The top 5 automated mowers in Australia

Husqvarna Automower 430X

A high-end, luxury lawn mower, the Husqvarna Automower 430X makes light work of larger gardens and can easily cope with vast areas that would normally be tackled by ride-on mowers. It has a powerful motor that can even cope with slopes of up to 40% without any issue and is better suited to larger gardens as it might be a bit much, both in terms of price and power, for small spaces. This mower has a great deal of modern technology, only cutting the grass when it needs it by calculating its growth rate, allowing you to customise the cutting time settings using the intuitive menu system. It uses a lithium-ion battery and has carbon steel blades that quietly yet efficiently cut the grass.

Key features:

  • Capable of coping with slopes of up to 40%
  • Covers grassy areas of up to 2200 square metres
  • Great for medium to larger gardens

Bosch Indego 350 Connect Robotic Lawn Mower

Great for lawns up to 350m. sq., the Bosch Indego is fast and intuitive and can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet using the Boscu Smart Gardening app. Unlike some other robotic mowers which work in random patterns, the Indego carries out its task in consecutive rows so that nothing is missed, but there are no stripes to worry about thanks o the LogiCut navigation system. Once it’s been set up, the Indego is completely autonomous and even charges its battery when required as well as letting you know when the blades need to be replaced. It has an 18V lithium-ion battery and can autonomously mow the lawn on an average 30 minute of charge, so it’s quick and efficient.
