Carrying handles
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.

Flow-optimised blades
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.

Polymer housing
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.

Easy-running wheels
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.

Foldable handlebar
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.

Vario drive
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.

    Great little mower packed full of features that make it really useful to a small gardener like myself. The guys at Radmore and Tucker were brilliant as well and kept me up to date for when I was going to take ownership of the mower. I would definitely use at least an AP300 battery with it though if like me you need to mow more than one medium-sized lawn in a day.

  2. Gill (verified owner)

    This is the second item I have purchased from Radmore and Tucker – Excellent customer service and competitive price. Company not local to me – it would be helpful if notified delivery date – luckily I was in when it was delivered as I would not want it left by my front door. Saying that the driver was very helpful and pushed it around the back of my house for me. Easy to assemble and once the battery is charged it started on first start. The charged battery completed the cut of the 370 sq meter lawn with some charge left.

  3. Peter Davies (verified owner)

    Best lawnmower I have ever used. Easy to set up and use. Covers 400sq mtrs on a single charge. The Boss says our lawn looks like a bowling green. If she is pleased so am I. Best price from R&T and delivery within five days.

  4. PETER JAMES SINNOCK (verified owner)

    Beautiful machine. My first use of it was on my lawn which had only had an initial rough cut earlier this year and so was quite long. The mower made an effortless job of it with plenty of battery life left. It was a pleasure to use and I particularly appreciated the huge capacity of the grass collector. It was also easy to clean despite the grass being a little damp. Very pleased.

    I also found the responsiveness of the sales team very reassuring. Excellent all-round experience.

  5. Rhys Davies

    Very good machine. Battery charged quickly and mowed large back lawn with plenty still in it to mow the front. Sturdy but lighter than the petrol mower I was using so easier to manoeuvre. R&T did a great price for the package and delivery was quick. Very minor niggle – most deliveries these days are tracked but it did arrive with no warning and when I was out. The plumber took receipt! Over all, highly recommended.

  6. Lilian (verified owner)

    Excellent mower, the lawns look really good and it’s so easy to use. Quality shines through!

  7. Barbara Barrett (verified owner)

    Arrived when expected,
    set up , not to bad for us old folk,
    Only used once so far and it’s good

  8. Simon N (verified owner)

    Great mower. Used it on several of my clients lawns. I found I am cutting about 220sq m and the AP300S battery is only using one blob out of four to do this. Cuts through 6 inches of grass very easily. The box is a great design for emptying.
