If you’ve owned a bright green lawn mower, shredder, scarifier or tiller, you might be wondering what’s happened to the grounds care brand VIKING?
Well, did you know that the VIKING brand has been owned by STIHL ever since 1992? Both STIHL and VIKING are premium brands with product ranges that complement each other and have been working alongside each other in harmony for nearly 30 years now. However, these two brands have now become one, with all machines under the VIKING brand becoming STIHL products from 2019.
Here are some frequently asked questions about the VIKING rebrand.
STIHL has always been proud of VIKING’s quality products, but we know that VIKING is not as well-known as STIHL in all countries worldwide so it was a logical step for all grounds care products to be rebranded in a familiar orange hue with the STIHL badge on them.
So if you have been a fan of VIKING machines, you can rest assured that producing quality tools to make your life easier is still our top priority – they’ve just had a little makeover! And for STIHL fans, you can now get a mower to match the rest of your kit, safe in the knowledge that we have been designing and delivering grounds care products since 1992.
As with all STIHL products, spare parts for the VIKING brand will be available for at least 10 years from any STIHL dealer. The 10-year period commences from the final production date of the product.
