The RM 248 is a manoeuvrable, petrol lawn mower that delivers on performance for lawns up to 1,200m².
This mower has a 46 cm cutting width and a 55-litre grass catcher box, which means less time spent emptying the clippings. It also features foldable handlebars, so you can easily store it in the shed or garage, which have a super soft grip for comfort.
The spring-loaded central cutting-height adjustment means you can quickly adjust the height of the cut from 25 to 75 mm, using one simple mechanism.
The RM 248 also has a high-lift blade which creates a strong air current around the mower's deck. This gives you a precise finish on your lawn by making the grass stand upright before cutting it.
This petrol powered lawn mower is the ideal option for medium-sized lawns.
