Mechanical Relialibility – Items To Check

While a complete and certified evaluation of the machine and its condition relative to Diehl standards can only be confirmed by Diehl personnel, the following is a list of machine characteristics that tend to reveal its operating condition:

  1. Inner saw collar wear, run-out and endplay
  2. Chain surface wear, chain parallelism/surface wear and chain lubrication
  3. Spindle, spindle housing and bearings
  4. Pressure roll assembly
  5. Feed drive assembly
  6. Stock guide and mounting rail
