The RMA 2 RT is a self-propelled, lightweight cordless mulching mower, with a sturdy steel deck and foldable handlebars.
Mulching your lawn is a great option if you want lush, green grass - the specially designed mulching blade on the RMA 2 RT shreds the grass into fine particles that are then dropped back into the lawn to act as a natural and nutrient rich fertiliser, which improves your lawn. For more information, take a look at our blog about the benefits of mulching.
The super-soft grip handlebar is comfortable to use, whilst the quick release clamps make it quick and simple to fold over for compact storage.
The RMA 2 RT also features eco mode. Just turn it on and the mower will adjust the blade speed depending on the type of grass you are cutting - faster for thicker, dense grass and slower on more ornamental lawns to conserve the battery.
The RMA 2 RT is part of our PRO Cordless range of tools and uses the AP-series interchangeable batteries - it is not compatible with the AK-series batteries in the COMPACT Cordless System.
