WHEN MAKING INQUIRIES PLEASE INCLUDE THE ITEM NUMBER AND AS MUCH DETAIL ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT AS POSSIBLE.  YOU SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER, LOCATION AND GMT TIME.  WE CAN  OFTEN CLARIFY MUCH DETAIL FASTER ON THE PHONE.  WE CAN OFTEN GIVE YOU AN ESTIMATE OF AVERAGE SHIPPING IF YOU WILL INCLUDE AT LEAST CITY AND ZIP CODE IN THE U.S. OR FOREIGN MAIL CODE.  WE ARE IN GMT -0600 AND CAN BE REACHED BEST BETWEEN 0700 AND 2300 -0600 GMT (GREENWICH MEAN TIME). 

FOR ALL ITEMS OR PARTS THAT YOU WANT THAT ARE NOT ON THE WEBSITE INCLUDE PHOTOS.  HERE IS SOMETHING WE HAVE LEARNED THAT WILL SAVE ALL OF US TIME.   IN THIS DAY AND AGE PHOTO INFORMATION IS ABOUT 10 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS TEXT AND ABOUT 5 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS VOICE COMMUNICATION.  PHOTOS ARE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE.  SEND PHOTOS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.  IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE NUMBERS SEND PHOTOS AND A TEXT DESCRIPTION WITH DIMENSIONS THE BEST THAT YOU CAN.  WE HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE ON SOME MACHINES THAT DATA PLATES, IDENTITY TAGS AND NUMBERS ARE LOST OR CANNOT BE READ.  WHEN YOU SEND PHOTOS WE CAN EMAIL THEM TO OUR NETWORK AND MANY MORE PEOPLE TAKE AN INTEREST AND FIND IT MUCH EASIER TO UNDERSTAND AND FORWARD TO OTHERS IN ATTEMPTS TO FIND PARTS FOR YOU.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

AN ASTERISK (ALSO KNOWN AS "STAR") " * " MEANS THAT WE SEE THAT THERE IS IMPORTANT AND HELPFUL DETAIL MISSING OR THE ACCURACY IS IN QUESTION.  IN MOST CASES WE ARE TRYING TO CLARIFY AND CONFIRM OBJECTIVE DETAILS AND WILL UPDATE AS WE GET MORE INFORMATION.

WE HAVE CHECKED, PERSONALLY USE AND RECOMMEND THE PRODUCTS IN THESE LINKS. 

USEFUL INFORMATION: 

LIMITED WARRANTIES AND GUARANTIES:  ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS WHERE IS.   IT IS NOT PRACTICAL TO SHIP MOST ITEMS ESPECIALLY MACHINERY ITEMS GREAT DISTANCES EVEN BETWEEN STATES AND ESPECIALLY  BETWEEN COUNTRIES BUT THESE STATEMENTS SHOW THAT THE ITEMS ARE BETTER QUALITY AND WILL PROBABLY BE REASONABLY TROUBLE FREE WHEN PROPERLY MAINTAINED.  

EVEN IF WE BUY A CAR IN THE U.S. IT HAS TO BE DELIVERED BACK TO THE DEALER OR AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDER WHERE A DETERMINATION CAN BE MADE THAT A  PROBLEM IS DUE TO A DEFECT IN MATERIALS OR WORKMANSHIP AND IS NOT DUE TO LACK OF PROPER OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE.   ITEMS USED FOR COMMERCIAL BUSINESS ARE SELDOM WARRANTED TO THE SAME STANDARD AND ARE, IN FACT,  USUALLY EXCLUDED FROM WARRANTY.   VERY FEW ITEMS HAVE A NATIONAL AUTHORIZED SERVICE NETWORK THAT IS PRACTICAL WHEN WE CONSIDER OUR "DOWN TIME" AND EVEN FEWER HAVE INTERNATIONAL NETWORKS.   OUR BEST GUARANTEE IS TO PROPERLY OPERATE AND MAINTAIN WHAT WE BUY AND IT WILL BE CHEAPER OVER TIME AND IN MOST CASES MUCH OF OUR PROFIT MARGIN.  

