Ride-on Allmäher AS 915 Sherpa 2WD: Take your place in the Sherpa class
Within a model update the AS 915 Enduro will become the AS 915 Sherpa 2WD – and this means: Welcome to the Sherpa class. Thanks to the surfing mulch-mower deck, cross-blade system and stable perimeter tube frame grass and bushes on slopes can also be mowed with the smallest model of the Sherpa series from AS-Motor GmbH.
At first glance you notice the galvanised bumper, with which starting in spring 2019 all AS-Motor ride-on mowers will be equipped. In addition to the visual recognition value, the stable bumper on the mower front also protects against grass and brushes that always hit the device when mowing. As ride-on mower the AS 915 Sherpa 2WD combines the comfort and the work rate of a lawn tractor with the cutting force and all-terrain capability of the well-known ride-on mowers from AS-Motor. With a speed of up to 10.5 km/h forward and up to 8.2 km/h in reverse the ride-on mower achieves a work rate of approx. 9,450 square metres per hour.
Fine mulch thanks to the cross-blade system
A robust 4-stroke engine from Briggs & Stratton with oil and fuel pump ensures the force necessary to also mow grass and brushes on slopes. With a displacement of 656 cubic centimetres the 2-cylinder engine generates a maximum power of 22 hp; the 15-litre tank ensures an impressive range. The cross blade has movable mounted and interchangeable blades, it enables mowing and mulching of meadows to a height of 120 centimetres. The ejection between the rear wheels minimises the risk of losing traction on freshly cut, finely chopped green cuttings. Moreover, the AS 915 Sherpa 2WD is equipped with on-demand differential lock, which increases traction and safety for the operator, particularly on a slope. The cutting width of 90 centimetres allows rapid progress; the cutting height can be adjusted in 5 levels from 50 to 105 millimetres. The mower deck "surfs" as protection against damage; thus it can move upward if there is unevenness or if there are obstructions or rubbish in the grass. In addition, the smallest Sherpa is characterised by its narrow turning radius of just 65 centimetres, which allows manoeuvrable mowing around trees, bushes or obstacles.
Ergonomic details in series
The AS 915 Sherpa 2WD is equipped with a stable perimeter tube frame and a one-hand drive lever with integrated parking brake. This enables the user to conveniently control the speed with one hand: Thanks to the 2-wheel hydrostatic transmission, the speed can be variably increased or reduced with the lever; in the middle position the parking brake is activated automatically. The ride-on mower is factory-equipped with the AS-Motor bucket seat, which in its rear-most position allows ergonomically pleasant work for users even as tall as 1.90 metres. The air filter and oil dipstick can be reached without opening the engine bonnet.
Accessories for lawn care and winter service
Optionally a lawn mulch kit is available for the AS 915 Sherpa 2WD, which generates a clean, fine mowing result at a maximum grass height of 40 centimetres. Moreover in snow the ride-on mower can be equipped with snow blade and snow chains and thus it can also be used for winter service. Along with the new name the mower has inherited many advantages from the Sherpa series, from which professionals as well as private users benefit.
