The future is here: Presenting the Sileno City 250 Robotic Lawnmower

Modern domestic living gives us the luxury of taking for granted the “robots” that handle the tedious chores around the house. It is difficult to imagine our lives without our washing machines and dishwashers yet there was a time when even these machines were viewed with apprehension. 

“The technological push in domestic automation has mainly focused on indoor chores. We at GARDENA felt that uninspiring outdoor activities such as lawn mowing could, and should, be automated. The idea of the Robotic Lawnmower was born” says Josh Turner, Product and Marketing Manager for GARDENA Australia.

“Most people enjoy the look of a perfectly manicured lawn but rarely find pleasure in the work involved to make it so which is why we are introducing the new GARDENA SILENO City 250 Robotic Lawnmower to the Australian market.” Continues Mr Turner.

“The conventional way of taking care of the lawn usually consists of mowing when it appears long and untidy instead of maintaining it regularly at its ideal height. The SILENO City 250 cuts almost continuously producing fine grass clippings which act as a natural fertiliser promoting healthy growth. It mows lawns better than we humans can.” Concludes Mr. Turner.

The award-winning GARDENA SILENO City 250 has been designed to mow lawn areas up to 250 square metres without human intervention, reliably, evenly and quietly. It is easy to install and program, runs on a Li-Ion battery and automatically returns to its charging station when recharging is required.
The SILENO City 250 is covered by the GARDENA 2-year warranty which extends to 3 years if the Robotic Lawnmower is registered within 3 months of purchase (wear parts and battery excluded).

Available at Bunnings Warehouse.
