When Husqvarna first launched its fully automatic lawn mower back in 1995 it created world news headlines. Today, Husqvarna’s Professional Automower® range continues to maintain a variety of commercial green spaces such as hotels, wineries, industrial parks, hospitals, shopping centres and sporting grounds across Australia delivering a high quality, consistent and repeatable result.
In 2022 Husqvarna expands their robotic lawn mower offering to include a satellite-based EPOS (Exact Positioning Operating System) Technology, heralding a range of EPOS Automower® units to Australia – bringing us into the age of finely controllable, wireless, autonomous lawn mowing.
Husqvarna EPOS is a high-precise satellite navigation system for Husqvarna’s robotic lawn mowers. Instead of using a traditional boundary wire laid along the edges of the lawn, the area where the machines can be used is virtually defined using satellite data.
For the special demands on public lawns, the professional Automower® 550 EPOS model can handle areas of up to 5000m² per unit and even mow slopes of up to 24° inclines.
Husqvarna Automower® ensures a consistently healthy lawn because it continuously cuts just a few millimetres off the lawn at regular intervals. The mower’s razor-sharp blades cut the grass cleanly allowing for healthy regrowth. The fine green clippings are left on the area as natural fertiliser ensuring the quality of the lawn. As a result, grass roots grow up to 25 per cent deeper, and important nutrients are not only returned to the lawn, but the fine grass mulch that results from the cutting also insulates the soil and roots which reduces evaporation.
Thanks to the random cutting pattern, all Husqvarna robotic lawn mower units achieve a constant cut without tracks. Smart features built into Automower® also automatically adjust the mowing frequency to the growth rate of the grass. In this way, weeds, wild grass, and moss can be reduced in the lawn and costs for fertilisers and other lawn care measures can be saved.
Meanwhile, complete control via the Husqvarna Automower® App means that scheduled care such as aerating, weeding, scarifying or sanding the lawn can be scheduled and changed at user discretion.
Husqvarna Automower® also makes no compromises when it comes to safety. Features such as object detection, sensitive impact and lifting or tilting sensors stop the mower immediately if necessary.
After 27 years of innovation dedicated to the Automower®, Husqvarna ensures us that this is just the beginning of what these brilliant machines represent; particularly for us here in Australia.
