Description

The world’s first ride-on mower with remote control offers even more safety and convenience in difficult terrain

The world’s first ride-on mower with remote control, the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD RC can be operated comfortably both from the driver seat and via a professional remote control unit with a high range. Equipped with a professional Briggs & Stratton Series 8 engine and hydrostatic transmission, the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD RC is designed to perform on slopes.

It is recommended to operate the machine from the driver seat for high area performance and optimal operator comfort on flat terrain. Remote-controlled operation is recommended for increased operator safety on slopes and inclines up to 33 degrees. The operator is also shielded from exhaust, noise, vibration, dust, pollen, insects and scrub. The following functions of the machine can be operated by remote control: start and stop, to drive forward, backwards and stop, cutting height adjustment, blade clutch, differential lock, steering trim and reverse. When the machine is operated from the driver seat, the remote control functions as a dashboard. The control levers of the remote control are progressive: the more the control lever is pressed, the higher the speed or the steering angle. When the control levers are released, the parking brake automatically engages and the steering moves into the middle position. Only a short training phase is needed to control the machine safely and precisely.

Fatigue-free work in ride-on mode

With a highly stable tubular frame, the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD RC performs even under harsh conditions. Operators up to 2 meters tall can operate the machine comfortably thanks to a length-adjustable seat and seat spring package. A low centre of gravity, folding bar and branch deflectors are added safety features, while lashing points integrated in the frame enable secure transport.

Closed surfing mower deck

Like the other Sherpa models, the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD RC’s cross-blade system delivers impressive mulching results in grass and dense growth. Bearing-supported blades cut the grass while a mulching blade positioned above them shreds the cuttings, which are then deposited between the wheels for added safety on slopes and wet grass. The mower deck’s surfing suspension yields upwards to obstacles, protecting the blades and turf from damage. Cutting heights can be adjusted to 5 levels from 80–135 cm via the remote control, whether in ride-on mode or operating from a distance.

 

Expert opinion: “Mowing on slopes or roadsides involve risks. Vibration and exhaust are detrimental to health and given new alternatives, it may possibly no longer be an acceptable risk to allow public works employees to operate traditional mowers in these circumstances” (Hendrik Rößmann, technical instructor at DEULA Westfalen-Lippe GmbH, KommunalTechnik, Issue 1, Jan / Feb 2018)
