    Good deal?

    Went to a show today and picked up a Dillon FL 2000 Magnum case cleaner. $40

    Good deal?

    Any experience with these?

    Going rate is over $100.

    There is a issue about the motors not being available, but even though it went out of production in 1992,
    there's a work-around for it, and rumor has it that Dillon still honors the life time warranty.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    Dillon does not do the lifetime on the tumblers. Had a small problem and was told that. Unless they changed recently.

    There is no problem so great, that it cannot be solved by the proper application of high explosives.

    Electric/electronics did not have a warranty a few years ago when I owned Dillons, it may have changed now. I owned and used a 2000 tumbler when I shot competition but gave it to a friend when I stopped competing around 1989 in pistol/revolver matches. He is still using it many years later. my .02 anyway, james

    Too bad you didn’t get it with some cases still in it. Then it would have been a good deal.

    Bought my D2000 sometime in the early-1980s...still going strong...and still under warranty as it was purchased before Dillon discontinued covering tumbler motors.
