      Yes, I am only doing manual depart because I have 3 little kids running around in the back, but I have used max. The first time, it only cut about half the yard before returning. The second time, there were about 7 or 8 stripes. The base zone is only about 0.15ish acre.

      Thanks

      It doesn t sound right. Do you have a warranty? I would put the issue in the hands of the vendor if so. From: RoboMower@yahoogroups.com

          You say you just bought it. Was it new or used?

          I'm going to go out on a limb and say you have a bad battery or both.

          If the battery pack is like the RL1000, it's two 12v batteries wired in series to get 24 volts. Once I wired mine wrong in parallel. The mower didn't like it and didn't run properly but it worked.

          I'd check the batteries by taking it to an auto parts store. They have a tester that will determine if you have a bad battery. But, usually, a bad battery will quickly shorten the life of the other.

            Just bought it brand new, from Sams club online.

            I bought a cheap voltmeter, and pulled the power pack from the mower. Each battery read 11V(ish). The back of the power pack read around 23. Not really sure what to do next.....I suppose its possible that the dock is not providing adequate power, since these batteries are brand new......

            Thoughts?

                  Don't they provide an after sales service? Buying it online does not mean you have no warranty rights.

                  By the way, my RL2000 battery pack is a sealed single unit, in which there are 2x17AH 24V sealed lead acid batteries. Average mowing time 3 hours 20 (but as I say it goes for we'll over 4 hours)

                  I bought a cheap voltmeter, and pulled the power pack from the mower. Each battery read 11V(ish). The back of the power pack read around 23. Not really sure what to do next.....I suppose its possible that the dock is not providing adequate power, since these batteries are brand new......

                  Thoughts?

                    When fully charged each of the 12v batteries in the pack should measure 13.8V-14.7V. The voltage will vary with ambient temperature.

                      Yes, I am only doing manual depart because I have 3 little kids running
                      around in the back, but I have used max. The first time, it only cut about
                      half the yard before returning. The second time, there were about 7 or 8
                      stripes. The base zone is only about 0.15ish acre.

                        The mower doesn't care if it's dark and it's not very loud.

                        It's not the kids or pets I worry about..... they can move! It's the toys,
                        garden hose, tree branches, and who knows what else was left out there this
                        time that I worry about.

                          Bad batteries can and do work for shorter periods.

                          Since it's new, I hate to tell you to pop that battery pack open and unshort the wires.

                          There is a voltage meter that's about 70 bucks or so that can measure whether a battery is bad, not just the voltage. As far as I know, they do this on 12v batteries only. I'm a minus for Batteries Plus
                          because they replaced the original battery with a cheaper model and have done so every year for the last three running.

                          I'm still going with bad battery pack.

                          You try a few unorthodox things. The man who runs Probotics is very knowledgeable and helpful. You might catch him on a slow day and he'll talk your ear off. You could try calling that dealership and I'm sure he's experienced almost everything related to these things.

Not really sure what to do next.....I suppose its possible that the dock is not providing adequate power, since these batteries are brand new......

                          the only problem that I see running it at night is doo. The grass could be wet and that creates more resistance. More resistance takes more power meaning

                            the only problem that I see running it at night is doo. The grass could be wet and that creates more resistance. More resistance takes more power meaning shorter mowing times.

                            My mower has glided right over power cords, hoses and such. The major problem I have is making sure the car is not in the zone as it will get stuck under it.

                            BTW, I do like the idea someone else had of using a knife sharpener on the blades for a touch up.

                              Not all weather conditions produce dew on every night.

                              But I'll say right now, wet grass DOES suck. Not just because of
                              resistance, it can cake up inside the blade wells and it'll mostly stop
                              cutting when that happens.

                                the only problem that I see running it at night is doo. The grass could be wet and that creates more resistance. More resistance takes more power meaning shorter mowing times.

                                My mower has glided right over power cords, hoses and such. The major problem I have is making sure the car is not in the zone as it will get stuck under it.

                                BTW, I do like the idea someone else had of using a knife sharpener on the blades for a touch up.

                                If they re reading 11v when off the charger, then the charger s probably malfunctioning. 11v is dead . Well, it s the point where you recharge. Danny

                                  11v is "dead". Well, it's the point where you recharge.

                                  Yes, if you mow too late you can get wet grass at times. But, you can also get wet grass from rain. There are times of the year that we get dew right away,

                                    Yes, if you mow too late you can get wet grass at times. But, you can also
                                    get wet grass from rain.



                                    There are times of the year that we get dew right away, but not that often.
                                    Mowing at 10p generally hasn't been a problem. My "wet mowing" has mostly
                                    occurred during/after rain.



                                    Concur about the toys. Hoses haven't been a problem except when one crosses
                                    over itself making a short section stick up. If it's flat the mower will
                                    just go over it but if it has a piece sticking up it'll sure nick a hole in
                                    it.

                                    Not all weather conditions produce dew on every night.

                                    But I'll say right now, wet grass DOES suck. Not just because of
                                    resistance, it can cake up inside the blade wells and it'll mostly stop
                                    cutting when that happens.

                                    wet and that creates more resistance. More resistance takes more power
                                    meaning shorter mowing times.

                                    problem I have is making sure the car is not in the zone as it will get
                                    stuck under it.

                                        Ok, sorry one more battery question. If the charger is bad, what is the best way to tell? The information says charging voltage 33.6V, but is that a measurement or just a default when it's plugged in?

                                        Also, assuming the mower has enough battery to fully cut my back yard, it has left small triangles about 2 feet on one side) in about 6 or 7 places in the yard. Are there any settings that I can try to remedy that? Tired of cutting the missed spots by hand. The yard is not big, but there are a couple juts and a play set to bounce off of....perhaps it's just confused?

                                        Thanks for all the great help!
                                        Mike

                                          Ok, sorry one more battery question. If the charger is bad, what is the best way to tell? The information says charging voltage 33.6V, but is that a measurement or just a default when it's plugged in?

                                          Also, assuming the mower has enough battery to fully cut my back yard, it has left small triangles about 2 feet on one side) in about 6 or 7 places in the yard. Are there any settings that I can try to remedy that? Tired of cutting the missed spots by hand. The yard is not big, but there are a couple juts and a play set to bounce off of....perhaps it's just confused?

                                          Thanks for all the great help!
                                          Mike

                                          Assuming this places are within the perimeter it show mow them eventually....assuming it runs long enough. Try manually starting it around that area and see

                                            Ok, sorry one more battery question. If the charger is bad, what is the best way to tell? The information says charging voltage 33.6V, but is that a measurement or just a default when it's plugged in?

                                            Also, assuming the mower has enough battery to fully cut my back yard, it has left small triangles about 2 feet on one side) in about 6 or 7 places in the yard. Are there any settings that I can try to remedy that? Tired of cutting the missed spots by hand. The yard is not big, but there are a couple juts and a play set to bounce off of....perhaps it's just confused?

                                            Thanks for all the great help!
                                            Mike
