Milton-cat first wanted $10,500.00 to fix it. Ok I said. And spent more $$$ sent it down to them. Then I got a call when they had it apart. $35,000.00 to fix it. 
I ask will I get a 5 or 6000 hrs out of it after. 
No, they said. We only back our work till it backs out the door. When the thing gets outside your on your own.[ not what they said but what they ment]
How about a trade for a newer one? No, they did not want it.  Only wanted to sell me a $100,000.00 one. see they only keep their stuff for  4 or 5 years then goes to an auction.
If you spend a lot of $$$$ with them your ok. If not they won't give you the time of day. I think it was a repo. When I called looking for one the salesman called and we went to a job-site to look at it. 

I had them pick it up bring it there shop and do a full serves on it . 
$$$$ more called me and said your good to go. [big lie.]
 I will never deal with them again. And I tell EVERYONE If you want to keep your $$$  and get a good machine to stay away from Milton-cat
