    Actually, my best advice should have been to simply call Butler and speak to a service tech.

    They have the answers and they are free. Butler has NEVER given me incorrect solutions. After a while you just want it fixed!

    I did call them and they said the tachometer might be faulty which might explain the irratic Rpms on the gauge with no change in sound from the machine...and the belts seem pretty loose so I'm guessing that could cause some vibration...its really not crazy shaky but just not what I'm used to seeing :headscratch: I've gotten through tons of problems ok this year so I have faith I can get through this one

    Andrew,
    If you call Butler, ask for Greg Steve. He helped me adjust RPM's on a newer Butler with the new electronic speed control. It's a factory adjustment but not that hard to do. You'll need a tiny screwdriver and a flashlight but you may be able to adjust RPM's down to the proper setting this way.

    Wow really? I had no idea that was possible because Louis from Butler told me they can't be adjusted

    Is that the small black knob on the tach itself that you can twist with a flat head screwdriver?

    I think I'll wait on the new belts before I try adjusting anything

    MB has more experienced Butler users than any FB group or other forum.

    My butler was acting funny, the pressure would build then drop over and over and then a line started leaking real bad. Replaced that line and all is good again.

    But while saiger's chems are made by Harvard Chem. I do believe Rob's is made by Fabpro. I could be mistaken
