    :confused: :( I just had a car wreck, actually I got sideswipped by an eighteen wheeler. My truck lost the back bumper and receiver hitch my trailer is gone no hope and my trimmers need to be replaced and my bladerunner landed about 35 feet upside down. I am afraid that my insurance company is really going to frown on this. I think I am going to take the day off and make some phone calls. I quess I will find out about my dealers promise to fix me in 24 hours! From the looks of my mower I do not think it will live again. I quess I will find out. I keep you posted on the repairs and insurance pay off!

    That is terrible news. I hope no one was hurt! Who's fault was it? If it was his fault then you should be able to get any equipment that was totaled replaced. My equipment policy is a replacement policy, not a value policy. That means no matter what happens my equipment gets replaced with new stuff if it's totaled.

    No pictures yet I will try to get some though. I talked to the insurance agent and I am getting the run around I think, the other guy is at fault so I am trying to get replacement on that but I need equipment now not next year. On the upside the BLADERUNNER dealer is comming through for me I called him and told him the situation he has a mower and trailer equipped with trimmers waiting for me to pick up in the morning! If he does this for everyone it is no wonder everyone buys from him! :cool:

    Sorry about your bad luck maybe it will turn out to be good luck! I am a big fan of the bladerunner diesel mowers but if they replace your equipment Bill's has a new 60" 27hp l/q kawasaki that would be a nice replacement for you! If I remember right you had a 60" 25hp gas unit. I would sure look at this unit. I think bill said it was a 2003 production unit!
