If you are an enthusiastic gardener and want the combination of a quiet, manoeuvrable lawnmower with mulching and collecting functions – then the Stihl RMA 443 C is for you.
Firstly, everything about this cordless lawnmower is to increase efficiency. Let’s take the 16-inch cutting deck; it’s ideal for mowing a garden the size of just over two tennis courts in a reasonable amount of time.
Secondly, the AP 300 battery combination will allow you to mow for around 8 hours without the need to recharge.
Thirdly, the mulching option allows you to switch between collecting grass clipping and reusing them to fertilise your lawn. To do this, remove the grass collection box and install the mulching key. When mowing, the lawn Stihl RMA 443 C will now effectively mulch the grass clippings and evenly distribute them across the ground. It’s a simple way to recycle waste back into the lawn to restore moisture and lost nutrients.
Priced around £500 all in, the RMA443C is undoubtedly reasonably priced for the multiple functions you expect to see in a professional model.
If you’ve owned a Stihl petrol lawnmower, you’ll understand how easy to operate they are and their durability. The cordless version of the Stihl 443 model offers the same function, except it is battery powered. Therefore, there are no emissions, no noisy petrol engine and it’s essentially maintenance-free.
Another fantastic feature is its ECO-Mode; when activated, the electrical motor will automatically adapt to the required power. Consequently, the AP lithium battery will allow you to mow longer due to the limited energy use.

Because it’s Stihl, it’s always going to have a design for a purpose. For example, the RMA 443 C uses a flow-optimised blade that reduces drag for more efficient cutting speeds. Trimming the grass with as little energy as possible is what makes this cordless mower stand out above rivals.
It’s also the simple things that make this lawn mower ideal for extended use.
There is a mono-comfort design at the handlebars, which allows you to adjust the stance of the mower to your body height. This feature allows for a more comfortable operation and friendly mowing. This handlebar you can fold down for transport and allows the grass catcher box to be more accessible.
Large grass catcher box
Speaking of the grass catcher box, the RMA 443 C has a big 55-litre foldable box with improved airflow. Inside are special vanes to help suck and compact wet and dry cut grass, allowing you to mow for longer without emptying. You do not need to check when the catcher box is full by removal; look at the handy level indicator. Its foldable ability will enable you to reduce storage space.
Easy running wheels
A simple way to improve any push lawnmower is better traction. The RMA 443 C doesn’t disappoint here with a traction pattern for better stability, grip and manoeuvrability. These hard-wearing, easy run wheel will last as for years to come ensuring a perfect mowing line with every use.
Simple to adjust cutting heights.
Selecting from a range of several grass cutting heights is a breeze, with the RMA 443 C’s simple to use control lever. A spring-loaded lever with a scale allows you to select from a minimum height of 25 mm up to a max height of 75 mm. No matter the surface or use of the lawn, there is plenty of options to improve the optimal height of your grass.
Compact to store and transport
Finally, a small but convenient benefit is the duel carrying handles of the RMA 443 C, which provides a more convenient carrying position when transporting. Additionally, there are lashing points should you wish to secure the mower with straps during transportation.
As mentioned previously, the handlebars and grass box do fold up for more compact storage.
