Husqvarna Ceora AutomowerAttendees will have the chance to see the latest in robotic mower technology with the Husqvarna Ceora Large Area Automower. These mowers are using precise satellite navigation with virtual boundaries which eliminates the hassle of physical wires. Quick definitions of work areas and stay-out zones accommodate optimal use of the turf, while aerating is made easier without the risk of damage wires. The robotic mower travels between work areas on defined transport paths, while temporary stay-out zones can be created for more flexible turf management. Cutting systematically in parallel tracks the Ceora is designed for maintaining large areas and is ideal for pitches, parks, estates, etc. You can also define work areas and set a schedule where various times and different grass heights are specified. Schedule one pitch for a morning cut, and another for an afternoon cut at a different cutting height. Frequent systematic high-precision mowing offers the perfect result when only cutting a small amount each time.
