After trying to answer the question, “Is the Husqvarna Automower the Best Robotic Mower?,” we received a ton of requests for a more detailed look at the Husqvarna 430x. In our Husqvarna Automower 430x review, we’ll take more of an in-depth look at one of the most popular robotic mowers.

Husqvarna Automower 430x vs. 450x
The Husqvarna Automower 430x finds the sweet spot between affordability and features. It features a .8 acre cutting capacity and nearly all of the same features found on the more expensive Automower 450x. The 430x continues to be our top seller as it offers the best bang for the buck in the world of robotic mowers. If you need the additional capacity of the larger 450x, you may want to consider it. The 450x also features more advanced remote object detection. This slows the mower down if any objects are detected in the mower’s path. In the case of the 430x, if it does collide with an object, it will simply adjust its path and continue to mow.
Control and Customization
One of the best features is actually the Husqvarna companion app that allows you to control and customize how the Automower cuts. You can control the mower from anywhere due to the built in cellular connectivity. Through the app, you can monitor the progress of the mower as well as set options such as cutting schedule and cutting height. The app also monitors the location of your Automower and sends alerts in the event of attempted theft.
The Husqvarna Automower 430x has been rock solid so far. It boasts the ability to mow even in the rain without any problems. The 430x also features studded wheels that allow it to mow up slopes up to 45 degrees. A beefy bumper also ensures that any collisions do not damage the mower. Finally, the mower will stop if it is overturned or lifted. This helps to protect you as wells as the blades and mower itself.
Besides the obvious benefit of saving you the time and energy it usually takes to mow your lawn, the 430x Automower uses algorithms to provide professional results. Typically, you probably cut your lawn on a schedule or when you notice it needs a trim. The Automower cuts your lawn constantly, so your lawn always stays at the perfect height. Furthermore, the clippings are so small that they simply disappear into your lawn without the need for bagging or picking them up after each mow. After the initial boundaries are set up, you can be sure that exactly the areas you want to be mowed are going to look great.
Set it and Forget It
Husqvarna made sure to keep convenience a top priority when developing their line of Automowers. Besides the custom cutting schedule, this little robot has a few other automated features up its sleeve. Each mower comes with a charging base that you can place in your yard. When the 430x is low on power, it will automatically return to its base to charge itself back up. In the event that someone tries to remove your mower from the designated area, an alarm will sound in addition to an alert being sent to you. This ensures your investment stays safely on your property.
Initial Setup Required
Of course, our Husqvarna Automower 430x review wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t mention the one aspect that could be improved. The Automower does not use GPS to map out obstacles or the boundaries of your yard. Instead, a wire must be laid out which the mower senses and uses to know where to mow. Initially setting the boundaries can be tedious and time consuming, but fortunately, here at Advanced Power Equipment, we have the experience to get this done efficiently the first time so you don’t need to worry about it.
Our Husqvarna Automower 430x review places this mower as one of the top choices for anyone looking at purchasing a robotic mower. With all of the features you could want in an automatic mower and a reasonable price, it is easy to see what makes this mower such a great choice.
