Mowing unit | Collection and conveyor auger system

Profihopper 1250 4WDi SmartLine

  • 1.25 m working width
  • Hopper capacity 730 l (equals 1,000 l of cuttings)
  • All-wheel drive with 0-turning circle steering
  • Hydrostatic drive with mechanical actuation

All-wheel drive 4WDi
Equipped with intelligent 4WDi all-wheel drive, the speeds of the four driven wheels are individually controlled depending on the steering wheel position and the forward speed. The Profihopper switches on the drive to the steered rear wheels only when the front wheels need this assistance. The system functions both when going forwards or backwards.

Benefits of the 4WDi technology

  • 0-turning circle steering
  • Increased safety at maximum steering lock
  • Also for difficult applications, such as, for instance, in cases of slippage on wet ground or in sloping terrain
  • All-wheel drive only when necessary reduces the fuel consumption and saves the environment

Mulching – the fed back of important nutrients

Through the special mounting of the knives on the big diameter rotor, the grass-stalks are cut off and then shredded many times. For mulching, the mulch flap is just inserted into the Profihopper and the cuttings are spread evenly across the mown area. Important nutrients are consequently then fed back into the soil.

Mowing – no matter whether moist or dry

The Profihopper does a superb job in nearly all climatic or vegetative conditions. Its well-proven AMAZONE mowing and scarifying system is the guarantor for well-groomed lawns. Whether the sun is shining or the early morning dew is still on the grass – work can begin. The Profihopper is not bothered whether the grass is wet, exceptionally tall or even thick – and it always achieves first class results.

Scarifying – improves the soil structure

The AMAZONE Profihopper is also a superb scarifyer. The scarifying knives, which are quickly attached without tools, slit the turf and thin out the lawn’s surface. Thatch is removed, collected and at the same time the soil is rolled. And so, due to the scarifying, the improved light, air, water and nutrient exchange results in a significant improvement in the soil structure.

Collecting leaves

Thanks to the superb collecting effect almost “everything” (leaves, chestnuts, acorns, etc. ...) is collected and the hopper capacity is optimised. In addition, the chopping up of the leaves by the rotating blades speeds up their decomposition. Often in the spring, autumn leaves remain covering the ground and the grass can only grow with difficulty. To improve and aid that grass growth, those leaves can be collected and the lawn aired in a single pass by simply adding the scarifying blades.

“The collection and the transfer of cuttings or leaves performs very well, even in wet conditions.”

“Most of the drivers liked the seating position.”

Rubbish collection – Clean up

The conveying system is not sensitive to foreigh objects, so the collection of tins, paper and other rubbish lying around in parks and leisure areas, is no problem for the Profihopper. Healthy animals thanks to clean paddocks. The Profihopper mows patches of rank grass and the droppings are reliably collected.

Paddock maintenance – your horses will thank you

Healthy animals thanks to clean paddocks. The Profihopper mows patches of rank grass and the horse droppings are reliably collected.

The two Profihoppers are highly appreciated by livery owners in practical use. The excellent and reliable mowing and scarifying system also stands out in the paddock with outstanding work results.

PowerCompactor – Honed for efficiency

Immediately after collection, the cuttings are compressed via the PowerCompactor’s auger conveyor system and collected in the hopper.

PowerCompactor with SmartCut

  • 1.25 m working width 
  • 72 (36 pairs) of sharpened wing blades arrange in 4 rows 
  • Rotor speed 3,400 rpm

The benefits

  • High conveying capacity provides maximum mowing efficiency 
  • Extreme compaction of the hopper contents by approximately 50 %; meaning the equivalent of 1,000/1,600 litres of cuttings 
  • Optimised fuel consumption by the perfect teamwork of engine output and forward speed

  2. A mechanical overload safety device and electronic monitoring helps prevent damage
  3. Integrated PowerCompactor collection and conveying system via the longitudinal and cross augers

More output – more efficiency

PowerCompactor: extended, reliable operation without emptying!

With the PowerCompactor, the Profihopper enters a new class in efficiency. The PowerCompactor features an auger conveying system consisting of longitudinal and cross conveyor augers, giving the Profihopper, in comparison with other mowers, a higher collection capacity and thus quicker forward speeds, even in tall grass.

Immediately after being picked up, the cuttings are compacted by the auger conveyor system and collected in the grass catcher. Thanks to this compression, 1,000 l/1,600 l of uncompressed cuttings can be collected in the 730 l/1,100 l collection hopper. This principle increases the hopper capacity by almost 50%. Time lost by emptying the hopper is immediately reduced by 50 % and the efficiency of both the machine and the operator is increased at the same.

  • Good for the operator and the environment: The delivery system does not require any air assistance and in this way operates at low noise levels and is virtually dust-free.

“The mowing unit cuts perfectly and, even under wet conditions, the cuttings are reliably delivered via the conveyor augers into the large collecting hopper.”
