    That crack occurred from bending too sharp a radius.

    No doubt bending aluminum causes micro fractures on the outside of a bend. I repair a lot of these type of coolers and vibrations along with a possible stressed connection often is the cause. I think this one is in a pavement roller - extra shake-rattle-roll.

    Oh, yeah. I actually had a welding job in today. Cylinder lug torn off a big box scraper, 3/4" plate, you can see the notch that started the tear, hopefully the gussets will hold it for another 30 years.

    I wasn't aware a machine such as that existed. The tractor tows it must have at least eight tires? Looks to be a remarkable piece of engineering.

    You could pull it with a 2 wd if you were content to take really small bites, but yea, you would really want a 4wd with at least 250 hp on there. By the looks of the required welding, they've had some power on it. We had to replace the hitch on a 5.5 yd push-off scraper after somebody put too much horsepower on it. They are quite common in the Red River Valley where the terrain is unusually flat.

    I have a 10' box blade like that, I pull with 160 HP 2 wheel drive. Can't fully load it up, but most roads & turn rows are packed so it runs about 1/2 full.

    Show us what you welded today

    I had a 12 foot Schmeiser like this one


    I used it for light leveling /seedbed prep in peat soil with a under 100 HP tractor, FWA and duals front AND rear.

    Purchased new from a Washington state dealer near 12V IIRC.

    A big hydraulic cylinder on the rear roller was used to remove weight onto the transport wheels but I added two cylinders for blade lift too.

    That's nice work. I know of 2 Ranches here that have done 14 miles of replacement corner posts and rotted out rock jacks using 2" galvy and a rock drill. They did all the corners very similar to yours.

    Is that built out of the same steel as the bridge in Frick Park that fell today??

    It looks similar, except, your grader has more paint,,

    You should quote fixing that bridge.

    (the Frick Park Bridge was Cor Ten,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, )

    I guess Cor Ten and snow-salt do not mix,,,,,,,, Who (besides anyone!!) would guess salt is bad for Cor Ten ??

    The pres will fix it,,,,,,, he was there today,

    I have had some experience with Cor-Ten, It is a "self painting" steel meaning it will develop a tight rust that stops the weathering process... But overlapped riveted joints etc. that collect moisture and salt will just keep rusting internally. I've talked to a couple of "Engineer" types that consider Cor-Ten rustproof, WRONG, but they have degrees. Oh well, this is the result.

    No matter the material , rust jacking is issue. I've seen the buildup get almost an inch thick before. Anyway I'm sure Brandon will take advantage of any and all photo-ops provided he can remember where he is.

    Bridges have a long life expectancy, maybe my suggestion won't work. My old C65 had a rust jacking problem in the two layer frame. Experts told me it'd be ten years before it'd lead to frame failure.

    The "new" truck has a single layer frame I can pressure wash & paint. Wherever anything is bolted to it, it got putty knifed on Texaco Compound L Rustproofing Grease. All layers are sandwiched with this gunk. Been using it since 1974 with good results. A 1971 Jeep body was showing signs of early rust, I buttered underneath, and even on the surface anywhere rust showed through the paint. These many years later, it took a ride in raging flood waters, the frame is ruined, but the body remains solid.

    Might a product like this limit rust between layers on a bridge?

    Silver Bridge just above my house, was built in 1933. Its support members were a massive steel I beam truss assembly each side of the deck. It is owned by Green Mountain National Forest. A few years back Fed engineers decided the deck was deteriorating. It was made of concrete slabs most of the rebar in them running crossways of the bridge, supported by the massive trusses. The rebar inside the concrete wasn't treated for rust prevention & 1-1/2" diameter rebars were rust jacking, breaking concrete. Trusses, galvanized, were good as new.

    Instead of Cor Ten, why not galvanized bridges? New bridges cost many millions, why not stainless steel rebar in the concrete, or at least galvanized?

    Thank ya sir. I think there are 12 more slight turns to make for this one. I believe this is only a 100 acre area

    Put this simple entry in here today. I will be hanging a gate there and installing a cattle guard on the caliche road section.




    Do not adjust your screen, yes that second Gen has a full dash top.

    You may also be inclined to have a peek but I assure you, under that truck you will not find a leak.

    I read up on matching the rod material to the base material to be welded, I went with a large rod because of the sloppy fitment and the ground is on shiny metal. I've tried AC, DC, standard and reverse polarity and I've upped the amperage to 250, but I'm still having problems striking an arc. Suggestions?Name:  IMG_7650.jpg
