We sell a lot of them, they are well made and perform well. The target buyer seems to be the man who would have bought a Honda and the different models are aimed at domestic and professional users. Parts are easily available and generally very reasonably priced. Stihl are pushing them hard in the UK as they are very popular in Europe.

Cant really offer a "back-to-back" with the equivalent Etesia.

Another brand I would generally "rate", but I cannot get my staff to take to them.

I had an Etesia out on demo for a few days prior to buying the Viking.

Just no interest from staff after a few very desultory "trials"

I do however reckon that the Honda mowers are overrated.
