q: How 'thick' is the bench when it is folded down? (I see the carton is 12cms thick, so presumably thinner than that (if it comes fully assembled)?

q: The documentation says this - Workbench mode dimensions: 129cm x 48cm x 82cm Scaffold/platform mode dimensions: 129cm x 48cm x 54cm I want to use this as a platform for trimming trees. is the height as a platform only 54cm?
a: Yes that's correct, if you need something with more height we'd suggest something like the Mobile Scaffold Adjustable 1.8m as a better option.

My name is Klaas and I have used the Vika portable workbench & platform 2 in 1 a few times now for cleaning ceilings and windows and I am very happy with it, it’s just the right seize and height for a bucket of water and me and feels sturdy when standing on top of it.

Visa platform 2in1

This is a great work bench and a clever system to use as a two height adjustable platform strong and well made. The down side is you need have good strength as it is heavy at 20kg it can be difficult to change around or carry.

I have used as workbench for a month or so, great stable surface to do work. Easy to move around. Not yet used as platform but I see it will be quite sturdy

As the heading states. Cannot fault this product. Hubby loves it. Wish we had it years ago.

N Canterbury

Good idea but weakness at the struts

11 months ago


This is a useful platform incorporating some good ideas. One weakness is the struts which hold the legs in position. All too easily they come off the knobs they attach to making it unstable which is a worry when you stand on it.

Bruce Woodville

Love it

11 months ago


Every DIY'r should have one.. A very sturdy platform and just the right height for those high indoor jobs. (EG.. plastering the top of walls.) The ability to also be a workbench means that I use this product almost daily. Absolutely love it.

Roger Hamilton

Portable, sturdy, practical

about 1 year ago


A few of the screws on the flat board side are now well countersunk and others are flush. An easy fix but a little disappointing.

Kev Auckland

Good but received a reject

about 1 year ago


Good concept but I think I received a reject. The support gussets only work in the work bench position and not in the platform position making it unstable in this position.

Denner22 Auckland

Excellent space saver

about 1 year ago


A sturdy and compact combination of a workbench and scaffolding ladder. Taking very little space when folded down, this is excellent for places with limited storage space. The one way to improve it is to provide a NZ power outlet.

Great workbench

Already making great use of this versatile workbench. Built in a pegboard tool holder behind so everything is within easy reach. Portability a handy facet.

TG Hamilton

Excellent addition to tool kit!

over 2 years ago


This was a trifle hard to assemble but once together it has been a god send. Graeme uses it for a bench for his drop saw and for other maintenance task - and then we use it to put our BBQ grill on! Take that off & it is the perfect serving table. We used an acrylic sealer on the timber side to preserve the measurements but that's all! Very Happy with this purchase

Cluny Mahurangi West

Useful Kit

over 2 years ago


Great piece of equipment: strong, stable,versatile, compact when folded, easily stored and really useful. It has one design fault which is that it requires two people to extend and retract the legs which is a minor nuisance for which I'm sure I'll find a work around.

Loza Auckland

Just plain awesome

over 2 years ago


We used it more as a platform to stand on while painting, it made the job so much easier and it’s light enough for me to move by myself!

Mike Auckland

Good product except for support arms

over 2 years ago


Overall this is a good product at a good price. Only negative is the fold away support arms which are easily bent and stop locking away when the unit is folded. A fairly minor annoyance though as overall it is good.

Nord Canterbury

Vika Portable Workbench

over 3 years ago


Overall good and the bench is strong. But legs appear wobbly, particularly at full height as the hinges allow for about 2cm of leg movement. The bench only get stable with the side support fully in place. Side support is awkward to engage and poorly designed. One leg is hard to extend. It’s rather very heavy to carry around.

David Wellington

Vika Portable Workbench

over 3 years ago


I received the product in a speedy fashion and in good condition. The product itself is a sturdy piece of kit and is versatile and functional. Several things to consider with this product are, the supporting stays are a bit lightweight and bend easily and the workbench surface needs to be varnished to ensure the measurement markings do not deteriorate during use. Overall a very good piece of workshop equipment, being value for money.

Makes an Excellent coffee Table

over 3 years ago


I use this for a coffee / beer / dinner table in my TV room since it's stable and also has a can holder! I still need to put some sort of coating on it to prevent stains / absorption of of gravy. Pretty solid construction. Handy measurement graduations to check the size of your steak on the side. The bracing for the legs is a bit flimsy but once in place does the job. I have not yet used this for any kind of construction but it should work for that as well.

Just ideal for work around the average home. Instruction show a model with power board. Not the one I bought. Would have been 5 star with that.

Dennis Waikanae Beach

Great product

over 3 years ago


The extended height makes it the same as my work bench, which is very useful. Sturdy - I used it as a platform when pruning trees. Double-sided is great concept - keeps my muddy feet off the workbench. The only disappointment is the leg stays - difficult to connect and even worse, they don't park away nice and tidy.

Sheldon Auckland

great workbench

over 4 years ago


Good quality. Like other people, I varnished the wooden top to seal it. It has a handle to carry it and although its heavy, its not too heavy. it will be great for the odd jobs I do inside or out as a bench or a platform to stand on.

Vika Portable Workbench & Platform 2in1

Absolutely brilliant piece of kit. I did however take the liberty of removing the wood surface and giving it several coats of varnish. Recommended and a bit time consuming,but well worth it though for a piece of equipment this good and you wanna keep for sometime (or more). As always, excellent delivery time and great communication. Thanks Chaps! I am really pleased with this workbench.

The Vika workbench solved my problem of using the garage as a workshop plus housing cars and being able to be folded flat and stored against the wall gives the best of both worlds by saving space and having a solid workbench.

This workbench is by far the best I have seen on the market. Very user friendly with great features. I have been redecorating my home and it has been invaluable, easy to set up and take down. Looking forward to using it as a craft table when finished. Excellent buy. Thanks Trade Tested.

Jrp53 Auckland

Hopefully a helpful tip

over 4 years ago


Great product but here's hopefully a worthwhile tip - seal the wooden side before you use it. It will potentially soak up anything you spill on it if you don't. Apart from that, it's a great product. (Would like to see the three point plug version one day!).

Our NZ model doesn't include a power plug. But they use the same packaging as the overseas version.

I am a professional tiler and about to start a job with a 3mtr stud height and was looking for something to work off at this height and had my weight class. This is perfect. Not to big i can't get into a shower area and big enough for all others. Nice and Solid to stand on and a great work bench when not standing on. Seriously thinking of buying another one. ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
