    For some time now my 9000 has been impossible to cycle. From time to time the handle would not go to the top of the up stroke. If u look close in the picture u can see a groove that was cut into the part.

    Put some lube on it now it works fine. LOL

    Take care

    Thats not good. I had to file mine to clean up the angles on the ramp, but mine was not tore up like that. It looks like you're going to need to replace those parts or send your machine back to MEC to have them rebuild it.

    LOL,

    No the parts r easy to replace, just put anti-sieze on it and keep pulling the handle.

    I thought it was the resizer for a long time but it was not.

    Take care,

    Jim

    What part is it? I fail to see which one you're are talking about unless it the shiny one. Is it the part that advances the deck? Jackie B.

    Should have caught that alot sooner. Pretty easy to see but, it's pretty hard to kill a MEC.

    You might look into replacing your carrier actuator cylinder. When that cylinder goes bad, it will jerk the slide bracket and lower cam bracket apart when releasing and rotating the carrier plate. This will cause the groove you see on your lower cam bracket if the problem is not attended to rather quickly. Garrett

    Purchased at Alhman's $35 in a cardboard box in pieces. I got my money out of it. I am going to get it fixed one of these days.

    But my bathroom sink needs repair also and there are birds to be shot, targets to be broken and workkkkkkkkkk.

    Take care you'll

    I would hope you change the title of your post as it is misleading. Better to say, "My MEC [insert model # here] is binding." What was your point anyway??

    FWIW, I called them last week about a broken flat brass spring in an EZ Prime tray I have [250K rounds later, minimum] $1.40 for a new one & I had it in three days through USPS. Shipping & handling was $4, their minimum. You can't beat that for fair service. Times past, they sent me the part first & the invoice second. In today's world, that is not intelligent. I still rate them tops in customer service. BTW, they own themsleves. I dunno if its a union shop or not & honestly don't care, but I have found their product & service to be top notch.

    Just an info post LOL. There is nothing negative, if anything it is a testament to the Mec machine.


    There is no indication of a problem with Mec's customer service.

    Isn't communication easy?

    Take care
