Crunch


see what happens when a city dump truck is backing up, not checking his right hand rear view mirror? he's got his ipod/earphones on, can't hear the loader or the excavator horn honking at him? guess what that fender alone...no brackets, no paint, no labor costs...and no calling a JD dealer parts department and cheating.

Well, I based it off of Eastern PA equipment repair and/or replacement.

Obviously, if the question was worded in a way as to what it would cost in your neck of the woods, my guess would have been $1318.

Re: Crunch


For $1,318 I would have given the guy a bucket corner to run into rather than the fender!!!! Probably wasn't a scratch on the dump truck I imagine.......................time to scrap the loader and make some real cash piece by piece

Tell them they should paint the whole loader so the paint matches.
