Wiebang legacy 56 Pro

Anyone using these commercially? Opinions on reliability, wet grass collection. Warranty issues? They don't have very good reviews on Trustpilot, particularly when it comes to warranty claims.

If any forum member has used them for more than a couple of seasons would be grateful of any info. Thanks

  • I have two of the 46Pro Weibangs. I like them although they are heavy and the 53 can only be heavier still. I wouldnt recommend them for the smaller garden because of the weight but on my really large gardens they fly through leaving the most beautiful stripes. Wet pick up is good on the BBC and just about the best ever on the non BBC as it has a higher lift blade. Only minor problems so far after 4 seasons use, cables replaced etc. fully recommend them.

    i run on weibang but 53ssd for majority of lawns non roller version  i am at moment looking to add few roller mowers for other jobs but  i did look at the roller version 56 pro but was way to heavy for likings for the lawns i would be doing which are all domestic however if doing larger lawns or commercial then would recommend. always found weibang reliable great in the wet and never had any issues with them what so ever cant comment on warranty issues as never had any problems to go back to but i would suggest buying from a good local dealer.

    I have the 48 Pro BBC, now in it's thrid season. Orignally it had an issue with 'running on' & ploughing into beds etc. Weibang wouldn't admit a problem until I videoed it, then they changed the gearbox. It still did it for a bit but once the machine had been run in for a while it ceased to be a problem.

    The 48 is a heavy machine so the 56 can only be more so. I don't think I would purchase another one myself.

  •  Did you buy 1? I just ordered a 56 pro hopefully it's ok

    • Sam, no we decided to stick with our Hayter 56 pro,s Not perfect but no local Wiebang dealer and their attitude to warranty claims ( look on Trustpilot) don't need the aggravation ! Have to say the Hayters have been totally reliable cutting around an acre per week so better the devil you know ! Be interested to hear how you get on with yours.
