 My new robomow toy

This is very off topic but I hope you will forgive me. 

I just got my robotic lawn mower an here is a movie clip where it mows the front lawn. It works excellent! I can't wait for the grass to grow back up so I can use it again.

It works by setting up a perimeter wire - you might see the black cable in the clip - and the robot will keep within that area. There are two programmes. One where it follows the perimeter wire and cut the outer boundaries and one where it runs around in between the wire setup.

It uses the multiclip method where it cuts the grass into a fine dust.

I was in the market for one since I have the Electrolux Tribolite. But our area is not flat enough and I wanted something I could use wintertime and hook up a snowblower to. So I got myself a Stiga Park Prestige 4WD

Sure U have to drive it yourself, but it's big fun and with the 4WD it's virtually unstoppable!

I bought a new charger for the battery today. The official quick charger has a list price of 1400 SEK but I found a charger at ELFA that does the job for 550 SEK.

The manufacturer is called "Mean well" and the part number is PB-120P-27C.

The old charger charged at 0.9A and the new one gives 4.3A. The old charger used 22 hours and the new one was finished when I went into the garage after 2.5 hours (so it might have been an even shorter charging time!).

My guess is this is a better charger with better parts than the original quick charger that uses 4 hours for a complete recharge.
So for you robomow owners out there that want an upgrade, check it out.

When a charger has a fan to cool down the electronics - you know it means business! 

This means I can double or triple my cutting area per day!