MOTIVATED RESPONSIBLE PERSONS ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN EVERYTHING EVEN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS.  THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES BECAUSE SPARE PARTS AND EXPERIENCED SERVICE ARE NOT AS AVAILABLE.  MOST AMERICAN BUSINESSES BUY USED EQUIPMENT WHENEVER THEY CAN AND MAINTAIN IT THEMSELVES ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE GROWING.  THE NEW EQUIPMENT IS OFTEN TOO EXPENSIVE AND STILL HAS TO BE OPERATED AND MAINTAINED PROPERLY FROM THE FIRST DAY OR THE DOWN TIME PUTS US OUT OF PROFITABLE BUSINESS.  IF WE DO NOT HAVE TIME TO "DO IT RIGHT" WHEN WILL WE FIND TIME "TO DO IT OVER".  

AVERAGE WEIGHT OF MATERIAL PER YARD DIGGING COMPACTED FILL DIRT, SAND AND GRAVEL:  2700 LBS (1225 KG),  PER CUBIC FOOT 100 LBS (45.36 KG); WET MATERIAL + 20%, ROCK AND ORES WILL USUALLY BE 30 TO 80% HEAVIER;

MELROE 331 TRACKHOE LOAD CHART:  

COMPLETE DETAILS ARE REQUIRED FOR PARTS SEARCH AND THE REASONS ARE:

1    WE NEED THE TYPE OF MACHINE, BRAND NAME, MODEL NUMBER, SERIES NUMBERS, SPEC NUMBERS (ALSO KNOWN AS PRODUCTION NUMBER IN SOME BRANDS), SERIAL NUMBERS AND DESCRIPTION TO GET THE AVAILABILITY AND PRICES OF ANY PART OF ANY ITEM NEW AND USED.   THE MODEL NUMBER, SERIAL NUMBER, SPEC. OR PRODUCTION NUMBER FOR BOTH THE ITEM  AND ALL THE NUMBERS OF THE ITEM, MACHINE OR APPLIANCE  IT IS USED IN.   THE REASON THIS IS NECESSARY IS BECAUSE OEM'S (ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURES) ARE REMOVING THE MANUFACTURE'S DATA PLATE AND ARE PUTTING THERE OWN STOCKING NUMBERS ON PARTS SO THAT OWNERS WANTING REPAIR PARTS HAVE TO COME BACK TO THE MANUFACTURES SYSTEM TO GET THEM.   NUMBERS ARE CHANGED BY MANY COMPANIES AND MANY COMPANIES ARE BOUGHT OUT BY OTHER COMPANIES AND THE NUMBERS ON ITEMS NOT DELETED ARE MERGED INTO THE BIGGER SYSTEM.  THIS HELPS SUPPORT THE DEALER SYSTEM AND THE PARTS STOCKING SYSTEM.  

THE PEOPLE IN THE WAREHOUSES CANNOT FIND THINGS WITHOUT HAVING ALL THE NUMBERS AND GENERALLY THE WAREHOUSE PEOPLE OF TODAY HAVE VERY LITTLE MECHANICAL APTITUDE AND/OR ACTUAL EXPERIENCE SO THEY HAVE LITTLE IDEA WHAT MOST PARTS DO.  SEVERAL FACTORS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPING IN THE PAST DECADE ARE SHOWING THE FUTURE.  THERE IS INCREASINGLY RAPID INNOVATION AND IMPROVEMENT AND WORLD WIDE COMPETITION.  SOME PEOPLE CALL THIS PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT.   EVEN THE FAMOUS VW BEATLE HAD DIFFERENT IMPROVED OR RESHAPED PARTS IN PROGRESSIVELY NEWER MODELS.   THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN THE SAME MODELS IN THE SAME YEAR.   THIS IS WHY THE SERIAL NUMBER IS OFTEN NECESSARY TO GET A REPLACEMENT PART.   IT SAVES US ALL TIME AND MONEY IF WE GET ALL THE NUMBERS AND PHOTOS RIGHT FROM THE START. SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

