The RMA 443 VC is a powerful cordless lawn mower with vario speed drive, so you can adjust the speed of the mower from 0 – 4.5 kilometres per hour using the lever on the handle. This means that you can speed up when mowing larger expanses of lawn, or slow down when manoeuvring around flower beds or obstacles. The speed of the mower is also independent from the speed of the blade so it always has a consistent blade speed and a precise cut.
It's simple to use too with a height adjustable handlebar that can be adjusted to suit your height, and an eco mode that adapts the power and speed of the machine to perfectly suit the mowing conditions, meaning that you can make the most of your battery life.
The mono-comfort handlebar and easy opening grass catcher box make emptying the grass clippings a breeze too - just unclip the back of the box to empty the clippings in one quick movement.
The RMA 443 VC is part of our AP System of cordless tools and uses interchangeable AP batteries. It is not compatible with the AK System of battery-powered tools.
- Area covered with recommended AP 200 battery: Up to 420m²

FeaturesVario speed drive
The vario speed drive means that the speed of the mower can be adjusted to suit the job in hand. Simply increase the speed when mowing large, flat areas or decrease it when mowing smaller areas or around obstacles.
Easy opening grass catcher box
The grass catcher box has a unique design - just clip it open from the back and drop it all straight into a garden waste bin or compost heap.
All STIHL lawn mowers have a flow-optimised blade to give a precise cut on your grass and push it straight into the catcher box. This gives you a neat finish, but also conserves the battery life.
The RMA 443 VC comes with an eco mode button - simply switch it on and the mower will adapt its speed to the mowing conditions to make the most of the battery.
Central cutting-height adjustment
It's easy to adjust the cutting height of the mower in one easy movement with the spring loaded lever. There are six different heights to choose from between 25 and 75mm.
There are two carrying handles on the RMA 443 VC, so it's easy to move and transport. You can use the handles to easily secure the mower with a strap in a car or van too.
The durable wheels on the RMA 443 VC are specifically designed to make it easy to steer the mower around your lawn.
The mono-comfort handlebar has two different height settings and can be easily folded for storage.

Tips#1Cleaning your RMA 443 VC
When you have finished using the mower, remove the battery and clean using a damp cloth or soft brush. Always wear gloves and tie back long hair when cleaning or maintaining your mower.
#2Storing your RMA 443 VC
Store your RMA 443 VC in a clean and dry area away from children at all times. Don't forget you can fold the handle over and put the grass box on top so it takes up less space.
#3Looking after your battery
Don't use a damp or wet battery in your RMA 443 VC and avoid using them in extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold). Find out more about looking after your battery on our blog.
#4Using a mulching kit
You can also buy a mulching kit for your RMA 443 VC. This means that instead of collecting the grass clippings in the catcher box, you use the mulching kit to cut the clippings finely and drop them back on to the lawn as a natural fertiliser. Find out more about mulching on the STIHL Blog.
