Mulching – returning 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 damp 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 foreign objects. Even the collection of tins, paper and other litter, which prevail in parks and leisure facilities, are no problem for the Profihopper.

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.

The benefits:

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

Profihopper 1500
– 1.50 m working width
– 88 (44 pairs) of sharpened wing blades arranged in 4 rows
– Rotor speed 3,400 rpm
– 15 to 20 % less power consumption with the new generation, thanks to the new streamlined flow into the longitudinal auger
– New reinforced, longitudinal auger drive with five, rather than three belts, for more power with less slip, suitable for the wider working width

  1. Higher longitudinal auger speed (+ 100 rpm) for better transfer of the cut material 
  2. Reinforced longitudinal auger drive with five belts
    • More transferable power
    • Less belt slip 
  3. More throughput as a result of the optimised flow:
    • Reduction in power consumption of 15 to 20%
    • Easier to unblock

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.”
(Practice test from ‘Kommunaltechnik’ magazine · 07/2013)

AMAZONE Exaktschnittrotor SmartCut (1) rotor cote_PH1250-1500_d1_180823

Quiet and reliable! AMAZONE SmartCut exact cut rotor

The outstanding feature of the rotor is the specific chevron mounting arrangement of the blades resulting in an improved performance both when cutting and collecting; and at a reduced noise level. For this innovation, AMAZONE was awarded a Silver Medal by the Innovations Jury at Demopark 2013.

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
