COMPACT AND CORDLESS
If you’ve got a medium-sized lawn (up to 1200m2), lack storage space and don’t have an outside electric socket, the foldable, petrol- powered STIHL RM 248 T is for you. Weighing in at 26kg, the mower is easy to manoeuvre, plus the specially designed soft-grip handlebar is comfortable to use and simple to fold for easy storage and transport.

The top of the range RM 655 VS is a worthy investment if you’ve got some cash to splash. Its handy blade brake clutch allows you to stop the blade but keep the engine running, so you can empty the grass catcher box, move an obstacle or cross a non-grass area, without having to stop and restart the engine. It can comfortably mow up to 2500m2 and is fitted with a 3-in-1 blade, so you have the freedom to cut and collect, cut and drop, or mulch, to suit the weather conditions and the condition of your lawn. Switching between mowing functions is quick and hassle-free, as there’s no need to change the blade.

The 250-litre grass catcher box can be easily opened from the driver’s seat by pulling the curve-shaped handle, whereby the clippings are completely tipped out. The clever catching system ensures the best possible gathering of the grass across the entire cutting width. £2,899.
