Mastery and fuel recommendations

It is especially important to use the corresponding type and volume of oil in the crankcase. Therefore, check the oil daily and regularly change it. Non.use of appropriate oil or the use of dirty oil leads to premature wear and breakdown engine.Type of oil, high quality detergent oil API (American Petroleum Institute/American Oil Institute) SG, SH, SJ or higher service. Choose viscosity based on air temperature at the time of operation, as shown in the following table.

Note: the use of other oils than the SG, SH, SH, or higher service, as well as an increase in the periods of oil replacement by longer ones than it is recommended, can lead to engine damage.

Note: synthetic oils that meet the proposed classifications can be used in compliance with the recommended oil replacement intervals.However, in order for the piston rings to sit correctly, a new or restored engine should operate at least 50 hours using mineral.based oil before crossing synthetic oil.

Logo or symbol on the oil container means API Service Class and SAE level of viscosity.

Contact the operating instructions starting from page 8 for detailed information about the process of checking and changing the oil, as well as oil filter replacement.

Caution: explosive fuel!Gasoline is a slight igniter and its pairs can explode in case of ignition. Store gasoline only in appropriate containers, in well.ventilated, free rooms, away from sparks or fire.Do not refuel the fuel tank while the engine is hot or it works, Spilled fuel can cause a fire in case of contact with heated details or from sparking sparks.Do not start the engine next to the spilled fuel. Never use fuel as a cleaning agent.

Buy gasoline in small quantities and store in clean and allowed containers. The container of 2 gallons or less with a drain groove is recommended. Such a container is light in circulation and avoids spilling fuel when refueling.Do not use fuel left from the previous season to reduce pollution from the sediment in the fuel system and ensure easy start.Do not add oil to fuel.Do not overfill the fuel tank. Leave a place to expand fuel.Type of fuel

For the best result, use only clean, fresh, unhealthy gasoline with an octane number of 87 or higher. In countries using the research method, it should be at least 90.Non.elected gasoline is recommended, It leaves fewer deposits of soot in the combustion chamber and reduces the volume of harmful exhaust emissions. Bowled gasoline is not recommended and should not be used in EFI engines, or other models where the emission of exhaust gases is regulated.

Gas chipland (up to 10% ethyl alcohol, 90% of unearthed gasoline in volume) is allowed for use for fuel quality in Kohler engines. Other gasoline/alcohol mixtures, including E20 and E85, should not and are not allowed to use. Any breakdowns that arose as a result of the use of such types of fuel are not covered with a guarantee.

Gasoline / etheric miximethyltretubutyl ether (MTBE. MTBE) and a mixture of unhealthy gasoline (up to 15% MTBE in volume) are allowed as fuel for Kohler engines.

How much oil is required, how to check

Depends on the volume of ICE. The required amount can be from 0.6 to 1.1 liters. You can check using a factory probe, which has a minimum and maximum marks. If the level of the lubricant component is below min, then replacement is required.

Not all equipment models are supplied with a probe with marks. In this case, you should navigate in the middle. if the level reaches the center, then there is enough oil. Well, if there is no probe, then there is enough lubricant for full work, you should visually. look behind the pouring neck. If the liquid almost reaches it, then the change is not needed yet.

How to change oil in a gearbox yourself

Conducting this manipulation for the gearbox is important as well as the regularity of the procedure described above. The process is almost no different from the replacement of the lubricant in the motor and is a sequence of actions:

  • It is necessary to place the device on a flat surface;
  • Under the drain hole, place a suitable container and gently open it;
  • Wait when the entire old product merges;
  • Close the drain and open the cork of the hole for the bay;
  • insert a watering can in it, pour the product in a volume of about 2 liters;
  • Check with a probe (wire 70 cm long, bent into an arc) level. it should exceed 30 cm.

With intensive operation, the replacement will be required after 50 hours of operation.

Important! Car oil should not be used for agricultural equipment, regardless of whether it works on diesel or gasoline ICE. The equipment motor differs from the vehicle engine engine features, temperature modes and some other characteristics.


Kohler Aegis engines are equipped with a powerful dense paper filter surrounding a cylindrical core. It is not recommended to clean the filter, a dirty filter should be replaced.

Instructions for removing, cleaning and replacing the components of the air filter see in the “air cleaner” section of the engine operation manual.

All Viking (Viking) models are equipped with a linear fuel filter. The filter is located in the gas pipeline next to the gas tank.

