We have broken the center fillers several times and once twisted one of the moldboard mounts out of shape, when it hit a huge stone.  We also use it to apply Biotelo biodegradeable plastic mulch while making beds.  It is a well built, simple, reliable, machine.  If you are farming stony ground, learn to weld and use a torch.  You will break equipment.
