High-grass, ride-on mower with permanent all-wheel drive and more ground clearance
The AS 940 Sherpa 4WD XL enables comfortable and safe mowing on slopes thanks to its Briggs & Stratton 2-cylinder engine with 724 ccm, 27 hp, and oil and fuel pump. Its permanent all-wheel drive, XL tyres with field stud tread, low centre of gravity and low total weight of only 298 kg provide stability on slopes. Hydrostatic transmission allows the precise adaptation of speed to match the terrain, reaching 6.7 km/h and 6.5 km/h in reverse. Just one lever controls the drive, brake and parking functions for easy operation, while limited slip differential can be activated for excellent propulsion and traction in extreme situations. A brake pedal returns the drive lever to neutral and automatically engages the parking brake.
The AS 940 Sherpa 4WD XL’s surfing mower deck is equipped with AS cross-blade technology in which bearing-supported blades cut the grass, while a mulching blade positioned above them shreds the cuttings. The mulched grass is then deposited between the wheels for added safety on slopes and wet grass, while the mower deck’s surfing suspension yields upwards to obstacles, protecting the blades and turf from damage. With a 90 cm cutting width, the AS Sherpa 940 4WD XL achieves work rates reaching 5,500 m² per hour. Cutting heights can be adjusted to 5 levels from 80–135 cm and an optional mulch kit is available for even finer mulching results.
Maximum comfort for long work days
The AS 940 Sherpa 4WD XL performs even under harsh conditions thanks to its highly stable tubular frame. A length-adjustable seat and seat spring package mean operators up to 2 meters tall can operate the machine comfortably while a low centre of gravity, folding bar and branch deflectors are added safety features. Integrated lashing points enable secure transport.
Designed for continuous operation
Two separate ventilation circuits for the engine and hydrostatic transmission prevent overheating: the engine takes in air from above and discharges it to the side, while the hydrostatic transmission takes air from the rear and discharges it downward. This system ensures a long service life.
All-wheel drive (AS 940)
Permanent all-wheel drive ensures better traction uphill and stronger, safer braking downhill.
Surfing mulch-mower deck
Closed mower deck with AS cross-blade system. The main blade cuts, the cross-blade chops the cuttings. The surfing mower deck gives way upward on uneven terrain to protect against damage.
Ergonomic sitting position provides excellent driving comfort
Length-adjustable driver seat, innovative seat suspension and ergonomic sitting position provide comfort for tall operators during long work periods.
Stable tube frame
High stability and torsional rigidity with heavy load.
Optimal all-terrain mobility
Field stud tyres, switchable limited slip differential and an engine suitable for slopes ensure powerful traction on difficult terrain.
Variable hydrostatic transmission (ride-on mower)
Easy adaptation of the speed to every terrain with integrated, mechanical parking brake in the drive lever.
Stable, folding bar
Greater operator safety in the machine’s limit area.
AS MULCHING MOWER DECK
Closed, surfing mower deck with cross-blade system and bearing-supported blades that yield to obstacles.
SEPARATE AIR COOLING SUPPLY
Separate engine air cooling and hydrostatic transmission optimize performance.
SWITCHABLE LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL
Comfortable activation of the limited slip differential via foot pedal for excellent propulsion and traction.
XL tyres for 30 mm additional ground clearance.
