Husqvarna Celebrates 1,000,000 Robotic Mowers
That's a lot of mowers. Did you pay attention to the counter? That was counting by 10,000 at a time.
Husqvarna started in 1995 producing solar mowers. In an effort to help with a more green society and get rid of emissions, they created a mower that was more efficient and needed no gas to run. On top of that, it was automatic.
As of April 2017, Husqvarna leads the global market with it's products in the robotic mower industry. It's no surprise that they will continue to stay ahead of the curve given their mission to succeed in the market.
Celebrating 1,000,000 environmentally friendly robotic mowers is a milestone for the Group. More than twenty years ago, we created the robotic mower market and have developed the market ever since. We naturally have a strong market leadership within this category while many of our competitors still are fairly new in the market. We see that in many countries the market for robotic mowers still remain small, while others have grown substantially - meaning sizeable growth opportunities in this exciting segment remains. Our aim is to maintain our leadership position by providing the most reliable, safe and efficient products and solutions
CEO & President, Husqvarna Group
With the over 20 years of experience in the robotic mower industry, Husqvarna has learned how to increase better cuts and a better handling of yards with complex gardens or landscaping with its robotic mowers. They are definitely trying to make the lawn cutting process completely autonomous.
A robotic mower is energy efficient and has almost no emissions during use. The electricity consumption for maintaining a 1,000m² lawn is approximately equal to a 11W light bulb. Today it is possible to control, program and track your robotic mower via a smartphone or tablet app as well as easily control the watering and lawn care from anywhere, anytime.
To be clear, this does not only include the Husqvarna Automower lineup, but also brands such as Gardena, McCulloch and Flymo. All are designed to be an automatic system to help with lawn care and more.
Kai also mentioned, “Our advanced robotic mower solutions have created our market leading position. All our robotic mowers are designed in Sweden and produced at our state of the art plants in Europe, before they are shipped all over the world. As the market leader we are committed to continue stand at the forefront, delivering the best end-customer solutions as well as continuously evolve our offer based on how people connect and engage within this area”.
