Easy Lawn Mowing
Mows my large, thick lawn no worries at all, I bought a 2nd battery as I thought my lawn was to big n thick but 1 battery does it. Not having to wear ear muffs and muck around getting fuel, cleaning filters and changing oil on a petrol mower is such a time saver
Purchased in December 2019.
Can't wait for the lawn to grow..!
I had to get rid of my old pull start petrol lawnmower, I gave it away...
I looked around for either battery or key start petrol. Check out reviews and decided on a Stihl. I went to my local Stihl dealer and he recommended the RMA 460 kit, that includes the AK30 battery & charger. My logic in life is that you get what you pay for, it wasn't cheap at $817.
Anyhow I love it I have never gone inside smiling after cutting the front and back lawns.. The battery is unreal, its not the biggest voltage battery out there but boy it does the job with he...
Purchased in September 2020 at Garden Grove for $817.00.

Stihl Going Strong
Have used this mower a bunch of times in the last 5 months. Very happy with it. It is incredibly easy to use and powerful. The grass catching attachment, length adjuster, battery insert and charger are all user friendly. I'm a woman who is obviously not that strong and I find mowing my front lawn with this mower quite easy. It is not overly heavy. I've not run out of battery yet. Once I'm done I charge the battery ready for next time. Obviously I am no garden tool expert but I've had no problems and have enjoyed using it. I bought a battery and...rapid charger to go with it. The man at the store told me the battery is compatible with their other tools in the range, so I guess that will come in handy when we get a larger garden and need more tools.
Questions & Answers
I’m looking to buy a battery lawn mower, and while the Stihl 460 gets 5 stars I’m concerned about the 28 v battery, it seems very low to do the work and it does not give an indication of the area it will cover, my area is about 500 sq Mtrs of Rye.
I have the 36V Ak30 battery, although I only have 2 small areas front and back lawns. On a full charge I only use one bar then I use the same battery for my blower. 500 Sq mtrs is a big area and I'm not sure if it would do that much. I'd get in touch with Stihl for their opinion. The ak30 is the best battery..
My 460 came with the AK30, I have a big yard with thick/high cut grass, I bought a 2nd battery straight up as they had a special going, most of the time I only use 1 battery but have been times it doesn’t just make it, also my first and second mow when new the battery died really quickly but after a charge or 2 they come good, great mower and I’m still happy as with my purchase, the noise, not filling up petrol and not having to pull start is the big winner for me
the spec sheet I am looking at does not provide enough info (1) charging time for the supplied 28v battery.(2)Run time.(3) Brushless ?.(4) is the handle collapsible & what design.(5) Total weight with and without battery.(6) Is the battery life indicator only on the battery . ( 7) Does the 2 year warranty apply to the skin only what warranty applies to the Battery.
I have a small lawn with curves. Can you easily turn this mower?
I am 82 years old and have been cutting my lawn with a hand mower which cuts really well but I am wondering will this mover be easier to use

Hello Gwen, it is fairly light and manoeuvrable. There is also rma 460v (mine is the rma 460) that one is self propelled. But I'm not sure how a self propelled mover handles curves. Have a chat with your local sales centre. Just a reminder, they don't come cheap.. Good luck.
