Premium Caster Upgrade - Peddles hit caster

#267297 by Jwdaniel » Tue Feb 11, 2020 3:08 pm

I have put the new premium caster upgrade on my 510 model (30 years old but works like day 1). The problem is that the peddles to raise and lower the machine so that it is stationery or mobile HIT THE TOP OF THE NEW CASTERS and won’t function properly. WHO CAN tell me a work around, fix or whatever. Is this just me or is this a common issue>

You likely have an older version of the casters where the foot pedals are more toward the end than the newer version. Solution is to move the pedal inward.(requires drilling new holes properly oriented so as to match the original holes/pedal orientation)
