I hope that's an outlier...Well it would appear that ~180 hrs is all you can get out of the DWP611 brushes. Old on r left new on the right.
Poking around a bit, I found the parts list/ordering for the DW611:
It looks like the brush is #59 (Part number A27343), that there's just one of them, and it goes for US$4.97
Is it correct that there is only one needed? Also, how hard is it to check visually, extract and replace?
Has anyone else worn one out? Would this be a good thing to have a replacement on hand? Are there any other parts to have as spares which are likely to wear out in weeks/months/a year or so?
Is there any preventative maintenance that can/should be done, such as oiling anything and/or checking certain components on a schedule?
