AS-Motor offers solutions for municipal maintenance
Municipal operators trust AS-Motor’s professional technology when caring for public green areas.
Municipal maintenance workers are responsible for a broad spectrum of tasks such as maintaining roads, playgrounds and parks as well as street cleaning, winter service, and tree care. In the summer months, municipal green areas and leisure facilities including sports fields and amateur football fields become a priority. AS-Motor offers professional technology for many of these applications, guaranteeing excellent work results while prioritizing operator health and safety standards.
AS-Motor applications for municipal maintenance:
Parks play an important role as recreational spaces and “green lungs” for surrounding neighborhoods. AS-Motor’s mulching mowers and professional lawn mowers are excellent tools for the care and preservation of these green areas.
AS-Motor is a trailblazer in the realm of mechanical weed removal. The AS 30 and AS 50 offer weed removal solutions for large car parks and uneven cobblestone surfaces without the use of chemicals.
Roadside greenery improves drivers’ visual guidance as well as road safety. AS-Motor Allmähers provide the advantage of high work rates and outstanding mulching results in maintaining city and community roads, especially when high grass is involved. AS-Motor’s walk-behind 2-stroke mowers are excellent solutions for embankments and steep slopes.
Playgrounds and leisure facilities
AS-Motor’s professional lawn mowers and mulching mowers are the best solution for playgrounds with angled green areas, bushes and trees. The devices’ rotated engine ensures minimal pressure on the grass and a polished cutting result. The operator decides whether the cuttings are then collected or mulched to serve as natural fertiliser.
The new AS 30 WeedHex 160 was made available to us for a product test, and the results were convincing... The device is very easy to operate. The guide bar is adjustable to 3 positions, providing optimal adaptation. An emergency switch ensures safety.
The AS 531 performs incredible work. Even in wet conditions the large collection bag is completely filled, and slopes and hills are no problem for the 2-stroke engine.
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.
Ornamental lawns in both private gardens and public facilities can be maintained with either mulching or collecting mowers. When mulching, the finely-shredded cuttings remain on the surface as natural fertiliser, while collection bags help the operator transport cuttings to a disposal point. Lawns are usually mowed once per week to a cutting height of 40–50 mm, from a maximum height of 15 cm.
A natural environment for bees, flower meadows make an important contribution to biodiversity and preserving our ecosystem. Flower meadows can quickly grow 40 cm high before blossoming and should be mowed 3–4 times per year. Our professional lawn mowers, mulching mowers with side discharge as well as Allmähers and ride-on mowers help care for flower meadows.
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.
Mulching is a process by which grass cuttings are shredded several times into a fine mulch, which then remains on the surface as natural fertiliser. Special mulching blades with a double cutting plane and a circular mulching unit are used on ornamental lawns, while cross-blade systems or flail mowers are primarily used in high grass.
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.
Interlocking paving stones
The AS 50’s high work rate delivers efficient weed removal on large and uneven surfaces such as a car parks, commercial areas and paths. A collection bag eliminates the need for sweeping and surface cleaning.
Cobblestones and uneven paved areas can be treated for weeds, without the use of chemicals, using mechanical methods. The agile AS 30 is designed for work close to edges, water inlet channels, manholes and on traffic islands with posts and signs.
