High performance petrol lawn mower with blade brake clutch

General

RM 655 VS

The STIHL RM 655 VS petrol lawn mower has a powerful Briggs and Stratton engine with ReadyStart technology for easy starting. With its Vario drive and a cutting width of 53cm/21", it is the perfect mower for mowing large lawns. The central seven-setting cutting deck can easily be adjusted from 25 to 85 mm. During lawn mowing, the speed of the powerful engine always remains constant, even during changes in the drive speed, ensuring the mower is always working at its best. The mono-comfort handlebar gives uninterrupted access to the grass catcher box, making it so much easier to empty when full. For even more convenience, the blade brake clutch of the RM 655 VS allows you to disengage the blades with the engine running so you don't have to restart after emptying the grass box. The fold-open 70l grass catcher box features an intergrated level indicator which lets you know when the grass needs emptying. With this petrol lawn mower, cutting large lawns will no longer be a boring chore. The RM 655 VS comes with a 5 year extended domestic warranty (subject to registration and annual servicing).

    Multi-blade

    Thanks to the specially shaped cutting blades, the multi-blade of the STIHL petrol lawn mower shreds the mown grass. When using the grass catcher box, it is then efficiently conveyed in the box. During mulch mowing, the mown grass is directly ejected onto the lawn so that it falls back onto the turf as a nutritional fertiliser.

    The plastic grass catcher box can be easily opened and emptied thanks to its folding mechanism. The current of air produced during mowing blows the clippings into the grass catcher box and ensures a high degree of filling. Thanks to the downward-facing vanes, the air is guided sideways towards the ground, preventing dirt from being thrown up. The level indicator signals the correct time for emptying.
