The Viking team of Scott McGregor and Bernard Regan surveyed users and then set about to design a mini skid steer loader. The key items identified in the survey comprised:
1. Comfortable working position; 2. Easy to use controls; 3. Ability to work in narrow spaces; 4. Good working visibility; 5. Ground speed with a full load; 6. Fast lifting on the arm; 7. Fuel economy; 8. Long serviceability; 9. Attachment flexibility; 10. Value for money.
The Viking Mini Skid Steer Loader Tradesman Model ticks all the boxes; with a lot of thought going into the layout of the operating controls and the standing position, the area is free from unwanted protrusions and is comfortable to drive. The Kubota 3 cylinder diesel combined with the Viking proprietary hydraulic circuit gives the Viking excellent ground speed under full load conditions. The Viking is the fastest mini skid steer loader in the market. This is good value for the customers, as it gets the job done quickly. The Kubota 3 cylinder diesel is very economical on fuel, at around 25-30 per cent longer running time than conventional petrol driven system and at the same time giving “heaps” of torque. When the customer wants long service life and performance, it is easy to justify the diesel. And when we put our green hat on, the current diesels meet tier 4 emission output with great fuel economy.
The operating width of the MSSL is also very important and again the “new generation” Viking leads the market with an overall width on “skinny” tyres of 740mm.
