  • pins wobble 2nd ball

    the machine spots pins on first ball just fine but , on second ball the deck picks up the standing pins , rake sweeps dead wood , then it looks like just as the rake starts forward the deck kind of moves not sure how to describe it but when that happens you can see the position of the pins in the scissors move a little then when the scissors release the pins they are tilted backwards a bit and they wobble when set for second ball...already leveled deck and performed scissor cable adj..they apear to be good....any thoughts ????

    Your moving deck cable needs to be tightened up, do this at approx 30 to 45 degrees, empty deck. Adjust so front roller is 1/8" up in the slot from the front flat on the cam.

        I agree with Roscoe. Most of the time the cable needs to be tightened, but I've seen the Moving deck/ scissors latch get squished/bent/loose and cause similar problems. The shift you see is the moving deck cam follower shifting between the blocking surface of the moving deck/scissors latch and the bearing surface that rolls against the moving deck/scissors cam on the gearbox 1:1 shaft.
