Husqvarna Professional Products of Charlotte, N.C., is recalling about 1,400 Husqvarna Automower 435X and 535 All-Wheel Drive Robotic Lawnmowers.

The lithium-ion battery in the lawnmower can overheat, posing a risk of fire.

The firm has received five reports of batteries overheating, including two reports of fires. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the Husqvarna-branded Automower 435X AWD and Automower 535 AWD robotic lawnmowers, both of which are powered by lithium-ion batteries. The robotic lawnmowers freely and automatically cut grass by detecting the signal of a perimeter cable. The mowers have a docking station for recharging.

The 435X model is gray with orange on the wheels, and the 535 model is orange and gray with white wheels. The Husqvarna logo is painted on the front of the lawnmowers, and the model number is located on the top.

The lawnmowers, manufactured in Sweden, were sold at Husqvarna- affiliated dealers nationwide and online at www.husqvarna.com from March 2020, through July 2021, for about $4,500.
