Excellent: AS 940 Sherpa 4WD – German Design Award Winner 2023

At this year's GaLaBau trade fair, AS-Motor presented the Sherpa family in new splendour. The consistently sustainable product design of the powerful high grass mowers also convinced the top-class jury of the German Design Award. The AS-Motor team is delighted to received the "German Design Award Winner 2023" for the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD.

"Today, more than ever, outstanding design means providing answers to the challenges of our time," can be read on the website of the major design award. One challenge to which AS-Motor has dedicated itself is ecologically and sustainably oriented green care. The fact that this is also consistently implemented in product design convinced the jury - consisting of internationally active experts in industrial and product design. In the category Excellent Product Design - Utility Vehicles, they awarded the newly designed Sherpa the distinction "German Design Award Winner 2023". In the citation it says: "The AS Sherpa 4WD XL was developed specifically for mowing tall grass meadows, which its striking functional design expresses perfectly. A compact ride-on mower reduced to the essentials for sustainable and ecologically oriented green maintenance."

Consistently sustainable

"We are proud to receive this prestigious design award for our Sherpa family. The team from development, product management and testing has done an excellent job here," said Georg-Otto Fuchs, Vice President Product Management & Marketing EMEAA following the announcement. "The new look is not only more attractive, but also shows that we consistently think sustainably in product design as well. We have deliberately dispensed with any unnecessary plastic covers and other unnecessary parts. The focus is solely on function and performance. Almost all of the materials used can also be completely recycled and impress with their long and thus resource-saving service life."

The new Sherpa range with its well-known and proven features combined with an even more appealing look and some technical improvements will be available for the next mowing season.
