Air Cub

Post by rveldman » Thu Jul 28, 2005 11:48 am

What improvements have been done to the Air Cub since it was moved to IL?
I have an Air Cub w/dual brooms and have had both tilt actuators fail and both extend cylinder shafts break in half.

Mine was from IL. and havn't had those problems yet.
I beleave electrical problems have been my worst, bad ground on the sweeper motor, bad throudle acuator on the sweeper motor, burnt out resistor in the control concel, bad high preasure switch on the water pump, and the worst was the main (+) lead from batterie to the sweeper motor chafed ware it went through the frame because there was no protection on it causing a major ***FIRE*** of which my sales rep didn't seem to be concerned about.
I have also had a radeator mount brake from viberation, 2 ea. preasure gages fail on the hydrolic system. all in less then 475 hours on the machine.

Parden my spelling but there is no spell check and I have never been a great speller.
