A real mate for life

Ambrogio – Real robotics specialists

Ambrogio have been making the world’s best automatic lawn-mowers for 20 years and have distribution in over 50 countries. Their robots are globally recognised for their superior quality and longevity.  With over 100 robotics specialists and product developers, lead personally by company President Fabrizio Bernini, Ambrogio are industry leaders for technology.

How do they work?

It isn’t actually magic. Our installer will use a machine to bury a perimeter wire approx 5cm deep around the perimeter of your lawn that creates an electro-magnetic field and also identify potential issues.  We then program the hours you want it to operate, install the charging station, and your Robomate will keep your lawn near-perfect without human intervention.  The magic is in the result!

*L60 – no installation required.

How long will it last? Will it become obsolete?

All our Robomates come with a 2 year warranty (excluding blade), and have been thoroughly proven over long testing periods.  In the right conditions and serviced once per year, we believe your Robomate will last 10+ years.  Although the technology is new to many Kiwis, Ambrogio have been making these for 20+ years and older models are still not obsolete as software can be updated.

I’ve heard the blades constantly need changing…

Unlike most robotic lawnmowers, your Robomate has a traditional 4-point blade that is capable of serious cutting. The Ambrogio brushless motor is significantly larger and more powerful than other brands, spinning the blade at up to 5,400rpm. This means that the speed of the blade will cut the grass, even if it’s no longer sharp. As a result, you should only need to change this once per year, and as it’s only 4 screws and ~$40, it’s a simple operation.

The lawn quality is near perfect – they are used to maintain bowling greens in some places!  The robot’s ‘random’ cutting pattern makes for more evenly cut, stronger grass and as the lawn is cut regularly, bacteria converts the tiny clippings to nitrogen and self-fertilizes.

No.  The grass is kept short enough that you don’t need to remove the nutrients and won’t encounter issues with thatching.

Yes.  While the robots have rain sensors, we normally suggest that in New Zealand it is turned off as it can rain for long periods continuously.  The low ground pressure means it can cut in most wet conditions without damaging the lawn.

Yes.  The robot knows where it’s charging station is and will return to base when it’s finished or requires charge.

(*all models except L60)

All Robomates have bump sensors that turn it away from objects over 10cm and will switch off when you lift it up.  While it does have a serious blade designed for cutting, it is difficult to reach from the side and past the blade-cover.

We all think our pet is one in a million, but there literally are millions of robot lawnmowers across the world and issues are extremely rare.  Most pets (including dogs) will initially show interest but soon get bored.

On an average size lawn, your Robomate will consume approximately $3-5 per month.  Considerably cheaper than any combustion engine!

No problem, there are plenty of options.  Whether we install extra batteries, use multiple machines or specify an L400 (up to 30,000m²), we will find the most cost-effective, sensible solution for your property.
