Evening all,

I’ve just picked up an HC260(k) which looks pretty much brand new. The fuse was blown but that was an easy fix. I’m after views on how noisy I should expect it to be when running but before feeding any wood.
It seems to have a bit of vibration but I don’t know if it’s something that I should be stripping down and retightening everything in sight or whether that’s just the nature of them.
Any views?

It should be fairly quiet and have a moderate hummm before introducing timber to be cut - It's an induction motor - I sold loads of them - pretty hard to describe how noisy something should be by just typing - imagine a lawnmower going from 15.6 metres away maybe if that helps? ;)

Ha, thanks.
I think I’ll give it a once over and make sure everything is tightened up. I can hear the hum but there’s also a bit of vibration.

I think mine of 15 years has a bit more than a “hum” but the dust extractor is noisier if that helps.
