No problem replacing the spring steel tab that actuates the switch for the compactor. My concern it is a poor design and will have to be replaced on a regular basis. Where the spring steel tab is attached to the toe pedal the spring is bent at a 90 degree angle and this is where it broke..high stress area, constantly being worked at this juncture. Expensive little part!!
