    Yeah... ewww. I get their spreader trucks and tanks once a while, they are good enough to firehose, then hot wash the things. If they sit and dry for a few days outside it's not that bad.

    Welded steel pens in the barn for 30 yrs. To get the full effect you have to mix in a little galvanized coating. Honey wagon was always fun to work on too...

    I will have fun fixing it and improving it at some point. I really expected something to bend, didn't think it would simply snap. Must be a harder grade steel.

    That'll give it tongue weight.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    I wonder if it's something to do with the heat affected zones from the reinforcement. I would have expected it to bend too, but if its hard metal then it will need a bit of pre-heat before welding and low hydrogen welding process.

    What was it, a ripper shank to start with? Probably something pretty hard and tough...

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    I have seen points 72" snap in haft
    They under so must stress they just give up.
    Weld back to geather will just fail but sooner and the blame the welder. The steel is shot till replaced.
    It is lots of welding but can give a welder a bad name.

    The steel is some type of AR plate.
    I would replaced the steel.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    I guess we saw the welding but didnt pay much attn to the design. I posted a job on a forum a while back and someone knew more about it said, dont think it will work,,,, he was right and I really had to go back and look. The learning curve was high. It involved some real fundamental principles I didnt grasp.
    Yours is a bit more forward buy it needs a shank 6 inches vs 3 or so.

    The type work I did most of life failures is not a option.

    For our small dams we build trash racks out of rebar, the tops are teepee shaped to keep from building up with organic matter. We've had beavers try to block them to the top. One may have had an electric fencer attached that worked very well, but is a little more management intensive than what you may want.

    I have no idea how these are made,, so I looked for a pic of a factory designed ripper.

    There's very little taper in the shank, until it reaches the tooth.

    I generally look at other designs to come up with something that might work. This one seems reasonable I guess.

    Don't you know grinding in a little bevel and some 6013 is the proper repair🤣

    Working with E7018 right way is a pain.

    I like going to box of rod and just welding.
    Most manufacturers of rapper's use A36 and just about any rod will work.

    I think not having to mechanically intervene every few days sounds pretty attractive. We haven't tried electric fencer, consider it soon to be tried.

    Buried here, if I can find it is a Bron cable plow. It was mounted on a D7. I set it up once for three point hitch to root rocks from my driveway. It worked well, but rooted up a thousand rocks, I then had to deal with. I know within ten feet where it is. If you want it, I'll try to find it.

    Ah, no. You couldn't be any more wrong on that one. Most likely T-1, 80 or 9018 with preheat and interpass temperature followed or you'll be picking up pieces and doing it again, provided you weren't ran off for good.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    I all ways check hardness before welding.
    So use the right rod.
    I found older earth moving equipment (before 1960's) used mid steel not even A36.
    But simple hardness test will give information about steel need.

    If over do welding or under do you will get a bad name.

    If I see the name CAT odds are they use a harden steel.
