Is A Husqvarna Automower® Right For Me?
- Are you physically unable to mow?
- Do you work long hours or just not have time to mow?
- Do you not have storage space for a large mower?
- Are you away for long periods of time?
- Do you just not like to mow in the heat and humidity?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, a Husqvarna Robotic Automower is definitely for you.
How Does It Work?
Husqvarna Automower® will give you a carpet-like lawn by maintaining your grass rather than mowing it. The difference between maintaining and mowing? It’s the difference between a good lawn and a perfect lawn.
Automower® cuts just a little grass at a time, naturally fertilizing the soil with miniscule clippings. As a result, your turf always looks neat, green and healthy.
With traditional mowing, your lawn grows tall before being cut off all at once. By contrast, Automower® clips just a little grass at a time, frequently. And don’t worry about Automower® missing a spot – the unit changes its pattern according to a programmed schedule.
- Clips rather than cuts
- Fine clippings fertilize naturally
- Smart working time based on grass growth rate
Is Automower® safe?
Automower® is safe for use around your children or pets. The blade will automatically stop if the mower is even slightly lifted. The outer body of Automower® is extra wide to provide ample space between the blade and the outer edges of the cover. Additionally, Automower® can be scheduled to dock when kids or pets are in the yard. The mower is equipped with sensors so that when it runs into an object such as a pet, it will stop, reverse direction and choose another path. If Automower® does collide with a pet, the contact is light and unlikely to cause any harm.
- Blades stop immediately if unit is lifted
- Gently moves around yard
- Non-fixed blades
Will Automower® be stolen?
Your Automower® is uniquely yours. To discourage theft, every Automower® comes with a unique PIN code that must be entered to make the unit operational. Additionally, Automower® has an audible anti-theft alarm built in. In the event of theft, models equipped with GPS tracking can pinpoint where the unit is.
- Smartphone-viewable GPS
- PIN code activation
- Anti-theft alarm
Will it go in the street or mow my neighbor's lawn?
Automower® cuts inside a boundary wire that’s easily installed by you or the selling dealer. It’s a dependable and effective system that can be customized to any yard or series of obstacles. As a result, your Automower® will go only where you want it to go – never in the street or a neighbor’s yard.
- Easily installed boundary wire
- Stays within pre-defined area
- Returns to charger on own
What about noise?
Silence is golden. The best time to mow is any time! The sound level of the Automower® is very low, ranging from 69 dB(A) to as little as 58 dB(A), depending on the model. By contrast, the average level of normal mowers is between 95 and 100 dB(A). You can easily have the mower working in your yard without disturbing yourself or the neighbors.
- Far quieter than traditional mowers
- Won’t disturb the neighbors
- Can be set to run at night
What if it rains or is hot?
Yes, Automower® is designed to withstand wet, rainy weather. In fact, your Automower® will continue cutting in dew or light rain. If the downpour becomes too much, the unit will head back to the recharging station. However, we do recommend you bring the mower inside during extreme weather conditions. Also, Automower® is designed to function in temperatures up to 113ºF. The NiMH battery capacity is lower in hot conditions. As a result, Automower® will charge and mow in shorter periods. However, the area mowed remains unchanged. Automower® models using Li-Ion batteries mow equally regardless of temperature range.
- Works in wet and rainy conditions
- Returns to station as needed
- Weather resistant
Are slopes a problem?
Thanks to its large driving wheels, Automower® works well on uneven ground and slopes up to 24°. Unlike traditional mowers, Automower® will not scalp hills. To help Automower® complete its job perfectly, it’s helpful to fill any gaps or holes in the yard prior to starting your mower. Likewise, Depending on the model, Automower® can handle passages as narrow as 24 inches.
- Handles slopes up to 24°
- Large driving wheels
- Won’t scalp hills
How does it compare to a traditional lawn mower?
Average Hours Mowing
Total Gallons of Gas Used
Is Automower® good for the environment?
Yes. Since Automower® runs on batteries, there are no emissions generated by the mower. Plus, the energy consumption is extremely low. Though running costs depend on the size of your lawn, it’s usually only $10 to $50 per mowing season, depending on the amount of electricity consumed.
Does Automower® make allergies worse?
On the contrary, if you suffer from grass allergies or hayfever, Automower® is a great solution. Since you don’t need to be present when Automower® is cutting your lawn, you won't be exposed to allergens or pollen. Plus, because the grass is kept short, plant allergens can't become airborne.
Do I need to bury a wire in the ground?
No. The wire can be laid on the ground using the supplied staples. In a few weeks, the wire will disappear into your lawn. Remember to cut your lawn as short as possible around the perimeter in order to get the wire as close as possible to the ground. However, if you do wish to bury the wire from the beginning, you can. The recommended depth is 1 to 4 inches.
I have a nice flower bed or vegetable garden. Will Automower® harm it?
Nope! After the boundary wire is installed correctly around your flowerbed, garden, tree, shrub or water feature, Automower® will not enter that area.
Can Automower® detect objects such as toys, pinecones, or fruit?
Automower® doesn’t detect small objects, so it’s up to you to keep your lawn free of clutter to avoid damage to your belongings or Automower®’s blades.
What is the maximum mowing area Automower®s can handle?
Automower® can mow lawns up to 44,000 square feet (approximately 1 acre), depending on the model and yard’s complexity. If the yard is larger than one acre, two or more Automower® units can work together in a multi-Automower® installation.
How do I connect to my Automower®?
The Automower® Connect app allows for remote monitoring and control of your mower. You can receive your mower’s current status on your iOS or Android smartphone, allowing you to control, adjust and monitor your Automower® with ease. Now compatible with Amazon Alexa, Automower® can also fit seamlessly into your smart home ecosystem. For the first time in history, cutting the grass is as simple as saying:
• Alexa, ask Automower® to start
• Alexa, ask Automower® to park
• Alexa, ask Automower® what it's doing
Amazon Alexa compatibility available via Automower® Connect. Automower® Connect comes standard on select models. Google Home compatibility coming soon.
How To Install A Husqvarna Automower®, The Connect App, And Manuals
Begin by taking a look at your lawn. To minimize the risk of having your robot lawn mower getting stuck or damaged, clear the grass of all rocks, twigs, tools, toys and other similar obstacles. If the grass is taller than four inches, we recommend cutting it with a regular lawn mower one last time.
1. Place the charging station
Place the charging station on flat ground at the edge of the cutting area with some free space around it. Make sure the station is free from sunlight, out of reach of sprinklers and within 50 feet of a power outlet.
2. Charge the battery
Once the charging station is in place, it’s time to charge your robotic mower. Put the robotic mower in the charging station and move on to the next step. Charging an empty battery takes 80-100 minutes.
3. Lay the boundary wire
The boundary wire is put along the edges of the lawn to define the cutting area. Simply attach it to the ground with the special nails enclosed in the package and the robotic mower will know exactly where to turn. Put “islands” of wire around flowerbeds and bushes to keep the mower from running into them.
4. Lay the guide wire
The purpose of the guide wire is to lead the Husqvarna Automower® back to the charging station when needed. Connect one end to the station and place the wire straight across the longest part of your lawn, so the robotic mower can easily find it. The other end is attached to the boundary wire where they intersect. Both the boundary and the guide wire are then connected to the charging station.
Turn on your Husqvarna Automower®, select your four-digit pin code, adjust the cutting height and set the work hours. That’s it! The robotic mower will charge until ready and then begin mowing. Congratulations! You have officially mowed the lawn for the last time.
