    That's not a bad combo if a guy gets rid of the heel rack or adds 3k in counterweight.

    Are you telling us you tried to fix one- and recommended that it just go to auction instead? Or are you trying to drum up a little more work? I can start looking at ritchie bros a little closer if you're needing some projects....

    We have a Cat 324Dfm with a Pierce 3348. It was a great machine. We are running Waratah & Southstar now though.
