Quick Review

The much anticipated Gardena Sileno Minimo has recently been released into the market and it does not disappoint! This mowing has some very impressive features and capabilities, let's take a look!

Design

The first thing we love to talk about is the Gardena Sileno Minimo’s stunning design. It has a very stylish design. The colors are ash, black and some blue. The wheels also have some blues in them. The button layout is simple. There is a big orange STOP button for shutting down the mower in emergencies. We must say, there is no led panel on the mower. Just the big stop button and a 5 button interface with flashing LEDs. Why is that? Because all the settings of the Minimo lawn mower are controlled via the Gardena app.

Performance

Ok, it is beautifully designed and you can control it with your phone. But how does the Sileno Minimo perform? The official rating is 500m2 . We would not recommend you to stretch any further. The package comes with a roll of boundary wire and a guidewire. Now the guidewire is a very useful feature that most other robot mowers lack. With the guidewire, the mower can drive back directly to its charging port without wasting any battery. The package comes with all sorts of equipment so that you DIY lovers can install it by yourself. This will also save you installation costs.

Waterproof

The Gardena Sileno Minimo is waterproof. So, no need to worry about letting it out when it rains. This also comes in handy when cleaning your robotic mower.

Sensors

The Gardena Sileno Minimo has many built-in sensors. A tilt sensor, a hood sensor, and a hood sensor. All these sensors combined work in the safety and security of its operation. With the mobile app, you can set it to mow corridors and certain spots.

Blade Configuration

The blades used in this mower are a set of three pivoted cutting blades. The pivot system makes the blade take less damage when it hits something hard, like a stone or stick. The blade height can be changed to adjust the grass level. 

What's In the Package?

The package comes with the charging base, power supply, boundary wire, wire pegs, wire connectors, and clamps. Everything you will need to set the mower up by yourself is included in the package.
