Here’s How Husqvarna Automower Simplifies Lawn Care
You’ve heard the rumors about a solution to your lawn care woes, but could they possibly be true? Could it be that a tiny little robot could save you from hours of pushing a heavy mower in the hot sun?
Good news, friend! No longer is the robotic lawnmower a fantastical dream. The future is here with Husqvarna Automower.
Not only will this incredible little machine mow your lawn for you, but it will keep your grass at a perfect length all summer long!
How does Husqvarna Automower work? We’re glad you’re curious because, in this blog, we will explain what it is, how to install it and how it creates permanent lawn perfection.
Ready to step into the future of lawn care? Good, then let’s begin!
What is Husqvarna Automower?
A Husqvarna Automower consists of four key components: the mower unit, a charging station, boundary wires and guide wires. All of these parts are essential for automating the perfect lawn. We’ll take a closer look at each of them below.
The mower is a compact plastic unit with four wheels. Husqvarna offers a variety of different models that work for a wide range of yard types, anywhere from the smallest city lot to a hilly rural backyard.
The best part, of course, is the mower rolls along on its own without you having to push or pull it. The mower is also completely electric, saving you money on gas and saving the environment.
Each mower comes with a charging station that you can install on your property. When the mower runs low on battery, it will automatically return to the charging station on its own. How does it find its way back, you ask? That’s what the guidewires and boundary wires are for.
Guidewires are the lifeline of a Husqvarna Automower. These wires sit a couple of inches below the ground and lead from anywhere in the yard back to the charging station. So, if the mower needs a charge, it can always seek out a guidewire to lead it to the charger.
But what’s to stop the robot lawnmower from venturing away from your yard? The answer is the boundary wires. Like the guidewires, these wires sit inches beneath the ground around the edges of your property and the spots where you don’t want the mower to mow. When the mower encounters a boundary wire, it stops, turns around and keeps mowing in bounds.
How Do You Install Husqvarna Automower?
The only human labor required with an Automower occurs during installation. Someone needs to set up the charging station and lay the guidewires and boundary wires around the property. Husqvarna has a handy video detailing what this process entails on their YouTube channel.
While the installation process is relatively simple, it can be time-consuming to install the equipment in your yard manually. There can also be some trial and error involved when making sure you place the wires in the right spots.
For these reasons, we recommend having a Husqvarna dealer professionally install the unit. At AOS, we have been a Husqvarna dealer for many years and know all of the best practices for installation. We also have the tools necessary to lay the wire below ground and can help you find the ideal spot for the charging station.
By letting industry-leading experts handle the installation for you, you will truly be able to enjoy carefree lawn care. Plus, your dealer can also help you with any maintenance or repair needed over time.
How Does Husqvarna Automower Work?
Once the mower is installed, you get to sit back and enjoy watching the mower do its magic. Let’s take a look at some of the best benefits of owning an Automower.
It may seem odd to you to have a mower that mows every day. After all, why would you need to mow more than once a week? The answer is simple: Husqvarna Automower mows every day to keep the grass at the perfect length all summer long!
Don’t you hate looking out your window and seeing unsightly, overgrown grass? You can say goodbye to that feeling by getting an Automower! The amazing machine diligently works to keep your lawn immaculate.
Peace and Quiet
Now, you may be cringing at the thought of having a mower constantly running because of all the noise. It would be terrible to have a regular old gas-powered mower roaring around your yard all day long.
Fortunately, an Automower is no ordinary lawnmower! Since it’s completely electric, there is no roar of an engine to worry about. Instead, the little machine mows quietly (only 50-69 dB of noise) so that you can enjoy a peaceful day outside while your lawn gets tended to.
Streak and Clump-Free Lawns
Another pet peeve about mowing many owners have is the streaks and clumps a typical mower will leave behind. These unsightly lawn marks result from only mowing when the grass gets too long and mowing in a rigid pattern. And even if you don’t leave clumps, it’s probably because you bag your clippings, which is also a laborious and time-consuming task.
Automower leaves those lawncare woes behind. Because it mows every day, the clippings it leaves behind are tiny, usually only a fraction of an inch long. These clippings will never clump. Instead, they will fall to the soil and fertilize the lawn.
The mower also takes care of streaks by mowing in a free movement pattern instead of rigid rows. This pattern allows the mower to find the areas that need cutting and efficiently take care of them. And it leaves no streaks behind, just great-looking grass!
Free from Danger and Damage
You may worry about a robot mowing all the time around your kids, pets and lawn decorations. The good news is Husqvarna designed the Automower to handle obstacles gently. If it comes across an obstacle, it will gently bump into it, stop, turn around and start moving in a different direction.
There is also no need to worry about the mower accidentally running over something. Every Automower features small retractable blades. So, if it were to run over something, like a stick or an apple, the blades would retract, leaving both the mower and the object unscathed.
It’s natural to worry about theft when you have a mower that mows on its own. But there’s no need to fret with a Husqvarna mower. Each unit comes with incredible security features, including a unique pin code, charging station compatibility and GPS tracking.
So, if someone were to come and grab your mower, they wouldn’t get very far with it. For one thing, they would have to put in a unique pin code, or else an alarm would sound. Plus, once the mower’s battery died, they wouldn’t be able to charge it again because it would only work with the charger on your property. And, best of all, you could locate your unit using GPS tracking directly on your phone.
These are just a few of the many amazing security features on an Automower. So, you’ll never have to worry about losing it.
Even though an Automower mows on its own, you still have complete control over it. You can monitor your mower directly from your smartphone! Using the Husqvarna app, you can dictate when you want the mower to mow and track its progress. It’s the best way to have complete dominion over your lawn without having to break a sweat!
