How close does it mow to fences and shade sail poles?
Does a boundary wire emit a good signal from under a pacer?
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.
How does it handle things like mowing the nature strip, or places where the front and back yard are separated by a fence? Can you put it in these places for ad-hoc mowing?
The mowing areas are defined by a boundary wire, which emits a signal that the mower knows which side of the wire it is on. It depends on how wide a strip is. We have a narrow neck in our front lawn that it doesn't navigate too well. In our back yard we have a 1.5 m wide pathway that it seems to handle OK. We have a narrow strip up either side of our property which I mow with a petrol mower every couple of months. I have three separate mowing areas enclosed by the one boundary wire, in total there is around 800 m of wire on/in the ground. In the front yard I buried it under ground about 100-150 mm to protect it from vandalism and I buried it 150 mm + around our compost heap and fire heap, so I could rake and burn brush without damaging the wire. You can adjust the boundary wire any time you need to.
I hope that answers your question. Have a nice day.
Where is a web site to look and get more info on these please?
And what model is the solar one? That sounds interesting.
Hhhmmm? I couldn't really find an Australian website for this, but this site is one I found :- http://www.energymatters.com.au/renewable-news/em270/ and this website is an American one :- http://www.robotshop.com/eu/en/husqvarna-automower-solar-hybrid-robot-lawn-mower.html Pretty sure if you go to any local Husqvarna dealer, they can get one in for you. :) I hope that helps.
Have a nice day.
can you give me a price on the units all of them and how much the blade,s are (per set)
Sorry, I can't give you any prices on these machines, as I do not sell them. We bought ours on line two years ago, at a price I considered to be equal to or less than a ride on mower. Our ride on is at the end of its days, and my young man is reluctant to help the old fart with the yard work. The blades however we have been able to purchase on line from Hong Kong for 60 clams for 30 blades. When you buy anything, anywhere you are always open to market forces. If you look around you will find what you are looking for. If you look on "Youtube" you will see plenty of examples of other peoples experience's with this product. Tip, go for a solar model if you can.
I must say It is an extremely good product, with or without the solar option.
I hope this helps, have a nice day.
