AS-Motor – high grass mowers for slopes and difficult terrain

AS-Motor engineers high grass and mulching mowers for professional operators and private customers alike. Our mowers are known for their exceptional quality and performance in extreme conditions, such as inclines reaching 35 degrees and in high grass and dense scrub.

Known around the world for our innovative technology, AS-Motor’s machines are 100% Made in Germany at our headquarters in Bühlertann.  We are particularly proud of our latest innovation: the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD RC – the world’s first ride-on mower with remote control – which enables the mowing of extreme slopes while guaranteeing operator safety.


Mulching mowers
A perfectly maintained lawn is possible more quickly than in the past. Mulching eliminates the need to stop and empty the collection bag as well as the cost and time-intensive process of cuttings disposal. Mulching also has environmental benefits, since the finely chopped grass returns to the lawn as natural fertiliser and protects against drying. The new generation of professional mulching mowers from AS-Motor provides these advantages with high performance and first-class cutting results.
Professional lawn mowers
Professional operators require tools that cut perfectly, collect perfectly and are easy to maneuver. These mowers should also have a long service life and rarely break down. AS-Motor’s range of professional lawn mowers perform on slopes and in grass up to 40 cm high, with spare parts available for many years and added safety features such as automatic braking.
Machines that mow grass and dense growth 60 – 150 cm high from the inventor of the Allmäher®. When equipped with a 2-stroke engine, the Allmäher performs where brush-cutters are typically used. The AS-Motor original since 1959.
Flail mowers
Flail mowers are the tool of choice for professionals who often mow large areas in unknown terrain. The flail mower’s primary advantage is that in the event of unseen foreign objects, the flails simply give way. Flail mowers are thus universal tools suitable for high or low grass, scrub and dense growth. Perfect cutting results and a high work rate make AS-Motor’s flail mowers the first choice for professional operators.
Ride-on mowers
Integrating the best of comfortable lawn tractor and high-performance Allmäher®, AS-Motor’s ride-on mowers have a low centre of gravity, off-road mobility and incredible cutting force. Available with all-wheel drive, a mulch kit and even remote-control technology, AS-Motor’s ride-on Allmähers are in a class by themselves.
Remote-controlled mowers
Building off recent advances in remote-control technology, AS-Motor currently offers high grass mowers with increased functionality and expanded application areas. These RC devices open up new possibilities for the user and service provider.
Disc mowers
AS-Motor’s modern alternative for forage production guarantees less wear, less maintenance and above all less vibration. The disc mowers cleanly cut high grass and deposit it in swaths which can be simply collected and fed to livestock. AS-Motor’s disc mowers provide simplicity and convenience.
Weed removers
Kerbstones, car parks and walkways must be freed of weeds and wild growth several times a year, a process that requires time, money and the use of dangerous herbicides. AS-Motor’s mechanical weed removal technology provides a chemical-free solution that not only saves time and money, but protects the Environment.
