NE Iowa
I have a 16 year old Slinger that I bought new. Probably hauled about a load every other day on average over those years. I have never lost a hammer but put new bushings and bolts in this summer. The bushings were thin but broke through on one side but 80-90% of the way around yet. The new bushings fit well and still needed to be tapped in with a hammer. Not the funnest job but also have done much worse. The day I did it was super hot and I was using a cutoff wheel in a grinder to cut the bolts to get them out. I had safety glasses on most of the time but they kept fogging up. I figured taking the safety glasses off was better then cutting a finger off. Well I ended up with a piece of metal in my eye. It was nothing a $125 visit to the eye doctor didn't fix. But that doubled the cost of that maintenance job.
