R48 purchased just over 3 years ago. has motor with yellow pastic shroud not the black motor.
Was running fine yesterday when it started making a growling sort of noise and tripped breakers. the motor would run but make that sound and after 20 secnds or so the breaker would trip.

so i had to pack up my 3 year old machine and go get my 1986 dart 175 to finish the job.

what could the trouble be with the Cimex?

bearings probably, tip up the head and spin a 8" head. if it grinds it needs the small bearings. then spin the whole 19" head and listen for grinding. bearings are cheap from a local bearing shop.
