  • Front loader bucket

    Did two of these for a customer. Front backhoe bucket worn out at heel. Both buckets almost identical wearing and repair. I plated the lower back first to return the proper depth of the corners. Then plated the bottom and added some wear pads. The little pc. on the side is to fill in the gap that was worn away and brought it all back to square/flat. One had a good sized crack where the edge meets the floor. Also both needed welding where the lower arms attach to the bucket here. Only pics of the second bucket. Pic1- worn through plus lower loader arm attachment seperating. Pic 2- you can see how rounded the corners have become. Pic 3- crack where edge meets floor, can't really see it to good.

    Finished product pics. Nothing fancy, plated over what was there. Pic 1- 1/4" plate bottom plus 3/4" blocks. Multiple passes at loader arm lower attachment plus positioned those two blocks so they would catch there also. Pic 2- corners all squared up again and flat all the way across bottom. Pic 3- different view. Ready for bolt on edge. All done with .045 innershield (flux core) wire.
