General FAQs

  • Does STIHL make lawn mowers?

    • The RMA 370 battery-powered, walk-behind lawn mower expands the versatility of the STIHL Battery KombiSystem, which allows you to power multiple tools with one easily interchangeable 36-volt lithium-ion battery. With no gas to buy or store, you'll enjoy less mess and no fumes. Easy and convenient, the mower starts instantly - just push the button and pull the switch lever, eliminating the need of pulling starter cords. Let go, and the motor and blade stop. It's lightweight, easy to maneuver and much quieter than gasoline-powered mowers – making it an ideal choice for smaller yards or noise-restricted areas. By the way, did we mention it has no exhaust emissions?

      The 14-inch cutting deck makes it highly maneuverable and great for tight spaces, around swimming pools or for smaller yards, and you can cover up to 3,200 square feet on a single charge, depending on operating and battery conditions. Need to cover more ground? The STIHL battery can be easily swapped out and recharged in less than 30 minutes with the optional rapid charger. With a high-grade steel blade and five settings for cutting height, you can give your lawn a clean, healthy cut at lengths ranging from approximately one inch to three inches. And the combination of the blade and the fan wheel above it create a strong air current which lifts the grass for a better, cleaner, more precise cut. The easy-to-empty grass catcher holds up to 10.5 gallons of clippings - and the built-in indicator lets you know when it's time to empty. Or use the optional mulching attachment to put natural nutrients back into your lawn. And when you are finished mowing, the handles fold up for easy storage in a 41" x 17.5" x 20" space (with grass catcher).

      The RMA 370 walk-behind lawn mower features a brushless, commercial-grade 600-watt electric motor that requires less maintenance than the engine on a gasoline-powered mower.

  • Why doesn't STIHL provide SRP on their website?

    • Dealers are privately owned, and they have total control on how pricing is set. STIHL Inc. sells equipment and parts to only 12 companies in the U.S., those being our branches and distributors. They in turn sell to the Dealers in the territories they service. Once the Dealer purchases the equipment or parts, they own them, and can price them at whatever they feel is appropriate. The branches and distributors provide an -SRP list to the Dealers, which can vary for each territory. However, as the Dealers are privately owned, they can choose to follow the MSRP list or price the items at their discretion. If you see these icons beside a Dealer's listing in the Dealer Locator, it is a link to a site where you can view his list prices.

  • Will a 10% (E10) blend of ethanol hurt my gas-powered STIHL product?

    • All STIHL gasoline powered engines can be used with up to a 10% (E10) blend of ethanol in the gasoline/engine oil mix. We also recommend that if a unit will be left unused for more than 30 days that it be stored "dry." This means emptying the fuel tank and then restarting and letting the unit run until all the fuel is consumed and the engine stops. For maximum performance and engine life expectancy, we also recommend using STIHL Ultra 2-cycle engine oil with built-in stabilizer.

      Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…
