Selection AP System Lawn Mowers

NEWRMA 253 Lawn mower

AP System cordless lawn mower for medium-sized gardens

Overview

The RMA 253 cordless lawn mower is perfect for home gardens with medium-sized lawns. Quiet, easy to manoeuvre and simple to use, the RMA 253 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 AP 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 AP System battery is fully interchangeable with all other machines in the AP 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 AP 300 battery is 300 m².

    Fan blade

    The fan blade ensures that lawns are cut evenly and ensures that the grass catcher box is optimally filled. Due to the strong air flow that the blade generates in the housing, the grass is lifted before cutting - thanks to the integrated and powerful air control system.

    • STIHL Smart Connector Zoom
      STIHL Smart Connector

      STIHL Connected is a cloud based 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. The STIHL connected Portal gives you a detailed overview of the status of your fleet of tools, as well as information such as duration of use on a particular work assignment.

      You can view power tool availability, analyse machine usage; plan and manage work tasks with associated resources; and analyse machine data, which you can then use to optimise your daily work processes. The Smart Connector also provides information about upcoming tool maintenance and, if needed, the system can arrange a workshop appointment directly with a STIHL Approved Dealer. Service-related tool data can also be shared with the dealer with your permission, so they can plan the servicing work in advance and order any necessary spare parts. This can shorten service times so the tool is quickly ready for use again.

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