NEWRT 4097 SX Petrol Ride-on Lawn Mower

Manoeuvrable ride-on mower with side discharge | STIHL GB

Overview

The STIHL RT 4097 SX ride-on mower with side discharge is ideal for lawns up to 6000m². The side discharge deck distributes the grass clippings across the lawn during mowing, perfect for less formal lawns where grass collection is not needed. As the ride-on mower does not need a grass catcher box it is very compact in size and extremely practical, especially if you want to cut your lawn with speed and efficiency. With the single pedal drive you can simply switch driving directions using the hand lever, which makes it easy to manoeuvre, even in more confined gardens. The low step and ample legroom provide a high degree of driving comfort at all times. The driver's seat can be adjusted tool-free and, like the ergonomically shaped steering wheel and the easily accessible controls, supports relaxed working. The mowing deck blades can be easily engaged and disengaged simply pushing a switch on the control panel. The RT 4097 SX comes with a 5 year extended warranty (subject to registration and annual servicing).

Additional features

  • Mulching function Zoom
    Mulching function

    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.
