I know it's Mother's Day today (Happy Mother's Day!) and this would be way up there on my wish list. If I had kids. Or a lawn. Regardless, this is one of those luxuries I aspire to own.
It's as though an eco conscious RoboCop gave birth to a lawnmower. Husqvarna's top of the line automated robotic mower is as beautifully designed as a new sports car and it will mow your lawn without complaining. (Plus, I'd love to see it battle with a Roomba).
No emissions, low noise (see the people pleasantly sleeping in the hammock? lol), low energy consumption, weather-proof and can handle slopes up to 35%... oh, and did I mention? You don't have to mow your own lawn!
The Automower® Solar Hybrid is the world's first fully automatic lawn mower that is partly powered by the sun.
The product uses considerably less energy than any conventional mower. That's because in addition to a charging station, it comes with a large integrated solar panel. When there is daylight available, the solar cells enable the mower to extend its cutting periods before it needs recharging. That means a cut lawn in a shorter time, even lower power consumption and an extended battery life. Suitable for lawns up to 1/2 acre, depending on light conditions.
• With the lift and tilt sensors, if it runs into something it will redirect itself without causing damage:
•The Solar Panel is an additional energy source that gives Automower® extra power directly from the sun:
•With the settings panel the mower can be programmed to fit many different lawns and preferences:
• The cutting height adjustment is easily done from above by turning one large knob:
• When the Automower® needs more power, it finds its own way back to the charging station:
Battery type: NiMH
Typical charging time: 45 min
Typical mow time on one charge: 60 min
Like I said at the beginning of the post, this one is their top of the line and the price reflects that. With a suggested retail price of $3,000.00, you'd better have lots of lawn or lots of disposable income, preferably both.
