VIKING lawn tractors with a new design and improved functionality


VIKING enhances its T5 and T6 Series ride-on mowers: In future, the lawn tractors will have a more modern look and offer even greater functionality. The new T6 Series models are equipped with a synchronised 2-blade mowing deck and a new, more robust gearbox. This improves performance, even under suboptimal mowing conditions.

Modern, sporty and more efficient – this is how VIKING presents its newly revised T5 and T6 Series lawn tractors for lawns of up to approx. 10,000 square metres. They have been given an attractive new look combined with optimised functionality as well as a modified chassis with simplified cutting height adjustment. This provides for even more comfortable operation of the ride-on mowers. A newly designed 2-blade mowing deck and a more robust gearbox with greater propulsive power ensure even better mowing results.

Increased rotational speed through synchronised mowing deck
The new T6 mowing deck will be converted to a synchronised 2-blade system. The grass feed to the ejection chute is optimised by the synchronised rotation of the overlapping blades, which are offset by 90 degrees. This overlap also results in an excellent cutting pattern. The mowing deck and engine have also been better matched to one another, resulting in improved performance due to an optimised speed range. This in turn has a positive impact on the collecting and mowing performance of the lawn tractors.

Improved power transmission through new gearbox
The T6 models are equipped with an advanced and more robust gearbox that optimises the engine power and provides the mower with additional traction even under difficult working conditions. This benefits the mower particularly on inclines and when the grass catcher box is full. The new,
improved gearbox also proves itself in winter operation with the snow clearing set as an accessory.

Easy maintenance through well-conceived design
Maintenance of the machine remains easy. For example, the mowing deck belt tension can be checked through a service opening in the cover, without having to remove the mowing deck. However, if removal should be neces-sary, this can now be performed very quickly. The mowing decks for the T5 Series have a cutting width of 95 centimetres, while the T6 Series are avail-able in cutting widths of 110 or 125 centimetres.

Functional cutting height adjustment
The T5 and T6 Series lawn tractors have also been fitted with a new chassis. New, revised cutting height adjustment ensures effortless operation. As previously, the cutting height can be adjusted comfortably from the driver's seat. In addition, the battery compartment has been repositioned. It is located directly adjacent to the seat, where it is easily accessible and can be opened without tools. Furthermore, this location better protects the battery from grass particles and dust. An acoustic battery-check signal warns against operating errors. The grass catcher box mounting has been optimised and is now easier to attach.

Extensive accessory range
VIKING offers a range of practical accessories for its lawn tractors, including mulching kits, deflectors, tilting trailers, garden rollers, covering hoods as well as a float charger. For winter operation there is a snow plough, snow chains and a special winter battery, which ensures reliable starting even at cold temperatures.