Replace the fuel filter every 250 hours of operation or once a year. To do this, weaken the fasteners with a narrow screwdriver and remove the rubber fuel hoses from the filter. Install a new filter with an arrow to the engine. Tighten the fasteners. Run the engine and check for leaks.

During the, replace the oil filter when changing the oil. Then change the oil filter every 50 hours.

Before installing a new filter, lubricate the rubber seal of the filter with fresh machine oil. Wrap the filter manually so that the seal touches the filter pipe. Tighten another ½. ¾ turnover. Run the engine to check for leaks. Drown out the engine and check the oil level. If necessary, share oil.

Non.mounted equipment

Most Viking cultivators are adapted for installing various auxiliary equipment. At the same time, users can choose both devices of original production and products of other companies. We give a list of attachments that can be useful to users when processing a site.


The basic tool for processing soil, which is included in the standard set of delivery of each cultivator. Quantity, shape and structural material on the type and purpose of the model.


Highly specialized equipment designed to mechanize the work on planting potatoes. The user can independently choose the depth and landing frequency based on the type of site. The classic design of potato.resident is a metal bunker on wheels or soil.bearing, equipped with an assault and disc hir.


This type of attachment equipment is designed to collect potatoes and other root crops. The design of the device resembles a plow-bush, the dumps of which are made in the form of long rods separating the Earth from tubers.

One of the most popular devices designed to process virgin areas and heavy soils. Due to the features of the design of the plow, it easily buries into the ground, leaving behind even stripes of plowed ground.

Used to care for the vegetation of the site, as well as for harvesting hay for livestock. By type of design, rotary and segment mowers are distinguished. Such a hinged equipment is connected to a walk.behind tractor or cultivator using a power selection shaft, which provides the necessary performance of work.


Special equipment designed to provide comfortable operating conditions when processing large areas. The standard design of the adapter-sprout includes a seat mounted on a frame with wheels. Connection with a cultivator or a walk.behind tractor is carried out using a rigid adhesion.


Useful device designed, as the name implies, for hilling of beds after planting agricultural crops. According to the type of execution, discs are distinguished and arrow.shaped cummers.

The standard delivery kit for each Viking cultivator necessarily includes the user’s guide. an important document that describes the methods of the safe operation of the cultivator in detail, as well as the rules of the first launch after purchase, the rules of the game and the procedure for serving the model.

First launch and

The reliability of the work and the life of the cultivator depend on the correctness of the procedure. Before starting, you must make sure that there are technical liquids in the engine crankcase and the apparatus gearbox.

The is carried out with a minimum load on the engine, which will provide comfortable conditions to eliminate factory defects and the production of friction pairs. It is worth noting that after the in the engine crankcase, metal shavings accumulate. That is why immediately after the, the engine oil must be replaced, after washing the lubrication system.

Service and storage

When conducting service, it is necessary to be guided by the recommendations of the manufacturer of the model. The owner of the apparatus must remember that violation of the service schedule leads to automatic cancellation of the warranty.

Between working seasons, the Viking cultivator is recommended to be stored in a dry and warm place. Before conservation, it is necessary to clean the surface of pollution, as well as get rid of fuel in the tank and carburetor.

The main malfunctions and ways to eliminate them

In the process of performing work, the owner of the cultivator may encounter various malfunctions caused by factory defects or natural causes. When eliminating problems, it is necessary to be guided by the recommendations of the manufacturer. Consider the most common malfunctions.

Cultivator engines recommended by manufacturers

Consider the most famous engines for cultivators, including motor from Honda.

Consider the procedure and features of oil change in cultivators. Regardless of the type of engine, it is not recommended to use individual additives for lubricants, which are in large quantities on the market. This can reduce the performance of the composition.

The spent product should be disposed of with the least damage environment. The best solution is to take the old oil to the processing point.

In the engine

The first oil replacement in the cultivator engine is carried out after running. This is the name of the process of grinding the moving parts of the apparatus, during which small metal particles fall into grease. The duration of the depends on the specific brand of the cultivator. Subsequent replacements should be carried out, guided by the regulations for maintenance of the user managers, but at least once a year.

The process of replacing the lubricant in the cultivator engine is quite simple:

  • The cultivator must be installed on a horizontal plane and drowned;
  • We wait for 5-10 minutes to make the oil completely glass into the engine of the engine;
  • Unscrew the crankcase plug, drain the oil into a pre.prepared container;
  • Pour new lubricant fluid. Check the level with the probe, and in its absence. pour the oil to the control hole.

