    "A lot of metal" as in filings or chunks? Filings are normal over that length of time and the magnet is doing its job keeping them out of the hydraulic system. I am assuming that you logged 1,000 to 2,000 hours over this period.

    The filings are probably coming from normal wear of the work you are doing plus from the initial break-in of the gears. Magnetic plugs are used for this reason.
