The Stihl RT 5 Series shows that comfort and performance are not just reserved for deluxe models. Enjoy the sprung loaded seat which is adjustable to all heights and master the controls which are close at hand: the forward/reverse drive lever at the steering wheel, the central cutting height adjustment, the blade clutch and the lever for effortless emptying of the grass catcher box. The RT5097Z features a very powerful twin cylinder OHV engine for top level performance. In addition the single-pedal operation and direct steering provide a previously unattained level of comfort during driving, manoeuvring and mowing. The Grass Guide System on both sides of the mowing deck catches grass blades at the edge of the deck and guides them towards the cutting blades. The 2 blade system with angled blades provides a neat and clean cutting pattern over a width of 95 cm.
Electromagnetic Blade Clutch
For simple blade activation
Central cutting height adjustment
The cutting height can be adjusted to one of 8 levels via a lever. The user can adjust the cutting height quickly and simply.
Innovative forward and reverse gear
The arrangement and positioning of the pedals is the same as a car: drive pedal on the right, brake pedal on the left. The forward/reverse drive switch, developed by Stihl, is straightforward and easy to use – perfect for working quickly. Thanks to the simple reversal mechanism, the driving direction can be selected using the drive direction lever. Actuation of the hydrostatic gearbox is via the drive pedal and enables precise selection of the driving speed.
Comfortable seat adjustment
The comfortable seat adjustment allows anyone to adopt an optimum sitting position on the lawn tractor. The seat can also be folded forwards.
Robust frame construction
The welded frame construction is extremely sturdy. Its shape is the result of many years of expertise and intensive long-term load testing. The bumper protects the appliance and extends up to the footplate.
Single pedal hydrostatic drive system
Right pedal – drive, left pedal – stop. Comfortable single pedal-drive system with hydrostatic transmission.
Turf care wheels
Large wheels hardly leave any traces on the lawn.
Grass catcher box
The capacity of the grass catcher box is an impressive 250 litres on the RT5 Series and 350 litres on the RT6 Series. Emptying is performed without back strain from the seat by conveniently pressing a lever. Removal and installation of the grass catcher box has also been made extremely easy for users: a brilliant solution for superior comfort!
Grass Guide System
The ‘Grass Guide System’ operates on both sides. It guides the blades of grass inwards from the edge enabling a cut which is wider by a few centimetres.
Integrated tow-bar for easy attachment of accessories.
