    Hey, everyone.
    A buddy of mine is looking to buy an MD75, and the guy that ownes it now says that he had to replace the lifting piston because it had froze. Is this an issue, or not?
    HOpe to hear from anyone soon Thanks.

    Hello, I never had a problem. I also haven't had it for long either! Could he had left it uncovered outside? I know it is a dumb question, but thought it might help!

    one of my subs has a md75, and he was told by his dealer to lightly tap it into a fixed object and it will get unstuck. I had seen this happen to him on at least two occasions last season.
