Petrol lawn mower with blade brake clutch

General

RM 650 VS

The STIHL RM 650 VS petrol lawn mower features Vario self-propulsion. Its aluminium housing, which features integrated skirting protectors, is also sturdy and robust. With its cutting width of 48 cm, this model is ideal for mowing large lawns. Mowing is extremely comfortable as the mono-comfort handlebar can be adjusted to your ideal working height in several settings. A further special feature of the RM 650 VS petrol lawn mower is the blade brake clutch. This disengages the blade from the engine, thus protecting the crankshaft. It enables the grass catcher box to be emptied without restarting the engine. Just as effective: The machine can be moved to a different place of use with the self-propulsion with the blade stopped.

Standard equipment

  • Easy start engine (SmartChoke) Zoom
    Easy start engine (SmartChoke)

  • Mulching function Zoom
    Mulching function

    During mulching, the mulching blade shreds the mown grass before it falls back into the turf as a nutritional fertiliser. And with the appropriate mulching kit available as an optional accessory for this lawn mower, the machine can also be converted into a Multi-mower.

  • Multi-blade Zoom
    Multi-blade

    Thanks to the specially shaped cutting blades, the multi-blade of the STIHL petrol lawn mower shreds the mown grass. When using the grass catcher box, it is then efficiently conveyed in the box. During mulch mowing, the mown grass is directly ejected onto the lawn so that it falls back onto the turf as a nutritional fertiliser.

  • 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

    In addition to their comparably low weight, STIHL lawn mowers with aluminium housing are characterised by their high sturdiness and durability. Equally advantageous are the powder-coated surfaces, which retain their shine for a long time, unaffected by fuel and corrosion.
