The unrivalled comfort, design upgrade and new technological highlights such as synchronous mowing deck are exceptional features of the STIHL RT6 Series ride-on mowers. High performance toothed belts ensure a low noise level and allow the blade speed to be increased. The result is a perfect cutting pattern, even in difficult conditions. The grass catcher box has a huge volume and can be emptied effortlessly from the seat. Together with the forward/reverse drive lever, the ergonomic control panel, extremely small turning circle and excellent driving characteristics, lawn mowing becomes a completely new experience.
Integrated tow-bar for easy attachment of accessories.
