The ATM 162 from Harper Turf Equipment is a hillside slope mower. It provides a level of safety and comfort unmatched by a traditional tractor and batwing mower.
The ATM 162’s Poclain Twin-Lock wheel motors offer a differential lock system providing better traction overall, especially when turning on an incline. The fiberglass hood easily flips forward for engine maintenance. In addition, the climate-controlled cab shelters the operator from the elements and also pivots forward to access the hydraulic and electrical systems.
The slope mower has a cut width of 12′ to reduce passes and get the job finished faster. Ground speed is 0 mph to 15 mph, cutting height is adjustable from 4″ to 8″, and cutting width is 144″. The ATM 162 can safely mow slopes up to 34° with self-leveling for up to 28° slopes. The automatic self-leveling system keeps the cab upright on steep slopes, leading to greater driver comfort. The 99 horsepower turbocharged Cummins© liquid cooled diesel engine gives users enough power to mow overgrown slopes. Good stability, traction, and suitable tires are advantageous over traditional hillside mowing equipment.
The ATM 162 offers gauges/lights for tachometer, engine oil pressure, water temperature, fuel gauge, volt and hour meters, hydraulic reservoir temperature, hydraulic filter plugging indicator, and deck motor load indicator. It features a welded steel frame; mechanically applied, hydraulics released parking brake; steering wheel with power steering; and an adjustable air ride seat with arm rests and seatbelt. The blade drive is a direct hydraulic motor with load sense pump and the ground drive is a Sauer Danfoss hydrostatic transmission with joystick control and three Poclain Twin-Lock wheel motors for drive wheels (6631 ft-lbs torque). The slope mower has three pairs of swinging mower blades. The 7 gauge reinforced steel mower deck has three floating decks with rear discharge and a hydraulic deck lift.
Overall dimensions for the ATM 162 measure 178″ L x 150″ W x 137″ H with cab. Standard equipment includes a Cab w/ROPS, A/C, heater, AM/FM radio, and CD player. The slope mower has a 50 gallon hydraulic oil capacity in the reservoir and a 30 gallon fuel capacity. It weighs 9,500 pounds (wet) and comes with a one year, unlimited hours warranty.
