AS-Motor ride-on mowers

AS-Motor ride-on mowers – four wheel drive for rough terrain

AS-Motor’s ride-on Sherpa mowers deliver impressive power and cutting results in high grass and on slopes and challenging terrain.  Essential design features include a stable blade system, drive gear ratios, a low center of gravity and drive and cooling systems which ensure endurance and performance.

The permanent all-wheel drive and added ground clearance of the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD XL make it the preferred tool of professional landscapers, municipal operators and and service providers on steep slopes and difficult terrain, while the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD RC has the added advantage of remote-control technology, for even more safety and comfort.

Innovation builds on experience – the remote-controlled AS 940 Sherpa RC

AS-Motor’s 2016 introduction of the Sherpa RC, the world’s first remote-controlled ride-on mower, was a milestone in the industry.  The Sherpa RC made it possible to safely mow uncomfortable, difficult or steep terrain from a safe distance for the first time.  Today the Sherpa RC is the professional tool of choice for municipal operators, professional landscapers and greenscare experts across Europe and beyond.
