    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?

    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.

    I have never seen the side pods either. Usually just flat wear plates welded on the sides. Curious to hear about them.

    As I said theses are to divert rock away from the sidewalls of the tires.Supposedly preventing damage.I don,t operate these machines just work on them.This is what the operators at the pit said they wanted this is what I givem!

    So, how come you didn't build out the scallops between the teeth?
    Nice fit on the floor plate, I guess you are still liking the crane?
