My left wheel seams to have sand in the gear box now and won’t turn. I need a replacement part or assembly for a R7065 Powerbot LH wheel gear box, which is very similar to the R7070. As far as I can see (I have one of each) the R7065 has two rubber beaters and two brush beaters where as the R7070 has 4 rubber beaters.