Important information! When planning the frequency of conduct, it is necessary to take into account the intensity of the load. If the lubricant darkened to the color of the fuel oil, it should be urgently replaced.

In the gearbox

Oil change in the gearbox should also be performed in accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturer.

  • Install the cultivator on the stands and drown it out;
  • Find and surround the drain plug;
  • In order to avoid environmental pollution, lubricants must be drained into a pre.prepared capacity of a suitable volume;
  • We are waiting until the oil is completely dragged out of the drain hole. Since transmission lubricants have high viscosity, you will have to wait 5-10 minutes, depending on the temperature on the street;
  • Tightly twist the plug of the drain hole;
  • We unscrew the plug plug;
  • Using a funnel, pour fresh lubricant fluid.

The level is checked using a probe or control opening, depending on the design of the cultivator gearbox.

Please note that most modern models are supplied with a dry gearbox, in which you need to pour oil after buying.

Is it possible to fill in car oil

Owners of garden technology, often ask themselves: “Is it possible to fill in car oil into the engine of the cultivator or walk.behind tractor?””. This topic is especially relevant for vehicle owners who are independently engaged in repair and maintenance. The use of one brand of oil can reduce the cost of acquiring lubricants.

In fact, it all depends on the brand of the device and the type of engine. Manufacturers of cultivators equipped with four.stroke gasoline engines usually allow the use of appropriate appropriate oil for classification API. Accurate information should be sought in the technical leadership of the model.

If the cultivator is equipped with a two.stroke engine, the use of ordinary automobile oil is strictly prohibited. The fact is that the lubricant, designed for four.stroke engines, is poorly mixed with gasoline, which leads to loss of lubricating qualities and accelerated wear of the cylindrical group. In addition, the combustion of car oil is accompanied by the formation of a large amount of ash, which is deposited on the piston and the walls of the cylinders, clogs exhaust channels, and also clogs the electrode of the spark plugs.

Reviews of Viking motor cultivators

Owners of this technique note that it costs somewhat more expensive than a “weighted average” Chinese motor.cultivator, or even a walk.behind tractor (for many models). However, in terms of reliability surpasses most of its “classmates”. Of course, not one of the Viking cultivators will suit for the processing of virgin lands or especially dense soils: any of them is too light for these purposes. He is only able to “jump” along the virgin stern, but do not pile up into it. But about hard work on digging and loosening the earth in the garden with such an assistant, you can safely forget.

A big plus of any Viking cultivators is its compactness. With a folded handle, it can accommodate quite freely in the trunk of a car. It is best to load it and get it out of the trunk, so as not to tear your back, but when there is no one to help, you can cope with one face and one face.

Cutters are removed and installed very quickly and conveniently. They are fixed using special “fingers”, which are included. Additionally, you can purchase two cargoes of 9 kg for a motor-cultivator, 2 kg, wheels-groups and cumber.

Frasing knives in dense ground are quite quickly blunt. It is very convenient to sharpen them, without even removing, making it an ordinary “corner grinder”. The air filter, which is recommended to be changed as it is contaminated, according to the experience of the owners, for five/six seasons of use remains as clean as it was from the store. The cultivator itself is not very dirty during work, and it is not at all difficult to keep it clean. After work, you can simply wash the water with a stream of water from the garden hose, and enough.

In this regard, the alarming signal came from one of the owners. Two seasons later, the next spring, when he started it to process the site, he found that the gearbox was jammed. I turned to the service center-the masters said that when disassembling the gearbox, water turned out to be water. over, apparently, for a long time: all the shafts were rusted, and dirty water with butter. The inside of the aluminum corps of the gearbox is all in a white raid.

It is assumed that the Viking cultivator gearbox is not serviced, high.quality oil is flooded in it, which does not require replacement for the entire service life of the equipment. Accordingly, the gearbox does not provide traffic jams to check the level and drain of the oil.

Since the warranty period (1 year) is over, the owner of the cultivator was offered paid repairs. The instructions say that after using the cultivator, it can be washed with a high.pressure sink, you can not only direct the stream of water at the drive shaft and on the seals. The owner washed the cultivator not with a sink of high pressure, but an ordinary garden sprayer. Apparently, protection against water is not well thought out, and it is important to take into account so as not to get into the described situation.

Another owner of the Viking cultivator said that over time, the belt creak appeared during his work, and when the front walk was turned on, the technique began to slip as it were. It is necessary to adjust the engine with a cable or displacement of the engine. It is possible that the belt was just stretched out. Some owners express dissatisfaction with the fact that the knives of the cuttings of this brand are thinner than many other models of the same technique. Therefore, and complex areas they can bend.

