I guess I shouldn't really complain as it's been logging many a mile this past few months with no relief in sight.
I treat it like any other tool in the shed or tool box and thus it's subject to some hard use with only basic care. ..tough love as it were.
But I'm no stranger to field repairs. And fixing parts on-the-fly goes hand in hand with this type of work..
But parts do wear quickly and continue to age regardless of how well looked after...just like people.
Just something else I have to consider replacing as time moves on.
