I owned a Drott 50D for years and everything was still avalible from Case at the time I sold it.One major problem with the Drotts was the pillow block bearings on each side of the drive sprocket.The inner one was around $1500 and the outer one around $900 the last time I bought them.Most of the time they wreck the sprocket shaft when they go out and it was around $2000.One other real weak point was the turntable bearing.If it has any play in it the drive gear teeth for the swing will usually have some broken teeth.There is a little inspection cover close to the swing box that can be removed so you can see the teeth while someone swings it real slow.My old Drott was a big strong gorilla but it was slow as all get out.Mine was a 50000lb machine and I sold it to buy a newer 490E Deere which is a 28000lb machine.Even though the Deere is a lot smaller it will run rings around the Drott all day long.
