Features

Before using the STIGA A 1500 autonomous robotic lawnmower for the first time, we are going to do a review.Go through its main features to find out why it's so new.

The STIGA A 1500 autonomous robotic lawnmower works thanks to the combination of the GPS signal and AGS technology. RTK GPS allows you to locate your position with pinpoint accuracy and communicate with the reference station using a seamless 4G signal. This reference station is mounted, by default, inside the charging station. If the GPS signal was low in our garden, the station could be removed and placed at a high point to, in this way, have the necessary intensity.
