    Great Cordless Lawn Mower
    Great cordless mower that cuts through tall grasses as easily as short grass. Used for cutting grass under trees and along fence lines where the riding mower is unable to reach. With over 30 trees and over 600 feet of fence line, just a single charge of an AP180 battery does it all.

    Excellent!
    It is a bit expensive compared to the other mowers but I believe it is proportionate to the added value. It is well made. I am not experiencing any issues with it. Simple operation and start. To mow my front and back yard, it needs an extra charge. However, I recommend getting the AL500 battery charger and AP 180 battery. The speed of charging at 30 minutes makes it worth the extra. If I ever want to upgrade to another AP180 battery, then I could run the mower as long as I want to by just ... read more switching and charging the battery while using the other one. I get about 30 minutes runtime per a battery charge.

    Nice Product for a small yard
    Our RMA 370 is perfect for our small yard. The mulcher blade and coversion is super. Makes grass and leaves disappear in one pass. Tall grass slows the motor, but we seldom allow our grass to be an issue. We also have a lithium/ion battery trimmer and blower. Both are terrific and have PLENTY of power. The range of speeds is especially helpful and very quiet. Thanks !

    Even cut & great battery
    A couple of weeks ago I wrote a glowing review about my > 2 year experience and regards for my RMA370 mower and my intention to purchase the RMA510. I made the purchase and have just finished my first mowing session with it. My lawn is a little more than 1/2 acre and I am 69. Although I don't see th posting for my earlier review, I would like to make some comments regarding other postings, which can generically apply to any of the Stihl products. Most of the negative comments I have read pertain ... read more to the RMA370 not being able to do something for which it was not intended to do. As an example; the instruction manual states that it is not suitable for tall or wet grass, yet some reviewers have listed that as a complaint. How does that apply to this review? Use the right product for the job. When I bought my RMA370, it was the only battery operated mower Stihl made. I knew it had a narrow cutting path and that it would take multiple battery charges to cut my entire yard. I knew to mow frequently enough to not let my lawn get too tall, because the RMA370 was not designed for it. Knowing those limitations, I see no reason to fault the mower. As soon as I found out that the 21 inch RMA510 was available, I knew it would be much better suited to my needs. Now for my review of the RMA510. It does what I expected, by providing an even cut, which is what any homeowner wants. The AP300 battery far surpasses the run time of the AP180 battery. A plus is the fact that my 3 AP180s will also power the RMA510 and the AP300 will power my 4 other Stihl devices (chain saw, edger, hedge trimmer & blower). Is the 510 heavier - absolutely, but that is to be expected of of mower with a significantly wider cutting swath. The steel deck adds a great deal of weight over the non metal deck of the RMA370. The lighter 370 deck has never chipped or cracked, despite stones hitting inside. I wish the 510 decks were made of that lighter material to make it more manuverable. As long as you have a fairly level yard, even if you are an elderly wimp like me, the 510 is manageable. The only other suggestion I would make is for Stihl to offer the same type of blade ("ninja" type, with the split on each end) on the 510 as is an option on the 370. Although a "mulching" blade comes with the 510, it does not have the split at the end of the blade which makes grass clippings very fine. Such fine clippings eliminate the need for bagging and leave no grass clippings behind the mower. Again, this assumes you are not going to let your grass grow too long. Regarding cost. Yes, the initial cost is relatively high compared to a 21 gas mower (spare battery needed if you will follow mowing by using other battery powered devices such as the blower), but no gas, oil, spark plug or other maintenance is required. Plus you are getting a very high quality, reliable product. Very happy with my new purchase of the RMA510.

    Excellent Mower
    After selling my gas mower in the fall, and researching cordless mowers all winter, I finally narrowed my decision down to two options - The Stihl RMA-510 vs a unit sold at big box stores. The Stihl mower is brand new for this year, and had next to no reviews available, so I knew I was taking a chance; the other mower has been around a long time and has plenty of positive feedback. The main deciding factor came down to two things: 1 - The Stihl brand and associated quality with that brand, and 2 ... read more - Parts and service availability of Stihl products. Unpacking the mower was a breeze - fold up the handles and it is good to go. Nothing to it. After fully charging the battery I decided to do a test run on my 3000 square foot yard (it is spring here, and the grass has not yet started growing, so I dropped the deck to the lowest height and sheared off the old growth). I was pleasantly surprised with the power this mower was packing. ECO mode worked as described, but I preferred turning it off and letting it run at full power. Bagging seems to be very good with good suction. I did notice some clippings blowing through between the bag and rear flap. I will keep an eye on this once I am cutting growing grass it I suspect it will not be an issue. Battery life seems to be at least as good as advertised. After about 3000 square feet, I had over 50% charge remaining on my AP 300 pack, so that was a pleasant surprise. I am also guessing that I made the mower work a little harder than it will under normal conditions, so that is promising.

    Finally a Stihl Lamnmower that looks like a lawnmower
    The power is a little less than gas engine (as expected), but not significantly less. The battery life is decent. I cut about 5000 sq ft in 30 min and it makes it on one charge. They really should have added self-propelling, but if you have a relatively flat lot that shouldn't bother you too much. I like the classic look, the earlier models were a little too George Jetson for me.
