I have one and use it about once a week for the last 10 years. I've even left it on overnight and let it run all weekend a few times. I've ran anywhere from 100 rounds of pistol brass to as much as I can get in there and still have room for media. It keeps right on going. Just don't tumble 9mm, 40, and 45 along with the 45/70, they don't play nice together. I was not paying attention once and broke a decapping pin trying to size 45/70 brass. It took a minute to figure it out (yeah I'm slow) but the 40 & 9 like to play hide and seek.
