In preparation for the summer season, Husqvarna Group announced on May 4 that it has produced its 500,000th robotic mower at its plant in the United Kingdom. The robotic mower also celebrates 20 years of excellence in 2015.
In 1995, Husqvarna Group introduced the Solar Mower, the world’s first-ever solar-powered robotic mower. Now, the Husqvarna Group sells robotic mowers under the brands Husqvarna, Gardena and Flymo.
With a mindset of continually making improvements, Husqvarna has made the mowers more robust and easier to install and use. A robotic mower is energy efficient and has almost no emissions during use. The electricity consumption for maintaining a 1,000-square-meter lawn has been reduced by approximately 70 percent between the second and third generations of robotic mowers. During the past 20 years, much effort has also been invested to reduce the product’s noise level to a minimum.
Today, the Husqvarna Automower is one of the market leaders in robotic mowers. “People across the world are replacing their conventional lawn mowers for robotic mowers at an increasing speed, freeing homeowners from the chore of mowing, and giving them an always great-looking lawn,” said Olle Markusson, director of product management at Husqvarna Group.
The third generation of Husqvarna Automower can manage slopes of up to 45 percent and is equipped with a variety of features, such as GPS navigation, which helps the robotic mower keep track of which part of the garden should be cut, as well as a weather timer, which makes the mower automatically adapt its daily cutting routine to the actual growth rate of the lawn.
