Just asking a bit to see if anyone has one kicking around they are not using. My youngest son (the MF
-8 owner) clipped a tree and snapped the main cast iron beam in half. It looks like it will be in the $40 range to get it welded, and he is left with a welded axle. The rule is, that if you break it doing something you shouldn't be doing, you pay to fix it... He was not supposed to be in the woods with it, and that is where he hit the tree. So, he was told that he needs to come up with the cost to repair or replace it. If anyone has one that could show up here shipped and be under the $40, I am sure he would be a happy camper.
