Asco Viking

Asco Viking is specially designed for seaweed mowing. It is wide and stable with high load capacity. Mowing equipment is specially designed with reinforcement to withstand impact with hard flat rock and is built with great power for hard torrential. Asco Viking mows directly into two-three tonne sacks and has the ability to extend further to the tide and in strong torrential. Asco Viking is made of steel with two conveyor belts, mower and assembly line. The conveyor belts are at the centre of the machinery and move the raw material directly into a sack on the engine ́s spout. When the sack is filled it is eased into the sea, secured in the ground and a new sack installed. A major innovation is in the implementation of the float, which increases strength and stability. There is also a new and improved version of the drive gear that provides increased torque, as well as increasing the safety of marine currents and windy conditions. The float is designed to better endure the shallows by the shore. Furthermore the design of all hardware has been modernized to reduce noise and emissions, as well as reducing fuel consumption. Asco Viking is well equipped but can be equipped with various accessories. If there are any special requests please contact us and we will find what you need.
