Here’s How Husqvarna Automower® Simplifies Lawn Care

You’ve heard the rumors about a solution to your lawn care woes, but could they possibly be true? Could it be that a tiny little robot could save you from hours of pushing a heavy mower in the hot sun?  The future is here with Husqvarna Automower®.

Not only will this incredible little machine mow your lawn for you, but it will keep your grass at a perfect length all summer long!

Read more in this blog about how a Husqvarna Automower® could work for you.

What is Husqvarna Automower®?

A Husqvarna Automower® consists of four key components: the mower unit, a charging station, boundary wires and guide wires. All of these parts are essential for automating the perfect lawn. We’ll take a closer look at each of them below.

1. Mower Unit

The mower is a compact plastic unit with four wheels. Husqvarna offers a variety of different models that work for a wide range of yard types, anywhere from the smallest city lot to a hilly rural backyard.
The best part, of course, is the mower rolls along on its own without you having to push or pull it. The mower is also completely electric, saving you money on gas and saving the environment.

2. Charging Station

Each mower comes with a charging station that you can install on your property. When the mower runs low on battery, it will automatically return to the charging station on its own. How does it find its way back, you ask?  That’s what the guidewires and boundary wires are for.

3. Guidewires

Guidewires are the lifeline of a Husqvarna Automower®. These wires sit a couple of inches below the ground and lead from anywhere in the yard back to the charging station. So, if the mower needs a charge, it can always seek out a guidewire to lead it to the charger.

4. Boundary Wires

But what’s to stop the robot lawnmower from venturing away from your yard? The answer is the boundary wires. Like the guidewires, these wires sit inches beneath the ground around the edges of your property and the spots where you don’t want the mower to mow. When the mower encounters a boundary wire, it stops, turns around and keeps mowing in bounds.

How Do You Install Husqvarna Automower®?

The only human labor required with an Automower® occurs during installation. Someone needs to set up the charging station and lay the guidewires and boundary wires around the property. To find out more about installation check out our handy blog

How Does Husqvarna Automower® Work?

Once the mower is installed, you get to sit back and enjoy watching the mower do its magic. Let’s take a look at some of the best benefits of owning an Automower®.

Everyday Mowing

It may seem odd to you to have a mower that mows every day. After all, why would you need to mow more than once a week? The answer is simple: Husqvarna Automower® mows every day to keep the grass at the perfect length all Spring/ Summer long!

Peace and Quiet

Now, you may be cringing at the thought of having a mower constantly running because of all the noise. It would be terrible to have a regular old gas-powered mower roaring around your yard all day long.

Free from Danger and Damage

Concerns might naturally arise when you think about a robot tirelessly mowing your lawn, especially with children, pets, and lawn decorations in the mix. Fortunately, Husqvarna has engineered the Automower® to handle such situations with care and precision.
When the Automower® encounters an obstacle, it reacts gently. It approaches the obstacle, makes a gentle bump, pauses, gracefully reverses its direction, and proceeds along an alternate path. This ensures the safety of your beloved lawn features, kids, and pets.
Furthermore, you can rest assured that accidental encounters won't result in damage. Each Automower® is equipped with small retractable blades. So, if it happens to roll over an object like a stick or an apple, the blades automatically retract, leaving both the mower and the object unharmed. Safety and peace of mind are paramount in the design of Husqvarna Automower®. 

Security and Theft Protection

Concerns about theft can naturally arise when you own a self-operating mower. However, there's no need for apprehension with a Husqvarna mower. Each unit is equipped with robust security features, offering you peace of mind:

  • Unique PIN Code: Every Husqvarna mower comes with a distinctive PIN code requirement. Without the correct code, any attempt to move the mower triggers a loud alarm.
  • Charging Station Compatibility: The mower's charging station is exclusively compatible with your property. If someone were to take the mower, they wouldn't be able to recharge it anywhere else.
  • GPS Tracking: Should your mower ever go missing, you can swiftly locate it using GPS tracking, conveniently accessible directly from your smartphone.

These are just a few examples of the remarkable security measures integrated into every Automower®. Rest assured; you can enjoy the convenience of a worry-free, automated lawn care experience without concerns about losing your valuable investment.

Complete Control

Even though an Automower® mows on its own, you still have complete control over it. You can monitor your mower directly from your smartphone! Using the Husqvarna app, you can dictate when you want the mower to mow and track its progress. It’s the best way to have complete dominion over your lawn without having to break a sweat!
