How to install your Husqvarna Automower®

Owning a Husqvarna robotic lawn mower is all about convenience — and that starts with the simple installation process. Here’s a quick guide to walk you through installing your Automower®.


Begin by taking a look at your lawn. To minimize the risk of having your robot lawn mower getting stuck or damaged, clear the grass of all rocks, twigs, tools, toys and other similar obstacles. If the grass is taller than four inches, we recommend cutting it with a regular lawn mower one last time.

1. Place the charging station


Place the charging station on flat ground at the edge of the cutting area with some free space around it. Make sure the station is free from sunlight, out of reach of sprinklers and within 50 feet of a power outlet. 

2. Charge the battery


Once the charging station is in place, it’s time to charge your robotic mower. Put the robotic mower in the charging station and move on to the next step. Charging an empty battery takes 80-100 minutes.

3. Lay the boundary wire


The boundary wire is put along the edges of the lawn to define the cutting area. Simply attach it to the ground with the special nails enclosed in the package and the robotic mower will know exactly where to turn. Put “islands” of wire around flowerbeds and bushes to keep the mower from running into them.

4. Lay the guide wire


The purpose of the guide wire is to lead the Husqvarna Automower® back to the charging station when needed. Connect one end to the station and place the wire straight across the longest part of your lawn, so the robotic mower can easily find it. The other end is attached to the boundary wire where they intersect. Both the boundary and the guide wire are then connected to the charging station.

5. Relax


Turn on your Husqvarna Automower®, select your four-digit pin code, adjust the cutting height and set the work hours. That’s it! The robotic mower will charge until ready and then begin mowing. Congratulations! You have officially mowed the lawn for the last time.
