Italian term or phrase:in più scatti
Ciao a tutti,
Si tratta di una macchina interrafilo che viene utilizzata per installare il filo perimetrale che delimita l'area di taglio sul giardino per far lavorare il robot rasaerba.
Ruote allargabili in più scatti per regolare la distanza di interramento del cavo dal bordo (25 - 27 - 29 - 31 cm)"
Explanation: As Antonio says, it literally means "in several steps", the opposite of steplessly. However, I don't think "several" works, because it's too vague - there are four steps.
I would say "stepped wheel size adjustment for different cable depths".
Alternatively, since there are four steps and it specifies what they are, 25, 27, 29 and 31 cm, you could argue that "stepped" is redundant and leave it out.
I'm intrigued that you asked for the same phrase into French and German eight years ago!
