Piece by piece. Call up the manufactor and get there help.

Drain off the remaining product. Then start cutting it up. I would expect GVM to care about getting one of their catastrophic failed machines out of the field in short order.

The things we deal with in order to try and make a living. Call insurance I had a similar situation with a combine.

Been there, done that...100% no lie. Fold the booms forward until it flips back into place and ease it back to the barn. Weld it up and fish-plate all the big frame pieces. Don’t forget to paint the welds!

I had it welded and plated last year but the plates broke. There was a lot of collateral damage. Took the booms off, separated the two halves and used a large excavator to load it onto a trailer. Still waiting on insurance to decide if they are paying for the whole machine or just the damage caused by the broken frame.
