Preview tour around UK

Husqvarna have completed a month-long tour of the UK, giving customers and dealers an exclusive look at its new solution for commercial turf management, Ceora.

During the last few weeks over 265 people across the industry, ranging from Husqvarna dealers to customers from key market segments including sports, facilities management, schools, and golf, attended local events, hosted by the manufacturer's team, to get a first look at the robot in action.

Officially announced to the market in the summer, Husqvarna says Ceora has generated a buzz of excitement within commercial turf care, an industry which is currently dominated by heavy, conventional diesel mowers that require manual operation.

With the tour, the company visited six different regions across the UK, including London, North West, South West, Midlands, Northern Ireland and Scotland and in doing so received interest from a range of commercial customers and dealers.

Hannah Cooper, Husqvarna’s professional segment manager, spearheaded the tour and says she was overwhelmed by the response they received.

“It was great to see so many people come to see what Ceora can do," explained Hannah. "Since we announced the product earlier this year, we’ve received amazing feedback, but this was an opportunity for dealers and customers to see it in action for the first time. The interest we received throughout the tour is testament to how hard the Husqvarna team has worked to create a product that is so revolutionary and offers such great opportunity.”

Once installed, Husqvarna says the robot can independently mow an area of up to 75,000m² both during the day and at night, alllowing staff to focus on more value-adding tasks that need doing during the day.

According to the manufacturer the large-scale robotic solution, which is due to be available for purchase in the UK during Spring 2022, can also users to lower their carbon footprint. The robot's low electric consumption means no direct emissions while in use.
