    Was on here last week asking about changing the collett on my 761R Grabber. Got the collett installed but now the machine wont work. I can't even describe what it is doing. Is there anyone in the Peoria/Galesburg, Illinois area who repairs MEC Grabbers or do I send it to the factory? Thanks again

    I have a Grabber just like yours, so maybe I can help. What exactly is it doing or not doing? JM

    I wish I could describe it. When I pull down on the handle, it stops halfway because the sleeve that compresses the collett jams on the lever that moves the sleeve and freezes the machine. If I slide the sleeve up by hand the lever works and the handle goes all the way down.

    Thanks guys. I am just going to send it to the factory. It needs a tuneup anyway after 25 years. Appreciate all the help. This is a fantastic community.
