Sherpa ReDesign and new models
The all-wheel drive ride-on mowers in a new design
The all-wheel drive models of the Sherpa family will appear in new splendor in the future. With a new paint finish, an additional front panel and the newly designed labels, the Sherpa’s will be even more attractive in the future. The re-design of the Sherpa family also offers some technical innovations.
The new ATV tires for the XL models provide even better performance when driving across slopes and improved hill climbing ability. All all-wheel-drive Sherpa models will in future come with the liquide tyre sealant, AS-Motor Plattfuss-Stop, as standard – downtime due to flat tires will no longer be an issue. The Sherpas’ new fuel tank offers more volume (17 liters), a larger tank opening and a level indicator. The new locking mechanism of the folding safety bar ensures easier handling and makes the bar less prone to damage. There is also improved elbowroom when operating the driving lever. In the future, the protective cloth between the engine and seat will no longer be elaborately riveted, but locked in place using robust magnets. Accessibility to the engine, for example when adjusting the valves, is significantly improved.
Additional models with new engine option
As part of the redesign, the Sherpa family will be expanded from five to eight models. In addition to the models with Briggs and Stratton engines, there will be four models with a Loncin engine. The AS 915 Sherpa will be available exclusively with a Loncin engine in the future.
The following models will offer a choice between a Briggs and Stratton and a Loncin engine: AS 920 Sherpa, AS 940 Sherpa and AS 940 Sherpa XL. With a displacement of 708 cc and a rated power of 21.2 hp, it represents an attractively priced alternative. The remote-controlled Sherpa RC will continue to be equipped with a Briggs and Stratton.
