Question: Alligator Lopper
I can't get the cutting bar to sit correctly. It lies tilted against the covers. Is there a part under the cutting bar that I'm missing?
Reply: Alligator Lopper
Just had the same problem with mine. Turns out there's two metal spacers that slide onto the mounting bolts between the lopper and the bar. I had dropped one, so when I went back to assemble it, it went on crooked and into the covers. It's not shown in the diagram above, but I found it listed (but not sold, go figure) at link removed, Part Number 490779-00. It says that it's for the LP1000-B2 Type 1 and LP1000-BR Type 1, but I have no idea how they're different, so I'd just as well assume they're the same. Hope that helps.
Question: Replacement Chain

Review: Black And Decker - LP1000 LP1000
LOVE IT! Got one for my wife 2 years ago, she is 65 and weighs 95 lb. She will cut with it for hours and has worn it out cutting kindling wood. I think she caused a plastic gear to crack because she wants to cut "sticks" larger than 4 inches in diameter.I ordered a new one and I am going to fix the old one for a spare.
