Features

Standard features

  • ReadyStart Zoom
    ReadyStart

    ReadyStart reduces the effort required for starting: just one easy pull on the starter cord and the engine starts. Using an automatic choke requiring no priming, means that reliable starting is ensured at all temperatures.

  • Vario-drive Zoom
    Vario-drive

    Vario-drive makes mowing the lawn easier especially where you have larger areas or gentle gradients. Adjust the lever and the mower starts moving at the required speed.

  • Self-propelled Zoom
    Self-propelled

    Depending on the model, VIKING self propelled lawn mowers are equipped with either single, 3 speed, or vario drive. Just push the lever and the mower sets itself in motion. Ideal for large areas of grass.

  • Central cutting height adjustment Zoom
    Central cutting height adjustment

    The cutting height can be adjusted to one of 7 levels via a lever. The desired cutting height can be precisely adjusted with the aid of a sprung-loaded mechanism via the handle on the left-hand side of the housing.

  • Height-adjustable handlebar Zoom
    Height-adjustable handlebar

    The handlebar height can be adjusted simply and quickly and fixed in 3 different positions according to the user's height.

  • Foldable handlebar Zoom
    Foldable handlebar

    Thanks to the foldable handlebar, VIKING lawn mowers are easy to transport and convenient to store.

  • Innovative grass catcher box Zoom
    Innovative grass catcher box

    The catcher box can be 100% filled, thanks to the optimised design shape and air guide. The air vents face downwards so that grass and dust do not escape upwards. The two-part catcher box design ensures easy opening and emptying.

  • Integral grass level indicator Zoom

    The integral level indicator shows when the catcher box is full and ready for emptying

  • Rear Roller Zoom
    Rear Roller

    With the aid of a full width split roller on the rear axle, the grass is rolled in the direction of travel. This results in the typical striped lawn pattern.

  • High-lift blades Zoom
    High-lift blades

    The high-lift blades combined with the aerodynamic housing produce a strong air current that lifts the grass before cutting and blows the cut grass into the grass catcher box.

  • Aluminium deck Zoom
    Aluminium deck

    High strength and lightweight die-cast aluminium housing, reinforced by a sheet metal insert and a metal guard strip.

  • Carrying handle Zoom
    Carrying handle

    The integrated front handle allows easier transportation of the machine. At the same time the handle serves as an impact protection bumper and protects the housing from coming into contact with other obstacles.

  • Replaceable side bumper strips Zoom
    Replaceable side bumper strips

    The bumper strips offer additional protection when mowing next to walls and edges. If they are marked or damaged, they can be easily exchanged and replaced.

  • Easy-running wheels Zoom
    Easy-running wheels

    Large wheels with high quality ball bearings for easy running. The tread pattern provides better traction and allows for easy cleaning.
