    Looks like a fun job, Gotta be loving that crane.

    Wow, Ive never seen a mow board wore that bad before ( Now that's what I call a receding gum line ) I cant believe the teeth haven't fallen out.

      I,m going to be putting pc's in between those shanks.This is a 1979 machine and only has 4000hrs on it.When those teeth start snapping I will get the call to replace them.

        Wow that's a big bucket. I'm kinda glad I don't get stuff that big. Looks like the cutting edge is radiused so the middle teeth stick out farther than the side ones. Never seen one like that. Looks like you're fitting it nicely, wouldn't expect anything else.

          Thanks MMW,That bucket is called a Spade bucket .This wear plate I welded with Dual Shield first time I have done this in the field.And I'm liking It.The deposition rate is awesome.I will be getting a tent setup together for doing this.Anyone got a good portable idea?Was thinking just a few 2x4,s cut with points and a couple of small tarps and spring clamps.

            I always just used my welding blankets. Would hang them between the job and my truck (when I was still using the IHC) with bungee cords and visegrips.

            We usually call that a "vee" bucket out here. Common in rock pits and mines. Easier to dig into a pile or hard ground with a wide bucket.

              Pardon my ignorance, but I have never had the term "deposition rate" explained, would you be able to elaborate what you mean when you say you liked the dual shields higher deposition rate? Thanks.

                Disposition rate = pounds per hour. You will normally also see an efficiency rate, which translates into actual weld metal left after all flux is evaporated off during welding or knocked off as slag.

                  I see, thank you for the response. A higher deposition wire or electrode would be a better choice if you have filling to do? Like a gap, or where material needs to be built up?

                  Very nice work on the bucket Adam btw. How did you cut the radiuses into the front edge of the plate you are adding?

                    No, a higher disposition rate simply means you can lay more work down faster, and in this case better, than any alternative methods.

                      I have a friend who's family is in the excavation business. We moved an excavator bucket that was all torn up from a quarry to a specialist for build up. The biggest excavator I've ever seen, with a 13000 truck and nine ton trailer we were loaded. The operator broke it trying unsuccessfully to tip over a column of marble 12' x 12' x 20' tall. Marble weighs 185 pounds per cubic foot. 2880 cubic feet of marble weighs 532,800 LBS! Had he tipped it over in his direction, would they have ever found him?

                          That's a first for me, I've never seen a spade bucket.

                              Okay, The wedges on the side are new to me, We keep the buckets narrower on the back side to reduce drag so it doesn't get stuck in what ever your digging, More so on excavator buckets than loader buckets.

                              What are they for.
