Read in this newsletter about our Hercules mixer and spare parts for the S35a/SO40a.

New Hercules doorlock
The design of the new Hercules door lock is based on the solid GA450 door lock.
As from 1 May all Hercules machines (serial number 928526) will be equipped with this new door lock, which makes incorrect use less likely.

The new doorlock is retroffitable and available as a spare part, number:1817406-SP.
This spare part also includes a manual which describes how to mount the lock onto the machine.
