Any guess on a fair price??
« on: July 10, 2019, 09:50:18 AM »
Hey all.

I found a 299D close enough to go fetch that is being auctioned for parts. It's a 2012 with like 400 hours or so. It caught fire so the engine and anything remotely flammable is gone, but I was thinking u/c, sprockets, guards, idlers, rear door, front mounting plate, etc... it might be worth getting. Best part is that it has a Cat heavy duty grapple on it that was not damaged. I have one of those now and they are really great.

Any clue what a fair price would be for something like this? I am clueless.

do you need parts for a 299d, or will you be selling them off.  I would start with the price of the grapple.  I think some of the parts you mentioned may be tempered and poss. damaged as well by the fire.  It is of course worth what ever someone will pay for it.  To rebuild it, with the cost of CAT parts would be out of the question.  good luck.

I have a 299 and thought it could be good for cheap parts for when mine needs new sprockets or I cave in a back door in the woods.  :D

I would say it's worth it's value in scrap metal, the grapple is a bonus for having to cut it all apart.

if no one else is bidding, you may get it cheap.  might calculate scrap price.  there will aluminum on engine but it would have to be separated to get most money.  if you get it for 200 bucks, great.  if it gets into the thousands, i would move away.  as @Southside  mentioned, there will be some work on your part to even scrap it.

$2000ish.  You pay retail for the grapple and get the spares for free.

Looks like it burned pretty hot.  I'd be leery of what the heat did to the metal parts.

I wouldnt plan on using any of the parts from it for anything with as hot as that got. So bid on the grapple, the rest is just scrap metal that will require some work to cut apart.

I've been in the salvage car parts business for several years, and for the most part when a car burns it gets mashed and sent on.  Maybe the rear axle or bumper is salvageable but thats about it.  Its possible a sprocket or two is useable from that machine, but I wouldnt figure on it.  As others mentioned, buy the grapple if you want it, and figure the rest is useless.  And burnt stuff is nasty to mess with, soot and rust abound.

Quick Google search showed a burnt out 299d for $1350, no bucket...it still had the tracks on it, looked like less damage than the one your looking at.

I keep one on my tractor ( which is only feet away from the processor), none in my truck... If that thing catches, I'm grabbing my good flashlight out of it, my quarters for toll money and waiting on the check from the insurance company :D

Keep the belly pans and engine bays free of woody debris/vegetation.  If a machine does burn down the 1st thing your insurance company will do is analyze an ash sample looking for a way to blame the fire on a lack of maintenance by the operator whether that was the cause or not.

Fire extinguisher are great but the suspension systems are the way to go.

Anything over a certain dollar value I think it's the way to go to keep your premiums down. I've got one in my delimber but its 10yrs past for service 😂 
I got a quote 3yrs ago at the log show from a suppression company, gave the paperwork to the company who installed my system at the store for the hood and they where 1/2 the cost.
