Exchange forces on the movable dot ("shuttle") in a magnetic shuttle device depend on the parity of the number of shuttling electrons. The performance of such a device can therefore be tuned by changing the strength U of Coulomb correlations to block or unblock parity fluctuations. We show that by increasing U the spintromechanics of the device crosses over, at U = U-c(T), from a mechanically stable regime to a regime of spin-induced shuttle instabilities (neglecting electric forces). This is due to enhanced spin-dependent mechanical forces as parity fluctuations are reduced by a Coulomb blockade of tunneling and demonstrates that single-electron manipulation of single-spin controlled nanomechanics is possible.
