Don't waste your money

published

I paid nearly $2000 3 years ago, and since then I have had to have it repaired a total of 6 times, costing roughly another $2000. It is currently broken down again, and I am so very disappointed with it. The single back wheel does not pivot (like a caster) and therefore digs up the grass in areas where it has to turn often, like around trees or in corners, leaving big bare patches of dirt which eventually gets so loose it can't get traction and gets stuck there. When it works it is very satisfying to see it doing the mowing chore, and the lawn looks good, except for the bare patches. My next robot mower will be one with 4 wheels instead of three and a longer guarantee.

Purchased in February 2016 for $1,999.00.

Many Many Many issues!

I love this mower, when it works! Ive only had it for just over two years and It's been to the repair shop at least three times for three or four months at a time. Husqvarna service is atrocious to say the least, I don't think they bother because we are a small and distant market. I will replace it when a decent competitor comes along, I'm tempted to get the new Husqvarna automower but without support there is not point.

Used to love it, now not sure unreliable service support from Husqvana

When my automower worked I loved it...

But for the last 4 months it's been living at Sydney Tools waiting on parts from Husqvana, I've just been told it will be another another 3 weeks before the part arrives. That's now the 4th time I've been told that, so not sure if I will ever get my mower back....

I finally found someone to install it for me!

In Quebec, it's super hard to get our hands on one :O I found : http://www.automowerquebec.com/ They installed it for me and they also offer the installation which is super hard to do yourself properly. If you live in Quebec Canada I can't recommend it more, it saved me so much lawn mowing time!

Does a boundary wire emit a good signal from under a pacer?

I have mine set up so it enters the charging station by travelling over pavers for a distance of about one metre and it has no problem following the boundary wire.

You need a 450X for it to be effective. Check it out on : automowerquebec.com

As far as I am aware there is no maximum area. The model I purchased is the 230ACX and the manual states "40 kWh/month with a working area of 3 000 m²". An acre is about 4 047 m². My yard set up is for roughly 2 800 m², split into three separate areas on one wire. I paid about 5.5k clams all up for our system. I had to buy a signal repeater and an extra 250 m of boundary wire on top of the initial purchase. You will get a different price depending on the dealer you are dealing with and the model you are looking at. Husqvarna have produced a number of better models than the one I have since I bought it, including solar models. You can have two machines running in the one area, but when I looked into it you had to have two distinct charging stations for them, but you really need to talk to Husqvarna about the installation. Personally I would set up one machine in two different areas.
The price I paid roughly as above, but what price can you put on you and your families health? No pollution emissions, no dust, no grass cutting fumes and minimal maintenance.
K, I hope I have answered your questions, have a nice day.