Among the advantages of Viking motor cultivators, they note: their low noise, modest fuel consumption, significant depth and quality of processing: a very soft land is obtained, in which there are no lumps, and the rake is not needed; the ability to shift the control handles to the right and left, so as not to trample the just plowed land. And finally, praise deserves the design of the Viking motoblocks!

Non.mounted equipment

In order for the one.toe tractor to become more functional, manufacturers provide for the use of attachments, which increases the functionality of the unit. Below is a hinged equipment for Viking motoblocks:

  • Mills, as a rule, are delivered in the kit, but if necessary, they may be bought. Used to cultivate soil of any complexity. The quality of the weeding depends on the power of the motoblock model.
  • The hip is used to create furrows of various sizes and widths, which in turn are intended for planting plants. After germination of seedlings, the device can be used to hill the soil.
  • The cultivator is installed on a single tractor instead of wheels and is used to loosen soft soil. It looks like a cutting design with sharp knives.

Before the first launch or after prolonged downtime, a run is must be carried out, which extends the service life of the engine and allows all the details to be lost to each other. The procedure for running a little time and does not require significant effort.

Certain actions should be performed:

  • Check the presence of motor oil.
  • Run the engine and leave to work at low speeds for 30 minutes, periodically including the gears.
  • The next 8 hours can be used at half power.
  • After the end of the, drain all the engine oil and replace the new.

Such actions will help maintain the performance of the engine and large nodes. It must be remembered that the lubricant and gasoline should be refueled according to the recommendations of the manufacturer.

Below is a video review where you can clearly watch how easy and just work on the Viking HB 585 walk.behind tractor

Since all models are equipped with 4-stroke engines, the appropriate oil should be filled. The same depends on the seasonality of the work. Most oils have a viscous structure, so the use of semi.synthetic oils in the cold will not be effective.

Since the cooling system on Viking motor blocks is used, you should monitor its cleanliness. Of particular danger is work on dry soil, since dust penetrates inside the casing and settles on the nodes and elements of the cultivator.

Safety and proper storage rules

Basic rules for the operation of cultivators Viking:

  • Before starting work, check the serviceability of all parts and spare parts;
  • In the process of working with equipment, periodically check the indicators of engine oil and gasoline;
  • are at a sufficient distance from rotating mills;
  • Do not leave the unit under direct sunlight for a long time;
  • After completion of work, be sure to clean the unit from lumps of dirt using a brush with water.

Causes of breakdowns and elimination of problems

Independent repair of cultivators is possible in case of other problems. For example, it happens that you need to replace the candle when the device does not start or swimming when loading. When carburetor is polluted, gasoline enters the air filter.

Candle replacement may be required due to the oxidation of contacts, insulation violations, and soot accumulations. The element is considered completely failed in the absence of a spark of ignition. Sometimes it is enough to clean it, rinse in gasoline and can be installed again in place.

When the engine speed swim, the piston and other components are broken down. The regulation of the ignition system will help to avoid premature wear.

  • Inspect the engine flywheel and check it with opening the contacts that are inside the unit.
  • Check the distance between the “anvil” and “hammer”. one of the important components of the system.
  • Manually carry out the movement of the flywheel before the piston squeezes.
  • Return the part to the place. The emerging one.time knock indicates the operation of an overall coupling.
  • Turn the flywheel against the passage of the hours until the points located on the case.
  • Adjust the distance between the contact and the “cam”. For good ignition, the minimum is the minimum. 0.25 mm, and the maximum is 0.35 mm.
  • Further, the adjusted part is fixed with a screw.

Compliance with the rules for servicing a cultivator air filter is one of the important conditions of long.term operation of the unit. In order not to worsen the quality characteristics of the motor, the filter must be cleaned after each use of the device. For this:

  • Gently remove the lid;
  • Take the paper filter in your hands and inspect;
  • peel a soft rag or brush;
  • Wash the space thoroughly before the intake hole;
  • It is recommended to wash the tube in soapy solution;
  • The purified element must dry;
  • For better work, you can lubricate the part with oil;
  • Be sure to remove excess lubricants;
  • return the element to the place, making sure of the correctly collected components;
  • If there is too much dirt, replace the spare part.

The car will provide the correct storage for a long service. Before conservation, the cultivator must be cleaned of dirt. The purified surfaces are wiped dry by a rag and treated with lubricants that prevent corrosion. To store the cultivator, you need to choose a dry and clean place.
