Chippers again TW and Jensen issues

I am looking to spend 7200 on a 6" chipper i have used Jensen and they are easy to use and work on, i have seen a few good looking Timberwolfs but i have read a few threads about the bearings and they need replacing after 600 hours, i was realy wandering the price for this is it easy to do and where can you get the bits?

Thoughts???
