Upgrade an older model 760 (pre 2004) to one that incorporates the latest belt guarding and pinch point protection and get the following advantages!

 ·         Deeper horizontal throat clearance to better address hard to reach areas

·         Greater vertical throat clearance to better address odd shaped parts

·         Improved contact wheel side access to better address odd shaped parts

·         Improved dust management to optimize vacuum dust extraction

·         Improved guard door latching by elimination of the old stud-spring arrangement

·         Improved nylon belt performance that eliminates the rear spring "catch issue"

·         Improved belt clearance that minimizes or eliminates the "ticking" issue with nylon belts

·         Improved adaptability provided by an enlarged, flattened front guard face

·         Contact wheel pinch point protection even with the platen assembly removed

·         Full width contact wheel guarding

·         Belt path guarding that takes "broken belt", pinch point, hand insertion, and debris ejection operator protection to even safer levels!

·         Belt path guard ready to accept front face shield.

Call your local dealer or Burr King Manufacturing and request part #798

- which includes the following

·         742-1 safety guard assembly

·         703-3 contact wheel guard

·         704-1 platen assembly

·         705-1 work rest support arm

·         706-1 work rest

Adding only the 742-1 safety guard assembly does not provide sufficient protection from pinch points, and other rotational hazards.  The owner of the equipment is urged to purchase the complete kit for compliance.
