    I think it's funny that in the last pic you can tell which is the welding shop by how dirty the door is. I have two white doors & one is always brownish from being open while welding same as yours. Bucket looks good.

    Looking good. Man that bucket is a tight fit when laying on it's side. How do you flip it around? Outside with landlords machine or is your gantry crane enough?

    To anyone looking this is an example of when I would charge extra for wire as you go through a lot of it.

    Sorry but I had to plant that seed in your head.

    I want to know How you got the bucket in your shop.

    I hate when a customer wants me to use the wrong size material.

    I had a customer get mad when I refused to use diamond plate on the stick of the excavator when I was installing a 3 position thumb.

    I told him if he didd'nt want to pay me for the plate that he didd'nt have to pay for it but I wont put diamond plate on a excavator.

    He paid for it but has'nt called me back since, He put me between a rock and a hard place ( My reputation ) or Loose a customer.

    I dont know if I made the right decission or not, He's a farmer that has a Iron worker and his own welders so I'm hoping he just has'nt run across something he could'nt fix his self.

    I have seen alot of variations of rippers on the back of excavator buckets. I've seen guys curl Thier bucket in toward the Machine dig the ripper in and then drag the bucket away from the machine.Kind of like rippers on a cat just to break up some o that hard Rocky ground.. Not sure if that's the case in your situation. I live In British Columbia in the mountains so pretty hard rocky ground. only seen the rippers on logging road building machinery
