Hello,
I have a Blue Line Blue Wave Truckmount with a Kubota Engine. Recently, my liquid Heat Exchanger brokedown and I will need a replacement. I called Legend Brands and they told that they do not make that exact heat exchanger anymore. But said they have a compatible Heli-Coil Heat Exchanger for $2,500. I rather not spend anywhere close to that. Anyone know any repair shops or alternatives? I am a cleaner out of Cleveland Ohio.

It depends on what "broke down" means. If you have a small rupture in one of the coils, and it is accessible, a good welder may be able to braze it for you. If you have multiple ruptures, or they are large, brazing may not hold them for long. And anything structurally wrong outside of the coils is catch-as-catch can.

I believe it has multiple ruptures. I am going to remove it from the machine soon so I can see it. Would it be worth buying a used one?

If it isn't leaking coolant. Then bypass the solution lines. Connect the two hoses together. May not be quite as hot but you will be working till you can get it figured out as to how you are going to fix it.

Liquid to liquid colent heat exchanger is the best and most simple way to heat Water that you can get

Way better than propane or fuel fire heat exchangers
