  • Z axis counter balance

    Could someone supply me with a picture of the regulator for the Z axis counter balance for a B&S Excel 9 15 9? Is it located on the X axis?

    Kp61dude! - Locate a knob on the right side towards the back of the X axis rail/beam. Hold the Z with your hand and turn that knob about a 1/4 turn or until you hear a 'click'. That knob adjusts the Z counterweight so try to adjust it back as best as you can after turning it.

        Be carefull, KIRBSTER269 is talking about a Global, not an Excel...
        I can't remember where it was on a Chameleon, but I would say it was at the bottom of the Z axis...

          yeah, I don't see a knob anywhere on X axis on our Excel. I do see it on our Global now though, so that's good to know.

            Sorry, Just passing info from prior problems people have talked before. I don't have an excel. Thought maybe the info might help but I guess it didn't.

          You have to remove the right cover for that machine. Cover located on the right (when standing in front and facing the CMM) on the X Rail/Beam.
