Husqvarna unveils new virtual boundary robotic mower with systematic cutting

Husqvarna, the pioneer in smart commercial grounds care and robotic mowing, presents an upgrade of Husqvarna Automower® 550 EPOS – the company’s first ever robotic mower with virtual boundary EPOS technology.


The upgrade which will be available in 2023 will enable a leap in productivity, including double work area capacity, up to 10,000 sqm due to systematic cutting, which also allows for customised mowing patterns.

In 2020, Husqvarna launched its first virtual boundary robotic mower. Husqvarna Automower® 550 EPOS may look the same, but the new version has three major upgrades to increase productivity. Firstly, the system is now able to cut systematically rather than randomly unlike the previous model, resulting in twice the capacity of the original, making it the perfect solution for sports turf that requires a lot of playing time.


Secondly, the mower is equipped with a five-blade cutting disc with enhanced high-speed steel as standard, leading to a cleaner cut and longer blade change intervals. The third improvement is an improved EPOS reference station coverage, simplifying installations in large areas such as golf courses.


“The upgraded version of Husqvarna Automower® 550 EPOS is designed for facility and sports turf management crews with high demands on esthetics, productivity and with minimum noise and direct CO2 exhaust emissions during use”, says Hannah Cooper, Professional Segment Manager at Husqvarna UK.


The systematic cutting is made possible by the EPOS technology providing a centimetre level position of the mower. Knowing the exact mower position at all times enables running in different patterns such as straight systematic lines. Through the app, it will also be possible to customise mowing patterns creating parallel, checkerboard or triangle shapes.


About EPOS technology

Husqvarna’s virtual boundary EPOS technology is a high-precision satellite navigation system that delivers an accuracy of 2-3 centimetres, giving the user a new level of flexibility and offering a robust and flexible installation in areas with an open sky.  The virtual boundaries also enable aerating and scarifying without breaking physical wires and the user can change boundaries and transport paths from their phone. With the Precise Area Management feature, several work areas can be defined with different timers and settings. It also makes it possible to create temporary stay-out zones.


Husqvarna Automower® 550 EPOS will be available in 2023 – reference station sold separately. For more information on Husqvarna and its latest innovations, visit
