The new RMA 765 V is the largest battery mower in the STIHL range and is designed for use within large noise sensitive properties. This self-propelled powerhouse enables those working in public areas, such as schools and parks, to extend their hours of operation and complete their work when and where required without disturbing those around them.
The RMA 765 V, which is part of STIHL’s AP battery system, is designed for use in larger gardens or by professionals, and it can be powered in two ways. The first is using the new AR 2000 L or AR 3000 L backpack battery, which on a full charge will allow you to mow up to 3100 m²! The AR 2000 L & AR 3000 L batteries can be used to power all of the other tools in the AP system. By removing the AR L battery from the lawn mower and fitting it to the AR L carrying system, you can simply plug the AR L connecting cable directly into any other tool in the AP battery system with a cable socket. Alternatively, if you have an AP system tool with a battery slot rather than a cable socket, such as an HSA 86 hedge trimmer, simply plug the AP adapter into the slot and then plug the cable into the adapter socket to power it.
The second way of powering the RMA 765 V is through an ADA 700 double battery slot adapter. This adapter has slots for two AP batteries. You then just slot the whole adapter directly into the RMA 765 V. So if you already have a collection of AP batteries in your fleet, you can make the most of these with this adapter. STIHL suggests using either the AP 300 or AP 300 S batteries for this application.
The vario drive self-propulsion of the RMA 765 V means you can set the speed of the machine to suit you. With 5 speed settings to choose from, ranging from 1.5 km/h – 5.5 km/h, you can easily change the speed using the control panel function at the top of the handlebar. The RMA 765 V is also fitted with an ECO-mode function, which allows the mower to work even more efficiently by automatically adjusting the speed of the motor based on the power it needs at the time.
Another feature of this mowing powerhouse is its ergonomic and robust mono-comfort handlebar which can be adjusted to 3 different levels to suit the operator’s height. The handlebar is designed to provide a super soft grip when mowing, and can be folded down for easy transportation and convenient storage. The best thing about this unique handlebar design is the easy access to the 80-litre fabric grass catcher box – it’s so much easier to remove or insert the box without the handlebar in the way.
The grass catcher box itself is made from a tear-resistant fabric with a polymer base, steel frame and dust protector. It’s well-balanced, durable and comfortable to carry. Alternatively,
mulching is an option with this lawn mower as well. You can retrofit the RMA 765 V with an AMK 065 mulching kit to evenly shred the fine grass particles back onto the turf in the form of a nutrient-rich mulch. It means you have 2 different mowing options from 1 battery lawn mower, so there’s a mowing style to suit every job.
With a mammoth cutting width of 63 cm and flow-optimised synchronised twin-blades, housed in an aluminium and polymer hybrid deck, the RMA 765 V is able to take on the toughest conditions. The deck is both impact and abrasion resistant, and the polymer side protection helps maintain the mower throughout the toughest conditions.
Both front and rear wheels of the RMA 765 V have rubber tyres, with the front having a polymer rim and grooved profile, and the rear having an aluminium rim and traction profile. The front wheels of the lawn mower can be set to swivel in place or set on a zero-turn. So, if you need to manoeuvre the machine in order to mow around bushes or trees, you can do so with ease. Or, if you plan on mowing in a straight line for a long-distance across a field, you can set the machine to do this easily too.
