Luckily no sparks or smoke so far, just not much time at the moment to do the adjustments and mount the 80mm motor bracket instead of the 43 mm one. I would like to thank everyone here for their input and help. I must say that the Hitachi manual is not very inspiring for a beginner like me.




That's one reason why I chose the Bosch Rexroth EFC 5610... excellent documentation, easy to start up just by changing a few parameters. So far, of all the over 400 pages I found only one error in it, which isn't exactly an error in the documentation, more like they forgot to describe a function which they make reference to. Anyway, I am very happy with it. OK, "inspiring" is the wrong word, but I am very much used to reading manuals, so I am happier with 500 readable pages than 16 difficult to understand ones. Being an engineer with 40 years of experience helps of course...
