Things to keep in mind when you buy a zero-turn mower

A zero-turn mower lets you cut so close around corners that you reduce the need to trim. Here are a few tips on what to think about when you are looking to buy a new zero-turn trimmer.

The zero-turn mower design with its high capacity and swift manoeuvrability originates from typical commercial use. Our zero-turn mowers for landowners are engineered alongside our commercial models. This means they can handle heavy-duty mowing tasks on large areas efficiently, quickly and easily.

Are you a professional or homeowner?

When deciding on a new zero-turn mower the most important factor is the size of the area that you will cut.

Our zero-turn mowers for homeowners are generally smaller, which makes them take up less space when parked and they can also cut smaller passages in the garden. The biggest of the home or landowner models, such as the Husqvarna RZ5426, can handle 2.8 acres per hour.

If you are looking for a new zero-turn mower for professional use, we have a wide range with powerful engines and bigger fuel tanks. The professional models are faster and can handle bigger areas, up to 7 acres per hour for the Husqvarna PZ 72.

Propane

Propane is a great way to lower emissions, fuel costs and possibly get tax benefits. But there are a lot of other benefits to propane as well. A propane engine generally needs fewer repairs since propane doesn’t go stale. If you are looking for full day operation you should also consider getting the optional dual 33lb tanks that hold 14 gallons of fuel for our Husqvarna PZ60P model.

General facts about the Husqvarna zero-turn mower


  • Our zero-turn mowers are durable, with a stable frame and a powerful, reliable engine. All components are designed to withstand demanding operation.
  • A comfortable driver’s environment and efficient vibration dampening make for better comfort and less fatigue.
  • All controls are easy to reach.
  • Large, wide rear wheels put less pressure on the lawn surface, which means they flatten the grass less, and improve accessibility. A low centre of gravity gives traction and stability: an advantage if the ground is uneven.
  • An efficient cooling system is important, if the machine is going to operate at an optimal temperature for long periods - especially on hot days.

    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.
