AS 800 FreeRider

Ride-on mower with limited slip differential for more traction

The AS 799 Rider’s big brother, the AS 800 FreeRider is equipped with a Briggs & Stratton Series 3 Intek engine with gear-reduction blade drive and up to 13.0 hp. With an AS cross-blade system and closed mower deck, the AS 800 FreeRider cuts and mulches grass up to 80 cm high. The grass is then placed between the wheels and not run over, ensuring greater safety in wet conditions and on slopes. The cutting height can be adjusted to 4 levels between 35–85 mm. Hydrostatic transmission allows the precise adaptation of speed to match the terrain, reaching 8.0 km/h and 6.0 km/h in reverse while a limited slip differential can be switched on via a foot pedal. When in park, the mowing unit switches off automatically via a mechanical blade clutch.
The AS 800 FreeRider’s tubular frame ensures high stability; a bumper protects the axles and wheel suspension. A length-adjustable bucket seat provides a comfortable upright sitting position and ample legroom while a smooth steering system guarantees fatigue-free work.
Work rates up to 6,800 m² per hour are possible thanks to an 80 cm cutting height, powerful engine and hydrostatic transmission. A 15-litre tank means longer work periods without refueling. The AS 800 FreeRider is suited for both flat and uneven terrain and slight slopes.

Customer reviews

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.
– Peter Eisenmann (Owner of Horse Gear Innovations KG, Germany)
This machine convinced me already during the 1st mowing operation, so that I do not shed a tear for our former tractor with attached mulch mower. Efficient, manoeuvrable, powerful and a excellent mowing result characterise my new AS 800 FreeRider; and on top of that it takes up very little space in the tool shed when not in use.
In addition to my new AS 800 ride-on mower, we own an AS 28 2T ES for several years now, with which we are also very satisfied. My father swears to it. It is used on steep sections and on embankments/ditches. I bought the machine at Hagenlocher in Hbg-Gültstein - Hagelocher is always a competent and trustworthy dealer, also when it comes to service works.
My conclusion: "If there were such great, well thought-out and reliable products for all live situations as AS motorised equipment, the world would be simply perfect!
– Klaus Haarer (from Herrenberg, Germany)
Well, we had nothing to do with 1 metre high grass before we bought our AS-Motor machine. We made our experiences in our wilderness with thistles, bramble hedge, young trees with 8 cm diameter: we simply drove through...and the stuff was flat !!!! Far above your practical test. Yes, that is Swabian quality! We know what the machine can do and we won't give it away again, our little "Ferrari"AS 800 FreeRider, Best regards from the Dieterle family, Allgau region
– Heinz Erich Dieterle (Amtzell/ Pfärrich in Allgau region, Germany)
My latest acquisition from the AS-Motor family is the AS 800, which I call Kurt. It can easily handle 80 cm high grass and thanks to its compact dimensions it can get almost anywhere in between. The switchable differential lock gives me a lot of security and grip on slopes. That's a great relief. The next addition to my vehicle family from Bühlertann will be called Rudi. Kind regards Dietmar Kling.
– Dietmar Kling (green care service provider from Niefern near Pforzheim, Germany)
On the recommendation of AS-Motor I checked the AS 800 FreeRider at the dealer store Mähler in Gossenheim and then bought it there. Just right for my ranch in Lower Franconia. My previous lawn tractor used to clog and could not cope with high grass, but I’d like to leave the grass as flowering meadows. I particularly like the value of the workmanship: everything is made of sheet steel. That holds up better than the plastic mowers.
– Georg Lummel (owner of the company Lummel GmbH & Co. KG, metal facades manufacturer)
