I am a parts company for tractors and construction equipment. I was wanting to know from some of you how often you have to buy new mirrors and wipers and what would be a reasonable price you would pay for them?

Wiper, quite often. Mirrors, not so much. The only trouble I have with mirrors are when the heating element goes out. Wiper refills at NAPA are pretty reasonable, 6 bucks maybe. Mirrors are rather pricey, I usually put the prices on the box when I get them but for some reason I didn't do that for what I have in stock. I'd say $70 or better for one that fits 98 through 2002 BB (or there abouts) and a considerable amount more for the newer style. Bus Boy crossing mirrors are about 60, I think. These are all for the ones with the heating element in them.

With wipers being checked daily on pre-trips especially when dry leads to higher replacement rates.
