One of the major reasons some people decide not to invest in a robotic mower is the need to install and maintain perimeter wires. While you can find some commercial robot lawn mowers that can work from satellite navigation, for smaller areas, it has never been good enough … until now!
No more perimeter wires
Husqvarna, a leader in the robotic lawn mowing market, is about to launch its first virtual boundary robotic lawn mower for private gardens. The new satellite navigation system enables these machines to work within virtual boundaries removing the need to install perimeter and guide wires in your garden!
The Husqvarna Automower® NERA is a great solution for lawns of all sizes, with three different models that range from 2200 m2 – 5000 sqm and all controlled via the Husqvarna Automower Connect App where you can define your work mowers’ areas and stay-out zones and more!
Husqvarna’s history of innovation in the lawn mowing category dates back more than 25 years, when they launched the world’s first robotic lawn mower. Since then, they’ve continued to push the envelope with cutting-edge technologies like their EPOS (Exact Positioning Operating System). This satellite navigation system was originally designed for commercial users, but has since been adapted for use in Husqvarna’s domestic robotic lawnmowers.
The Automower® NERA is a top-of-the-line robotic lawnmower that operates with the 2-3 cm precision. It can take on rough terrain and slopes with up to 50% inclination making it a great robot mower for hills. The mower is also equipped with an EPOS plug-in kit, which will be sold as a separate accessory. This kit allows the mower to be connected to a power supply and controlled via a mobile app. The Automower® NERA is a high-end product that will make lawn care easier than ever.
At the moment, there is no word on the price. However, for comparison, you can find the AUTOMOWER® 115H for small, residential gardens at around $1400, whereas the AUTOMOWER® 435X AWD for larger gardens and slopes around $4500. See more on the Husqvarna website.
This is a huge development for robotic lawn mowers and will likely increase the adoption rate of these machines. It’s also great news for people with smaller gardens who have been hesitant to invest in a robotic mower because of the installation and maintenance requirements associated with traditional models. If you’re one of those people, keep your eyes peeled for Husqvarna’s new virtual boundary robotic lawn mowers!
