Rural Lifestyle Dealer reports:
The STIHL RMA 460 lawn mower is the first lawn mower in the AK Series of the STIHL Lightning Battery System, giving AK battery users a full line of products to complete tasks around their lawns. This lawn mower is compatible with the STIHL AK 20 battery or STIHL AK 30 battery, providing homeowners with performance options based on yard size.
With a cutting deck width of 19 inches, the RMA 460 is highly maneuverable for quick and efficient grass cutting with each pass. Its 15.85-gallon grass catcher allows for more mowing and less stopping, while the handlebar is easily adjustable for user comfort.
"This mower is ideal for homeowners with small- to medium-sized residential yards," said Brian Manke, product manager at STIHL Inc. "Users don't have to worry about gas or fuel mixing. Pair that with zero exhaust emissions and the RMA 460 provides a more environmentally friendly lawn care solution compared to traditional gasoline-powered mowers."
The powerful RMA 460 features:
Multiple performance options based on yard size and can mow: approximately 2,475 square feet on a single charge using the AK 20 battery; approximately 3,440 square feet on a single charge using the AK 30 battery;
A commercial-grade, brushless electric motor with ECO Mode which automatically reduces power when mowing through light grass and adjusts to full power in tall grass to conserve battery life and extend run time;
Seven different cutting heights from 1 3/8 - 3 3/4 inches with quick and simple single action cutting height adjustment;
Mulching functionality which returns nutrients and moisture to the soil for a thicker, healthier lawn;
Quiet operation, ideal for noise-sensitive areas;
Instant start - just push the button and squeeze the bail;
Standard mower accessories: a rear bagger, side discharge chute and a mulch plug;
10-inch rear, 8-inch front ball-bearing wheels which allow for easy pushing over rough terrain;
Folding handlebar for easy storage;
Removable fuse key to prevent accidental or unauthorized use/startup of machine;
Multiple storage options allow mower to be stored in three positions: folded or unfolded on all four wheels or upright and folded in the cleaning position with blades facing the wall to save space
