Battery-powered lawn mowers for small yards

These STIHL homeowner lawn mowers use STIHL lithium-Ion technology to cut your grass – and your carbon emissions – down to size. No gas, no cords, no exhaust emissions. Powered by a single 36-volt Lithium-Ion battery, our homeowner lawn mowers are an environmentally conscious alternative to gasoline. They’re also extremely quiet and compact, ideal for small lawns and noise-restricted areas.

    Easy to use, efficient, less noise.
    I have always said that I would never buy an electric mower, but I also always said that if STIHL made a mower I would buy it. So when I bought a house with a lawn, I also bought the RMA 510. It is easy to use, has a simple design, the battery lasts much longer than I expected. I do not like the missing feature of self propelled, but I need my excercise anyways. I also found the power to be a bit less than a commercial grade walk behind mower, Therefore it does not create enough vacuum for my ... read more preference, however I beleive it is all the mower I need for my house. As a fomer landscaper and turfgrass expert I would reccomend this mower to follk with around 1000 square foot lawns or less, on relatively flat ground. For folks with more I would reccomend borrowing or demoing 1 first.

    The Real Deal
    I've owned just about every battery mower out there over the last ten years and this beats them all hands down. With Eco mode on I mowed my entire yard with about half a charge (the RMA 410 took 1 1/2 charges). The 21" cut means I'm done faster and the cut is clean and uniform. I like that I can run at full speed when cutting heavier grass. The large wheels make the mower easy to push in any terrain. I also like that the handle height can be set higher or lower as needed. The mower height ... read more adjustment is easy and very solid. Overall this is a great mower and I would recommend it to anyone who still thinks a battery mower can't compete with a gas mower. This one definitely can.

    Easy to start and lots of power
    Let's face it, no one wants to spend l this much on a mower but if you have to then at least get one that makes life easier. This mower fits the bill. No gas, no oil, quiet, easy to start yet it still has tons of power to plow through tough grass. It picks up better than my old gas mower! I've moved my yard several times on one charge! I thought I'd miss having a self-propelled mower but I don't. This one is easy to push through thick grass. Just spend the extra and get something you'll really like.

    This is an outstanding mower!
    This is my first battery powered electric lawn mower. I bought it to replace a 12-year old gas powered push mower, which would get bogged down in thick, moderately long grass no matter how sharp the blade was. Recently a few friends had mentioned to me how good battery powered mowers in general had gotten in the last few years, and that I should get one. I chose Stihl for their reputation and the availably of spare parts should I ever need them. The RMA 510V has far exceeded my expectations. ... read more Here are some takeaways from the first month's mowing: - Mulches moderate-length, fertilized, spring-time grass with no problem even in "eco" mode, which lowers the RPMs to save energy. It maintains a constant RPM regardless of variations in grass density. This grass used to bog down my gas mower in certain areas, but not so with the 510V. I'm confident the 510V will handle anything my old gas mower could and more. - The self propelled wheels work shockingly well. I've owned gas self propelled mower in the past and was expecting the same heavy resistance when attempting to push the mower without engaging the drivetrain. It turns out electric self propelled mowers have the exact same feel as a normal, non-self propelled push mower when the drive is disabled. There are no mechanical linkages to an engine that inhibit traditional self-propelled mowers and add resistance. It's just a small electric motor powering the rear wheels, which adds no noticeable resistance when it's not engaged. The electric drive is also light and only adds 4 pounds compared to the RMA 510. - I am able to mow my 1/4 acre (with a house on it) with one AP300 battery using eco mode and the self-propelled wheels engaged. I have two batteries, but don't need the second one. I rotate them each week and store them at about 20% to ensure long life. - The mower is very light compared to gas mowers. - While performing exceptionally well for mowing, it doesn't appear this mower has the same suction as a gas mower if you are looking to suck up and mulch leaves in the fall. I blow mine so this is not an issue. - Other than sharpening the blade on occasion, there is no maintenance with this mower. I find this a huge benefit over gas models. - I have purchased a number of other Stihl AP-Series battery products. Once I put down the initial investment for my two batteries (AP300) and charger (AL500), all the other tools seem inexpensive since for the quality. Overall, I highly recommend this mower combined with two AP300 batteries and AL500 charger. You will never have any downtime regardless of how large your yard is. The AL500 will fully charge a battery before the 510V will consume one.

    Very light and easy to use
    Was skeptical of how well a battery powered mower would do we have been very happy with the way it mulches and bags A second battery has been very helpful

    GREAT Mower
    I have a small yard, 200 sg ft in front, 400 sq ft in back. The RMA 460 does well, even the first mow of spring when I procrastinate and let the back yard get too tall. It has respectable power, is light in weight, quiet, and has decent battery life. Overall, a great purchase.

    I love my new mower
    The RMA 460 has everything I always wanted in a mower. It's lightweight, easy to start, uncomplicated, economical since I don't have to buy gasoline to put in it. I had shoulder surgery and can't start a regular gas-powered mower with a rip-cord so battery power is the way for me to go. I'm loving it!

    Great Mower-2 batteries would be nice.
    I needed a new mower and had been shopping around for an electric one. The Stihl 460 fit my needs well. I was amazed at how lightweight it was and how easy it was to use. Unfortunately, my lawn is just large enough that I can't complete it on a single charge, and waiting an hour or more for it to recharge and finish kinda sucks. I'll have to buy a second( rather pricey) battery to be able to swap out and keep mowing. This is easy enough to do, but I notice several other brands come with 2 ... read more batteries with purchase of the mower, which in my opinion just makes more sense. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with it and have been showing it off to my neighbors.
