You could soon be making your neighbours green with envy and sitting back while the Husqvarna Automower® does all the hard mowing work for you.

This sleek robotic mower works inside an electronic ‘fence’ created by a boundary wire, and returns to its charging station when the battery runs low. Suitable for larger areas, it can even handle steep slopes up to a 45 degree incline. Smart technology adapts the amount of mowing to the lawn’s growth rate, enables spot mowing of a limited area of longer grass and guides the mower through narrow passages. A setting panel allows you to personalise the mower to suit your garden.

The Automower® is a gentler way to mow your lawn as it constantly cuts the grass as it grows and the clippings mulch and fertilise the lawn. It also produces no emissions and very little noise.

To prevent theft, a pin code is required for any intervention and an alarm is set off if the code is ignored.
