Testimonials
Darin Miller Miller Pallet Company
We can get more production and changeover time is faster than the Duo. We are able to get a better quality pallet.
Darin Miller Miller Pallet Company
I've been in business for 13 years and I have always run a Viking. In my opinion, if you don't have a Viking then you can forget the pallet business; Viking is the way to go. For what we do, the Turbo is exactly what we need. Cody worked really hard to sell it to us and he did a good job. Richmond was a selling point and it is where we got together with Cody to start the process of the new 505. We're very pleased with Viking.
Pat McGinn Bass Lumber Company
"We had tried out a lower cost machine similar to the Turbo, but I am convinced the Turbo is the way to go."
Pat McGinn Bass Lumber Company
The other machine we owned lacked the reliability and performance results that the Turbo gives us so we were definitely better off spending a little extra money on the 2008 Turbo.
Pat McGinn Bass Lumber Company
We will definitely consider purchasing another Turbo when the need arises.
Tad Hegsted Challenger Pallet & Supply
With 10 machines in 3 different locations, Hegsted and his employees have appreciated the versatility and capabilities of the Champion QC306 and 304A Classic.

"Having one person run the machine makes the job easier and more efficient. There is no need to coordinate a team of employees around a machine."
Josh Stephens The Timbermem Inc.
We had a fire in 2010 and it destroyed all of our machines.  Within 3 days, Viking provided help and replaced the machines for us immediately.
Josh Stephens The Timbermem Inc.
"The smooth operation of the Champion significantly picked up the production of our pallets."
Pat McGinn Bass Lumber Company
McGinn's company praised the continuous improvements and support Viking has provided over the years and how well the Turbo's upgrades have increased their productivity.
Darren Turner Pontrilas Timber
We can call them in the afternoon and have whatever products we need by the very next day.
Wayne Hader The Pallet Factory
"With the addition of the mat kit, our block pallet production has increased by at least 100% or more per day…With this mat kit from Viking, we were able to improve our pallet quality and it has opened up many more opportunities for business in the future.  I would recommend that any pallet builder being asked for block pallets take a look at adding a Mat Kit to their Viking Champion.  We did, and we are very satisfied with its overall performance."
Stephan Harms Pacific Pallet
“Kenneth (Viking service technician)  worked with our employees at a steady pace to make the machine more productive.  More time was spent making pallets, so he was able to make the machine easier to work with.”
Stephan Harms Pacific Pallet
“Kenneth (Viking service technician)  left on such a positive note that we are looking forward to him coming back at a future date to help us improve our operations.”   
Gil Viera
"Viking's parts department is second to none.  It doesn't matter what part I need, 9/10 times I will receive it the next day.  Having our machines up and running that quickly with minimal downtime is what's important."
Henry Bowman C&L Wood Products
I choose Viking nailing machines because their extremely long life, their adaptability to the specialized American stringer pallet market and their outstanding technical support.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
Buying a Viking is a partnership.  Viking is #1 in how they build and service machines, the company that buys a Viking should have a #1 mindset in how they do things too.
Paul Dalpe Kings Wood Products
If the company that buys the machine takes ownership in how fast the machine is running and they look at it the way Viking looks does and try to perfect every issue, they can maximize production.
Tad Hegsted Challenger Pallets
We've proven the short changeover times in our Montana plant.  It only takes us 10 to 15 minutes to go from a 3 to 4 stringer pallet.  From one type of 3 stringer to another, it only takes us 5 minutes.