2    IT IS GETTING HARDER TO GET PARTS FOR OLD MACHINERY AND ITEMS OF ALL TYPES OLDER THAN 1980 EVEN FOR ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN BRANDS WORLD WIDE, THE CATERPILLAR BRAND.  WE HAVE SEEN THIS TREND MOVING TO ONLY 10 YEARS AND LESS PARTS AVAILABILITY OVER THE NEXT DECADE.  THE FUTURE WILL BE "THROW AWAY" OR "RECYCLE" OR JUST IN TIME PARTS EVEN IN THE FIRST 10 YEARS AFTER MANUFACTURE.   WE ARE SEEING AUTOMATED MASS PRODUCTION CHEAPER THAN REPAIR LABOR AND SPARE PARTS  WAREHOUSING COSTS FOR BIGGER MACHINERY NOT JUST ELECTRONICS AND SMALLER HARD GOODS.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

WE HAVE EVEN TRIED A FEW YARDS THAT HAD MANY OLD MACHINES AND THEY WANTED SO MUCH TO TAKE THE PARTS OFF THAT IT WAS NOT WORTH IT ESPECIALLY SINCE THE SAME PARTS ARE USUALLY BAD AND MOST MACHINES OF THE SAME MODELS AND YEARS.

3    MANY PARTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.   THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY DIFFERENT MODELS AND NO ECONOMICALLY EFFICIENT WAY TO STORE PARTS FOR ALL OF THEM SO THE MANUFACTURE'S WAREHOUSING DEPARTMENTS ARE BEING PROMPTED BY THE COMPUTER PROGRAMS, BASED ON "EFFICIENCY" AND "RETURN ON INVESTMENT" STUDIES, TO CLEAR THE SHELVES OF PARTS THAT HAVE NOT MOVED IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITY OVER A VARYING PERIOD OF YEARS.  TO DO THIS THEY GENERALLY HAVE "SCRAPERS" COME IN AND CLEAN UP.   THERE WAS A GENERALLY FOLLOWED "LAW" THAT A MANUFACTURER HAD TO HAVE PARTS AND REPAIRS OR EXCHANGE FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS.  THIS IS NOT THE CASE WITH MOST MANUFACTURES AROUND THE WORLD NOW.  IN THE U.S. THE STANDARD IS FOR 7 YEARS SUPPORT NOW.  MANY ITEMS MADE IN CHINA ARE ONE RUN ONLY AND WILL NEVER BE MADE THE SAME. 

THE "SCRAPERS" CANNOT AFFORD TO WAREHOUSE EVEN $3,000. CRANK SHAFTS AND OTHER EXPENSIVE MACHINED PARTS THAT MIGHT NOT MOVE FOR MANY YEARS IF EVER SO THE SCRAPERS SELL THEM FOR SCRAP METAL.  THE METAL RECYCLERS ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION.  EVEN THE BEST MATERIALS CANNOT SURVIVE IN SALABLE CONDITION WITHOUT PROPER CLIMATE CONTROLLED STORAGE AND A SYSTEM TO FIND THEM AGAIN.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

4    THE GLOBAL MARKET IS MOVING RAPIDLY TO A "MAKE AS NEEDED PARTS SYSTEM" USING COMPUTER CONTROLLED EQUIPMENT THE SAME AS ABOUT 50% OF THE ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT IS MANUFACTURED  NOW.  THIS WILL SAVE AN ESTIMATED 50% MINIMUM ON PARTS COST, MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE PARTS FOR MORE DIFFERENT MACHINES AND ACTUALLY REDUCE THE TIME TO FIND, AND SHIP PARTS WORLD WIDE.  

MICROSOFT, WHOM MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE ARE ON THE LEADING EDGE OF CHANGE, PERIODICALLY STOP PROVIDING TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR THEIR OLDER PRODUCTS.  THE POLICY IS TO PROVIDE A MINIMUM OF 5 YEARS OF SUPPORT FOR BUSINESS OPERATING SYSTEMS.  CUSTOMERS CAN BUY "EXTENDED SUPPORT" FOR ANOTHER 2 YEARS.  MOST OTHER COMPANIES PRODUCING HARD GOODS HAVE OR WILL DO THE SAME IN THE NEAR FUTURE.   THIS IS NOT THE 1950'S.  THIS IS NOT EVEN THE 1970'S.  WE ARE IN THE 21 ST CENTURY.   SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES.   

