Q: Why does dust come out of my dust collector?

A: This may happen over time as parts wear on your machine. The pieces of the dust collector are connected with rubber bands. These may wear over time and need to be replaced. If you are using abrasive material, it may eat away at the caulk used to seal the dust collector. Maintaining a good seal is vital in the efficiency of your machine. Replace and fill as necessary.

Q: Why does my grinder vibrate?

A: Alignment is key in proper operation of your grinder mixer. If something is out of alignment, it could cause vibration in your unit. First, narrow down the machine area where the vibration is occurring (tank, mill, discharge, etc.) Once you have narrowed down the area, check the key alignment components such as bearings, augers, sprockets/chain, rotors, or shafts. Also check fasteners to proper torque.

Q: How do I get my mixing auger out of my grinder tank?

A: There is a service access lid on top of the tank. The auger is attached to a bearing on top and gearbox on the bottom. Once disconnected from both ends, you will need to maneuver the auger out of the tube and through the access lid.

Q: Why does my mixing auger quit mixing?

A: First, check the PTO and hydraulics are operating correctly. Depending on your grinder mixer model, check for proper gear or gearbox operation on the bottom of your grinder operating your mixing auger. Check for proper connection between auger and drive (is the auger turning?) Is there left over material in your tank? It could have hardened and has frozen the mixing auger. The material will need to be loosened prior to operation.
