The large turf tyres of the STIHL ride-on mower protect the lawn. Thanks to their rounded tyre shoulders, they reduce the formation of driving tracks.
The integral trailer hitch enables easy mounting of attachments such as the convenient PICK UP 300 tilting trailer, which can also be used as a wheel barrow.
Central cutting height adjustment
The lever for central adjustment is located directly next to the driver's seat. It enables individual adjustment of the cutting height in up to eight steps.
The robust frame construction ensures the necessary stability and driving comfort. The compact design of the STIHL ride-on mower also impresses when working with attachments such as the snow clearing set, for example.
Spring-loaded and adjustable seat
The perfect seat position can be set without the use of tools. This permits individual adjustment of the driver's seat to almost any body size.
The low step on the STIHL ride-on mowers provides ample legroom and enables comfortable mounting and dismounting.
Catching management system
The catching management system on both sides of the mowing deck provides for optimal gathering of the grass blades across the entire working width. It guides the grass to the mowing blades.
Grass catcher box with bow handle
The plastic grass catcher box can be emptied effortlessly from the driver’s seat by means of a bow handle. The "dumper" design ensures optimum filling and residual-free emptying of the grass catcher box. Cleaning can also be performed with ease.
With the STIHL single-pedal self-propulsion, the direction of travel can be conveniently switched between forward and reverse gear using a hand lever to facilitate quick manoeuvring. The pressure-sensitive pedal permits fine control of the speed between top speed and standstill. The separate brake pedal ensures immediate stopping.
Electromagnetic blade clutch (EBC)
The clutch system for mowing deck activation facilitates engagement and disengagement of the blades. It can be conveniently operated from the control panel.
With the mulch insert, the STIHL ride-on mowers can be converted into mulching mowers. For this purpose, the grass catcher box is simply removed and the mulch insert pushed into the grass catcher tunnel. This allows the grass to be shredded into fine particles inside the closed housing before they fall back into the turf, returning vital nutrients and moisture to the soil. Through this natural form of fertilising, disposal of the clippings is dispensed with.
