There is an adjustment you can do that will keep the mandrel shaft from dropping so far that it has to be picked up to close the end gate.
It has to do with how the mandrel is positioned left-to-right and the position of the drive gear to the left of the support.


We would appreciate any information on these adjustments, including photos.

I'll take some photos this evening and post them up. All my Standards are B's, but can't imagine it not working on an A.

here is a video I made on how to adjust the mandrel so it does not drop too far when you open the end gate:

(Double-click the video above or click this link to go to the video on YouTube.)


I hope this helps out anyone who has had this problem.
