Husqvarna® Launches the New 210C Battery-powered Robotic Mower at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show

Charlotte, NC [January 8, 2009] -- Husqvarna launches the 210C Automower designed for small lawns up to 1/8 acre in size. This new Automower offers automatic shut-off, an intuitive keypad, a pin code lock feature for security, plus it is practically silent. Automower 210C cuts when you want it to, rain or shine, day or night. With a cutting time of 2-3 hours per cycle, it gets the job done with less recharging.

How it Works:

• A small wire is staked to the ground below the grass level, or buried just beneath it, around the perimeter of the lawn.
• The on-board navigation system monitors its position relative to the wire, assuring that the unit will stay within it’s boundaries for effective mowing.
• Obstacles or other areas within the lawn that should not be mowed are handled in one of two ways:

o if the object is rigid and at least six inches tall, the mower bumps into it, reverses and starts off in another direction
o other areas, like a flowerbed, are excluded from the cutting area by using the perimeter wire

Product Features:

• Easy to Use: Just put the mower out, let it mow until it’s done or until you pick it up. Then just recharge for next time.
• Emission Free: electrically powered while producing no harmful exhaust emissions and has low energy consumption
• Theft Protected: a personal 4-digit code is required to operate the mower
• Safe and Secure: blades are lightweight and out of reach and will stop as soon as the Automower is lifted from the ground
• Weather Proof: all vital electrical components are well protected from the elements in the enclosed chassis
• Easy to Install: the installation is simple because there is no need to consider the placement and functionality of the charging station like other Husqvarna Automowers. Simply lay the wire, plug it in, and installation is virtually complete
