New Mower Engineered For Slopes

New Mower Engineered For Slopes: For more than 50 years, AS Motor have been working continuously on new technologies and the consistent further development of their extensive range of mowers.

The AS 1040 Yak ride-on flail mower from AS-Motor Germany GmbH & Co. is a major innovation for ride-on mowers and is a recent addition to the AS Motor family which includes both 4WD and 2WD models.

New Mower Engineered For Slopes

In high grass, flail mowers are particularly impressive due to their high work rates, robustness in the event of unseen foreign objects and offer consistent cutting results.

The AS 1040 YAK 4WD’s newly developed 100cm wide robust flail mowing unit is a superior alternative to conventional rotary mowing units. It offers significantly less risk of damage and also ensures operator safety. It has balanced weight distribution – 45% on the front axle and 55% on the rear axle which ensures outstanding traction and safe working irrespective of the terrain.

Also available from PSD Groundscare is the AS 940 Remote Control brushcutter for mowing areas where walking is difficult!

High-grass, steep slope, difficult terrain!

Mowing on steep and difficult terrain has always been a challenge for the machine operator and the AS 940 and AS 940 XL ride on brushcutter have been especially developed for this demanding application. Equipped with 27hp, 4wd, limited-slip differential and cross blade, the AS 940 easily mows dense, high grass and undergrowth on terrain where other mowers would have been forced to give up.

With ride-on brushcutters, steep slopes can be mown conveniently and economically. However, there are always areas where mowing is very unpleasant or unsafe for the operator, including steep terrain, loose substrate, mowing under trees and bushes, along hedges and even areas around wasp nests. However AS Motor have the solution – the AS 940 Remote Control which offers all the benefits of the standard AS 940 but with the option to convert to remote control when required.

The main remote-controlled functions include:

  • Professional remote control unit with 300m range
  • Adjustment of the cutting height
  • Engine on/off function
  • Mower deck on-off switch
  • Steering via remote control
  • Maximum incline transverse to the slope in remote control operation 33° (ride-on operation 21°)
  • Emergency stop of the machine

Hatz Engine Range Engineered For EU Stage V

Hatz Engine Range Engineered For EU Stage V: “Our drive to bring all our engines up to EU Stage V compliance presented us with a series of challenges, but with the development of current technology alongside new engineering advancements made our journey to a successful conclusion a smooth operation” – Joe Wilmer Managing Director Hatz GB Limited.

EU Stage V is set to be implemented throughout the EU including the UK from the start of 2019. This new regulation brings forward a demand to reduce Particulate Matter (PM) alongside extended control of both PM and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx.) emissions.

Hatz Engine Range Engineered For EU Stage V

The European commission states; ‘…engines contribute significantly to air pollution and are accountable for roughly 15% of the NOx and 5% of the PM emissions in the EU…several technical reviews have concluded that the legislation in its current form has shortcomings …….. therefore, and in line with the developments in the road sector, the introduction of new emission stage (Stage V), which would target particle number limits in addition to particle mass limits appeared appropriate’.

Hatz GB can confirm that their range of engines will comply with these regulations. This includes their popular line of single, twin, three and four cylinder engines. All Hatz engines, up to 19 kilowatts, will meet the requirements of EU Stage V without any additional exhaust emission treatment required.

Hatz are now looking further into the future anticipating that deeper cuts in emissions will almost certainly be high on the agenda of both the UK and EU regulatory bodies. With this in mind Hatz engineers are advancing their H series of engines in a push to bring down PM and NOx emissions even further.

In the development of the H-series, Hatz has already placed the emphasis on future stricter exhaust regulations. The specifications for the H-engines include: low fuel and oil consumption, reduced friction losses and reducing the overall physical size of the engine. In addition, the company has introduced an ‘Intelligent Hatz Advanced Combustion Strategy’ (iHACS), which results in fewer particulates being emitted. Engines in the H-series are designed to be extremely compact and offer maximum flexibility for installation into an end product. The H series are available as an Open Power Unit (OPU) and noise reduction, by around 60%, are achieved with their optional New Silent Pack set.

OEM’s, machinery manufacturers and all users of diesel powered machinery can view many examples of the Hatz EU Stage V compliant engines at the forthcoming Executive Hire Show, held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on 6th and 7th February 2019 (www. executivehireshow.co.uk).

Hatz diesel engines have been around since 1910. From their manufacturing base situated at Ruhstorf, Germany, Hatz produce a range of modern diesel engines from 3 to 55 kW. Their UK subsidiary, Hatz GB Limited, has its facilities centrally located in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
