Michael Schreiner (private user)

After seven ride-on mowers, the 54-year-old now owns his first ride-on flail mower, an AS 1040 YAK 4WD. "The YAK convinces me above all with its enormous area output. I can drive the YAK anywhere. Whether in the middle of five-meter-high blackberries or up slopes where you need a crampon on foot. The Yak drives at full speed as if nothing is wrong. And then everything is gone."
Because we often sit on our mowers for hours at a time, we really appreciate the comfort offered by the AS 980’s seat suspension... Our company requires professional work devices. The AS 980 Enduro has proven to be extremely robust and never failed us. Moreover, it offers excellent comfort when compared with other ride-on mowers.

Even my grandmother had an AS mower, which at the time was still red and white and had a front wheel with spokes that looked like a bicycle. And my parents had orchards and vineyards... which could only be mowed a scythe or an AS mower.

I can completely mow the wastewater treatment plant in about one day with the new AS 63 2T ES. It took me almost twice as long with a brush-cutter. The AS 63’s twin tyres make the device extremely safe on a slope.

Harald Josef Ernstberger - a true connoisseur of the entire AS-Motor product range - tested the innovation of the year in tough practical use: the professional ride-on mower AS 1040 Yak 4WD. His verdict is clear: "The new mower from AS is really a machine for professionals. Even under adverse conditions, you can work at high speed and save a lot of time. The cutting pattern is absolutely clean and one hundred percent convincing".
Time is a precious commodity which is why I'm the proud owner of an AS 940 XL.

Maintaining horse pastures is a pleasure with the AS 800 FreeRider, even close to fences! You can work very well on slopes thanks to its low centre of gravity.

With the AS 901 flail mower I mow the grass and vine prunings between rows at the same time. This means less work cutting and no need for herbicides.
– Martin Gehauf (Farmer and winemaker, Freyburg)
The machine’s low centre of gravity gives you a safe feeling, even on very uneven terrain. I am quite tall and still sit very comfortably with enough space – this never happens with ride-on mowers.
