Easy start engine (ReadyStart)
Whether starting the mower from cold, or restarting after use, the Ready-start technology will ensure the engine fires effortlessly into life each time.
A huge amount of the effort required to mow a lawn is taken away thanks to the drive mechanism propelling the mower forward without the need for the user to push the machine along. This is useful when mowing larger lawns or on inclines.
The RM448 VC is not only self-propelled, but the speed of the propulsion can be fully controlled and tailored to your own desired speed. The speed can be infinitely varied using the simple lever on the handlebar.
The specially designed high-lift blade creates a super strong current of air within the housing, meaning the grass is forced to stand upright before being cut leading to a precise finish. The clipping are then pulled through into the grass box via the powerful air flow system.
Fold-open grass catcher box with level indicator
The folding mechanism means the grass box can be easily opened and emptied. The powerful current of air blows the clippings into the box quickly and efficiently, ensuring a high degree of filling. Dirt is prevented from being thrown up because of downward facing vanes which guide the air sideways towards the ground. When the box needs emptying the level indicator will signal this.
Smooth running wheels
The wheels on all STIHL mowers are robust and hard wearing as well as having great traction.
The integrated carrying handle makes moving and carrying the mower a much easier task. It also gives a point to tether the machine to during transportation.
The foldable mono-comfort handlebar provides for easy handling during mowing and removal of the grass catcher box. Moreover, the STIHL lawn mower can be stored and transported in a space-saving manner. The handlebar can be adapted to your body height without using tools and ensures ergonomic working.
The housing is made from a lightweight yet robust polymer, and is resistant against force, heat and UV.
