Good until the shaft broke...

"The unit works great. We anchored it to the ground as soon as we unpacked it, and have tumbled hundreds of parts over the last 3 months.
It appears that there is a stress riser where the pulley set screw contacts the main shaft though and after a few months operation, the shaft broke.
We don't run this unit constantly, only on occasion. Probably average an hour per day.
The good news is it was still under warranty. They don't have the replacement main shaft assembly in stock but the manufacturer had me text them a couple of photos of the broken part so they can either get one expedited or replace the whole unit.
I anticipate that they will get it to me right away. I will update the review if it is other than what they have said.
That said, the unit operates nicely when it runs and the timer is convenient as well."
