Heavy Equipment Repair. Excavator Bucket Cracks Welding

JW Portable Welding & Repairs supports other contractors with our welding services. We accommodate our welding equipment and techniques in order to provide our customers with the best possible weld.

The pictures presented above show our repairs of cracks in an excavator bucket. The placement of the crack presented a challenge due to the thickness of the material, therefore, we used a double V preparation before welding. We decided to a “stick” weld using high tensile rods would be best suited for this repair.

To begin, we dried and warmed the metal and then shaped a double V in a crack. Next, we put the “high tensile” weld passes in place of the missing material, with each pass completely cleaned prior to putting the next pass. During this project, we faced some challenges due to the winter weather, however, the project was completed successfully.

For more advanced projects regarding crack welding please take a look at welding casts and take a look at our specialization.

Our technological advantage, efficiency and effectiveness sets us apart in the industry.
