Husqvarna AWD Automower Tackles Tough Slopes
One of the highlights from the Husqvarna booth from this past GIE was the forward steps the company has made in the world of automowing. They plan on releasing two new models to the Automower Series, designed to “increase the flexibility, productivity, and safety within the commercial space.” The new Husqvarna AWD Automowers are scheduled for a release in 2020.
What Has Husqvarna to Say About The New AWD Automowers?
“Delivering innovative, advanced solutions and products for green space professionals and consumers is the driving force behind everything we do at Husqvarna. As a pioneer in the robotic lawnmower space for the last 25 years, the enhancements we’ve driven are leading to new opportunities for professionals to revolutionize their own businesses. Using new technology to drive our robotics and green space management segments improve the customer experience, and we are extremely excited about the path forward.”
-Earl Bennett, President of Husqvarna Brand Division North America
What Can We Expect From The Husqvarna AWD Automower?
The main thing that these mowers bring to the party will be a huge asset for those of you who manage yards with significant slopes; All Wheel Drive comes on both of the new models. With this design feature, the Husqvarna AWD Automowers can both tackle 35° while maintaining almost a full acre of turf. Since the Husqvarna tech optimizes the control over each individual wheel, these mowers can run in challenging conditions, like rain. They’ve even beefed up the construction for improved durability and reliability.
The Husqvarna 535 AWD Automower comes equipped with Husqvarna’s cloud-based Fleet Services management system. This lets operators monitor and control an unlimited number of robo mowers. This model is really geared more toward the professional user.
Meanwhile, the brand is also releasing a residential version. The Husqvarna 435X AWD Automower was created to provide consumers a time-saving, safer approach to dealing with mowing on slopes. It features an ultra-silent drive, a weather timer, and remote object detection. It also features a high-resolution color display.
