As the demand of robotic mowers has dramatically increased over the last few years, so has the range of the products and models on the market. The latest models to enter the marketplace are the Husqvarna 520, 550 and 535 Automowers. These 500-series robotic mowers have been specially developed for professional use, within open public spaces.

Some may assume that robotic lawn mowers are only used in gardens or small lawns but as with all technologies, the growth in demand has allowed for engineers to design mowers that can handle many acres of parkland or public green spaces. The low-noise, emission-free, hands-free, automatic robotic mowers are becoming increasingly popular in universities, schools, estates, council owned land and sports facilities. Considering the commercial benefits, its clear to see why.

The flexibility of a robotic lawn mower is probably what makes them most appealing. In comparison to the traditional lawnmower, the robotic equivalent is a lot smaller, quieter and autonomous. In fact, they are so quiet, the robots can easily run throughout the night without impacting those nearby at unsociable hours and it means you are not disturbing the public throughout the day.

Not only are they practical but they are also incredibly environmentally friendly which in the public eye is always considered a positive. Research has shown that using a traditional petrol lawnmower for only one hour can produce as much pollution as driving a car for four hours. The robotic lawnmower however, significantly reduces your horticultural carbon footprint, is energy efficient and doesn’t omit any emissions.

The GPS system, automatic passage sensors and weather timer means the robot lawnmowers can manage even the most intricate areas of lawn with ease without leaving any visible tracks due to its lightweight build and cutting patterns. These well-constructed robot mowers are designed to handle steep slopes, banks and verges without any issues and leaving no moss or clippings to rake or dispose of afterwards. The Automower 535 AWD is an example of this and is able to mow grassy banks up to 35 degrees, where ride-on or even pedestrian mowers can pose a challenge to get to or even a health and safety hazard in some cases.

There are further automatic mowers available in the professional mower range, such as the new Husqvarna 520 and 550 models. These are designed with high-quality, brushless motors, stainless bearings and rubber sealing ensure long-lasting functionality in the tough outdoors. Their rubber bumper increases durability, while a more robust user interface reduces the risk of tampering. The reliable boundary wire and the on-board GPS ensure Husqvarna Automower always stays in the working area and covers the entire lawn, even in highly complex areas. And thanks to the unique guide wire concept, it always quickly and automatically  finds its way back to the charging station.

To withstand heavy use, it’s essential to keep sports fields such as football pitches in pristine condition. During wet weather, tractor and ride on mowers can cause more harm than good, often leaving tracks when the tyres sink into the ground, reducing the quality of the pitch and increasing chance of player injury.

Thanks to Automower’s low weight, it leaves no visible tracks and can mow in wet conditions without damaging the turf. The cut quality is excellent, while the nutrients and water content of the grass clippings keep the soil healthy without leaving any debris on the playing surface, making robot lawnmowers ideal for any sports clubs or pitch owners.

But what if it gets stolen you ask yourself? Don’t worry, most models are equipped with a theft alarm and GPS tracker. And with the minimalistic interface featuring only a start/stop button, it means if someone was to walk near the mower or press the stop button, it can easily be restarted without any prior knowledge of using the machine.

In terms of financial investment, it is a no brainer. The robots don’t require any manpower and can run for up to 270 minutes at one time. And since professional robotic mowers are all prepared for Fleet Services, you can monitor and manage them from anywhere in the world on your smart devices, leaving your lawns and green spaces looking immaculate all year round without even lifting a finger.

In short, you save time, money and energy, which we can all agree we need a lot more of.
