I am in states right now, bucket truck is in Guam. No photo is possible, believe me the boom needs changed. The replacement is available. I need to know the replacement cost as we are negotiating buying price for the bucket truck knowing the boom needs replaced.

Well If I were to have to estimate this job blindly I would estimate 3-4 8-10 hour days labor on it depending on other complications which could add more time. This will be unforeseen until it is apart. not sure what the labor rate is where you are but it is average of 100 per hour or higher here. You could run unto hoses and electrical problems and the hoses are special material for electrocution hazards. There can be more unforseen damage or worn parts once it is apart.I hope this helps.
