We have a 560 coming in this Monday and I would like to tuck a grounding rod under the machine before the machine is lifted in place. This means drilling before the machine arrives.
Does any one have a photo of where they installed their grounding rod?
I went through all that work and in the end didn't use it. The building ground was a better ground than that 8' thing I painstakingly pounded into the earth. If your building is reasonable well-wired, should be the same situation.
Trusting the buildings ground gave me fits at the last building we moved into, machine gave fits until we improved the ground for some reason i'll never understand. Similar situation- new building, the dealer recommended a ground but did not give an absolute spot for a ground
We added a ground rod just in from the left rear corner (operators viewpoint) 10" in from the left side and 35" in from the rear of the machine. It landed between both the leveling feet so the installation tech was happy.
