Rather than muck around trying to MacGyver this thing I decided to buy the new motor, gearbox and drive chain.
The new motor is about 2 X the size of the old motor and heavier. The gearbox looks more substantial as well. I didn't open the gear box to look at it.
I was also informed by Grizzly that should the plastic gear fail, and I know it will, Grizzly has replacement gears for $25.
1 star down from 5. Very disappointed in this product at this point.
Had this machine for 9 years now. I don't use it all that much. Maybe 30-40 hours a year.
As others have stated, the plastic gear that connects the belt motor to the chain via a worm drive has issues. I get the fact that the machine has this weak link. Better to break a $20 gear than break the machine. It happens 2 ways.
1. you manage to jam a piece of wood and the belt tries to keep turning but can't. Bang, there goes the gear.
2. you turn the thickness crank a bit too far and try to remove too much wood. To much belt pressure and there goes another gear.
I broke my first gear within months of purchasing. Since then I have replaced the gear 3 or 4 times. No biggie.
I just broke it again. Ordered a new gear. the wrong gear got delivered. I called.
"Oh, the gear you need is no longer available. Sorry. We do have the whole motor, gear and chain sprocket assembly. $180!"
Seriously? $180??? I'm not buying it especially after reading the shaft now breaks as easily as the gear. That's another $180 please!
I guess I'll have to figure some way to direct drive the motor as others have. Anyone got pics of their contraption?
Out of the box, this thing ran perfectly.Read more ›
