A favour for a noob, please....

Post by cleaver » Mon 21 Jan, 2019 3:21 pm

Hi All,

Going to see a used Morso Underpinner next week, but the seller doesn't have any wedges. But of course, I want to test it.

I wonder whether some kind soul would sell me a few please (7mm and 10mm, if possible). Say 50 or 100 of each would be terrific.

Please PM me if you can help me....and what you'd want for your trouble (post as cheap as you like....no big rush!)

Also, (on this thread) any opinions on the machine / what to beware of & ask about/advised maintenance routine would be gold dust.

Ta all :D

Hi Dan,

Having used a the hydraulic Morso underpinner previously before upgrading to the Alfa Macchine 44. I would say the issues to watch out for are:

Foot Pedal, this isnt the strongest of metals, and is prone to bending and tuhus reducing the hammer pressure, if you do buy the machine ensure you get some strengthening plates welded on around the pump connection points.
The hose, this will rub on the hole where it joins to the pump nd it will split and it will leak fluid everywhere ... be warned :D
The V nail delivery will jam up through use, and this will get very annoying having to take it apart again and again but you become a dab hand at it.

other than that is pretty bullet proof, the operation is very simple

Thanks so much for that heads-up, Mark.
