I used this recovery machine for the first time Fri last week. Haven't had an opportunity to get it out this week so far. My concern is that something is out of balance in it that shouldn't be. I had it sitting on top of a package hp unit, but the unit's top panel was fairly sturdy. When I started the recovery machine up it shimmied quite a bit. Throttling down didn't change a thing. I picked it up and it felt like I was holding a sawzall in my hand running full tilt. Other than that the thing worked fine. Pulled the Puron out in no time. Pretty much at the rate listed in the manual for it.
So I called Appion support and explained this to the guy who answered. He said it'll vibrate a little, if it's working ok then I'd tend to think there's nothing wrong with it. So my question is, do any of you who have one of these notice the same shimmy. If not I think I'll send the thing back. My old Inficon ran smooth as silk, no vibration in the handle at all.
