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!
We bought our Automower almost two years ago to the day. I was sceptical at first, but I have found that it is a very fine product for lawn mowing. Our property is just shy of an acre and has around 80 trees on it. Considering all of the obstacles, it does a fine job.
After 1854 hrs of mowing over that time, it has averaged 17.83hrs per week mowing at a cost of 18c/week. A caveat is that the blades are a little costly, so we bought them on line. A little thought needs to be put into setting it up too. But can be modified later. Includin...
Questions & Answers
How long should the batteries (in hours) last in these mowers
what is the max recommended area to maintain? I have approx 1 acre of land to mow. that is excluding buildings. 1 acre of actual gras area to mow. Which model is best suited and the price.
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.
