    Been looking for a skid for some time but decide to rent rather than purchase till.more work becomes available... I may have ran into a deal.... its an 08 s250 that caught on fire... machine looks good not only.above engine looks.burnt... seller said it burnt the wiring up... he's sending.more pics of cab to.me.now.but whats a project like this entail. How hard of a job is it? I'm mechanically inclined but I do admit.I hate wiring.... is this even feasible... he's asking $4k obo. Good buy or pass on it? Thanks

    Meet with the seller and light it back on fire and finish the job.

    Depending on the size of the fire, it could have weaken the machine everywhere. Would turn away, way to many headaches will arise. Would buy the bucket, attachments etc and call it a day.

    No I've never torn one apart nor inspected the wires closely....

    Maybe ask the dealer if there is a complete wiring harness available, if not PM Bobcat Ron for a more in depth response :canadaflag:
