Husqvarna Automower® Celebrates 25 years of Innovation Leadership Since 1995

In 1995, Husqvarna launched the world’s first robotic lawnmower, the revolutionary Automower®. Today, more than 2 million gardens all over the world are home to a robotic mower from Husqvarna. Day and night, rain or shine, Automower® can be relied on to be out there doing its job, running effortlessly by itself.

Earlier this year, Husqvarna introduced Automower® 550 and 535 AWD to the Australian market – the first robotic mowers developed specifically for green space professionals. Whether you manage sporting fields, golf courses, parklands, or private property, you can rely on Automower® to provide impressive, healthy, and premium cut lawns. Equipped with professional controls for simplified interaction and remote control and surveillance through HUSQVARNA FLEET SERVICES™, these well-appointed robotic mowers were designed for landscaping and green care companies, with the aim of improving lawn quality and sustainability, while reducing costs and free up your workforce to focus on more complex tasks, such as hedge trimming or tree care.

The Professional Series takes all the benefits of Husqvarna’s domestic robotic lawnmowers, with additional design features for commercial use. These mowers can tackle lawns of up to 5000m², steep slopes of up to 70 per cent, and with an area capacity of up to 208m² an hour. Ultra-silent drive wheel motors in the robotic mower limits noise levels to just 58-62 dB(A). This provides the ability to cut silently day and night without disturbing park users or residents of nearby areas, for great-looking lawns around the clock. With the ability to cut 24/7, and so quietly, makes the Automower® ideal for maintaining grounds at hotels, libraries, cemeteries, parks and gardens and the like.

To easily handle complex areas the Professional series of Automower® has a variety of features, such as Penta-search, triple guide wires, and automatic passage handling. Penta-search means five search methods to find the charging station, and triple guide wires enable the mower to handle complex areas. The Automatic passage handling feature guides the mower through narrow passages, allowing it to navigate through the most complex of spaces.

For improved lawn health, GPS-assisted navigation and a weather timer help ensure uniform coverage of complex lawns, while automatically adapting the mowing frequency to lawn growth. Due to the mower’s self-fertilising cutting technique, the lawn does not require as much fertilisation when compared with other conventional mowing equipment. Husqvarna Automower® cuts a bit at a time, but more often, which creates a denser, greener lawn that also prevents moss and keeps down weeds.

Automower® 550 is optimised for lawns with a capacity of up to 5000m² and can handle slopes of up to 45 per cent (24°). Landscaping and green care companies can control the Automower® via HUSQVARNA FLEET SERVICES™ or via an app on their phone. Connectivity between the user and the mower is achieved through cellular networks or Bluetooth capabilities, while Automower® 550 handles all types of lawns with perfect cutting results – even in rainy conditions. Remote Object Detection minimises the mowers impact on any obstacles encountered during mowing, whilst the robust construction ensures durability and reliability. With their commercial user interface, Automower® 550 is equipped with a status LED indication and a sturdy and easy to manage switch for START/STOP functionality, which makes its use in public open spaces ideal. The commercial user interface also simplifies its use for inexperienced operators as well as ensuring minimal interference from the general public in case of vandalism.

Automower® 535 AWD is optimised for lawns with a capacity of up to 3500m² and takes slope handling to another level. This quiet, connected mountain climbing lawnmower is designed for professional use, and manages 70 per cent (35°) inclines and rough terrain – with zero direct emissions and top performance. This all-wheel-drive robotic mower features technology that optimises the control of each wheel in order to enable superior operation even in the most demanding of areas.

With an impressive slope performance, Automower® 535 AWD rewrites the rules for autonomous maintenance of green spaces, improving the safety of your workforce.

A pivoting rear body design enables truly excellent manoeuvrability for navigation on complex lawns and through passages while considerably enhancing traction in rough terrain. The mower is also equipped with remote object detection feature. The Ultrasonic sensors, means that the 535 AWD robotic mower reduces its speed as soon as it senses a nearby object. For extra robustness, wheel brushes and a rubber bumper have been added to the body.
