    I've got a BD300 and its been really good over the last few years
    I'm doing a bit of maintenance work to it at the moment.
    The motor and gearbox that turns the drum need replacing and the seals for the HP pump need replacing.
    Mine is the first generation drum but are much improved now

    How long have you had your drum Andy?
    Did the motor/gearbox just pack up or are they just showing signs of failing.
    Are you having to carry out repairs yourself or have you managed to get help from the manufacturer?

    I guess all of us with drums are in for a shock one day.
    We get so used to having nothing to do, it will come as a big surprise when our drums start to wear out.
