    Hey I work for an equipment rental place and repair buckets all the time 7018 works well for me Make sure you do good prep work [clean metal no slag etc.]When I replace the blade I also replace wear bars on the bottom of the bucket Heck most of the time I cut out the blade and the whole bottom and replace with all new stuff BLADE COSTS 250.00 FOR 60 INCH BUCKET easy project have fun DEAN

    What kind of machine do you have? 7018 will work fine for stick or if you have a mig you can use several types of wire. I use esab 7100 ultra or lincoln 71m, both are dual shield wires. Pre heat the new edge slightly. I usually preheat to about 200/250 deg. but I have also done them with no preheat with out any problems.
