FeaturesOne speed drive
The RMA 448 TC is the ideal lawn mower for larger lawns, especially if you have slopes or inclines to mow. The one-speed drive propels the mower forward for almost effortless mowing.
Unique design grass catcher box
The grass catcher box on all of our cordless mowers is designed to open like a clam shell - there's no need to try and shake the grass out of a narrow opening. Simply unclip the back and it unfolds completely so you can drop it straight onto the compost heap.
All STIHL lawn mowers have a flow-optimised blade, which are designed to lift the grass, cut it neatly then push it straight into the catcher box, without using unnecessary battery life, moving the air around in the deck.
The RMA 448 TC features an eco mode - by turning it on, the lawn mower will adapt the speed of the blade to the mowing conditions, spinning faster in denser grass, or slower when carrying out a quick trim. This makes the most of the battery life to help you mow for longer.
Central cutting-height adjustment
It's easy to adjust the cutting height of the mower to one of six different levels between 25mm and 75mm in one easy movement, thanks to the spring loaded lever.
There are carrying handles on the front and top of the mower, making it easier to move and transport. You can even use the handles to easily secure the mower with a strap in a car or van too.
The wheels on the RMA 448 TC are durable and sturdy, and have traction patterns that have been designed to make it easy to steer the mower around your lawn and hold the perfect line.
Innovative mono handlebar
It may look unusual but the robust mono-comfort handlebar can be adjusted and folded at the touch of a lever, and gives you straightforward access to the grass catcher box.
Second battery storage slot
There is a second slot on the RMA 448 TC for a spare battery so once one runs out, you can simply swap it for the spare.

Tips#1Cleaning your RMA 448 TC
When you have finished using the mower, remove the battery and clean the grass using a damp cloth or soft brush. Always wear gloves and tie back long hair when cleaning or maintaining your mower.
#2Storing your RMA 448 TC
Store your RMA 448 TC 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 448 TC 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 448 TC. This means that instead of collecting the grass clippings in the catcher box, you remove the box and 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. We don't sell mulching kits online, but you can buy one from your nearest STIHL Approved Dealer. Find your nearest dealer
#5Leaves on the lawn
Did you know you can use your RMA 448 TC to collect and shred leaves on your lawn? Switching off the eco mode means that the blade speed does not drop and so the mower can lift leaves with ease.
