On April 16, 2021, Unit #350, a Caterpillar model 623 Scraper was involved in a rollover accident at the Landfill. After the unit was recovered, it was sent to a Wagner Equipment location in El Paso for evaluation. During the evaluation, Wagner determined that the cab would no longer be able to be certified and the other damages to the unit were too extensive to be repaired.
According to the Safety Officer, Kathy Louer, our insurance investigator has submitted paperwork to the New Mexico Self-Insurer’s Fund recommending payment in the amount of $355,000.00. The deductible has already been met.
Wagner Equipment has quoted a new Caterpillar 623K Scraper for $907,410.12.
