I was one of the first trained on the product. as a service technician. Stil the old 4000/4500/5400 frame.

One thing I can say about this machine was it had a stapler that that had the power to
staple through a New York City phone book and then some.
The stapler was driven by a 1/4 horse power motor through a Harley Davidson (I kid you not) motor cycle chain and if the screws came loose on the clincher assembly it would bend metal that would make Super Man proud.


anyone remember when the 5600(the final iteration of the series) came out it actually got rid of some of the problems due to it being the first machine with a microprocessor so goodbye cycle switch and RADF and hello digital timing and vacuum driven doc feeders and mag brush dev units all with new problems plus the old ones from the optic assembly bearings and cam ahh the good old days but you know in the factory we could change an A trans quite quickly maybe because we didnt have all the covers and stuff and had production tooling available

Of all the 4000 Family products the Tag 81 5600 was the best. It was the cleanest and most reliable.
