6.7ferd Awesome. Glad to hear the insurance sounds like they're going to help. Time to start shopping now.

Ebay is where I usually start. But if insurance is gonna kick in, call a dealer for the best quality. Sorry to hear about the fire. That isnít something any of us want to deal with.

Insurance adjuster is cool, looks like I'm in good shape. If I fix the Tak myself they'll pay me $22 hr, plus I'll get that for the cleanup work too. They're cutting a check right away for the side by side and Jack's 4 wheeler. Told me to go ahead with fixing the building, then inventory everything as I fill the dumpster.

Looking at the water damage when they left I think they all emptied their trucks, just for good measure.

(joke) So happy and thankful for all the local volunteer firefighters



Hey Bill, do you know anyplace to buy Takeuchi parts? gonna need the dash on the right, seat, right joystick and some hoses. Maybe the right track too

Not yet. If you guys haven't figured it out yet. I get started on something,then sidetracked doing something else. Lol. I go back to work today so I'll probably get something tomorrow.

Well I think I can speak for all of us that we're glad you're ok and it didn't spread any more than it did.
