Mowing your lawn with the STIHL AK System RMA 339 C
  • Mow regularly for a lush lawn – the more often you mow your lawn, the healthier it will become. We recommend mowing 2-3 times a week.
  • You should begin the mowing season in spring, with a first cut when the grass is around 7-8 cm high.
  • Do not mow the lawn if it is wet outside; blades of grass clump together when damp, making them difficult to cut cleanly.
