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.

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.

G'day Lenny,
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..
Good luck

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


Thanks for the replies guys, we are just in the middle of a thunderstorm so I will pay my local Stihl dealer a visit.

Go to the stihl website, go to this mower and the bottom tab is documents, download the owners manual, all your questions are answered in it


GWEN Dasked

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.


Thank you Stephen for your advice
