Husqvarna launches wire-free mower for private gardens
New range supports the EPOS satellite navigation system, which lets the user create virtual cutting zones with the help of a mobile phone
3 November 2022
Husqvarna is set to launch its first boundary-wire free robotic lawn mower for private gardens in early 2023. The new range, named NERA, supports the EPOS satellite navigation system, which lets the user create virtual cutting zones with the help of a mobile phone. This offers a total flexibility of deciding where to cut, when and at what height.
As part of an even smoother Automower experience, the NERA range can also handle more complex terrains and steep slopes, and steers away from unwanted objects on the lawn. Husqvarna Automower NERA comes in three different models that cater to lawns from 2200m2 to 5000m2.
More than 25 years ago, Husqvarna launched the world’s first robotic lawn mower and changed the lawn mowing category forever. With Husqvarna´s latest Automower, a new chapter of lawn care is about to begin for consumers. Physical boundary wires can finally be replaced by Husqvarna´s satellite navigation system, EPOS. Husqvarna EPOS is a well-proven technology, as it was launched for the professional segment two years ago. Husqvarna Automower NERA can operate with a precision of 2 to 3cm and take on rough terrain and slopes with up to 50% inclination. For the NERA range to operate without physical boundary wires, it needs to be complemented by an EPOS plug-in kit, sold as a separate accessory.
NERA comes in three models, all of which support boundary wire-free technology. Husqvarna Automower 430X NERA and 450X NERA can cut lawns of up to 3200m2 and 5000m2 respectively, while 320 NERA is optimal for lawns up to 2200m2. Both mowers in the 400 series come equipped with an object avoidance feature, based on radar technology, that helps the mower detect and avoid common objects like toys and garden tools. This reduces the stress of always keeping the lawn tidy and reduces the number of unwanted stops. All models come with improved terrain handling, which reduces the wear and tear of the lawn, and can also be washed easily with a hose.
“We are thrilled to launch the boundary wire-free solution for private garden owners, as we know that many people have been waiting for this ever since we first introduced that technology in the professional market,” said Brian Parker, national business manager of Husqvarna Ireland. “NERA really represents the next generation of smart lawn care, with less effort and more precise mowing.”
