Wow did not take long, back in service tomorrow?


We call that a "Gorilla weld" here.
Are the pins lining up straight and square?

LOL, I also had a towable break on my 'Toe Hoe' once while plucking a barrel sized rock.
The whole arm pulled away from the pivot bushing/sleeve.
Looked like they probably only used a mig welder but adding a strap and stick welding with 5/32 rods cured that in no time.
Long live a good stick welder for good penetration.

It take about 2 - 3 hours... I think this weld looks better in live.. it really looks horrible in picture.. :thumbdown:

Pins lining is straight, I got mount very good in place..

see his 2 videos which show how, I think, he broke the boom. That is some serious work for such a little machine. I'm really impressed that it could do what it did. It looks like in Finland, if you want to bury a rock, you have to do it with more rocks.

Do you have paint to match the color?
Or, are going to repaint boom?
There is an opportunity for self expression here.......
