    We just bought this machine and it goes through carbide bullet teeth very quickly, does anyone make diamond tip teeth for this machine. Also, it uses a 8v1400 belt for the drum drive, it is going through one of these a week. The belt pulley has 6 inches of adjustment on it but the belt only allows for two inches of adjustment. A smaller 8v1320 belt is too small, does anyone know of a manufacturer that can supply a belt at say 1360? Finally, I have been trying to get parts and service manuals for this machine, local dealer here is next to useless, Terex won't help so if you know a dealer that likes to do business in country then please advise, thanks.

    What type of teeth are using on this machine?? Are they breaking, shattering tips, throwing carbides or is it just wearing or washing them out? I might have a solution to your problem so send me an email if it is convenient.
