CEORA™ covers more turf than ever

At Husqvarna, we recognise the need to provide a wide variety of flexible solutions for today’s turf care professionals. And when it comes to larger spaces, we saw an opportunity to develop something new. Something that could cover a far wider area than our existing range, yet still deliver the cutting results you expect from a Husqvarna robotic solution. Enter Husqvarna CEORA™. It allows for a huge scale up of operations to meet increasing demands on time, turf quality and sustainability.

Systematic mowing delivers a winning result

Cutting systematically in parallel tracks means CEORA™ is equally efficient whether managing football pitches or any other large green space. You can also define work areas and set a schedule where various times and different grass heights between 20mm and 70mm 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.

Flexible and hassle-free zone management

CEORA™ is a state-of-the-art autonomous mowing solution guided by Husqvarna EPOS technology. Precise satellite navigation with virtual boundaries 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.

Large-scale precision lawn care. Now at your fingertips.

Using mobile technology to stay connected to operations is second nature these days. And with CEORA™ you have complete control directly from your smart phone. Steering and defining cutting areas or changing the turf care schedule is fast and simple. Husqvarna Fleet Services™ allows surveillance and map localisation for full control and theft protection.

Bring on the future

CEORA™ is a robotic mower first and foremost. Yet that’s just where the story begins. Our vision is to accommodate long-term sustainable turf care. Hence we designed an exchangeable front unit that could make it possible to fit accessories such as, for example, a fairway deck or a line painter in future.

Covering more ground for less

When cutting every day, CEORA™ delivers the best quality turf on areas up to 25,000m². The frequency of cutting lessens as the area gets larger. Going further on larger areas means more cost-efficient mowing operations and a significant sustainable advantage for all kinds of green space professionals.

CEORA™ – How it works

Work areas

 

Work areas are defined using virtual boundaries, this eliminates the hassle of physical wires enabling easy aerating and turf repair

EPOS™ reference station

EPOS™ reference station handles signals between CEORA™ and the satellite system enabling high precision satellite positioning of the product

Transport paths

Defined transport paths allow CEORA™ to transfer efficiently between different work areas

Charging station

CEORA™ autonomously looks for the charging station to recharge when needed

Stay-out-zone

Setting temporary or permanent stay-out zones ensures flexible zone management by instructing CEORA™ to avoid cutting certain areas

Cutting frequency (times/week)

To achieve optimum grass length, use the app to schedule cutting frequency which can differ based on the area of grass

CEORA™ mower

Determine the location and always have full control of CEORA™ from any place using the app

Maintenance point

When it’s time to maintain and service your machine, you can use the app and CEORA™ will move automatically towards the pre-defined maintenance point.

CEORA™ – Managing large green spaces

The modern sports facility is the ideal arena for CEORA™ to show off its versatile skills. Put to work on an area around 25,000m² per day, it can manage several football pitches in a cost-efficient and professional way. Everyday care results in a lush, dense lawn that is perfect for sports and golf, with heavily-used grass areas being cut sensitively. CEORA™ is easy for all ground staff to operate remotely and maintain while focusing on other tasks to further improve turf quality. The end result is a sustainable win-win for the whole club.
CEORA™ can cut day and night on larger turf areas, working quietly in defined areas without getting in the way of players. Premium quality is achieved on semi-rough and sports areas, with the use of active wheel brushes that spread grass clippings effectively, creating a smooth result without clumps. To achieve optimum grass length on larger areas, CEORA™ can be scheduled to cut three times a week on an area of around 50,000m². Also, with future software updates, it is a viable long-term asset to any sports or golf club.
Its huge area capacity and sustainable capabilities mean CEORA™ represents the ideal investment for facilities and municipalities looking to meet targets on emissions and noise levels. Furthermore, replacing manual mowing with a robotic solution that can cover areas up to 75,000m² twice a week presents the opportunity to make major savings on labour and equipment costs. New levels of flexibility and performance are also possible, with turf care aided by virtual boundaries.
Modular system with two drive units

CEORA™ - The System

The new CEORA™ robotic mower is a modular system where you select the drive unit combination that suits your operations best. An innovative split design features a drive unit and a front unit. The 546 drive unit delivers the highest cutting performance and largest total capacity, around 50,000m² in a two-day period. The 544 drive unit has a formidable cutting capacity of around 40,000m² in a two-day period.

CEORA™ razor 43M

CEORA™ has a cutting deck that features fifteen high-speed steel blades, mounted on three cutting discs. Easy maintenance and handling are made possible by an ergonomic cutting deck service position. This can be tilted for easy access to exchange cutting discs.

Charging station CS4

A battery charging station is required to power CEORA™. The charging station comes equipped with a transformer.

Active wheel brushes

One of several practical accessories available for CEORA™ is a set of active wheel brushes. These work constantly to reduce grass from collecting on the wheels and also contribute to creating optimal turf, without any grass clumps.

EPOS reference station

A reference station for use with Husqvarna EPOS (Exact Positioning Operating System) is required. This handles signals between the product and the satellite system. The EPOS reference station is compatible with other Husqvarna EPOS robotic mowers.

The story behind CEORA™

Pär Forsman, Product Manager of CEORA™ is delighted about how EPOS technology can create virtual boundaries, delivering faster and more efficient systematic cutting than ever before. The result will free up much more time for turf care managers in future.
