Stihl debuted its new line of battery-powered zero-turn mowers at Equip Expo. The Stihl RZA 748, RZA 752 and RZA 760 battery zero-turn mowers boast all-day runtimes and commercial-grade features with quiet and exhaust emissions-free operation.
Stihl also introduced gasoline-powered walk-behind mowers to the U.S. market with four models – RM 655 V, RM 655 VS, RM 655 YS, and RM 756 YC. These models boast many features, including:
An easily adjusted mono-comfort handlebar that offers direct access to the grass catcher and easily folds for convenient transport and storage.
A spring-assisted, single-point height adjustment offers seven cutting height options for the operator to choose from.
A Kohler engine with a cast iron cylinder liner provides powerful performance with durable engineering.
The easy-to-clean polymer grass bag and the clamshell design makes emptying easier.
The RM 655 VS, RM 655 YS and RM 756 YC also feature a blade brake clutch that allows operators to keep the engine running for intermittent stops such as emptying the grass catcher.
“This is a pivotal moment in our company’s history,” said Chris Keffer, president and CEO of Stihl Inc. “We are making massive investments in battery technology, while also continuing to fully support the sustainable and environmentally friendly advancement of our gasoline-powered products to meet the demands of our customers who want the ability to pick their power source based on the application.”
