Which Husqvarna Automower should I buy?
Let us first start by saying there are Husqvarna Automowers that are designed for small gardens, right up to Automowers capable of cutting around 1.25 acres. Small gardens we would recommend the Automower 310. If you are looking for full control of your Husqvarna Automower from your phone then you need to look at the X models like the Husqvarna 315X Automower.
If you have any questions about the Automowers then please pop in to store and we can answer these for you. We have installed many, many Automowers in all different types of garden, so should be able to answer any questions you may have.
Husqvarna have a other questions to consider:
What’s the size of your lawn?
When looking for an Automower you should pick one that can handle the size of your lawn. But remember that cutting capability is generally based on a flat and open lawn, so if your lawn is undulating or there are bushes, it’s better to choose a mower with a greater capacity. This is also important if you don’t want it to cut during the night.
Does your garden have steep banks?
If you have a lawn with steep banks you should pick a mower fit for the job, with good traction and power. Robotic mowers work even when it rains, so pick one with wheels that have a good grip. Husqvarna’s most powerful domestic version is the Automower® 450X, which handles slopes with up to 45% inclination.
Is your garden complex?
If your garden has intricate passages and different sections you have to ensure that your mower is capable of handling a complex garden. A tip is to select a mower with guide wires; they are an easy way to make sure that the cutter can handle the narrowest passages. Don’t forget that Masseys offer an install service.
Make sure that your robotic mower is equipped with a pin code lock, alarm and preferably also a GPS-tracker. If you report your stolen to us, Masseys should be able to blacklist your mower, making future servicing impossible.
Is the display easy to understand?
Most people don’t think about it when selecting a robotic mower, but it’s a good idea to check how the system actually works. Check the manual and have a look at the display to see if it is clear, intuitive and easy to navigate. Remember that even if most settings are done when installing your mower, timer settings and cutting length often change over a season.
Pets and children should not be allowed to be in the same area as the mower, but of course this can happen. You should therefore consider a mower with a cutting disc with retractable blades. Since the mower cuts each day it only cuts a little bit and if a paw or foot gets under the mower, it will not result in a serious injury.
Is there a workshop close by?
When selecting a robotic mower you should also consider how easily available a workshop is. Masseys can help you with repairs, servicing, software updates and winter storage.
Things to consider before you buy:
- Tracks and size of the wheels affects how easily it can get up steep banks
- Is it easy to use and service? It’s annoying if you have to call for service just because the system is hard to understand
- Get a bigger machine if you have a lot of banks and a complex garden
