RM 655 RS

Petrol lawn mower with high comfort and lawn roller

General

The special feature of the STIHL 655 RS petrol lawn mower is the stainless steel lawn roller on the rear axle. This smooths the mown grass in the direction of travel to create the familiar traditional striped lawn pattern. With its 53 cm cutting width and 1-speed gearing, this lawn mower is particularly well suited for large lawns. The blade brake clutch is also advantageous as it enables operation without the blade running. This means, for example, that the 70-litre grass catcher box can be emptied without switching off the engine. The height-adjustable mono-comfort handlebar of the RM 655 RS not only improves handling when mowing. Following use, the petrol lawn mower can be transported with ease and stored in a space-saving manner thanks to the foldable handlebar.

    This lawn roller lends the STIHL lawn mower great stability so that even sloping lawn edges can be cut with ease and precision. When mowing, the lawn roller smooths the blades of grass in the direction of travel, creating the characteristic striped pattern on the freshly-mown lawn.

    Self-propulsion on the STIHL lawn mowers provides for the desired forward momentum during mowing. This makes working easier, especially on large lawns and inclines.

  • Fold-open grass catcher box with level indicator Zoom
    Fold-open grass catcher box with level indicator

    The plastic grass catcher box can be easily opened and emptied thanks to its folding mechanism. The current of air produced during mowing blows the clippings into the grass catcher box and ensures a high degree of filling. Thanks to the downward-facing vanes, the air is guided sideways towards the ground, preventing dirt from being 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.

  • Easy-running wheels Zoom
