With its high level of driving comfort and the clearly arranged controls, the high-performance RT 5097 C is designed for agile manoeuvring and mowing. You can individually adjust the comfortable spring-loaded seat without the use of tools. Thanks to the simple cutting height adjustment and the electromagnetic blade clutch for activating and deactivating the mowing deck, you achieve convincing results and a high mowing performance. The catching management system on both sides of the mowing deck ensures that the grass blades are gathered in ideal manner across the entire cutting width of the ride-on mower. The comfortable single-pedal self-propulsion allows you to manoeuvre even more precisely during mowing. You can switch the driving direction of the lawn tractor between forward and reverse gear with a single action. And thanks to the practical bow handle, the 250-litre grass catcher box can be emptied effortlessly from the driver's seat.
The robust frame construction gives the mower a high level of stability and driving comfort. The STIHL ride-on mowers compact design is great for using attachments such as the AGW 098 garden roller or PICK 300 tilting trailer.
Spring-loaded and adjustable seat
The most comfortable seat position can be set without the use of tools. This allows individual adjustment of the driver's seat to almost any body size.
Grass catcher box with bow handle
The polymer grass catcher box can be emptied effortlessly from the driver’s seat simply using the curved shaped handle. The "dumper" design ensures optimum filling and residual-free emptying of the grass catcher box. Cleaning the catcher box is also easy.
Catching management system
The catching system guides the grass blades across the entire working width of the mowing deck. It helps to guide the grass towards the mowing blades for a more efficient cut.
The integral trailer hitch enables easy mounting of attachments such as the convenient PICK UP 300 tilting trailer, which can also be used as a wheel barrow.
The large turf tyres of the STIHL ride-on mower help to protect the lawn. Thanks to their rounded tyre design, they reduce the formation of driving tracks.
Electromagnetic blade clutch (EBC)
The mowing deck can be easily engaged and disengaged by a switch situated on the control panel.
Central cutting height adjustment
The lever to adjust the deck cutting height is located directly next to the driver's seat. It enables individual adjustment of the cutting height in up to eight steps.
The low step on the STIHL ride-on mowers provides ample legroom and allows for comfortable access to the seat.
Single pedal drive
With the STIHL single pedal drive, the direction of travel can be conveniently switched between forward and reverse gear using a hand lever for quick manoeuvring. The pressure-sensitive pedal allows for precise control of the speed between top speed and standstill. The separate brake pedal ensures immediate stopping.
Optional Mulching function
With the mulch insert, the STIHL ride-on mowers can be converted into mulching mowers. The grass catcher box is simply removed and the mulch insert pushed into the grass catcher chute. This allows the grass to be shredded into fine particles inside the closed housing before they fall back into the turf, returning vital nutrients and moisture to the soil. Through this natural form of fertilising, there is no need to dispose of the grass.
