Der Grasshopper vereint die Vorteile aller Mähverfahren (1) FonctionnementTonte_300dpi

The Groundkeeper combines the advantages of all mowing methods

  1. Mowing consists in cutting the blade of grass with a cutting device. The aim is to limit its growth. This operation therefore has to be performed regularly.
  2. Sickle mowing is a process, in which the plant is cut off completely at its base with a cutting device. A further operation is required to process the clippings produced into a more manageable length.

Mähen und Häckseln (1) FonctionnementBroyage_300dpi

Mowing and shredding

The AMAZONE Groundkeeper cuts the plant at its base and then chops it into several pieces which are either gathered up or allowed to fall to the ground. It combines the advantages of mowing and sickle cutting systems in a single machine. The Amazone Groundkeeper can be adapted to your lawn maintenance requirements.

Upgrade your lawn care

Why scarify?
The natural growth of a lawn can be hindered by the formation of lawn thatch. Tight mowing intervals without collecting, a poor rotting of leaves and the remainder of clippings or the formation of moss all serve to suffocate the lawn; they prevent water, nutrients and air from getting into the soil and reaching the roots. The AMAZONE Groundkeeper removes and collects lawn thatch from your lawn in a single process.

Easily disposes of lawn thatch and moss

The soil structure can be improved and renewed by carrying out a trouble-free scarifying with the AMAZONE Groundkeeper. Scarifying blades, fitted to the rotor penetrate 1 to 2 mm into the turf, breaking up the upper earth layer, cutting off parasitic plants and thinning out the lawn surface. Lawn thatch is combed out, collected and simultaneously the soil is rolled. The combination of mowing and scarifying blades produces an outstanding suction effect.

SmartCut exact cut rotor

 Outstanding cutting and collecting quality

The rotor has a large diameter and produces an air stream which gives the AMAZONE Groundkeeper an extremely high collecting capacity. The 2,650 rpm rotational speed of the rotor ensures a first-class mowing performance.

Ingenious: Mowing – Scarifying – Collecting – Emptying

The Groundkeeper’s first-class cutting and collecting performance is based on its SmartCut exact cut rotor. An outstanding feature of the SmartCut exact cut rotor is its special, V-shaped blade arrangement, which reduces energy consumption and noise. For this innovation, AMAZONE was awarded a Silver Medal by the Innovations Jury at Demopark 2013.

Due to the high suction effect provided by the SmartCut rotor, the Groundkeeper can also be used for collecting already mown grass, leaves, debris, acorns, chestnuts etc.

The benefits of the SmartCut rotor, with its V-shaped blade arrangement are obvious in comparison with the rotor technology so far, where the cutting blades are arranged linearly in rows. Because the knives, when arranged in a V-shape, do not pass the shear bar simultaneously but in very short intervals one after the other, they convey the cut material better in the direction of the rotor centre, resulting in less lateral air turbulence and, because of this, in an additional improvement in the collecting performance.

Benefits of the SmartCut exact cut rotor

  • Precise and clean cutting in one pass
  • Improved collection quality
  • Reduced noise emission
  • Simple and quick blade exchange

For quick emptying into containers or trailers – wherever you want

Convenient emptying
The hopper contents can be easily and conveniently emptied from the tractor. The overload point has been positioned far to the rear, so that even tall tanks and trailers can be optimally filled. A hydraulic cylinder lock ensures safety when working on the rotor or the hopper under the raised hopper.

All hydraulic functions are controlled using three buttons via the electro-hydraulic control unit, directly from the tractor cab, for convenient operation.

The mowing deck

Versatile, robust and safe

The large diameter of the rotor prevents grass becoming caught up. The high wear-resistant qualities of the blades result in little wear. The blade system is insensitive to foreign objects as all the knives are attached separately. The blades are suspended on the rotor via special hooks. They can be turned round and replaced without tools. A high quality cutting performance is achieved over the entire working width.

All important components are quickly and easily accessible, resulting in effective maintenance ensuring a long life span at minimum expense. Cleaning and maintenance operations can be performed quickly and easily.

  • The blades can be easily and quickly exchanged without using tools
