Gwinnett Soccer Academy, in partnership with Gwinnett County, has become the first entity in Georgia to adopt autonomous mowing on its sports fields. The academy will use Husqvarna’s Ceora mower to maintain more than 14 fields at two facilities.

“Automated robotic mowing has allowed us to take key staff off mowers and focus them on other tasks in the fields, providing an excellent soccer experience for all,” Drew Prentice, executive director of Gwinnett Soccer Academy, said. “In the short time we have used the robotic mowers, we have noticed a significant decrease in weeds, pests such as ants and even geese, which negatively impact the playing surface.”

Husqvarna launched the Ceora robotic mower in 2022. It features a Razor 43M cutting deck with a three-cutting disc system made of hardened stainless steel, as well as active wheel brushes to keep the drive wheels clean of clippings and debris.

The company says Ceora charges from empty to full in 3-4 hours and automatically routes to a charging station when its battery runs low.
