    Since EA is a paid advertiser on here we will see how long this thread lasts.

    Surprised EA hasn't responded - they monitor TBN fairly closely.

    I think they are reasonable people, and it's obvious looking at the pictures that this was a welding issue. The piece was clearly not clamped or held down in the proper position before welding it up.

    Does it affect operation in any way? Can you still get the pin to slide in and out easily?

    'How much will it cost me for you not to see that?' is sometimes the best way. Nobody likes to look at crooked new stuff, but if you're not paying top dollar, and it's not a functional issue, sometimes things are not as perfect as other times. I suppose they could hire more people and jack the prices way up...

    It does bind a bit as you are getting at. The cat1 lower link pin is 7/8". The implement hole is drilled 0.050" overbore, but the wall thickness of the ear is a hefty 3/8" so it takes a bit of persuasion to get the pin installed. Yes, it can be frustrating when it is cold and windy out.

    The ears are about 7.5% narrower on that side which is right at the limit of being able to install the pin without enlarging the mounting holes in the implement, whereas the good side slips right in. It does require me to use a stack of washers instead of a 7/8" x 1/2" shaft collar to space the stock 2" bushing on my 3PH to the width of the mount point. It looks rather stupid.

    My experience with EA on a product purchased was not good. I posted my displeasure online here, albeit perhaps showing my upset too much, and the thread was yanked.
    So how one says things here is very important, and the OP has done a great job showing the facts in pictures and not being unnecessarily critical.
    The EA folks are a lot more "local" than their marketing presence suggest. With all the videos they make, one could expect them all to be wearing smartphones 24/7 and responding to
    issues within hours, not days. But it took me days and days to hear from them. This is fact. The facts speak for themselves. Much of the equipment they sell under their own name is made by others.
    Good local Southern companies, and overall I think they offer good value for the dollar spent. But if you expect EA to provide state of the art service and response time, well, things go more slowly down there.

    The challenge with mail ordering something heavy like implements is you can't send it back easily or cost effectively. So if your plow comes through with a scratch, you get sent a can of spray paint and are told to fix it yourself.
    After all, it's a plow... But if the implement is incorrectly constructed, and welding is always an issue with imported goods, than the original mfg has to make it good, and promptly. And making it good is reimbursing the purchaser for actual costs in getting the item repaired or fixed to original spec, if it can be. If not, a full refund is the only fair solution, and if they want to, the mfg. can pay to ship it back to them on their dime. Shipping eats up all the profit so no one wants to pay for it.

    But c'mon EA, you sold it, you refund the repair money, cheerfully and promptly, get your money back from the mfg., and everyone goes home happy. Stall, deny or not aggressively try to make the customer happy and threads like this will continue to pop up. Most of us at TBN want EA to be successful so no one is throwing rocks, but the only way to improve things is to tell the emperor that his clothes are falling off. A smart emperor will tighten up his belt.

    I was told by the Moderator that business disputes were not to be discussed online here, particularly those with advertisers. That does put a serious crimp on discussion which I don't think any of us are particularly comfortable with.
    So likely this post/thread will disappear in due course. Of course if the post was glowingly positive, I'm sure it would stick around...which ought to be offset by some tolerance of reasonable, honest presentation of facts, even if they don't put the advertiser in the best light. Not a perfect world out there, and we all have to be reasonable, but TBN wants the advertiser to get a chance to resolve things offline first. If that did not work, seems the issue should be fair game from then on out. Our benefit and I suppose protection here is our public voice, not the one that gets deleted with the click of a mouse.

    looks like that was welded on a friday afternoon and its last unit for the day so to speak. even I can tell its not bent but it was not braced right before welding. I would refrain from "welded wrong" but rather say its not braced/clamped/squared up yet before welding. thats all to it.

    perhaps you could go to a local welding shop and get thier opinion and quote to make it right. don't forget cost of paint- you need to repaint it after welding is done so its looks like the way you got it.

    It's not a coffee table, if it attaches and doesn't fall off, it's working.

    Where are you EverythingAttachments. Anytime somebody asks about implements you are usually the first responder. I am also looking for a box blade after first of year and am all set to buy from you. I love the videos and Peanut is a hoot. Issue sounds minor, that doesn't bother me. And an unhappy customer is noisy. What concerns me most is why haven't you posted. In the name of Peanut, answer up.....
