Adjust your cutting height from as low as 35mm
To achieve a stunning stripey lawn, you need a selection of easy to operate cutting heights. Luckily the RT 4082 comes with 8 height choices between 35 mm and 90 mm. What’s more, they are super easy to select – just slide the conveniently placed lever next to the seat to your choice.
Another great feature is Stihl’s grass guide system, designed to lift grass towards the blades for an efficient and precise cut (even at lawn edges). To activate the blades, simply press the button on the control panel to engage the blade clutch using an electromagnetic system.
Whilst mowing, your grass cuttings will be collected tightly in the generous 250-litre grass catcher box. When it’s time to empty after your mowing session, simply move the well placed lever back to empty the box – no need to leave your seat.
If you prefer to keep your grass clippings on your lawn as a fertiliser, the RT 4082 ride on mower comes with a mulching function.

The low step on the STIHL ride-on mowers provides ample legroom and allows for comfortable access to the seat.
Catching management system
The catching system guides the grass blades across the entire working width of the mowing deck. It helps to guide the grass towards the mowing blades for a more efficient cut.
Grass catcher box with bow handle
The polymer grass catcher box can be emptied effortlessly from the driver’s seat simply using the curved shaped handle. The “dumper” design ensures optimum filling and residual-free emptying of the grass catcher box. Cleaning the catcher box is also easy.
Single pedal drive

Electromagnetic blade clutch (EBC)
The mowing deck can be easily engaged and disengaged by a switch situated on the control panel.
With the mulch insert, the STIHL ride-on mowers can be converted into mulching mowers. The grass catcher box is simply removed and the mulch insert pushed into the grass catcher chute. 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, there is no need to dispose of the grass.
