    Recently sunk the front end of our excavator in a creek, up to the electronics concole and seat! Computer fully emersed. have taken the computer out, apart and are trying to dry it. this is a firly new machine and there was still white grease in the computer box when we took it apart: will taking it apart work? drying it out and taking it apart and trying it? Are there any other suggestions?

    Cassandra; That sucks, we had a customer that sunk a Daewoo 220LL excavator upto the seat and the Epos controller was dried and saved for years. could try the rice trick, bury it in uncooked rice for a few days then clean with dry air and cross your fingers?? Good luck.

    We JUST purchased a large bag of rice! thank you! I have also read that cat litter with Silica works even better, takes less time and doesnt leave that messy carbohydrate dust IN the panel…??

    Fingers…and toes…definitely crossed! 🙂

    Hey Cassandra do you still have your fingers and toes crossed or are you having rice for lunch after running your 140? :silly:
