just curious if anybody out there is running some old Ransomes equipment and running into problems w/ parts. RANSOMES was bought out a few years back by Jacobsen and now getting parts is a bear. Yeh you can get them but you get raped in the process. My local dealer cannot even beleive the pricing of these parts. Just got a quote for a new rear axle and spindles- 1,400 for the parts. Drive shaft went out a few years ago- Ransomes part was $500- my dealer got it rebuilt for $80. This stinks because my machine is solid -built like a tank and has a diesel enginew/ alot of life left in it. Any feedback appreciated.
