Stihl’s products are all designed to be robust, manoeuvrable and easy to use – and the RM 248 lawnmower is no different. It’s a practical model you will find is friendly to operate as you ease it around your garden. The lightweight construction plays a big part in making this a simple yet powerful mower.
This Stihl product weighs in at a mere 26 kilograms, meaning it is easy to load in and out of your car and shed. In addition, the foldable handlebars are ideal for compacting this petrol lawnmower into the tightest of spaces for storage.
This mowing machine needs simple yet highly functional features to make mowing around six tennis courts of lawn comfortable and manageable. That is where the Stihl RM 248 excels in its field.
Starting at the handlebars, you’ll find a soft grip to help reduce fatigue when mowing over long periods. Off these handlebars is a pull lever to offer a convenient starting and stopping of the blades, operated with one or both hands.
What’s more, setting up how you want to cut the lawn is uncomplicated, allowing you to adjust the central height cutting system to one of seven heights. The RM 248 can cut your grass as low as 25 mm, the ideal height for mowing in spring. Should you prefer a longer cutting height, then you can go as high as 75 mm.
Light in weight with precision cutting
Pushing the lightweight petrol lawnmower is an easy task, too, thanks to the built-in 1-speed drive and its great running wheels. Known as “smooth-running wheels”, they are designed to be hard-wearing, offer improved traction and stability. This simple addition will help to ensure you can keep a straight mowing line during operation.
The RM 248 design also improves mowing efficiency by ensuring it cuts and clears grass the first course. Built with a high-lift blade, this guarantees the grass stands upright before cutting and carries the waste into the collection box through aerodynamics. You’ll be staggered by how time-saving it can be, not having to go over the same ground twice.
All of the above means the Stihl RM248 will leave a stunning precise finish to your lawn, with minimum fuss.
