Dough Rounder

Greetings All, I recently purchased a BakeMax BMDBR01 Dough Rounder (also known as a GRANOMAQ BDM 300), and am having difficulty getting the machine to produce decent dough balls for hamburger buns. If anyone has one of these machines, I would appreciate some advice on it so that I can figure out where I am going wrong. I have tried varying moisture content of the dough, greasing the plate etc but no luck so far. Possibly I am expecting too perfect a dough ball??

Thanks

I don't own one but...it does not look like you have many options for adjustments such as speed of the machine or length of time to round the dough.

Looking at that machine I would suggest adjusting your dough ball weight.  That machine works off true volume of the dough and friction.  

I don't know what increments the head plates come in but the first thing I would try is to increase and decrease the dough input by small increments until you find a weight that the machine likes to ball.

To much or to little dough in the trough will have negative effect.

But just guessing here
