It’s hard to believe, but “smart” technology is rampant in almost every part of our lives. Robotic mowers have been widely used in Europe for years. Interestingly, they are just starting to become popular in the US. Robotic mowers are working their way into becoming the new standard for homeowners all across America. With high-end professional mowers costing over $10,000, they will still not mow your lawn for you! The Husqvarna Automower gives you the best of both worlds – professional looking results without the monthly cost of hiring a landscaper and no additional work on your end.
Is the Husqvarna Automower Right for You?
Well, in short, the Husqvarna Automower has received great reviews from many different sites across the web. We all love the robotic mower, so we’ll let you do your own research for some unbiased reviews. However, we can tell you about some of the great features and benefits of the Husqvarna Automower to help you decide.
We are coming off a particularly drawn out winter here in New Jersey. Everyone is excited for the warm weather, barbecues, and trips to the shore. Everyone is NOT excited to be planning multiple full days revolving around lawn maintenance. Many homeowners take great pride in their lawn but would gladly give up the work it takes to maintain. That is exactly the case for most people that choose to hire a landscaper. The robotic mower gives you back your relaxing Sundays where you can enjoy the weather rather than pushing a lawnmower back in forth in the heat!
In reality, the ideal way to cut your lawn is to cut a very small amount each day. First of all, this allows your lawn to always have that “freshly cut” look. Most homeowners either cut on a regular interval or when they realize it’s way past due for a trim! Obviously, having a landscaper at your house every day or mowing your lawn yourself every day isn’t very feasible. Secondly, constantly cutting in small increments allows for very small and fine grass clippings. You know longer need to worry about cleaning up or bagging your clippings. These small size clippings actually act as fertilizer and keep your lawn healthy. Basically, a robotic mower cuts your grass in the most ideal way possible without the added cost or work.
Most of the Husqvarna Automower functions are controllable through the companion smartphone app. This allows for easy customization and tweaking, whenever you want. When your purchase your automower, we will come out to set up the mowing area. For example, you must mark the perimeter and any obstacles (such as lawn decorations, fire pits, sheds). After that, you can use the app for many other customized settings. The app controls the cutting schedule, the distance to cut from the boundary, cutting height, and cutting path angle.
Husqvarna has really thought ahead when designing their Automower. While there are a couple of other robotic mowers available, the Husqvarna is really the best one on the market. Here are just a few of the features that we love on the machine.
- Anti-theft system to alert and track if mower is stolen
- Charging station that mower returns to when needed to charge itself
- Multiple options so you can select the best automower for your needs
- Can cut at night, in the rain, or while you are on vacation
- Cheaper than riding mowers
- Will pay itself off over it’s lifespan compared to hiring a landscaper
- Long battery life of 5-7 years or more depending on use
- Powerful motor and rugged design that allows mowing over slopes and hills
- Auto blade stop safety feature
The Husqvarna Automower is sure to hold up well into the future without requiring you to upgrade. Many possible upgrades could be implemented with a simple app update. Your needs will determine if the Husqvarna Automower is the best robotic mower. However, it is clear that it comes with features and innovations not found on other offerings.
