World’s first automatic electric solar powered robotic lawn mower

Husqvarna, the world’s largest lawnmower manufacturer, has launched the world’s first automatic electric solar powered robotic lawnmower in the UK.

Hey is it worth £2000 or about $4,000 to never have to mow the lawns again?

Well some who can afford it or those who are affluent gadget freaks will say “Hell yes!” No doubt this will be the first of many, including vacuum cleaners which of course in time will come down in price.

The lawnmower which can be programmed to turn on at certain times or days will cut around 2000 square meters of grass in a user define area, by the use of a metal wire around the edge of the lawn. It also has sensors which allows it to avoid obstacles… like your cat or dog one would hope.

It cuts and spreads the mulch back onto the lawn, thereby reducing the need for chemicals. It will mow for about 40 minutes then return to the charging station to recharge and the included solar panels has apparently increased it cutting time to approximately 50%… and I imagine it’s recharging time as well in places like sunny Australia.

Apparently about 90% of it’s components are recycled… and that’s cool. And I imagine it will also be more carbon friendly since it has a capacity to use green power sources, whereas ye old petrol guzzling, smoke belching, wear your self out trying to start it and drive your neighbors mad with the noise dinosaur will eventually go the same way as the dinosaurs, and that’s a good thing, as is the fact that they also left off the Volvo bumper bar. 🙂
