Anyone know which viking model this is, and is it a good starting machine for a novice?
Thanks

Its a bit hard to say what model it is really just by looking at the armcup,if you could take one of the front of the control box ie the part with the knobs on that would be much better.

The only thing that i can suggest is send another email to the seller saying if you cannot take another picture provide some further details ie what is written on the control box or walk away from the deal.On paper it seems like a worth while punt but i fear that if he cannot either provide another picture of it or provide you with further details which model it is,he could well be hding something more sinister.

Trouble is if you take the chance and buy it and it is faulty,you are totally stuffed and what appeared like a bargain has turned into a nightmare.

If its the one in the shed on that well-known auction site currently going for about 11 squids. it is a Viking 6 dx.
Or, you could email Viking at [email protected] and ask them about it ::g
