FFC Preparator

Hey guys, I'm looking at purchasing a used Preparator. What parts should I be looking at for excessive wear?

I have had 4 Preparators over the last 15 years. I have replaced one bearing, maybe a chain and thats about it. The teeth on the drum of course will wear, the bottom of the skid shoes will need to be built up. I weld some AR 400 on the bottom of the skid shoes that saves replacing the entire shoe later. These are real tough rock rakes.
