Things to consider when buying a new Rider

Do you have a big lawn to mow? Here are a few things to keep in mind before you buy a ride-on mower.

Choosing the right Rider for the job mainly depends on the type of grass you will cut and what the garden looks like. With our Combi cutting decks you have two cutting techniques to choose from. Rear ejection or BioClip®. Here are a few things that distinguish them from each other.

Rear ejection for taller grass

If you are planning to cut taller, wilder grass, or coarser types of grass, it’s better to go for a ride-on mower with rear ejection cutting deck that can manage large amounts of grass.

BioClip® for finer lawns

Do you have a well-maintained lawn that is mowed a lot? Then BioClip® is the most suitable for your purposes. The finely cut clippings return to the lawn as fertilizer. All of our Rider models have this option.

All-Wheel Drive

If your lawn can be slippery or is steep in places, or if you intend to use the ride-on mower all year round, AWD (All-Wheel Drive) is a great investment. It gives you better traction when you need it.

Professional or homeowner

If you are looking for a ride-on mower for professional use all year round, with larger areas to maintain, it is best to go with our advanced Riders, such as the R 422Ts AWD, equipped with things like headlights, hour meter with service minder and a premium seat. If you are a homeowner you are probably better off with one of the smaller models for convenient storage. Or the Rider Battery, with no direct emissions, low noise and a running time of up to 90 minutes.

Easy to drive and manoeuvre

All our Riders have front-mounted cutting decks, so that you have better control over your working area. This type of cutting deck also allows you to reach under bushes and get closer to fences and walls.

We have also a unique articulation of the steering which our Riders extremely easy to handle. You work more efficiently, and get great results faster, with less effort. In addition, a wide range of accessories helps you complete other garden tasks all year round. With or without All-Wheel Drive – the decision is yours.

Things to keep in mind when buying a Husqvarna Rider:


Look for all accessories like a sweeper to collect grass, leaves and debris. Moss rake, scarifier, spreader and trailer for lawn preparation and a snow blade, a snow blower or a front-mounted brush to clear entrances and paths year around.

    Husqvarna launches Apple Watch app for Husqvarna Automower®

    As the first producer of outdoor power products in the world, Husqvarna has launched an app for Apple Watch. With the Automower® Connect Apple Watch app you always have the status of your robotic mower at an arms reach – no matter where you are.

    Husqvarna Automower® Connect is a smartphone app that allows you to interact with your robotic mower from wherever you are. Now it’s time for the sequel. The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app makes it even easier and more enjoyable to own the Husqvarna Automower®.

    Key interactions 

    The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app contains the most essential functionalities of the smartphone app. It enables you to quickly start, park, stop and check the status of your robotic mower, right from your wrist. If you are in the supermarket and your daughter wants to let the dog out into the garden, she won’t have to wait until you get home. Simply stop the Automower® with a command from your Apple Watch. There’s also a glance feature, giving you access to the status of your mower with a simple swipe on the watch face.

    Andreas Källming, who has been part of developing the app, explains that designing for Apple Watch requires a whole new approach to interactions compared with when you design for smartphones and tablets.

    “The Apple Watch is not created for you to interact with for more than three or four seconds at a time. You should be able to take action quickly – and then get on with your day. It should liberate you from your smartphone, yet keep you informed and in control”, he says.  

    Your personal digital eco-system

    The market for wearable technology is growing and Andreas Källming sees a future where connected products such as cars, keys, means of identification – and now robotic mowers – will create personal digital eco-systems, that simplifies everyday life for the users.

    “We are always working to have a cutting edge approach to new technology and we continue to look for new ways to make it more fun and convenient to own and use our products”, Källming concludes.

    For a closer look at the watch, take a look at this video.

    The Automower® Connect Apple Watch app is available for Husqvarna Automower® models 320 and 330X. The robotic mower must be equipped with a SIM card. Talk to your dealer for information about pricing and installation.
