WORLD LEADER IN ROBOTIC MOWING SINCE 1995.
Automower® is a proven and reliable solution to keep sports grass in pristine condition. It delivers an excellent cut quality at all times, while the nutrients and water content of the grass clippings result in a stronger, healthier turf.
FOR SPORTS FIELDS.FOR GOLF COURSES.
Automower® for Sport.
A golf course or sports field, be it for football or athletics, is often heavily used and the grass requires extra tending and care. The maintenance can often be difficult, and the need for fertilising, watering and minute care can be both expensive and time-consuming.
An Automower® robotic mower works according to your schedule so as not to interfere, and cuts the grass every day or night, adding small, quick-composting clippings which don’t need collecting. These clippings serve as a constant source of natural fertiliser and moisture that strengthen and irrigate the grass, creating a greener and denser lawn.
Conventional cylinder mowers often create unwanted tracks and grass clumps, especially in wet conditions. Thanks to its low weight, Automower® creates no compaction and leaves no tracks, even in heavy rain.
THE BENEFITS OF HUSQVARNA AUTOMOWER®
FOR SPORTS FIELDS
Automower® offers the possibility to cut costs while improving the overall turf quality and shoot density, resulting in a healthier and stronger pitch. Automower® also improves your pitch’s ability to withstand a busy match schedule and hours of intense training. Since the robotic mower cuts the grass every day, it minimizes the impact on the grass.
The result is a pitch to be really proud of, giving the players the best possible conditions for honing their skills to perfection.
AUTOMOWER® CLUB SOLUTION
Automower® Club Solution enables one single installation for an entire pitch, including football and rugby. It has been designed to work with Automower® 550, allowing two or three mowers to mow the area simultaneously with only a single boundary wire outside the playing surface. This eliminates the risk of a damaged boundary wire during turf treatment such as aeration or scarification. Automower® Club Solution also includes a higher cutting disc speed which improves performance on sports turf with high grass growth.
FOR GOLF COURSES
Besides creating outstanding turf at a lower cost, Automower® allows you to become more sustainable. The robotic mower offers fume-free operation and low energy consumption. By cutting the grass a little at a time, Automower® reduces moss growth and the need for chemicals, delivering a carpet-like finish at all times.
The premium cutting standard on semi-roughs has been highly appreciated by both players and greenkeepers around Europe for some years. Now, however, Husqvarna offers a kit that allows you to lower the cutting height to 10mm, providing the players at your golf course perfectly cut and nicely looking fairways at all times.
Handing over the lawn care part of the workload to a robotic mower reduces your overall investment costs compared to a conventional mower, while freeing up time to take care of irregularities, exposed or worn areas and other labour-intensive tasks.
Automower® also takes care of your grass when you want it to – day or night – according to your schedule, so as not to interfere with players’ training sessions, golf rounds or matches. It all makes Automower® a very sound investment.
A digital management tool, Husqvarna Fleet Services™, gives you instant, updated information on every Automower® robotic mower on your golf course, sports pitch or pitches. Via a phone, tablet or laptop you’re able to see detailed statistics of each machine, change mowing schedules and cutting heights, get notifications when machines are due for service – and much, much more!
Coming soon, Husqvarna CEORA™ is a revolutionary, robotic solution for grass areas of up to 50,000 m2 – that’s ten times the maximum area that Automower® can handle! The sheer scale makes CEORA™ an industry game-changer, marking the start of a new era in commercial turf care management.
Using systematic mowing technology, CEORA™ offers cuts in parallel paths and navigates with a precision of 2-3cm thanks to Husqvarna’s satellite navigation system, EPOS. In the future, CEORA™ will open up for a wide range of accessories, including help with fertilizing, lawn striping or collecting golf balls.

Mowing Without Physical Boundaries.
Automower® EPOS does not require boundary or guide wires to define the working area. The boundary wire is replaced by a virtual boundary and GPS ensures even area coverage as well as easy movement between designated work areas, even on paved surfaces. Precise area management can include different cutting heights for separate zones and also varying cutting schedules for each zone. Installations can also be easily changed by recreating the virtual boundary, and “stay out” zones can easily be set up. Virtual boundaries allow for trouble-free ground maintenance such as aeration.
Automower® EPOS is a satellite-powered guidance technology for robotic mowing. Satellite signals are received by both the mower and the reference station. To achieve an accuracy of 2-3 cm, Real-Time Kinematic Global Navigation Satellite System (RTK-GNSS) is used. A fixed EPOS reference station is required to broadcast precision correction data to the mower. EPOS requires an unimpeded view of the satellites for signal data to be received and correction data to be sent. Tall buildings and dense trees close to or within the installation can block satellite data.
In partnership with Viva Energi, Husqvarna offers a sustainable and low impact solar charge solution designed to provide 100% green energy to power your Automower®. It removes the need for a 230V mains power supply to power your installation and charge station. Ideally suited when working in remote locations where a mains power supply is not available, or when you would prefer a 100% green solution. The solar energy is stored in a battery cell, allowing the Husqvarna Automower® to operate 24 hours a day during the cutting season.
