After two seasons, shredding twice a year,so used only eight times,
it is only suitable now for the scrap bin.The housing supporting the adjusting plate for the cutting gear has completely fractured all round.
This adjusting plate is adjusted by one grub screw about midway to the plate with a hinged point at the top.It is on this plate that all the force of the cutting action is displaced.The housing which contains the adjusting screw is not structurally sufficient to contain this force so it fractures all round. What is really annoying is that although this housing is bolted to the motor assemblie it is not possible to purchase as a seperate item and you have to purchase the whole motor assemblie.
