Broken or Inoperable Rotor Heads
Upon inspection, a Rotor Head may be found to be broken or inoperable. The most common observations include:
- Broken Head – due to external forces – snow plow, lawn mower, vandalism, accidental damage by human or animal, driving over while operating.
- Bad Seal – due to intrusion of sand or grit, aging/dried-out seal, external forces, such as stepping on or driving over while operating.
- Not Rotating – due to wear and tear, sand or grit, damaged caused by external forces.
Ultimately, the easiest and most cost-effective solution is to replace the head. New rotor heads come with a one year warranty on parts and labor and installation takes about the same amount or less time than repairing a damaged rotor head.
