RMA 248 Cordless Lawn Mower

AK System cordless lawn mower for medium-sized gardens

Overview

The RMA 248 cordless lawn mower is perfect for home gardens with medium-sized lawns. Quiet, easy to manoeuvre and simple to use, the RMA 248 is a functional, robust, steel decked mower which can cut lawns quickly and efficiently.

Simple to use, lightweight and easy to push around the garden; a sizeable 55-litre grass box with a fill level indicator means you can spend more time cutting and less time emptying. A spring-loaded central cutting height adjustment allows for easy switching between seven stages, from 25 to 75mm. The direct-drive EC motor is powered by an AK System battery and has ECO mode built-in for when full power is not required. The foldable handlebar makes it easier to store in the garage or shed, and the grass box is easy to remove to make it more compact.

The AK System battery is fully interchangeable with all other machines in the AK System, allowing for flexible working in your garden. LEDs on the battery also show you the charge status at any time at the push of a button - so you can easily keep track of how much power you have left.

Working area covered with recommended AK 30 battery is 250 m².

    • STIHL Smart Connector Zoom
      STIHL Smart Connector

      STIHL connected is a smart fleet management system that enables professional users to digitally manage machine fleets and work assignments.

      This is managed by the STIHL Smart Connector - a sensor with a diameter of just under 5cm, which is mounted on the tool. It can be mounted on petrol, electric or battery-powered tools where it records and saves the operating hours while the motor is running and transmits this information via Bluetooth® 4.2 to the STIHL connected App (the smart connector can be mounted on non-STIHL tools too). The Smart Connector offers entirely new functions and services, as a basis for device management both in your home garden using the STIHL connected App, and for managing your machine fleet using the STIHL connected Portal.

      Here’s a few reasons why STIHL connected can help manage your fleet of tools:

      • The Digital Fleet Management keeps a record of all tools and their service record
      • You get prompts when a tool needs servicing, so you never forget to change the plug, filter or just carry out maintenance
      • You can see how many hours a tool has done, so you can plan which tools to use, replace or buy more of
      • At the end of the day, you can open the app and see which tools are next to you - so you can tell if something is missing
      • Book a service with your nearest STIHL Approved Dealer and give them access to see what work will be needed in advance.

      STIHL Connected is an intuitive way to manage your machine fleet and workload intelligently and efficiently. Visit: STIHL connected FAQs to find out more.
