Default URGENT---->Need help with HUDY tire truer

I bought a Hudy Excellent tire truer online but I'm not sure if it's functioning correctly. I'll describe it for you all and hopefully someone can tell me if it's ok or not.

I switched it on and it appears to work fine meaning it goes from left to right and back again. Fine everything is ok with that, but when I try to switch it back to move again to the right from the farmost starting position, it didn't move and the wheel didn't spin. So I clicked the switch back to neutral and then back to move right and it moved.

Q1. Is it normal it to not move right away after completing a full cycle?

During the move right across the tire, when it was a few mm past the tire, I flicked the switch to make it move back to the left and the wheel started stuttering and didn't have the smooth rotation it normally has.

Q2. Is it possible that I switch it too fast in reverse?

Please all answer as much as possible as I only have a few days to return it. Thanks.

motojon - thanks for the answer. I didn't set up the travel length so when it passed the tire i didn't want to wait for it to go all the way to the end so I flipped the switch to reverse it and it started the stutter. I stopped it, started it again and it stuttered again. Once more I did the same and it worked normally.

I'm using this one - Ofna Power Supply 9-14V 18A 110AC - trying to figure out if that is the problem.

Try using the battery on your car, or a larger power supply and see if that solves your problem. I have had stuttering problems when using a power supply that is too small. I would not use a supply that has less than 30 amps.

Scott had it. I was about to reply when I saw this. I used my portable power supply and it worked like a charm. I thought the power supply put out more power but when i checked the specs the light bulb came on. Thanks guys, I can sleep easy now.

At least people know later if someone new has this problem.

ditto.... run it off a 12v car battery for best results. Most power supplies do not supply a steady enough current when the truer experiences a good load when cutting. My generator even gives my Hudy fits when running it off the 12v line because it is only rated at 15a of current.

You can run a truer from a lower amp power supply (like 15)

anyway, slow down the speed of the side to side motion if you are on less than a car battery and you will still get a good cut. The fastest speed puts quite a bit of strain if you're cutting 2-3mm of tire off.
