Your answer was so bad I lost faith completely. I could have thought that out myself. I needed somebody on the farm. Please give my deposit back
Technician: DR.Cummins, FIELD SERVICE TECHNICIAN replied 8 years ago
The reason i gave you the info is because they do come to your location and perform service to the unit, This is what you asked for "I need a mechanic to service my Komatsu D45 bulldozer on my farm close to Stoffberg Mpumalanga" There for i gave you correct information. A mechanic who comes to YOUR LOCATION is a FIELD SERVICE TECHNICIAN. And not all shops have this option. Thank you
