Cimex machine swaying....

November 23 2011 at 4:18 AM

This is a 19" cimex machine. Cimex machine swaying left/right while idling/standing still is this normal? i saw the video Rick demonstrating, the machine didnt sway or move while idling/standing still. i used brand new pads and still swaying/moving to the side while standing still.Other than that,this machine rocks! customer was ecstatic!

If the subfloor isn't perfectly level then it will have a tendency to do funny things. Don't think of it as swaying, think of it as doing a money dance.

either of mine do not sit in place while running idle. they draw to the left or right. but i only let them sit idle without touching it for a sec or 2 maybe 5 times per year. normally i turn it off or hold it in place.
