Hates being pulled backwards

If I was going forward all the time it would be great but unfortunately I don't live in a big square padock without any trees. It's like a forward gear is on or a brake, and it's extremely difficult to go back and forth without waiting. I'm not using the drive unless I'm on a straight forward run so nothing to do with that. I wish I just stuck with my ryobi instead of upgrading to something more heavy duty Show details

Useless help line

Absolutely useless help line , described my problem with a battery powered Stihl RMA 460 V mower and the bot asked if I checked the spark plug!

I refuse to go through the rigmarole in order to have a problem solved by a computer which answered as my above review.

Battery life is horrible!!!!

I bought this because I no longer can pull start a gas mower. For the money I spent on the 460V I expected a better battery life. If the battery life is so little you should include two batteries with each mower. Very disappointed and wish I could take it back and get my money back. Should have waited for the electric start gas mower. Show details

Great mower

Bought a 460 Stihl electric mower,my first rechargeable and am pleasantly surprised, using in combination with a petrol ride on for my large country block, the 460 is great for areas the ride on can't reach,cuts well, powerful and light, my only concern is not enough adjustment to the cutting height,can see electric drive range to get better as time goes on Show details

Body drags on ground

Had this for 6 months now but going back to petrol. Can't set mower to lowest level as body drags on the ground and difficult to push. Even on next level still difficult to manoeuvre and wheels often spin under self propulsion. Show details

Cut heights no good and battery doesn’t last

I have had this mower for about 2 months. I regret buying it.

I have only a small lawn, but the battery does not last the claimed area. When the battery dies it’s too hot to charge so requires about 30mins to cool before even starting to charge.

The cut levels are terrible. Lowest is too low and second lowest is too high. Why on earth anyone would want the top few heights I have no idea.

Not worth the money. Show details

So easy to use.. love it !!!

Best mower ever!!! Easy to use, long lasting battery, lightweight, quiet, the catcher is a similar size to my previous petrol mower, I wish I had bought this battery operated Sthil years ago. I did upgrade to a bigger battery as I have quite a large area to mow and still have charge left.
Just brush the excess grass off the mower before storing away. Honestly you won’t be disappointed.. Show details

I just bought a Stihl RMA 460 V. It seems that sometimes if I hit a large patch of grass and weeds the mover stops and won't restart when pushing the power button. It happens after using if for an half hour. Is it that the battery is low or dead. One light on the battery is green. Is it a time limit issue? Overheating or what?

Why can't I get power up past my fuse key on a Stihl v RMA v 460

Does it come with a battery?

Yes. But at least two are needed if much lawn.
Don't expect brilliant life from them. They suck up the juice even when hand pushed.
Wish I'd not bought mine.
Just doesn't make the grade IMO.
