I liked the new one much better, it has aluminum case. The original was plastic. It was easy install. Good luck

You are referring to the gearbox. This is about the gears. Yes, my original one was plastic and the new one I purchased from etrailer is aluminum that seemed better. If I had swapped out for the new already, I would have shipped my old components to him.

Yes this isn't about the gear box mine is fine I have broken teeth on the bevel gears.. So I'm hoping the ones I ordered will work. I let you know how I come out.

The top gear I was able to make work. The bottom gear no such luck. The through hole diameter was to small. I couldn't find a replacement gear for that one. The new ones I had purchased I thought about having that hole burned bigger on an edm machine at a local tool and die shop. That added expense that was costly. I also considered new landing legs but didn't know which "capacity" to purchase. Everyone wanted to know what I had and I couldn't find markings to tell. Then I decided on purchasing the Bulldog dual motor legs (10,000 lbs.)

Carbide bit (masonry) and a slow drill motor with coolant.

Doubt that the gears are that hard that you would have to EDM. Jig grind or mill would make easy work of it. A masonry bit wouldn't work, no cutting edge. If a person could take the proper measurements, pretty sure you could find a replacement. I've done it multiple times and replaced them with quality parts. If they're made in Dayton, I have a pretty good idea who makes the gears.

All the ones I've seen and used (family is in concrete business and I'm in tool & die) have carbide inserts, but won't cut through a piece of pine. They're made for hammerdrills.
