Even greater choice in the high-end range

New: VIKING 6 Series lawn mowers: MB 650 VE and MB 655 RS

The VIKING premium lawn mowers from the 6 Series are made for the highest performance and mowing enjoyment. VIKING is now adding a further two machines to the range: the MB 650 VE with convenient electric start and Vario drive and the MB 655 RS with lawn roller for stylish striping and ease of mowing along the edge of the lawn. With cutting widths of 48 and 53 cm respectively, these petrol lawn mowers can handle lawn sizes from approx. 2,000 to 2,500 m².

Slopes, flowerbeds, paved pathways and trees– no two lawns are the same. That is why every VIKING lawn mower series offers numerous model versions so that every user can find the right machine for their specific needs. With the MB 650 VE and the MB 655 RS, VIKING is now adding a further two premium machines for large lawns to the 6 Series. All eight mowers deliver maximum comfort, performance and durability. Like all mowers from the 6 Series, the two new mowers also feature a mono comfort handlebar with three height settings that adapt optimally to the user and provide unhindered access to the spacious large 70-litre grass catcher box.

The MB 650 VE (cutting width 48 cm) for lawns up to approx. 2,000 m² is the ideal mower for those who need an especially easy way of starting the engine. Its battery-powered electric start responds at the touch of a button. Another comfort feature is the Vario drive. The infinitely variable speed control allows the machine speed to be individually adapted to the user's needs. This makes it easier to mow different terrains.

The MB 655 RS (cutting width 53 cm) is designed for the ambitious amateur gardener as well as for semi-professional use on lawns measuring up to 2,500 m². With its metal rear roller on the rear axle, it is the specialist for lawn edges. The roller permits precise mowing, without damaging either the edge or the lawn. It also produces the famous stripe pattern on the lawn, which for many is synonymous with the English lawn. The MB 655 RS also demonstrates its credentials in challenging situations: a metal inner ring installed in the housing protects the chassis against any foreign bodies thrown up, while the blade brake clutch (BBC) developed by VIKING disengages the crankshaft from the blade so that any impacts during mowing do not make it as far as the engine. The BBC also enables the blade to be switched on and off while the engine is running. This means that the engine can simply continue to run on driveways or when stopped in the corner of the lawn.

Robust materials, state-of-the-art technology and lots of comfort for convenient operation
All 6 Series premium lawn mowers feature high-quality basic equipment, including the lightweight but very robust aluminium housing. The VIKING mowing technology ensures a perfectly cared-for lawn with the 3-in-1-function thanks to multi-blades. Specially shaped blades shred the mown grass before it is either ejected, compactly collected or – depending on the equipment – evenly distributed on the lawn as mulch.

The mowers can be safely and easily steered in every situation thanks to their profiled wheels with double ball bearings and their balanced centre of gravity. The super soft grip handle and the quiet operation of the mowers make prolonged periods of use extremely comfortable.
