AK Battery System

The STIHL RLA 240 cordless lawn scarifier is the ideal choice for scarifying or dethatch smaller, more irregular lawns. Part of the STIHL AK System, this scarifier is powered by a 36v lithium-ion battery which makes it possible to maintain your lawn cordlessly and enjoy full freedom of movement when guiding the scarifier – without any worry of cables getting in your way or emissions.

Thanks to its working width of 34 cm, the scarifier combines high manoeuvrability with efficiency – especially on lawns with lots of corners. It also gives you the option of either scraping the turf using the scarifying blades unit for better aeration or combing the dead grass and moss out of your lawn using the spring tine roller. Simply attach the tool you need in a few simple steps, adjust the working depth using the infinitely adjustable scale and start aerating or combing your lawn. Any accumulating plant remains are collected in the 50-litre grass catcher box.

The STIHL RLA 240 is energy efficient and highly stable thanks to its lightweight and robust polymer housing. The easy-running wheels make it very manoeuvrable, the foldable handlebar and two integrated carrying handles simplify transport and a spring mechanism makes removing the lithium-ion battery easy for charging or storing.

The height of the attachments can be adjusted from 7.5 mm above ground to 9.5 mm below the ground surface.


Spring tine attachment
The spring tine roller removes surface moss and lawn thatch with its tines, without making cuts in the turf. It can be used on the STIHL lawn scarifier model RLE 240 instead of the scarifying unit. It can be installed using standard tools.

Scarifying unit
The scarifying unit of the STIHL lawn scarifiers is equipped with sturdy, fixed blades. The sharp blades effectively aerate the lawn.

Easy-running wheels
The easy-running wheels of the STIHL lawn scarifiers are equipped with a traction and directional stability tread pattern. This makes the scarifiers easy to manoeuvre during lawn aeration and gives them good grip.

Carrying handle
The housing of the STIHL lawn scarifier features an integrated carrying handle. It can be used to tilt or load the machine with ease. The carrying handle also acts as an impact protector and protects the housing of the scarifier when the machine makes contact with obstacles on the lawn.

Foldable handlebar
Thanks to the foldable handlebar, STIHL lawn scarifiers can be easily cleaned and compactly stored.

Polymer housing
The polymer housing of the STIHL lawn scarifiers is made from an especially sturdy polymer. The material is resistant to impact as well as heat and UV.

AK Battery
Compact lithium-ion battery for the AK System with a voltage of 36V. Battery life depends on the device type. With charge level indicator (LED). Compatible with AL AL 100, AL 101, AL 300, AL 301 and AL 500 chargers.

    I’ve only used the spring tine attachment so far and achieved fantastic results. So much easier then de-thatching by hand with a rake. The quantity of thatch removed really needs to be seen to be believed, the catching basket would fill very quickly and I filled two garden waste bins in no time. It is incredibly hard on batteries, I was using AK20s which I already had and it ran them down in no time. I shall be getting an AK30 (which is recommended) before I repeat next year.

    The service from Radmore & Tucker was out of this world. Ordered online at 1:30 pm, received a phone call at about 3:00pm asking if I was home and the machine was delivered (already assembled) by 3:30pm … and at an attractive price. You cannot ask for more.

    Great scarifier, excellent results with both attachments in proper sequence.. it is more important to say that Radmore and Tucker are my go to company for garden machinery and accessories. Their logistics are first class with amazing delivery times. Their prices are usually below their competitors. Well done to them
