Mount my volume on remote machine

I have the need to Mount one of my volumes (All machines are mac) onto all of the machines in the lab from time to time. At the moment I'm using SSH to tunnel into each machine and then send a command to the remote machine to mount my volume using AFP.

This seems convoluted to me. Is there a way to skip the SSH step and just mount my volume onto the remote machine directly?

Thanks in advance!

So I'm not sure how often you need to do it, or if this would be helpful, but if all of the machines are MAC, all have ssh turned on, and are part of the same network, here is an app that would be a help using the process you described above. Albeit, this app would let you map all of the machines from one terminal entry.
Cluster SSH Tool for OSX -
This is literally what it says: enter command once and it sends to a cluster of terminals. In my world, we use it to run updates on several FreePBX boxes at once, but you get the idea.

You can also create an Alias to the share and drop that onto each user desktop or any folder, assuming you have rights to them.
