Husqvarna has introduced the brand’s first residential, wire-free mowing solution: the Husqvarna Automower 450X and 450XH EPOS. The new models eliminate the need for traditional boundary wire, allowing full control through the Automower Connect App.
The Automower 450X and 450XH EPO Sutilize RTK (real-time-kinematic), a satellite-based technology that improves the precision of position data derived from GPS sources. This enables the mower to work within defined virtual boundaries, providing homeowners with an easy and flexible solution to lawn maintenance. In North America, Husqvarna was first to market RTK technology in robotic mowing with the launch of EPOS(Exact Positioning Operating System) in 2021. After two years of superior performance in the commercial space, the company notes, it’s now bringing this tried-and-true technology to homeowners.
“Husqvarna Automower continues to evolve with new technology to ensure emission-free, virtually silent lawn maintenance,” says Chad Fuhrman, director of product management, North America at Husqvarna Group. “The 450X and 450XH EPOS Automower is a direct result of the proven success of EPOS in our commercial lineup that professionals around the globe have tested.”
Key capabilities and product features of the Automower 450X and 450XH EPOS models include:
- Husqvarna EPOS: The 450X and 450XH EPOSuses high-accuracy RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) to enable virtual boundaries.
- Precise area management: Maintain a complex lawn with a single robotic mower and easily create transport paths and stay-out zones with the Automower Connect App for total control at the push of a button.
- Systematic mowing: Cut up to 2.5 acres with systematic mowing using the 450X and 450XH EPOS, up to double the coverage of randomized mowing.
- Seamless recharging: Recharging is simple because the mower will automatically return to its charging station once the job is complete.
Automower robotic mowers create approximately half the noise volume of traditional mowers. The Automower 450X and 450XH EPOS can run at a volume of as little as 58 decibels (comparable to a conversation between two people).
Both the Automower 450X and 450XH EPOS will be available starting in early March at Husqvarna dealers nationwide.
