After every switch over we observed some abnormal metallic sound coming from the Drum which is taken on line. That too from. 7 to 8 m height from the BUD. Kindly suggest me why this sound is coming and wat could be done to avoid such sounds. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
