Summary:

A full review of the slide gate opener Viking K2 is presented.

 

There’s a new cat on the market and it bears a strong name and a sturdy construction. Here is the review of the Viking K2, a gate opener which will open and bravely defend you gate system.

Viking K2 gate opener

This class 1 residential gate opener is designed to handle slide gates up to 700 pounds and 30 feet in length. It is the perfect solution for high traffic residential gates and it offers you technology and efficiency in a single package.

The best part is

It is made to operate at 100% duty cycle and under extreme conditions. No matter if it is -20 degrees or up to 160 degrees F your gate opener will continue to function. Another amazing feature is the lighting and surge protection (10,000 Amps/20,000 Volts).

The LCD screens displays everything you need to know: the voltages, amps, diagnostics and gate status. While the power saving technology reduces the current draw while on stand by mode. And if a power outage occurs the Adaptive Digital Limit control maintains open and close limit position.

It gets even better

This unit has a Wireless Master/Slave kit which provides a reliable and secure wireless communication. You are given remote access (from your computer or any handheld device) to the control board settings, programming, operator diagnostics, controls, gate status and error notifications.

The Viking also offers you the backup battery which provides 100 continuous cycles at 100% duty cycle. A low voltage option is also included.Viking K2 package

A word from the users

“I just installed my 6th Viking K2. It had an issue with the battery backup. Tech support must have spent an hour with me on the phone, but we fixed it!! They are dedicated professionals that took the time with me and didn’t have to. Viking is now the only operator I will use!! I am a loyal customer now. Thank you!!!”

“I’ve been installing Vikings over the last 7 years. Tremendous success, excellent customer service. Viking even gave me a NX circuit board as an emergency backup for my clients. I haven’t had to use it yet because I haven’t had any problems​. I believe in this company my success is based on the products I install every day.”
