Husqvarna is launching a new robotic solution for commercial turf care management. The new Husqvarna CEORA platform is an autonomous turf care solution for grass areas of up to 50,000 m2 (12.4 acres). The high performing, low noise and zero emission* Husqvarna CEORA mows autonomously and systematically within virtual boundaries.
The Husqvarna CEORA enables public and commercial landowners, sports field managers and golf course owners to automate lawnmowing while staff can be redeployed to focus on more value adding tasks. "This is an industry game changer marking the start of a new era in commercial turf care management," says Valentin Dahlhaus, Vice President at Husqvarna.
Launching Husqvarna CEORA
Husqvarna is the pioneer of robotic turf care and has since 1995 changed the way how millions of homeowners mow their lawns with the iconic Husqvarna Automower robotic mower. Husqvarna CEORA is a robotic mower designed specifically for demanding professional applications delivering a first class result in a cost efficient and safe way with low noise and zero emissions. Husqvarna CEORA operates fully independent within a defined area. The systematic mowing technology offers cuts in parallel paths. One machine can cover areas up to 50,000 m2.
Utilizing the leading-edge Husqvarna EPOS technology, a high-precision satellite navigation system that delivers an accuracy of 2-3 cm, the new Husqvarna CEORA gives the user a new level of flexibility and performance. The EPOS technology allows operation without physical wires enabling quick digital redefinitions of the work area to accommodate industry leading flexible use of the lawn and aerating and scarifying without risking to damage wires.
A new era of turf care
During recent years, Husqvarna has introduced several digital solutions and robotic mowers that move the commercial turf care industry forward with, for example, Husqvarna Fleet Services, Automower Club solution, Husqvarna Automower 550 EPOS and Husqvarna Automower 535 AWD. The new Husqvarna CEORA is Husqvarna's first step addressing fast, large-scale systematic mowing but it is a future proof, scalable platform. In the future, it can be further tailored to specific needs, by adding accessories like, for example, lawn striper, fairway deck or line painter and can be paired with other robotic mowers allowing the operator instant and continuous digital monitoring and control of multiple units. This is simply a holistic solution for green space professionals who want to systematize mowing to deliver exceptional turf quality while freeing up time for other tasks. More details about the new Husqvarna CEORA will be presented during summer 2021 and mowers will start shipping to customers from early 2022.
Valentin Dahlhaus, Vice President, Husqvarna comments, "We are transforming the turf care with this innovative, high performance and reliable turf care solution. The entire 55-acre Great Lawn in Central Park can be managed by five Husqvarna CEORA, working 24/7. Everything is digitally monitored and controlled at your fingertips."
