The RME 339 C is the ideal lawn mower for medium-sized lawns up to 500m².
It is easy to manoeuvre around flower beds, decking and other garden furniture, and the spring-loaded central cutting-height adjustment is simple to change so you can always cut your grass to the length you want.
The 40-litre easy-opening grass catcher box is a useful feature too, as is the foldable handlebar.
The RME 339 is designed to make mowing your lawn as easy as possible.
The highlift blade delivers a precise finish on your lawn and helps make sure the grass box is filled right to the brim, by creating a strong air current around the blade and into the grass catcher box.
Innovative grass catcher box
The plastic grass catcher box is designed to open like a clam shell - simply unclip it and hold the box over the bin or compost heap using the handles on both sides to pull it open. The box also has downward-facing vents on all sides to direct any dust or grass towards the ground when you're mowing.
Smooth running wheels
The wheels on the RME 339 are extremely hard-wearing and have a traction pattern that makes it easy to hold a perfectly straight line when mowing.
Integrated cable strain relief
The built-in strain relief stops the cable from pulling when mowing and helps it to stay securely connected to your extension lead.
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 70mm.
A carrying handle has been built into the body of the mower to make it easy to transport.
The handlebar is foldable for easy storage.

Tips#1Cleaning your RME 339
When you have finished using the mower, unplug it and clean using a damp cloth or soft brush. Always wear gloves and tie back long wear when cleaning or maintaining your mower.
#2Storing your RME 339
Store your RME 339 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.
#3Using a mulching kit
You can also buy a mulching kit for your RME 339. 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. We don't sell mulching kits online, but you can buy one from your nearest STIHL Approved Dealer
#4Check for wildlife
Don’t forget to check your work area for wildlife before starting to use your tool. In particular, you should check for nesting birds before trimming hedges, as well as checking for other small animals such as hedgehogs before trimming long grass.
