About Husqvarna Automower®
The Husqvarna robotic lawnmower was introduced in 1995 and has since evolved into a true performer that handles almost any garden. More than twenty years on, the robotic lawnmower still excels on the lawn, quietly and efficiently saving you time to do other things.
Since its birth, Husqvarna Automower® has truly evolved both in its name and its capabilities. It’s powered by electricity and takes on steep 45% climbs, works in any weather condition, and powers along silently.
The unique mowing technique is based on that the mower’s small, sharp pivoting blades continuously cuts the grass several times in random patterns within the boundaries you decide. When it’s time to recharge the battery, the mower returns to its charging station, and thereafter continues to mow until the job is done.
