RMA 460 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Construction I was on my third big box lawn mower in 4 years. Assembled in places with cheap labor and no respect for a consumer's hard earned dollar. When #3 died after 18 months of weekly service on a 1/4 lot, I decided to look for a machine reviewed/rated as more durable. I was pleasantly surprised to find the Stihl RMA 460 had the rating I wanted and was competitively priced.It was easy to set up and performed great for my yard. The dual battery set up is nice for a bigger yard and saves having to schedule the yard over two sessions. The deck is real metal and the wheels, hardware, etc. all feel solid. The motor is strong and quiet and the machine is light enough that pushing it never feels like work.I'm in Alaska where August is a wet month and that can be a problem when daylight is still 18 hours a day. If you miss a week, the grass can be tall by the time you return to it. With my old mower dead, I waited 3 weeks doing my research on this mower. Given this, the grass was 6 inches or more and there was an underlying wetness. The Stihl 460 handled this tough job with no complaints. I started bagging and then gave it up and switched to side eject. That's the only real downside to this particular mower: the fairly small bag size (about a bushel)...Having said that, I think it will be fine for the weekly mow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance for a battery operated mower Powerful, dependable and affordable. I owned Stihl equipment before and have had great success with it. It was a no brainer to buy it again. The Rma 460 battery operated mower to me is better than most gas mowers today. From start to finish very easy to use and you get the cut you want for your lawn. Very pleased with my purchase. Worked on mowers all my life and this will hang with best. Don't let the battery operated part fool you. My hardest thing before I bought it was can this mower cut my yard the way I wanted it. Well it did. Thank you Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing!!! My first use was mowing behind my teenager that had been mowing the backyard all season. She kept mowing in further and further from the fence leaving an overgrown mess. I had 2 feet of grass, full width of the mower deck, wet from the rain the previous day, and this thing demolished it no problem. It didn’t stop until the battery died. The side discharge clogged from wet grass, and had no clearance to do anything but mulch wet grass, and it plowed through it all. I hit two good sized rocks, and it barely even chipped the blade. What an amazing invention. It has variable speeds for load so it conserves the battery. It claims that you can mow 2800 square feet on an ak30 battery, and I measured out 4400 square feet on my last cut with only a weeks growth. They heavier the load, the less your battery lasts. I bought everything in this product line, and love it all. I bought additional batteries, and have way more than I’ll ever need as I can cut my 6500 square foot yard with the mower, weed eat, hedge trim, and blow with the batteries they can with no problem. If your yard is as big as mine, have 2 ak30s for the mower. Get two anyway. I have 4. Good luck. Spend the money, you’ll never want anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Homeowner Lawnmower Excellent option for smaller yards. Recently I downsized my house and also decided it was time for a smaller mower. After years of owning gas mowers I decided on the Stihl RMA460 due to Stihl’s reputation for a quality product. Since my purchase I have not been disappointed. However, be aware this is not the gas mower you might be used to. This mower is very smooth and cuts nicely. I have used it in very thick wet grass with great success. It does not have the torque or bag capacity of my old gas mower but I didn’t expect it to. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend it for a smaller yard. I would suggest buying an extra battery for extended run time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
