AS-Motor offers solutions for hunting grounds management and forestry
Robust design is an advantage when caring for young forest areas, keeping forest paths clear and maintaining densely forested hunting grounds.
Sustainable forest management relies on the correct balance between economy and ecology. Flail mowers can be used effectively for maintaining forest margins or removing saplings up to 20 mm thick.
The daily work of hunting grounds management includes keeping stalking paths and clearings maintained for easier game spotting. Also, hunters often fence off fields to reduce the damage done by game. These fences must be mowed at regular intervals to preserve electrical conductivity and AS-Motor’s walk-behind Allmähers provide the precision handling needed for this purpose. When game damage cannot be avoided, e.g. damage caused by wild boars on grassland, AS-Motor’s flail mowers can level out the terrain.
Christmas tree plantations
The majority of the approximately 25 million Christmas trees sold annually are cultivated on professional plantations. If the grass between lanes grows too high, the Christmas trees’ lower branches lack access to light and start to lose their needles. For this special application, AS-Motor offers walk-behind mowers with branch deflectors that push branches upward while mowing. Flail mowers and ride-on Sherpa mowers are also ideally suited for use on Christmas tree plantations:
Time is a precious commodity which is why I'm the proud owner of an AS 940 XL.
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.
During the mowing season, professional operators often run their machines 5 days per week, 8 hours per day. AS-Motor’s machines are unbeatable in terms of quality, durability and professional work results. Additional advantages include low weight, lashing points and compact transport dimensions.
High meadow grass
Because mowing of meadow orchards and roadside greenery can occur only once or twice per year, grass, perennials and shrubbery can grow up to 100 cm high. AS-Motor’s walk-behind Allmähers and ride-on Sherpas deliver high performance and outstanding mulching results in these conditions.
Dense growth and forest
Young trees must be protected from invasive plants such as brambles and clematis in order to flourish. Thus young forests and Christmas tree plantations must be mowed on a regular basis. AS-Motor’s flail mowers effectively handle growth up to 20 mm thick.
Animal burrows, anthills, mole hills and water channels cause uneven terrain. Several AS-Motor machines have high ground clearance, all-wheel drive and limited slip differential, along with appropriately studded field tyres, for uneven terrain.
AS-Motor engineers machines with high ground clearance, steep ramp angles, low overall weight, optimal weight distribution and a low centre of gravity to perform on slopes.
All-wheel drive not only ensures performance on inclines over 30 degrees, but also a high level of safety for travel downhill. All-wheel drive delivers propulsion in wet conditions and on uneven terrain – even if the wheels of one axle no longer have traction.
Remote controlled devices make the mowing of extreme slopes possible. This technology also allows the operator to mow at a safe distance from dust, wasps, ticks and other hazards.
