      Husqavana seem to be top end machines -- not cheap and depending on the size of garden installation of the wires can be £500 -- from what ive seen of one that a friend has they are extremely slow and not really that great -- but thats only been installed a few months

    Hi Adam, I have two customers with large and fairly complicated lawns, they both have big Husky robotic mowers installed last season. Personally I think their lawns look really good and definitely better than when they were doing it with ride ones. The down side (and I think it's quite significant when you mention raised borders) is that they don't cut up to the edge by a long way so there is lots of strimming to do and that, obviously, has an effect on the overall look of the lawn. I know that the Worx mowers have offset blades to reduce this but don't know how effective it is. I think other manufacturers are also off setting blades and trying other things to get closer to the edge so this will improve over time. 

    If your customer is unsure our local Husky dealer (Earnest Doe) installed a demonstrator at one of these customers for about 3 weeks before he decided to go ahead so maybe that would be an option.
