The RMA 248 battery-powered lawn mower is a robust, steel-decked mower for keeping the lawn in check in medium-sized gardens.
This mower is simple to use and easy to push around the garden. The 55-litre polymer grass catcher box has a fill level indicator so you know when the box is full and needs emptying. And it's quiet, thanks to the AK battery that powers it.
There are two battery slots in the RMA 248, with one live slot and one for storage, so that you always have a spare battery to hand no matter how far from the shed you are! It's part of the AK battery system, which has interchangeable batteries that can be used in the other tools in the range. It has an ECO function that conserves battery life when full power isn't needed too.
- Area covered using recommended AK30 battery: 250m²
The eco mode on the RMA 248 maximises the working time of the battery by automatically increasing or reducing the speed of the blade depending on what you are cutting.
All STIHL lawn mowers have a flow-optimised blade to neatly cut the lawn, without using unnecessary battery power on moving the air around.
Central cutting-height adjustment
It's easy to adjust the cutting height of the mower in one easy movement with the spring loaded height lever. It can be adjusted in seven stages from 25 and 75mm.
Spare battery slot
The second battery slot on the mower means you can carry a spare battery with you to help get the job done quickly.
Powder-coated sheet steel deck
The steel mowing deck on the RMA 248 is sturdy, robust and long-lasting.
The hard-wearing wheels on the RMA 248 have traction and tread patterns that are designed to make it easy for you to move the mower around your garden.
The handlebar can be easily folded over whilst the grass catcher box can be quickly removed for easy and compact.
