This machine was originally purchased by the US Navy for use in Hawaii. It was barely used if used at all and then mothballed. Newman said they never did an installation on this machine. When Hermance bought this machine there were a few missing parts including the grinding attachment and several covers. Hermance went through the machine thoroughly and replaced parts needed to make certain everything was to spec. Hermance also installed two of our Helixheads in this machine rather than replacing the grinding attachment.
