    Anybody else ever have this happen? Thanks goodness nobody was carrying this thing at the time. This would be our 4th piece of equipment run over in the last 5 years.

    Not mine specifically, but it belongs to the company, yes.

    When I was at UQ, 1 week we had about 5 pieces get ranover, along with a few phones.

    JB Weld.....I thought about it....problem is, the board is cracked and the internal antenna crushed the main MPEM, and the retainer holding it to the board. Death sentence. This is what it looks like when you run it over in the case with the front tire of an 11 ton vacuum excavation truck. Thank goodness the reciever didn't take a hit.

    I think the warranty just was voided. I don't think that is really fixable (maybe Metrotech could) that's not a 'throw some duct tape on it' problem.

    worst I did was leave mine sitting on a duct on the edge of the rd. Did a couple clears after that and didn't realize I forgot to to grab it. NEXT DAY I am 2 towns away on my 1st job and found out I was a moron. Went back expecting it to be gone and it was still there, the cone was still there, and it was STILL ON! lol

    I've had an 810 run over by a semi hooked up to a test station. Wasn't much left. Oops.

    A car left the road and drove onto the grass to park and ran over my transmitter. His car insurance company bought me a brand transmitter and receiver.
