AS 53 2T ES 4WD
2-stroke mower with all-wheel drive for slopes
The AS 53 2T ES 4WD is equipped with the world’s only 2-stroke engine that meets the requirements stipulated by the EU Emissions Directive 97/68/EC. The AS 2-stroke engine maintains engine lubrication regardless of position, enabling work on inclines of up to 45 degrees without the risk of engine damage. In addition, the AS 2-stroke engine is factory-equipped with an EasyStart function; the CDI digital ignition system cuts the rpms required to start in half. The 2-stroke engine’s high torque provides full power in high, wet grass while a third crankshaft bearing, safety blade carrier and friction discs on the wing blade protect the engine in the event of unseen obstacles.
All-wheel drive delivers propulsion even in extreme conditions such as slopes and uneven, hilly terrain.
The AS 53 2T ES 4WD has excellent grip thanks to large, aggressive tread drive wheels. Drive speed can be conveniently adjusted to suit the conditions using the variator. Mechanical all-wheel drive slows the mower autonomously when moving downhill.
Cutting heights can be adjusted from 30–100 mm via six levels on each axle. Work rates reaching 2,500 m² per hour are possible due to a powerful 2-stroke engine with up to 6.0 hp and a 53 cm cutting width. The AS 53 2T ES 4WD easily cuts grass up to 40 cm high.
The world's only AS 2-stroke engine with EasyStart has position-independent lubrication, ensuring safe operation even on steep slopes.
With all-wheel drive, rear-wheel brake and reverse gear ideal for ditches, hills, embankments or slopes. In addition, the all-wheel drive ensures a constant downhill speed and increased safety on steep slopes.
Third crankshaft bearing and friction discs on the blade ensure optimal engine protection.
The variable speed adjustment allows optimal performance in all work conditions.

They still exist: garden tools with durability from the past paired with the technology of today. More than 20 years ago, my father had bought a second-hand AS 53 2T lawn mower for the regular mowing of an orchard of about 2,000 m², which still performs its services reliably today; before that, the mower had already been in use for more than 10 years at the road administration. In parallel, we had two others AS 53 2Ts that were older and that we could still sell for good money. If you buy an AS mower new and use it privately, it will probably last a lifetime. Basically, of course, as with all machines, you have to look after them and handle them sensibly.
With 35 year old mowers from AS, we still have fun mowing. That is Swabian quality. We own several "Gütle" (garden plots), one of which is on a steep slope. Our AS 53 B1/R all-wheel drive still does a great job! We also have an AS 45 B1, which is just as old and still in use. Our oldest AS machine still in working order is an AS 21 from 1968, found in grandpa's barn.
We have been using the AS 53 Allrad for our ornamental lawns on slopes up to 45° for more than 15 years. For this extreme application, it is the only machine on the market that meets our requirements for quality and performance. The robustness of the machines has convinced us for a long time. In the meantime, we have a fleet of 6 AS machines that provide us with loyal service at all times.
Performance on rough terrain, perfect cutting results and high efficiency are advantages AS-Motor machines provide to professional service providers.

AS-Motor’s professional technology offers solutions for the diverse tasks of gardening and landscaping, from outdoor facilities to private gardens, public parks and residential lawns.
Caring for green areas in the civic environment involves a variety of tasks. From parks to roadside management, AS-Motor provides the correct tools to ensure both professional results and operator safety.
Meadow orchards characterize the landscape of diverse regions and provide valuable ecosystems for insect and bird life. Maintaining these areas often involves mowing around trees, on slopes and in rough terrain.
When the goal is perfecting an ornamental lawn, obtaining forage for small animals or tending to the gardens and orchards of weekend homes, AS-Motor offers several professional mowing tools that will provide private users with excellent results for many years to come.
Leisure facilities must be visually appealing and expertly maintained. Whether parks or campsites, these areas are frequently used and thus require careful maintenance.
Athletic facilities and golf courses
Management of edge areas, embankments and lawns of athletic facilities are as important as the greens themselves.
