A highly powerful ride-on mower with grass catcher
This Stihl RT5097 Z is a high power midrange ride-on lawnmower of the RT range. Although a beginner can operate, it will always deliver expert results. This 236kg mower is powered by a twin-cylinder engine, so plenty of horsepowers to combat those uphill gradients.
Fortunately, Stihl likes to design things so they are easy to operate. As you would expect, the drive pedal is to the right with the brake on the left, where they should be. Controlling the speed is easy and precise due to the hydrostatic gearbox, simply pressing the drive pedal down further the faster the mower will go. Need to turn around? A drive switch lever is there to take you forwards to backwards in an instance, conveniently placed on the steering column.
All the controls are easily within reach, including the cutting height adjuster and blade clutch all within your seating position. Furthermore, the seat is spring-loaded to maintain support and comfort, with a quick adjustment, you can change the driving position to suit your needs.
Manoeuvring the Stihl RT 5097 Z ride-on mower is effortless, the steering wheel connects to large 18 and 15-inch tyres. These turf tyres have a round edge and optimal tread pattern, protecting your newly cut lawn whilst providing plenty of grip.
Impressive cutting ability with a grass catcher benefits
A 2 blade cutting system with a wide-reaching 95cm cutting width, is helped with the added benefit of incline blades. Performing ideal cutting conditions is also helped by the Grass Guide System of the Stihl RT 5097 Z. This very helpful feature feeds grass towards the rotating inclined blades, widening the available cut whilst lifting the grass for an even finish.
An easy to operate electromagnetic system engages the blades at the push of a button on the well thought out control panel. Selecting your cutting height from a choice of eight steps is simple, just move the central cutting height lever to adjust between levels; as low as 30mm to a max height of 100mm. Ideal for creating lush lawn stripes.
Finally, there is a massive 250-litre grass catcher box, so you can mow a large area without the need to clear up grass cutting after. And, once you’ve finished, simply pull back the boxes lever to empty.
