    For my MB650T it was a year, I'd imagine it'd be the same.

    I was told my by Dealer that Viking mowers, apart from the pro (7series?) doesn't have commercial warranty as they are domestic machines..... i may be wrong though

  • If your dealer is not familiar with you, I don't see how they'd know you were using it commercially......... not that I'm suggesting you don't tell them!!

    • Maybe they would get a little suspicious if you took a mower in that had clocked up 400 hours wear and tare in 6 months! ;-)

    • Haha, just a touch mate, I've been using the same dealer for the last 20 years or so.... :-)
  • hahaha, one yes and one No, I have contacted Viking themselves but still awaiting a reply, I have asked my dealer and like everyone else they are not sure as although they are one of the bigger distributors of machinery in my area they have not sold a 21" roller model in a couple of years, this is not to say Viking mowers are not good mowers, they just push for Hondas and Hayters on the sale floor....

          yes , i think i read it a while back-      what about the  855 ???   i have s/hand

  • PRO
    Harry, I use the 655vr and have to replace the roller,chain,& sprocket every season at the cost of £350 (dealer)
    Which I don't have a problem with at all, as they are the best alrounder roller mower for me, and my needs.... I've owned honda pro, hayter pro, the honda & hayter are stronger engines, but for alround speed,weight,wet pick up, the viking out classes them....and yes to me £350 is a snip....23456 series states 1 yr warranty commercial on web site, but do not get confused, it's not wear & tear!!!! Only defaults I.e split deck....they will not cover any wear problems at all....only the 7 series.... When the roller goes again I will be purchasing a weilbang legacy 48 pro went saltex to check them out, and Personaly I think they will take over Hondas rollers, heavy yes!!! Don't mind.....kawasaki engine, varible speed, spilt roller, it's looks bomb proof, plus!!!! 3 year commercial..
    Warranty, tried to buy 1 last month from greenreeper but sold out & they said theve got 2 contractors who swear buy them exalIant wet collection, 48 pro £1000 & 56 pro £1200, Harry before you may purchase a new 655vr check out a weilbang....
