    Hi guys,

    I would love to get two more 8611lp's. Please let me know if you are thinking of getting rid of one or more!

    I would be willing to travel fairly far. Or pay you to meet half way.

    Please let me know.

    Take care,

    Jon

    I doubt parts will be an issue yet. Maybe in a few years, but they make damn good money on parts up here, and I doubt they would mess with that. They are many many old style out there vs. few new.

    Not only that the moldboard and wings are still exactly the same.

    Motors and pumps you can get elsewhere. I would imagine the coils can be purchased elsewhere too. You just have to know who made them!

    we once bought a bag of bolts for the rangers blade... over $200 because of the special bolts... Blizzard knows how to charge.

    Part-wise ... I tend to do wings and rams. No pumps here, service service, service. Hoses here and there but wings for sure.

    Jon-you really need to find another supplier. I'm sure Brofasco, or Fastenall or somewhere like that could get you the same bolts for much less. Try Creighton for cutting edges-you would be suprised.

    Few examples (from last week)-Zero turn caster wheel, just the tire and rim-You know whos price: $550.00 a piece, You dont know whos price:$135.00.

    Specialty retainer pin thingamajig for wide are mower-You know whos price:$27.00, You dont know whos price:$2.50.

    I dont know how they can possibly justify their pricing-but someone keeps buying.

    Good times.

    we tried brofasco, but these bolts on the 680lt are custom. The 810 and 8611 are fairly standard, but these bolts are only for the smaller blades. We could have ordered them from the states, just looking into that now for future stuff. Being the distributor and seller makes them a little too powerful.

    I found a place fairly close by that sells all of the hydraulic parts, motors, coils, etc. ;)

    Ask around at a few machine shops maybe they are able to replicate them for you cheaper.

    hopefully will not need them again. Not sure if we will get any new rangers in the future. I did just get another 680lt though, thought $1500 was a good deal for it, but it does need some work. We had the 720lt go down a few times last year, so I figured this would save us some stress.
