutting height, mow, and then gradually lower it over several mowings. Cutting Height Follow the “1/3 rule”. Mow no more than 1/3 of the length of the grass. Proper mowing will produce short clippings that will not cover up the grass surface. You may have to cut the lawn more frequently, or double cut, when the lawn is growing fast, such as in the spring. Grasscycling Grasscycling reduces the amount of water needed by lawns since the clippings consist for about 80 – 85% of water. Grasscycling slows evaporation at the soil surface, and conserves water. Most lawns need less water when Grasscycling. Watering Water your lawn between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. in the morning, so water has time to soak into the soil before the heat of the sun causes evaporation. Your lawn needs 1 to 1-1/2” (3-4cm) of water weekly. Deep watering allows grass to develop a deep root system, enabling the lawn to resist disease and drought. Do not over water Too much water is not only wasteful but can also increase turf growth, which requires more frequent mowing. Let the soil partially dry out between watering. Water when the top two inches of soil have dried out. Use an object such as a screwdriver to probe your soil and measure the depth of the moisture. Fertilization Grasscycling reduces the amount of lawn fertilizer needed because the clippings provide about 1/4 of a lawn’s annual needs. Blade Keep your mower blade sharp. A sharp blade provides a clean, safe, and efficient cut. A dull mower blade will tear and shred the tips of the grass, which can provide an entry for disease organisms and weaken the grass plant. It is recommended to replace the mower blade once a year. Thatch Clippings and thatch are simply not connected. As mentioned previously, grass clippings consist for approximately 80-85 percent of water with only small amounts of lignin, and they also decompose rapidly. A small amount of thatch (approximately 1/2 inch) is actually beneficial to a lawn. Grass clippings protect your lawn’s root system from heat and water loss. 55