5     HERE IS SOMETHING WE HAVE LEARNED THAT WILL SAVE ALL OF US TIME.   IN THIS DAY AND AGE PHOTO INFORMATION IS ABOUT 10 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS TEXT AND ABOUT 5 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS VOICE COMMUNICATION.  PHOTOS ARE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE.  SEND PHOTOS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.  IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE NUMBERS SEND PHOTOS AND A TEXT DESCRIPTION WITH DIMENSIONS THE BEST THAT YOU CAN.  WE HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE ON SOME MACHINES THAT DATA PLATES, IDENTITY TAGS AND NUMBERS ARE LOST OR CANNOT BE READ.  WHEN YOU SEND PHOTOS WE CAN EMAIL THEM TO OUR NETWORK AND MANY MORE PEOPLE TAKE AN INTEREST AND FIND IT MUCH EASIER TO UNDERSTAND AND FORWARD TO OTHERS IN ATTEMPTS TO FIND PARTS FOR YOU.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

GUIDANCE ON TAKING MORE USEFUL PHOTOS:  TRY TO GET A MINIMUM OF 2 PHOTOS.  FIRST FROM THE FRONT AND LEFT AND THE SECOND FROM THE REAR AND RIGHT SIDE.  THIS GIVES 360 DEGREE COVERAGE.  PUT A RULER OR OTHER MEASURING DEVICE IN THE PHOTO SO WE CAN JUDGE THE ACTUAL SIZE.  SOME ITEMS IT MIGHT BE NOT POSSIBLE TO GET ALL AROUND.  PHOTOS OF THE INTERIOR OF COMPARTMENTS, CABS, MOTORS, MOVING PARTS, WEARING PARTS, IDENTIFICATION PLATES, LOAD CHARTS ARE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE.  PHOTOS GIVE VERY MUCH INFORMATION AND ARE UNDERSTOOD AND TRUSTED MORE THAN TEXT ALONE.  EVEN PEOPLE SPEAKING THE SAME LANGUAGE GREATLY SPEED UP TRUST AND UNDERSTANDING WITH PHOTOS.

6     IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING THIS IS NOT WORTH DOING FOR ONE OR TWO ORDERS. WE DO THIS TO TRY TO DEVELOP A LONG TERM GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP AND TRUST.   WE HOPE TO BE ABLE DO OTHER BUSINESS TOGETHER IN THE FUTURE. 

7    ALSO SEND SHIPPING INFORMATION INCLUDING ADDRESS WITH ZIP CODES, CONTACT INFORMATION AND PREFERRED METHOD AND CARRIER.        

8    MANY MACHINE SHOPS CAN REPAIR OR REMAKE MANY PARTS IF THAT IS ALL THAT IS KEEPING AN OLD  MACHINE FROM WORKING. WE HAVE EVEN HAD LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES OF MACHINE TOOL MANUFACTURERS TELL US THAT ON OLD LATHES IT WILL BE CHEAPER AND FASTER FOR THE CUSTOMER TO HAVE THE PART MADE LOCALLY.  IT WOULD ALSO TAKE 6 TO 9 MONTHS TO HAVE THE PART MADE BECAUSE OF LEAD TIME AND SHIPPING.  ANOTHER SLOW DOWN IS THAT MANUFACTURES WILL MOST OFTEN NOT SHIP DIRECT SO PARTS HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE NEAREST DISTRIBUTOR THEN THEY CAN BE EXPORT SHIPPED.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

9    YOU ARE CORRECT.  PHOTOS ARE NECESSARY.  SEND PHOTOS.  WITHOUT PHOTOS WE BOTH WASTE TIME.  YOU DO NOT BELIEVE HOW HARD AND TIME WASTING IT IS TO GET EVEN NEW PARTS WITHOUT PHOTOS. 

10    IF YOU FIND ANY SOURCES WOULD YOU PLEASE LET US KNOW AND WE WILL MARKET COPIES OF MANUALS AND SURPLUS AND SALVAGE PARTS WITH YOU.
