The Rider R 85.1 ride-on mower

Small but fine and agile at the same time. As a ride-on mower, the Rider R 85.1 is an all-purpose weapon against tall grass in medium-sized or crooked gardens. The comfortable, adjustable seat in combination with the steering wheel and the easy-to-use controls offers a high level of comfort. These can be actuated with low pedal, steering and operating forces. The Rider R 85.1 leaves nothing to be desired by the user - especially in terms of sustainability - low-emission mowing without exhaust gases.

Technical details of the Rider R 85.1 ride-on lawn mower

With its 81 cm mowing width in a mowing radius of just 50 cm, the Rider R 85.1 is perfectly suited for crooked gardens with narrow passages. The ride-on mower is powered by a 72 V / 31 Ah Li-Ion battery, which reaches a speed of up to 6.5 km/h when driving forwards and 5.0 km/h when driving in reverse. The cutting height can be adjusted in 10 steps and centrally from 2.5 cm to 13 cm. The drive is stepless electrically and the foot hydrostat. The large catch box can be easily emptied using a telescopic lever and gives an acoustic signal when the box is full. The rear axle made of cast iron ensures a particularly long service life. The mowing pleasure is rounded off by mowing close to the edge on both sides.

Buy the Rider R 85.1

You can buy the R 85.1 ride-on mower from our online webshop or from one of our AL-KO specialist dealers near you. If you want a petrol rider with hydrostatic transmission and a more powerful engine, we recommend the R 7-65.8 HD (item number 127487)
