Viking vk20 two box

Post by Barbossa76 » Wed Sep 19, 2018 9:02 pm

Hello, I've just bought a viking vk20. A earlier model. It appears.to be a two box model
Anyone any experience with these? It's going into my growing collection of machines
Was just wondering if it being a two box made it deeper? Any help be great

The VK20 model in it's standard form is a single control-box detector with the housing stem mounted. Originally marketed at the lower end of the Viking price range. A photo would be of benefit to show why it's thought to be a 'two box' model. Regards ss47

Looks like you have a very early model with the control box under the arm rest. The box on top is purely a digital readout for target ID. In later models this was all combined into one unit, so I would not think the two box was any deeper than the later ones.
