This model features a sprung loaded seat, which can be adjusted for all heights and easy-to-reach controls. Specifically, the forward/reverse driver lever is at the steering wheel. Additionally, the model features a central cutting height adjustment, blade clutch and? a lever to easily empty the grass catcher box.

In terms of engine, the RT 5097 Z uses a powerful twin cylinder STIHL EVC engine for good performance.
