Peter Martini (owner Martini Landschaftsbau und Pflege from Kehrig, Germany)

We use two AS 940 Sherpa for the green space maintenance of the open-air photovoltaic systems. Twice a year, we currently mulch around 200 hectares in this business area. The primary goal is to keep the solar modules free of shade. We mow under the solar tables, which means there is only about 90 centimetres of space between the turf and the tables in some places. Of course, the compact design and the low centre of gravity are very beneficial. In addition, the Sherpas with their all-wheel drive are very suitable for off-road use. Even if there is brushwood or high grass to be mulched, that is no problem, the Sherpas will stop nothing. With the AS mowers, we can get through anywhere.
In four months of use and with over 150 working hours on very difficult and uneven terrain with large slopes, the AS 1040 YAK 4WD has proven to be excellent. As far as I am concerned, weeds, grass and bushes are not a problem when YAK 1040 show up.

AS 1040 YAK 4WD is an efficient machine for mowing along roadways. Stable driving when mowing steep slopes. Easy intuitive operation.

AS 920 Sherpa 2WD: this machine has become our regular helper for landscaping in our "bird paradise". It has met our high expectations at bird conservation organisation SOS Birdlife; it is easy to control and handle. It can also handle more demanding terrain and longer working hours, and it doesn't mind getting its wheels dirty at all!
– Zuzana Mace Zemáneková (Project Manager at SOS Birdlife Slovensko, Slovakia)
Use in orchard meadows is also an area where the AS mower can show off its advantages such as manoeuvrability and low overall height. When a tractor with a mulcher can no longer be used due to low branches, the Sherpa 940 4WD RC can easily drive under low-hanging branches without damaging or tearing off branches. Should the situation require it, it is very easy to switch the AS Sherpa 4WD RC to radio operation and carry out dangerous or dusty mowing runs with maximum safety for the equipment operator. Just fold down the safety bar, switch to RC operation and off you go.

The AS 940 Sherpa 4WD XL is an easy-to-use machine. In our company we have replaced several other machines that could not maintain tough terrain. This machine has reduced the mowing time. We couldn't manage to clean the terrain with tractors, we did it with brushcutters. Then the Sherpa came and gave us great results, and we are very happy with the performance we are achieving.
– Iva Mladenović (Sport Center Pirot, Serbia)
For me as a service provider, the AS Sherpa 940 4WD RC is the ideal machine to be able to flexibly and economically carry out a wide range of mowing work for my customers. On the one hand, it is easy to mow lawns that require a well-maintained mowing pattern, and on the other hand, tall grass and undergrowth such as blackberries can be mulched quickly and effectively. We use the mower 50% in ride-on mode and 50% in RC mode. In RC mode, it pleases with its precise handling and in narrow areas with its sensitive response to the control commands via the professional radio control.
– Günther Wünsch (Owner Wünsch Forestry Services, Germany)
AS 1040 YAK 4WD has robust cutting equipment and is more stable than rotary mowers, which enables safe work. This is particularly important for our company due to the specificity of the funnel-shaped water filter tanks.
– Dejan Mladenović (agricultural machine operator, public water utility JKP Naissus, Serbia)
Sherpa is absolutely superior to ordinary ride-on mowers due to its low centre of gravity and excellent traction. The AS Sherpa 940 4WD RC closes the gap between an ordinary ride-on mower with four-wheel drive and a caterpillar mower, as it manages slopes that are no longer passable with a ride-on mower, but it also does not tear up the turf on wet green areas when manoeuvring and turning. This is a big advantage in the municipal sector, where we use the Sherpa to mow slopes in towns and on sports fields that should not look like a farmland after mowing.
– Günther Wünsch (Owner Wünsch Forestry Services, Germany)
The AS 940 Sherpa 4WD XL replaces a lot of manpower with brush cutters. It mows flawlessly where all other mowers we used would stop: On all extreme tall grass areas and steep slopes that used to be maintained with manpower and brush cutters, which took a lot of time. It has proven to be a very reliable, easy-to-use machine that always delivers excellent results.
