A carrying handle has been built into the body of the mower to make it easy for you to transport it.
Innovative grass catcher box
The grass catcher box is made of a sturdy plastic, and is designed to open like a clam shall so it's simple to empty quickly. The airflow produced by the blades directs the clippings into the box so that it fills right to the top, at which point the handy level indicator drops down so you know exactly when to empty it. The vents in the box face downward so you don't get covered in dirt and dust when mowing.
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 lever. There are five different heights to choose from between 25 and 65mm.
The hard-wearing wheels on the RMA 235 have traction and tread patterns that are designed to make it easy for you to move the mower around your flower beds, trees and other obstacles in the garden.
The housings of the STIHL battery-powered lawn mowers are made of a high-quality polymer material. This extremely lightweight polymer housing combines high resistance and robustness against forces, heat and UV radiation.
The handlebar has two different height settings and can be easily folded for storage.
The eco mode on the RMA 235 automatically increases or reduces the speed of the blade depending on what you are cutting, to make the most of the battery life so you can mow for longer.
