Just got the Mag8000 & the balancer. Looks like a great unit. Well packed but the trunion adjuster had 1 end broken off. I'm assuming the trunion adjuster is the white plastic piece which inserted into the trunion pivot bearing. Also the adjusting rod threads had been damaged by pushing against the metal frame. Does the trunion adjuster come as a unit with the trunion pivot bearing or can I simply insert a new one in the existing pivot bearings. How far should the edge of a straight blade hang off the table? Seemed to be alot of sparks shooting directly at me. (I tried it with someone holding the adjusting rod). Also re: the balancer. All my blades were unbalanced. There is gass build-up on all blades. How much will this affect balance? Do they have to be perfectly clean of grass? If the blade swings down very slowly from a horizontal balancing does this mean it is only slightly unbalanced? Looking forward to giving the machine a good workout when I recieve the replacement parts thet were damaged. I have allready e-mailed the person I was dealing with. Looks like a solid well-put together machine.
