Medium and Heavy Trucks

I drive a 98 UD 1800 for work. One of the drivers did not know how to drive a clutch. He would hit the accelerator before letting out the clutch. Now the clutch does not engage until it is at the top of the pedal. Also, I have noticed the distinct smell of burning clutch after driving the truck with a load. I can't seem to be able to explain to work the importance of having the clutch rebuilt. I guess what I need is an explanation that I can give them on what will eventually happen if the problem is not addressed. Our mechanic said it would take him two days, and a clutch kit is 500.00. What are the possibilities of a problem driving on the hills around Seattle or on the highway. Thank You for your input, Brett XXXXX Farm boy that used to drive water trucks with 5 speed splits
