iMow™ Robotic Mower The RMI 422 P iMow™ robotic lawn mower is perfectly at home on small lawns, around pools and even yards with steep slopes or a lot of corners. It can mow lawns of up to a quarter acre in just a few hours. The RMI 422 P is particularly maneuverable and will cover every last corner of your lawn, thanks to its compact dimensions and 7.8-inch cutting width. Using its tilt sensors, iMow adapts its speed automatically on uphill and downhill gradients. The RMI 422 P can handle slopes up to 22 degrees. The RMI 632 P iMow robotic lawn mower can handle large lawns of up to one acre with ease. With its powerful battery and 11-inch cutting width, the RMI 632 P can mow up to 150 minutes per charge. The removable control panel of the RMI 632 P offers easy and comfortable programming, without having to bend down to reach the controls. The RMI 632 P can be programmed from the control panel when it is removed. The iMow works in accordance with a pre-programmed mowing plan, while still being able to react to changing conditions. Within a set timeframe called Active Time, the iMow decides whether or not to mow. For example, if it’s raining, the sensor tells iMow not to mow and to catch up on the lost mowing time later in the week. For rainy climates, iMow is capable of mowing in the rain and the rain sensor can be deactivated. iMow is equipped with a variety of sensors. As soon as someone attempts to lift it or tip it, the mowing blade is designed to stop. A user’s defined PIN number can be set so that iMow’s menu can only be accessed after entering it. The PIN number cannot be changed—even if the battery is removed or the unit is reset—to reduce the possibility of theft. iMow mows so quietly, your neighbors will hardly notice it’s there. Because iMow is so quiet, you can program it to mow at night. Powered by an advanced Lithium-Ion battery, iMow emits no emissions while working.
