    So the engineer has ordered a new stress control unit not really told us how he's come to it being that like I thought there might be solenoids or sensors that might be worth checking first?
  3. Hi, Wondered if anyone has experience with this type of machine having a few teething issues. The rollers are stopping on very little resistance or jamming and even though the green light is on the stress doesnt feel like its kicking in managed to nearly stall it twice. Thanks mitch

    Does no one want to sell anything?

    Can I ask what your looking to buy and spend? I have found people only want to sell you stuff that's over priced or get you on a finance plan for something out of your budget. Think everyone is scrabbling round for every penny and there's hardly any decent second hand kit around.

    Hit and run uninsured driver.

    surely it's a hit and run criminal offence? I would invest in a large arb or off-road bumper for next time when people see that they slow down quickly
