I'd rather send it somewhere- driving to the local Cat dealer would take an hour and a half.

Cars go more than 3 months/3000 miles all the time and that's a lot more than 50 hours. If you go 80, don't worry about it unless you haven't run it long enough to get it to normal operating...

Can't really slap a lien on a house unless money is owed- it's not to be used as a vendetta or out of anger.
