We posted about the Viking Arm, a one-handed lifting tool, a couple of months ago. The company – Massca Products – recently sent one over for review consideration, in addition to one of their very well-made pocket hole jigs.
I’m still testing my sample, but so far I am quite impressed with the Viking Arm’s construction, quality, and functionality.
Yes, you can find knock-offs at Amazon and other marketplaces, but readers who tried cheap copies have only had negative things to say about them.
The Viking Arm is a bit of a specialty tool, which is why it’s taking me a little longer to test it out naturally in my projects. But, if I had to offer a verdict right now, I would enthusiastically recommend it.
The Viking Arm is useful for many types of lifting and installation tasks where you need strength and control. It has a lifting range of 6 -215 mm (~1/4″ to ~8-1/2″) and can support up to 330 pounds.
Frankly, many tools are priced at a premium, and some of them are well worth it. The Knipex Pliers Wrench. Wera Rapidaptor screwdriver bit holders. Martinez hammers. Some tools simply deliver unmatched functionality and quality. The Viking Arm seems to be a similar no-compromise type of tool.
The current Cyber promotion on the Viking Arm – ending soon – helps to ease some of the hurt on your wallet.
