Islands (1)
→ Always limit the creation of islands.
→ When to create an island?
1. When the part to isolate is found near a flowerbed or a boundary and there is no
physical barrier (e.g. a flowerbed in the middle of the garden).

→ Alternative solution to creating an island?
1. Create a physical boundary (edge, pickets) in such a way that the PARCMOWBIGMOW sonar detects them (minimum 40 cm high).
Ø10 cm minimum
40 cm minimum
Cross-section view
1. Certain boundaries do not need protection (trees …).
Cross-section view
→ For swimming pools, lakes, ponds, etc. (critical areas).
You must set up a boundary wire AND protect the water feature by a physical boundary.
When the station power is cut, the machine continues for 1 metre (1 second) before stopping
and therefore you must set up a physical boundary near a critical area.

Setting up the peripheral wire:
wire: Islands
Islands (3)
→ Island connector configuration:
→
The cable set up is the 1G1.5 mm² or the 3G1.5 mm², single strand wire.
→
The blue or black cable is used for the peripheral wire.
→ The red cable is used for the return from an island. When an island is created at more
than 5 metres from the peripheral wire, the same sheath is used for the return of the signal.
This enables the signal to be cancelled and the machine to cross.
→
The yellow cable is only used for special connections.
Pay attention to the direction of the island and its connections (the cables may not be
crossed). When the peripheral wire is cabled in a clockwise direction, the island is cabled in
an anti-clockwise direction.
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO USE THE 1.5 mm² CABLE IN A SE ALED TUBE
Any cable other than the 1.5 mm² single strand wire is to be avoi ded. Belrobotics does not guarantee the operation of the machine with another cable.

• During set-up:
1. Place a 1.5 mm² single strand wire in a sheath along the terrain border. Use thermo
retractable crimp-on connectors with resin. The cable is positioned between 2 and 5 cm
deep.
2. Maximum 1000 metres of peripheral wire.
3. Avoid the creation of bottlenecks in the area where the machine moves around.
4. Avoid including an additional area in the work area by a very narrow passage (width of
passage: min 5 metres).
5. Do not leave major irregularities in the terrain (hollows or bumps). Spread sand on the
irregular area.
6. The edges of the terrain, delimited by trees or hedgerows must be mowed.
7. Shrubs do not stop the machine, protect them with a ‘rigid physical’ protection (allow obstacles of a minimum 40 cm high areas of a maximum 50 cm); remove or protect obstacles of less than 15 cm in height on the terrain.
8. Limit yourself to 5 islands in the working area.
9. Do not place a peripheral wire perpendicular to a steep slope line of more than 15%,
(even at the bottom of a slope). Leave a minimum of 1 metre flat.
10. Terrains that are too marshy, not drained, with an accumulation of water at certain periods and/or certain locations must be adapted by effective drainage.
11. Collect the grass before using machine on a terrain for the first time.
12. Do not place an obstacle at less than 2 metres from the layout of the wire when it bypasses an island (to avoid obstacles on the return to the station).
13. Place the station in an area where there are no obstacles near the wire, leave the wire
accesses open (on 10 metres before and after the station). The station must be set up
in the largest space in the mowing area, and do not set it up in a secluded location or in a
secondary area. Insert the peripheral wires and the power supply wire underneath the
station via holes of a size equal to the diameter of the sheaths.
14. The station must be positioned on a flat surface of min. 2 metres in front of the station
arm. In addition it must have the straightest line possible for 3 metres on both sides of
the station (a slight curve without a break is acceptable) BUT a completely straight line
for 1 metre on both sides of the station is mandatory.
15.Connect the station in accordance with the current guidelines (terminal protected by differential for the exterior, buried cable…).
16. Protect water features or areas at risk.
17. Keep 15 metres around the station without obstacle.
18. Two stations must be at least 30 metres apart (2*15 m).
19. Protect areas at risk (pond, lake, swimming pool, path…) by a physical obstacle.
20.You can coordinate the automatic sprinklers with the station load arm via an optional accessory (contactor).

• During use:
1. Remove from the terrain any object that might block the cutting heads, e.g. tree
branches, tools, planks of wood, bars…
2. Do not restart (several times!) the machine when there is a safety alert.
3. Do not carry the machine on a wheelbarrow, pallet truck…
4. The “systematic mode” option on a complex terrain will not operate properly because of
the complexity of the terrain (the machine will not go everywhere).
5. When the grass has not been cut for several days, lower the cutting heads from 1 to 2
notches maximum per day to have a perfect lawn after 8 to 10 days.
6. Leave the machine on when it is connected to its charging station. (do not switch off)
7. Tow the machine manually (in order not to have motor resistance, leave the machine on).
Do not tow the machine with a tractor, quad or other engine going at a speed faster than
human pace.
8. Don’t switch off the machine on charge.
Check of the state of a terrain before use
(Bigmow, Ballpicker, Parcmow)
These machines have been made to operate on lawns.
Their use on “off road” annuls all guarantees.
Terrains where there is not a difference in level of more than 2.5 cm depth in a
maximum of 10 cm in width, tested with a lathe, will still be considered as lawns.
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO USE THE 1.5 mm² CABLE IN A SEALED TUBE
Any cable other than the 1.5 mm² single strand wire is to be avoided. Belrobotics does not guarantee the operation of the machine with another cable.
Any problem that occurs because of incorrect set-up annuls the guarantee.
