Husqvarna’s first battery powered ride-on mower, the Rider Battery offers all the comfort and grass cutting performance of a petrol mower but with no emissions and a remarkably quiet running electric motor. As well as being much more environmentally friendly, this also makes the Rider Battery perfect for use in residential areas as you can mow your lawn safe in the knowledge you won’t be disturbing your neighbours.

Key to this combination of performance and convenience are the three electric motors which power the Rider Battery. For the drive system, a potent 1500W electric motor provides a top speed of 7.5km/h. A pedal operated control system supplies fine tuned speed adjustment which, when combined with the Rider Battery’s compact design and an articulated steering system, offers exceptional manoeuvrability even in smaller, more complex gardens.

The Rider Battery’s 85cm stamped steel cutting deck, on the other hand, features two cutting blades powered by a pair of quiet running 800W motors. To achieve a fine finish, the Rider uses Husqvarna’s BioClip® grass mulching system which returns finely mulched cuttings to the lawn as you mow. This simultaneously eliminates the need to stop and dispose of clippings and helps to promote healthy lawn growth by recycling valuable moisture and nutrients. The cutting deck also features an automatic blade engagement system which activates when you lower the deck, while the front mounted design of the deck makes it much easier to access hard to reach areas on your lawn. Furthermore, with easy to use, five-position cutting height adjustment, the Rider Battery is also impressively versatile and allows you to achieve a precise finish on your lawn.

To extend battery life and mowing time, allowing for up to ninety minutes of operation between charges, the Rider Battery also features a power saving system which can be activated in less demanding conditions to conserve energy. This, in addition to large wheels designed to protect your lawn and enhance stability, easily accessible controls, and a comfortable driver’s seat, helps to make using your rider a relaxing and hassle free experience.

So if you are looking for a quiet, clean running and low maintenance lawnmower capable of providing all the comfort and power you would expect from a Husqvarna machine, the Rider Battery is an outstanding choice.

About Husqvarna
Believe 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.
