hi,

I have been a brother user for some time.  machines like the    DCP-8155DN     But truly I am unhappy with their current MFC line's ADF.    I find it grabs too many pages at once, and we have the machine in three locations.

so I was wondering what my next step up is.  can any one suggest a MFC  not with a decent ADF   ?

I am not aware of any particular problems with Brother ADFs. Most ADFs are fairly similar. They are not intended to be heavy duty devices and can easily be jammed. They are only intended to be used with smooth plain paper. Heavy paper, or very light paper, can cause jams. So can creases in the paper and other imperfections. One example is staples: if the pages have been stapled, most people remember to remove the staple, but many forget that the sheets are still held together by the little paper "hooks" inside the staple holes. To prevent multiple pages being picked, you need to unhook these, and preferably run your fingernail over the little holes to flatten them.

Unless you are seeing problems with stacks of fresh, ordinary 80 gsm (bond) paper, your problems may be quite normal. There are of course higher performance scanners, such as the Fujitsu range, but they are much more expensive and don't come with a printer attached. Large copiers like the Xerox WorkCentres also have heavier duty scanners, but again the price tag is way above an MFP.

I would start by having a talk with the users to see what kind of documents they are scanning, and take it from there.
