Agile and compact alternative to the bar mower
The AS 585 KM turns forage production for animals into an efficient and convenient task by embracing the principle of drum mowing: four flexible, swinging knife blades are fastened to the lower end of a drum and press outward when it rotates, cutting high grass up to 60 cm high a few centimeters above the ground. The long grass is then deposited in swaths for easy collection. A four-stroke OHV engine XP 200 with 196 ccm displacement and up to 4.8 hp combined with a 62 cm cutting width delivers work rates reaching 1,500 m² per hour.
The drive function is operated via a lever with a forward speed of 2.4 km/h. The rear wheels’ differential can be locked manually to increase propulsion in difficult terrain, while the guide bar can be adjusted to the operator’s height for comfortable work, or unhinged for simple transport.
An outstanding price-performance ratio and low-maintenance operation make the AS 585 KM a convenient and efficient tool for forage production.
