Dear bigjosh,

I have done extensive research and found out that the Husqvarna Solar
Mower is actually already available on some European markets: In
Norway, Germany, Sweden, and Belgium the mower is offered by various
gardening equipment dealers. I did not find shops in other countries
of the world carrying it.
However, my research led also to the result that of those dealers,
only two would ship to the USA, both of them located in Germany.
Contacting them in English will, according to my experiences with
German shops, not a problem at all. Ordering from Europe is, alas, not
very convenient, and there will also be notable shipping costs. But it
offers you, at least, two oppotunities to order and get the mower now,
before its introduction in the US market.

Perfect! Exactly the info I was looking for!

I just tried ordering from Umwelt-, Forst- und Gartentechnik Ebert. If
that doesn't work out, I'll try Motorland (or "Engine Land" as Google
translates it). I'll post back with the ultimate outcome.

Hi Josh,

What a fascinating looking product!

I called my local dealer who was a bit in the dark but gave me the
number at Husqvarna USA. They say it is in testing in Europe, but not
yet on the market. Once on the market there (voltages and connectors
likely different than US) it will be released for testing here, first
in California. They will undergo 6-12 months of a test cycle, then be
available for general sale.

Two people I spoke two had two different ideas of pricing. One thought
$2,000, the other closer to $3,000.

Wish I had better news for you.

After about a month, I got a call from the import broker that my mover
had actually arived in the US! I had to sign some paper work, and pay
a $75 brokerae fee, but I did, in fact, end up getting the mower a few
weekes later.

Now I just have to wait until spring to see if it works. :)

Thanks again for the info, scriptor-ga.

Dear bigjosh,

I'm glad to hear everything went well and you finally received your
solar lawn mower.

Have a nice day,

Spring is here, so i finally was able to get the solar mower working
and it is *great*. I set up the perimiter as a giant square in the
middle of my yard and let to mower do its thing. The square is
*prefectly* trimmed and feels like a giant carpet. The only downside
with the mower is that it can not climb hills steeper than about 20o,
so I can't set it up to do my whole yard - but for flat areas it is a
great invention. I wish they would sell it properly in the US.
