This was a fun project that demonstrated our ability to turn around a very large repair job in just a few days. The bucket had to be modified by cutting off the old support plates and welding them a few inches wider. We then fabricated additional gussets.
After welding the plates and gussets into their new home, the bucket was moved from the fab shop to the machine shop where the bores were machined true.
Our team worked Saturday and Sunday to make sure our customer could install the bucket when construction resumed on Monday.
