Hi all,

 

Recently I've noticed some noise from my Zephyr arm while operating rigs in the top of the Zephyr's weight range. Can't tell if the sound comes from the springs or other parts of the arm. Anyone of you having the same experience? Any thoughts?

 

Happy new year.

 

Jacob

What does the noise sound like? Squeak? Grind?

Probably a squeak, right? I get it too sometimes.

Yes, it's squeaking... Any way to avoid this?

I've had the same issue. Mine was coming from the base of the gimbal handle and where it meets the arm. Most often in the cold. I used a touch of lubricate. Helps.

A small spray of acf-50 around the arm's joints should do the trick.
