Our Flexo has 8 years and about 2400 hours on it. No noticeable changes in performance or vibration. Just examined it whilst slipped and it is still in excellent condition... no play in the blades, gears still tight, and when freshly lubed the blades fall open from their own weight. A great bit of kit!
