    KM Feed rollers

    Hi All,

    Is there anyone using an alternative feed/separate roller the common red one used in most KM devices?

    Thank you.

    I cant see need for looking replacement when OEM work just fine and not expensive.
    Just to mention, i notice old machines (420,501...) paper feed rollers lasts much longer then on newer series.

    WE use rollers that we fit to the existing shafts, we remove old rubber and fit these, part no A00J563600, that we buy from a supplies company, they last about 200K, and can be fitted in either direction.

    I second that, but the world is wide people are different
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    OEM only. Yes old ones last twice longer but are twice expensive.
    Use the one you prefer, they are compatible!

    Yup, i know they are compatible but new roller type is ok with life about 100k without problems for about $3-4 for piece.
    Rollers price is so meaningless in cost calculation compare to everything else much expensive (toner,drum,belt,fusing...) and i cant understand why somebody using compatible rollers anyway.
    When i said this above i refer to A3 mfps and production series but for A4 mfps is other storie.
    I dont have much expirience with new A4 mfps but recently i ask about price for ADF pick up rollers bizhub 4050,4020... and shocked when get price from KM about $120.
    This rollers have twice price of imaging unit for example,not real.
    After that even more hate that small pieces of crap mfps.
    For this series i would buy compatible rollers if somebody have infos because this "official" price is insane?

    You might look at the Lexmark OEM parts. They ARE for the most part Lexmark rebadges, and the only difference is black, not gray rubber.
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Exactly the OEM do 200K and over if you’re on a budget only replace the feed & fit the old feed roller to the sep.
