I barely had it for about 2 years and you could hear the destruction going on in the bearing rocker.
Actually, the problem with this was that DW's bearing supplier shipped them a box of lemons. Those defective bearings failed quickly.
They corrected the problem, and if you phone them up, they'll probably send you a replacement bearing for free.
I had one of these in one of my DW's and it got grindy and adding lube did not help much.
