    Hercules

    I was wondering if anybody had these machinces in very high volume situations (around 1 mill/ month). If so how are they performing and how low can you go on click charge and still make money. Thanks

    excellent machines, the busiest one i have is around 400-500 month. stay on top of the pm's and replace feed tires in the lct every visit( even if they look good, they wont be in the next few days) and all will be good

    These are great runners. As stated several times before, on time PM's are a must. You also want to make sure it is installed on a level surface as this can cause finisher problems. I personally love how easy the fuser comes apart. For once, an engineer thought of the technician.

    Re: Hercules

    Hi Guys, I was wondering if I tap into this Hercules knowledge - I was the one who doubted the Hercules's superb ability when our first one was jamming every 10k, due to a slowly overheating reg motor resulting in very irregular jam locations. Well I'm back with another weird jamming problem. Every time we press for copy, the machine begins to feed, then registers a jam. This happens from all trays. Most times paper never leaves tray, but on the odd occasion it gets to first vertical transport roller then registers the jam. When using by-pass, the tray will drop the arm to feed the paper but the roller receives no drive so a jam is registered. LCC feeds the paper as normal and reaches first transport roller within the machine then registers a jam. Jam locations are everywhere! Paper never reaches registration. Any ideas?

    Re: Hercules

    It's an MXM1100 - can this sensor be disabled (reminds me of the Contact Image Sensor or CIS on the Ricoh 1350 where it was advised to disable it). The jam codes range from, LCC, LTD_S, MFT, C3PFD_S3, C1PPD_N, TRAY 2, C2PFD_S2 PPD3_N3. Are these familiar?
