Chester,

With that damage, it would be about as easy to go ahead and put on a complete new A frame. That way you could make it extra long so you could have a nice big storage box on it. Or maybe an extra battery or two. It would handle better with a longer A frame too.

Good luck on your project.

Hi Chester,
I couldn't really tell from the pictures what kind of frame damage you have. I intend to jack up the trillium and look for cracked weld joints. Is there something else I should look for? Could you see your frame damage before you took the boler off? I saw on another web site there was a recall of trillium frames including my year so it's on my list. Windows first. Thanks for any pointers.

Hi Maggie
The frame is broken on both sides of the "A" frame itself.Someone had done a patch job,but not very good.Also there are a few cracks in and around where axil joins to frame.

Hi Guys
This Boler had about 12 bolts holding it down.I took boler off of frame by myself using a small hyd jack.I just kept blocking it up till I had clearence to pull frame out backwards.Took about 1 hr after bolts were un done.
