RT 4097 SX

Manoeuvrable ride-on mower with side discharge

General

The STIHL RT 4097 SX is a highly effective working machine. This ride-on mower enables you to mow extensive areas in a time-saving manner without needing to empty the grass catcher box. The side discharge ensures that the clippings are directly ejected during mowing. With its compact dimensions, the lawn tractor is extremely practical for all those who wish to make fast, effortless progress. With the single-pedal self-propulsion you can simply switch driving directions using the hand lever, which makes it easy to manoeuvre, even in confined gardens. The low step and ample legroom provide a high degree of driving comfort at all times. The driver's seat can be adjusted tool-free and, like the ergonomically shaped steering wheel and the easily accessible controls, supports relaxed working. The mowing deck blades can be comfortably engaged and disengaged from the control panel. The catching management system ensures optimal gathering of the grass across the entire cutting width.

Retrofitted equipment

  • Mulching function Zoom
    Mulching function

    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.
