One of the reasons I picked a Ribcraft over anything else was their awesome reputation of strength and build quality.

Not many can say the same.
To answer the question re the drum it is part of a resin fed roller system for wetting out the combination snd chop strand mat used in the prodution process. No choppers in Yeovil!!
As most in the know understand choppers are the anti christ!

All the best
