Husqvarna 315 In-Depth Review
The Husqvarna corporation has over 20 years of development in the lawn mower industry, proving it’s credibility. You can expect only the utmost piece of tech, from one of the industry leaders. Their robotic lawn mower’s have undergone intensive testing as well as numerous refinements to make them one of the best units.
The most important feature that every company must consider is safety. Without proper safety measures, products can be harmful to humans as well as the environment. Luckily, the Husqvarna comes equipped with safety features that make it perfectly harmless. It has tilt and lift sensors that instantly stop the blade rotors if the unit is lifted or comes in contact with anything. There is also a Pin lock built into the program to ensure that no one else can access the bot’s schedule besides the owner.
According to the manufacturer’s patented free movement pattern method, the unit is able to cut the lawn perfectly with a patterned carpet-like appeal. Dual blade technology allows the razor-sharp rotors to cut the grass from all angles, leaving a very gentle yet sharp look.
With the built in weather time, you’re able to adjust the working time of the unit based on your lawn’s growing rate. In essence, this entails the mower to work during periods of strong grass growths and rest during dry seasons. By programming this weather timer correctly you’re able to increase the efficiency of your cuts as well as decrease wear and tear on the bot.
When the battery starts to get low, the unit will automatically go back to its original charging base. This means that the unit is completely autonomous and hands free. It will run based on your schedule and charge when it needs to. You’ll never have to put a hand on the bot to make it work.
Installation is very simple and there is a wide array of tutorials available on youtube to guide you through the process. The installation manual comes with the package and is available to you online. Below we have provided you with a demonstration.
This bot generates almost no noise, 58 dB. We even test ran this unit during midnight and could hardly hear a thing. It would be surprising if anyone ever complained about the noise, because it’s about as quiet as it gets.
If you’re worried about rain or harsh weather damaging your unit, then you’re in for a surprise. The automower 315 comes 100% insulated to protect it from rain and debris. It entails that your unit will be completely waterproof and can run during rainy seasons. However, if it gets too wet the rain sensors will activate forcing the unit to return back to the base charging station until your lawn dries out.
What’s cool about this robotic mower is that it comes in with a smartphone application that allows the user to control the unit remotely. You can set the schedule, time, as well as manually control your mower from a distance. Using this app, we learned that we could make the bot work off schedule as well as switch zones when needed without having to manually reprogram the bot. An amazing time saver!
We tested this mower’s capability for 2months and can vouch for its productivity as well as efficiency. Thanks to its four wheel design, two large back wheels and two small front wheels, it allows the unit to get great traction even while tackling steep hills and bumps along the lawn. Although it takes longer than an average push mower or riding mower to mow the lawn, it does it all hands free. Thanks to the unit’s tiny frame, it’s able to maneuver through tight places and reach areas that most lawn mower’s can’t get too.

Pros Vs Cons
- Automatic scheduling
- Smartphone app for full control
- Extremely quiet
- Can go up slopes (40%)
- Easy to setup
- Full autonomous, does not require supervision
- Setting up perimeter wire can take time depending on lawn size
- Can’t go up or down ledges
- Cost vs. Time
Overall a very well rounded robotic lawn mower. The Husqvarna 315 offers a very comparable value alongside the Robomow RS630. It has all the features that the Robomow offers as well as better maneuverability and faster setup. In terms of cost it’s at the mid range level. However, over time this robot will pay for itself in no time. We definitely recommend you to check out amazon if you are looking to purchase one, they offer the best prices as well as the fastest shipping times.
