A friend of mine has a problem with his mini-excavator. It is a "Nagano" NS-15. The problem is in the unit that rotates the cab and bucket arm. After disassembly we found the pinion that mates with a large ring gear is broken.
My friend was told that the pinion was not available, and he would need to buy the whole new rotator unit for something north of 5 grand.
At this point we are looking for a source for a used part. After a web search I was not able to locate a used part of even a used rotator unit.
Any help in finding this part would be appreciated.
