We have a forestry...

We have a forestry boom truck that frequently shuts down while driving. What should we be looking for?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

We are going to try and fix it ourselves if we know what to look at

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow-ups are free after ratings, so rate with confidence!

What is the year, make, and model of the truck? I see t has a CAT 3126 engine. Is that correct?

Have you cehcked for fault codes with CAT ET?

You want a 5-star service and I want to provide a 10 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see, touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much I can back to you.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback, they are not the site feedback.

Please note: The site does the phone call requests, not I. I do not generate the request. Same as the memberships. The only thing I ask for is a positive 5-star rating, when we are finished, for my personal service to you.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!
