Viking tillers

Suited to large plots and commercial users, the new HB 585 is the largest and most powerful of the three tillers introduced by Viking.

Built for use in large areas and work in nurseries or landscape gardening, the top-of-the-range machine weighs 49kg and has a standard working width of 85cm but can be reduced to a narrower 60cm. The gearbox has one forward and one reverse gear.

The other new tillers include the HB 445 and 445R (reverse gear). Both are suited to preparing new beds, clearing vegetable patches or working in plant trimmings. Their standard working width of 45cm can be reduced to 25cm for tilling narrow rows, or increased to 60cm with the addition of simple-to-fit accessory hoes.
