You could well be right there. I have no idea what the guts of this axle will look like. When told the diagnosis I had to go and look at the axle as I could not imagine it to be true

Still hanging in there DH. I didnt realise these machines had such a bad history. I played a bit on one many years ago and quite liked it but didnt have to maintain or service it
Had the joy of loading an artic on Thursday using a Manitou, cant say I felt comfortable, the levers just seem all over the place.

Not that big of a job if its the same as the manitou i did a few months back! Yea drop the axle out and split the casing at both sides of the diff housing! seals are most likely just o-rings!
fluid im guessing should be LHM but i would check that with cat!

Just like a Tractor. Not a big deal, just the usual care when installing. Most brake systems like this can be pressure checked before the axle is refitted. Was a simple problem. I must admit i didn't think of the brake issue.

Thanks for the comments and replys guys.

I am not likely to be asked and definetely wont be offering to do the repair .
Educational though from my point of view as I have not encountered this set up before. Heard it mentioned lots of times just never engaged the brain as to what it actually meant

I believe the off the cuff quote was about 2k to do the job. I cant make a fair comment as the only axle I ever split was on the duck when we changed the centre housing. That took me and the fitter best part of 3/4 of a day, and no parts cost.

If its only O rings I would say its expensive, but for an off the cuff quote I suppose allowance has to be made that it could be worse than O rings.

And I do believe there was a comment about it being pressure tested afterwards. Thanks.

That's sadly the case with many brands these days. Its wrong to skimp on the metalwork. People aren't stupid. Next buy could well be a different brand.
