The STIHL RM 655 RS petrol lawn mower has a powerful Briggs and Stratton engine with ReadyStart technology for easy starting. With its Vario drive and a cutting width of 53cm/21", it is the perfect mower for mowing large lawns. The central seven-setting cutting deck can easily be adjusted from 25 to 85 mm. During lawn mowing, the speed of the powerful engine always remains constant, even during changes in the drive speed, ensuring the mower is always working at its best. The mono-comfort handlebar gives uninterrupted access to the grass catcher box, making it so much easier to empty when full.

  • Features

    Standard features

    • Easy start engine (ReadyStart)

      Thanks to the ReadyStart technology, the engine of the STIHL petrol lawn mower can be reliably started up with minimal effort both during cold and warm starting. 


    • Rear roller

      This lawn roller lends the STIHL lawn mower great stability, which is great for mowing edges around borders and flower beds. When mowing, the lawn roller smooths the blades of grass in the direction of travel, creating the characteristic striped pattern on the freshly-mown lawn.

    • Self-propelled

      Self-propelled STIHL lawn mowers take the effort out of lawn mowing. The drive mechanism propels the mower without it physically having to be pushed. This makes working easier, especially on large lawns and inclines.

    • Fold-open grass catcher box with level indicator

      The plastic grass catcher box can be easily opened and emptied thanks to its folding mechanism. The current of air produced during mowing blows the clippings into the grass catcher box and ensures a high degree of filling. Thanks to the downward-facing vanes, the air is guided sideways towards the ground, preventing dirt from being thrown up. The level indicator signals the correct time for emptying. The airflow generated by the blade raises the level indicator. When the basket is full, the airflow stops. If the airflow is too low, the level indicator returns to its idle state and this is an indication to empty the catcher box. Optimal airflow is required in order for the level indicator to function fully. External influences such as wet, dense or tall grass, a low cutting height, contamination, etc. may affect the airflow and the performance of the level indicator.

    • Smooth running wheels

      The smooth running wheels of the STIHL lawn mowers are extremely robust and hard-wearing. They have been equipped with a traction pattern and directional stability tread pattern for effortless manoeuvring and to help hold perfect line during mowing.

    • Blade Brake Clutch

      The blade brake clutch disengages the blade and engine to protect the crankshaft. This allows the grass catcher box to be emptied without restarting the engine. The mower can also be driven around the garden without the blades working.

    • Super soft grip

      The super soft grip is comfortable to hold, especially when used over longer periods.

    • Aluminium housing with skirting protectors.

      STIHL lawn mowers fitted with an aluminium housing are durable and relatively low weight. The side skirt protectors ensure high durability. The powder-coated housing, retain their shine for a long time, unaffected by fuel and corrosion.

    • Central cutting height adjustment

      The central cutting height adjustment is spring-loaded, which makes it easy to set the desired cutting height in several settings. The current height is indicated by a scale.
