He probably looks like a coal miner by now with all of that black crud flying off of the buffing wheel!

Hence, that's why I did my polishing outdoors! But that wasn't till we noticed polishing in the kitchen was not a good idea.

In the middle of installing mine...... SO I have the "2.0" kit. They built in a compression spring into the idler unit so you don't have to break down the track. I cheated and just unbolted the motor and pulled some slack into the track. Sadly less them 10 feet on the original motors and all had cold solders. One wire completely broken and just resting on the lead and one has a slice in the casing from being pulled thru the small slots for the wires( something everyone needs to watch out for as they are sharp). At this point 10 feet maybe 5 minutes of hydro run time and ive swapped out the track motors, received a new hydraulic tank as mine has metal threading floating inside, new hydro lines as mine are short and a new radio system...... One day ill get to use it. Good luck all

Hi
Looked into it earlier on in the spring, did conclude that my motors for the 4200XL was not particular suitable for a bolt-on solution for the KAT, so kind of put it away a bit, while searching for a more suitable gear motor. Have gotten hold of some compact high performance gear motors with a suitable rpm just the other day, that I plan hook up with a bevel gear transmission. Guess I'm on to something) I have the KAT machine myself, so will test fit the prototype gear motors on to that one first. Will create a separate thread here as I proceed,

regards
Oyvind

Complete bummer Alaska, I had to battle my 4200 as well to get up and running. Sounds like your near the dirt though. Hope you get things settled up and get your tracks dirty soon!
