  • Bucket flange repair

    These are some photos of a bucket i replaced the inner flanges with some bigger ones .The thumbs was tearing the bucket apart when carrying large rocks.I made them from some 1" plate i had.In the last photo you can see the size differents compared to the factory flanges.

                  Nothing compares to laying in a big loader bucket welding hardface on a windy 30 degree day in the dead of winter. Ahh the memories!

                      Adam, It looks to me that the pivot of the thumb may have been welded a little to close to the bucket giving an incredible amount of pressure where the bucket flares out.

                      The operator may be a little heavy on the hand, Putting a death grip on the rocks might be the problem.

                      As always your truck looks good.

                      As far as work goes this is the slowest I,ve been since I started in business back in 1988.

                      We still have work but the profit margins arent like they use to be.

                        Good work. I've seen the truck before but still like pics of nice equipment.

                        Slow work here too, side work seems slow. At my real job the work there never changes...Trucks/ equipment are always broke down

                          Portable,I thought the same also with the location,it was installed by the cat dealer out here. And the owner/operator did tell me he is heavy on the grip and also has been pushing its limit with some large rocks.
