High-grass, ride-on mower with permanent all-wheel drive

The AS 940 Sherpa 4WD is a robust, versatile ride-on mower for difficult terrain and slopes reaching 20 degrees. The machine’s 2-cylinder Briggs & Stratton engine with 724 ccm displacement, up to 27 hp and an oil and fuel pump achieve work rates reaching 5,500 m² per hour. Permanent all-wheel drive delivers better traction uphill and stronger, safer braking downhill. The limited slip differential can be activated at any time for more safety. Hydrostatic transmission is controlled exclusively via the drive lever, which controls forward and reverse movements as well as the brake and the parking brake. An additional brake pedal returns the drive lever to neutral and automatically engages the parking brake.Equipped with the AS cross-blade system, the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD delivers impressive mulching results in grass and dense growth up to 1.5 meters high. Bearing-supported blades cut the grass while a mulching blade positioned above them shreds the cuttings, which are then deposited between the wheels for added safety on slopes and wet grass. The mower deck’s surfing suspension yields upwards to obstacles, protecting the blades and turf from damage. Cutting heights can be adjusted to 5 levels from 50–105 cm and an option mulch kit is available for even finer mulching results.

Stability and comfort

With a highly stable tubular frame, the AS 940 Sherpa 4WD performs even under harsh conditions. Operators up to 2 meters tall can operate the machine comfortably thanks to a length-adjustable seat and seat spring package. A low centre of gravity, folding rollover bar and branch deflectors are added safety features, while lashing points integrated in the frame enable secure transport.The AS 940 Sherpa 4WD is engineered for continuous operation with two separate ventilation circuits for the engine and hydrostatic transmission. 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 prevents overheating and ensures the machine’s long service life.
