Get your hands on this fully robotic lawn mower from Italian manufacturers Oleo-Mac and you’ll be able to effortlessly achieve the sort of pristine formal lawn that would otherwise take serious dedication.Just because it’s a technologically advanced bit of kit, it doesn’t mean it’s complicated and difficult to operate. All you have to do to get it going is layout the perimeter wire around the area you wish to be cut; perform some simple calibration; programme the mowing times; and then you can sit back and relax as the Orion quietly and discreetly mows your lawn.Driving its powerful and durable brushless propulsion-motors is a high-performance 25.2v (2.9Ah) lithium-ion battery that has no memory effect; and which charges in only two-hours, giving a mowing time of up to the same amount. The beefy propulsion motors work with the high-grip tyres to allow the unit to operate on inclines up to 35˚.The Oleo-Mac Orion Robotic Lawn Mower is equipped with a pair of ultra-sharp blades which work together to reduce clippings to tiny particulates that will rapidly rot down, leaving your lawn debris-free and naturally nourished. It boasts pin-code theft protection, which renders it useless if stolen; and it features a unique retrieval function, which means you can choose to suspend mowing at any time and bring the mower back to its base-station. Obstacles are no problem for the Oleo-Mac Orion – if they’re under 7cm it will simply drive over them; if they’re bigger than that, the anti-collision detector will kick-in and direct it around the obstruction.A safety sensor stops the blade immediately the unit is lifted; important if children and pets are in the garden; while a five-stage height-of-cut means you can start with a higher blade position, and then gradually lower it until you’re left with a pleasing close-cropped finish.The Orion is waterproof, so it can operate in wet weather. However, if you’d rather it stayed at home when it rains, you can activate the rain-sensor that will see it return home to the docking station the moment the precipitation starts.Also worth mentioning is the LCD control and status-information panel, which makes the mower simple and intuitive to use; and the carry-handle that ensures you’ll have no trouble shifting it from site to site when necessary.
