          Nice work! BTW I love your truck! I would love to build one like that! Couple questions, what is the difference between AR500 and Hardox 500? Also, how did you get the curve in it? I am trying to get a shop to roll some 3/8" AR500 and they won't do it. Wish I had my own roller! Thanks, Brian

            Bumped it in press brake.Made the radius.My steel supplier it does,I believe the brake is like 300 ton.I,m told hardox is better.Cant give a opinion on that.

              I always thought Hardox was just a brand name for wear plates & bars? I have nothing to back that up though. Something to investigate.

                Admweld, Most of the buckets I come across the sides and the floor are even so I take my wear bars and overhang them about 1/2" each side, I see yours is a little different.

                I like the plates you put between the teeth, I cant say I have ever done that, Unfortunately I only get about 1-2 buckets a year to rebuild

                  The lower strips on the cheeks that follow the heel radius where overhung below the wearbars on the heel.Per the owner/operators request on this bucket.I do about 6-12 buckets a year.Some just base edges and shanks.Others complete heel and base edge.

                        Wear bars

                        Is the material for the wear bars of the same type as the bucket heel?

                        Thanks

                            Wear bars

                            Thanks for the info. Have never done that extensive of a repair on a bucket. Looks very professional. Did you use a low hydrogen filler or an alloy filler?
