The STIHL battery-powered lawn mower has two carrying handles integrated into the housing for ease of transport. They make the cordless mower easier to load or return to the upright position. The carrying handles are also suitable as lashing points, for example for securing the lawnmower with a strap during transport.
Foldable grass catcher box
The innovative grass catcher box is made of plastic and features a folding mechanism that makes it particularly easy to open and empty. The current of air produced during mowing blows the clippings into the grass catcher box and ensures its optimum filling. Special vanes in the box channel the air towards the ground, and so protect the user and lawn mower alike from dust and dirt that has been thrown up. The level indicator signals the correct time for emptying. The airflow generated by the blade raises the level indicator. When the basket is full, the airflow stops. If the airflow is too low, the level indicator returns to its idle state and this is an indication to empty the catcher box. Optimal airflow is required in order for the level indicator to function fully. External influences such as wet, dense or tall grass, a low cutting height, contamination, etc. may affect the airflow and the performance of the level indicator.
The flow-optimised blade trims the grass with minimal resistance, only swirling the air as much as absolutely necessary. As a result, it consumes minimal battery capacity, which means that the stored energy is sufficient for the largest possible area.
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 easy-running wheels of our cordless lawn mowers are extremely robust and hard-wearing. They have been equipped with a traction pattern and directional stability tread pattern for effortless manoeuvring and perfect line holding during mowing.
Thanks to its foldable handlebar, the battery-powered lawn mower can be quickly and easily folded. This enables the STIHL lawn mower is be stored very compactly or moved to the next place of use.
When eco mode is activated, the speed of the lawn mower motor is automatically adapted to the actually required power. As a result, the STIHL battery-powered lawn mower consumes very little energy and can cover a larger area before it needs to be recharged.
The Vario self-propulsion enables individual adaptation of the speed of the STIHL lawn mower to personal mowing habits and lawn conditions. The mowing speed can be infinitely varied using the control lever on the handlebar.
Height-adjustable mono-comfort handlebar
The mono-comfort handlebar can be adjusted to the required body height without the use of tools for comfortable and ergonomic mowing. The handlebar can be folded for easier transport of the battery-powered lawn mower. The grass catcher box is mounted on one side for ease of access and removal.
