Product overview

Lawn care can be so easy and effortless! With its CorridorCut Systems, the GARDENA SILENO minimo 500 mows your lawn accurately and reliably and delivers a clean cutting profile. You can enjoy both your free time and a perfectly manicured lawn.

Quiet, versatile and intelligent - that's GARDENA SILENO minimo 500 robotic lawnmower. SILENO minimo 500 is ideal for smaller lawn areas up to 500m².

Control of SILENO minimo is through the GARDENA Bluetooth® App via Bluetooth® from up to 10m away.

To start using minimo 500, use the GARDENA Bluetooth® App on your smart phone (iOS or Android) to enter the lawn size, desired mowing days, and preferred start time. The GARDENA Bluetooth® App guides you intuitively through the initial installation, step by step. Your SILENO minimo organises a schedule and is ready to go. It works out the optimum grass cutting time, and the GARDENA Bluetooth® App uses its scheduling assistant to help you keep your lawns how you like them.

SILENO minimo has a host of features including CorridorCut, which guides the robot mower while it's cutting in narrow spaces and tight corners of just 60 cm in width between the boundary wires. CorridorCut will navigate your SILENO minimo out of tricky dead ends. Guided by SensorControl, minimo judges for itself how often your lawn needs a trim, setting off at the right frequency according to grass growth.

SILENO minimo operates in most weather conditions, independently mowing the lawn, rain or shine. In colder seasons, minimo senses if the ground is too frosty to mow, and waits until it has thawed by pausing its programme. This prevents damage to your lawn. Minimo can tackle lawns with slopes up to 25% (14 degrees).

How does minimo know where to mow? The boundary wire defines the area of garden that needs to be mown. Similarly, the wire directs the robotic mower reliably around all mowing areas.

When it’s time for a battery re-charge, minimo makes its way back home to its charging station. After its battery is topped up, it then sets out mowing again, according to the set mowing schedule.

And did we mention you will hardly hear it operating? Thanks to its particularly quiet motor, SILENO mimino has best in class low noise levels at only 57db(A). You - and your neighbours - can relax in peace in the garden, even when your robot is in action.

And when SILENO minimo needs a clean, simply give it a spray with your garden hose - it couldn't be easier or more convenient.

Enjoy your time in the garden while SILENO minimo effectively, automatically and quietly takes care of your lawn. SILENO minimo: THE intelligent robotic lawnmower.

Questions and answers

0 votes
What about the grass clippings? What happens to them please?
This unit does not collect any grass clippings as it's designed for frequent small trims of your lawn. The frequent cutting technique makes the collection of grass unnecessary.

This does have an adjustable cutting height ranging from 20-45 mm.

Little Turtle

When we first used it, we had doubts about whether it could cut our 450 sqm lawn with its speed (or rather slowness) and small cutting diameter... but after a few days the whole lawn looks great. We gave it the name “Little Turtle” because of its slow and gentle movements. Well done little one!!

Great product!

Easy to setup and quiet. Returns to the charging station when battery is low and continues when done charging. App works well. Works on wett grass. Pleased with my purchase.

Easy life

The robot mower has been excellent so far (3 weeks). Took a while to install the boundary wire but everything else has been a breeze. The mower starts automatically at 6 each night and always finds her way home. Grass is looking very good and will soon move to a lower setting. Recommended.

Sileno robotic mower

Does a great job, took some time to set up and was not enough wire or pegs, had to buy more to finish install but happy with how it works.

Kate Rotorua
Great product

I am absolutely stoked with my Gardena Robot Mower. It worked first time after install and performs exactly like I wanted brilliant buy.

Minimise 500

Love my mower, it was easy to set up. Sure beats having to lug the rotary around corners. I can enjoy a cuppa whilst watching it work.
