Getting a robotic mower is more than the first step to a hassle-free garden life. It’s a leap. However, there are a number of easily forgotten smart ways to boost and maintain the performance.

The top-three maintenance tips:

1. The cutting blades 

To keep the robotic mower performing at it’s very best, it is good to keep an extra eye on the cutting blades during the first weeks of use. As with any lawnmower, the cutting result depends on the shape of the blades – and during this period you will learn how much wear and tear your Husqvarna Automower® is subjected to. Remember to clean the mower regularly and replace worn out parts when needed.

2. The battery 

The Husqvarna Automower® battery is maintenance-free and has a life span of 2 – 4 years. The actual number depends on the length of the season, and how many daily work hours the mower puts in. A shortened charging interval means that the battery has to be changed soon, but as long as your lawn is kept at the desired length everything is fine. Replacing the battery is easy and thoroughly described in the manual, but if you feel unsure a licensed Husqvarna dealership is never far away.

3. Winter storage 

When putting away your Husqvarna Automower® for the winter there are a couple of things to bear in mind. Be sure to clean it properly, charge the battery fully and turn off the main power switch. The robotic mower is best-stored standing on all three wheels in a dry and frost-free environment. The guide and boundary wire can be left in, or on, the ground – but the end couplings, normally connected to the charging station, need to be water protected.

The top-three accessories:

Automower® house
This clever attachment protects not only the robotic mower, but also the entire charging station, from exposure to sun and rain. Use it as is – or add stickers or colour for a more personal touch. 

Automower® wall hanger
An effective way to free up more storage space and keep your own personal gardener dry and secure at all times.

Automower® Colour Collection
Personalise your robotic mower with a high quality metallic painted cover – inspired by the four elements: earth, fire, water and air. Designed to fit the 220 AC and 230 ACX models.

Wheel brush kit
The wheel brush kit consists of two heavy-duty brushes, attached underneath the robotic mower. By constantly cleaning the driving wheels they ensure the best possible traction at any given time. 

Remote text message
The Husqvarna GSM module (installed by licenced retailers) makes it possible to interact with your robotic mower from anywhere. Start it or make it return to base. Change pre-installed settings or ask for its coordinates. All you need is a mobile phone. Available for the 220 AC and 230 ACX models.
