FAQ TANGO E5
Our competent and professional John Deere Dealer will be happy to set up your TANGO E5 on your property, corresponding to the requirements of your lawn and they will service the equipment to ensure that it will function for many long years without any problems.
Function / Performance
It is ideal for areas of up to 1,800 square meters. Objects or sections of the yard, such as flower beds, can be excluded using the limiting wire. Using a wire sensor, the TANGO E5 avoids them by automatically going around any obstacles outside of its limits ("excluded obstacles"). The mowable area depends on the complexity of the yard. The more complex the yard (lots of exclusions, steep inclines and fragmented yard layouts), the higher the energy consumption. Your local John Deere Dealer will be at your side with advice and assistance during the setup.
In principle, the TANGO E5 can be used for any type of yard. Under certain circumstances, the equipment must be adapted slightly to the yard. Of course, the product specifications, such as the maximum possible incline and the minimum width of the mowing path, must be observed. To do this, please observe the information in the operating instructions or contact your local John Deere Dealer directly.
This John Deere automatic mower fully charges itself in 80 minutes and, depending on the complexity of the mowing program, can then be used for up to 90 minutes of yard work.
This John Deere automatic mower can also mow in the rain without any problems. However, we recommend that you do not use the TANGO E5 in inclement weather and protect it from possible lightning strikes. You can interrupt the mowing by pressing the stop button and instantly resume mowing once the weather improves.
The minimum (from wall to wall) is 150cm. This ensures that the mower can reach the areas on both sides of the passage-way. Your local John Deere Dealer will be happy to assist you with programming the mowing program.
If the areas are connected by a level path and the cable is laid accordingly, the TANGO E5 will move to the second area as programmed. If there is no path between the two work areas, it is recommended that you create a secondary area ("bordered" by the cable). In this application scenario, the TANGO E5 must be manually carried from the main area to the secondary area.
The TANGO E5 automatically returns to its charging station when the batteries are drained. It will charge itself to 100% before continuing the pre-programmed mowing program.
Will it suit my lawn?
The TANGO E5 can handle inclines inside the work area of up to 35% (this means a height difference of 35cm over 1 meter). Along the limiting cable (the edge of the mowing area), the maximum permitted incline is 10%. This prevents the mower from slipping over the limiting cable when it reaches the edge of the lawn (for example if the grass is wet).
Maintaining additional mowing areas is not a problem. If they are connected by a path, the TANGO E5 will move back and forth on its own, corresponding to the programming.
Assuming that the limiting cable has been correctly laid around flower beds, trees, shrubs or other objects, the TANGO E5 will not enter the area and thus will not damage flowers, trees, shrubs, etc. Your local John Deere Dealer will be happy to assist you with installing the limiting cable.
What do I need to do?
Firstly, the rule is that no people or animals should linger in the mowing area unsupervised. The TANGO E5 always carries out its mowing tasks as per the programming, thus allowing you to enjoy your leisure time away from mowing.
The cuttings made by TANGO E5 are approximately the length of a small grain of rice. The cut grass remains in the small spaces between the mowed areas, acting as a natural fertilizer without causing unsightly piles of grass. The grass on the mowed area looks healthier and greener.
What is the best way to store the TANGO E5 during winter? Does the TANGO E5 require a lot of storage space?
This John Deere automatic lawnmower can be safely stored in a cellar or a frost-free garage. It takes up considerably less space than a comparable manual lawnmower. Your local John Deere Dealer will be happy to give you some recommendations for winter servicing.
The charging station is weather-proof and can be flexibly positioned in your yard. Your local John Deere Dealer will be happy to discuss this with you and give you recommendations for an ideal position, while taking into account whether the location already has power or needs to be supplied with power.
The TANGO E5 is protected by means of a PIN code, which renders it useless to thieves.
Switch the mower off and turn the TANGO E5 over so that you can see the saucer-shaped blade cap. This can be rotated slightly in order to move the blades upward or downward.
