The Husqvarna Automower 450X is a top of the range robotic lawnmower, made in the UK. Suitable for huge areas (up to 5000 square metres), the Automower can handle complex lawns, tough terrain and slopes up to a 45% incline. Imagine how much time and effort. The mower automatically cuts the lawn, wheels itself back to the charging station when its batteries need a boost, and can cope with even narrow passages.
Husqvarna have decided not to include installation kits with their latest series of Automowers. This is because not everyone’s gardens are the same; not every needs the same amount of wire, the same number of staples, or the same set up. This means you save money because you don’t end up with a lot of equipment that you won’t end up using. Select which installation kit will the most suitable one for your lawn, and purchase that, along with any additional boundary wire and staples as need, when you order your new robotic mower. Position your charging station (on flat ground in the middle of the cutting area, with space around it, near a power outlet and out of reach of sprinklers). After you’ve done that, it’s just a case of charging the battery (somewhere between 80 and 100 minutes from empty), laying the guide wire, connecting everything up and sending your new little Automower off to work.
Husqvarna Automowers work differently from other lawnmowers. To prevent unattractive tracks forming on your lawn, your new Automower will work in seemingly random patterns. This helps gives a smooth, carpet-like finish. The razor sharp carbon steel cutting blades cut the grass little and often, to give a perfectly groomed finish. The cutting system is not only effective, it is also very quiet. When your lawnmower is working all the time, it has to be.
If you have some areas of longer grass (underneath garden furniture, for example), simply move your furniture out of the way and chose the spot cutting setting. The Automower will cut in tight spirals until the longer grass is trimmed back down to where it should be. At that point, the Automower 450X will return to automatic mode and continue to cut as usual.
The settings panel is simple, and easy to use. Personalise your new mower to suit you, change height of cut, set your PIN, activate the anti-theft alarm and set the timer (not everyone wants their mower running 24-7, but if you do, you can). This model even boasts GPS assisted navigation for fantastically precise handling of even the most complicated gardens. With the included Automower Connect you can receive status messages to your smartphone, and even remotely control your lawnmower from anywhere in the world. Further benefits of a ‘smart’ lawnmower are security; you can receive alarm notifications and track the whereabouts of your lawnmower via GPRS in the case of theft.
The Husqvarna Automower 450x features a clever weather timer. All by itself, the mower will cut more frequently when your grass is growing quickly, and in summer droughts, or when it’s too hot for the grass to grow, the mower will cut less often. This helps reduce wear on your lawn, while simultaneously improving the life of your mower. As the Husqvarna Automower range is weather proof, it can run whenever you like. Husqvarna designed their mower to withstand the harsh climate in Scandinavian countries, so it’ll be able to handle a bit of British weather.
Husqvarna have designed their Automowers to be very energy efficient, and therefore it operates at a fraction of the cost of a conventional lawnmower. Your mower will typically run for 260 minutes on a single 75 minute charge, and there’s no petrol to buy or costly annual servicing to have to worry about.

About HusqvarnaBelieve it or not, Husqvarna did not start off by manufacturing any type of garden machinery at all. Instead they were established in 1689 as a weapons foundry supplying the Swedish Armed Forces. During the subsequent years, diverse and varied products have been produced, from sewing machines and cast iron kitchen equipment through to bicycles and motorbikes. It wasn't until 1959 that Husqvarna finally made its first chainsaws and engine-driven lawnmowers. The company's reputation for build quality and durability of product has never been in question. This is probably the reason for their line of professional petrol chainsaws being so popular with forestry workers across the globe.
Husqvarna are not afraid to innovate either, introducing the robotic, solar powered Automower® in 1995 and continually looking to improve their existing products by listening to their customers. Jumping onto the grass recycling bandwagon, they also manufacture some of the best mulching lawnmowers available, incorporating Bioclip® technology into the vast majority of their petrol lawn mowers. Be left in no doubt, if you buy any product from the Husqvarna garden machinery stable, you will be buying into Swedish quality that is built to last.
