    I ordered this unit from Gerd and got it from USA to Canada in 8 days. Way Better than I can say for the local guys (dealers) who can't get me stuff within 3 weeks some times.

    Anyhow....... here it is. Real nice qualilty

    I don't have this unit mounted properly yet. I cannot use the blade straightness guage the way its set up and it may not be perfectly level but it is very close to level. I will mount it differently when I have time.

    This picture is of a Brand New Blade that has never been sharpened. See how off balance it is.

    I bought some Gator blades for one of the machines a few weeks back. I ran the blades right out of the box on the ZTR. I noticed alot of vibration. Left it as is because I knew my cone balancer wouldn't tell me much. After I received the Balancer I took the blades off the machine, sharpened them and used the Magnamatic to balance. Started the machine up engaged the blades, the vibration was gone and machines RPM was up. No joke this balancer is top notch.
