All-wheel drive and reverse gear for steep slopes
Equipped with the world’s only 2-stroke engine that meets the requirements stipulated by the EU Emissions Directive 97/68/EC, the AS 53 2T ES 4WD RB can mow safely on inclines of up to 45 degrees. In addition, the AS 2-stroke engine is factory-equipped with an EasyStart function; the CDI digital ignition system cuts the rpms required to start in half. The 2-stroke engine’s high torque provides full power in high, wet grass, while a third crankshaft bearing, safety blade carrier and friction discs on the wing blade protect the engine in the event of unseen obstacles.
All-wheel drive delivers propulsion even in extreme conditions such as slopes and uneven, hilly terrain.
The AS 53 2T ES 4WD RB has excellent grip thanks to large, aggressive tread drive wheels. The brake provides support on extreme slopes and can also be used as a parking brake.
Drive speed can be conveniently adjusted to suit the conditions using the variator, and the AS 53 2T ES 4WD RB comes with a reverse gear. Cutting heights can be adjusted from 30–100 mm via six levels on each axle. Work rates reaching 2,500 m² per hour are possible due to a powerful 2-stroke engine with up to 6.0 hp and a 53 cm cutting width. The AS 53 2T ES 4WD RB easily cuts grass up to 40 cm high.
