I have not had great experiences with Wilton vises, but that’s probably because I bought some of their cheap crappy-quality vises at the local Home Depot. Wilton’s pricier vises – especially those still made in the USA – are said to be quite good.
The new ATV vise looks quite interesting. It can be attached to a standard 2″ truck hitch, and can also be attached to a stationary base. This means that you can take the same vise from your workbench to your truck, or to the field or jobsite.
The base is fixed and doesn’t swivel, which is great for portable and field use, but not so good for use on a workbench of other permanent stationary fixture.
I like that Wilton sells additional mounting bases separately (the ATV includes one in the box), which means you can move the vise to multiple locations or stations to save cost.
There’s one alternative model that I found, the Mac’s Trail D-Vise, and you could in theory buy a Wilton bench mounting plate to make the Mac’s vise just as versatile. Another option is to buy a hitch-mounted vise plate, which allows you some flexibility as to the type of vise that could be used.
