Earth Moving Bucket Repairs – Excavators

We specialise in earth moving bucket repairs. This is a process of assessing, fixing and rebuilding an excavator bucket that has been damaged over time, due to:

  1. Wear and tear.
  2. Bucket metal cracks.
  3. Dents.
  4. Cutting edge wear.

The repair process typically involves several steps which includes the following:

  1. Assessment: The first step we do is to check the extent of the damage. This may include inspecting the bucket for cracks, checking the cutting edge for wear, and examining the overall condition of the bucket.
  2. Cleaning: Before any repairs can be made, the bucket needs to be thoroughly cleaned. This involves removing any dirt, debris, or material buildup that may be present.
  3. Welding: We use welding to repair cracks or breaks in the bucket. Our goal is to restore the bucket’s structural integrity.
  4. Cutting Edge Replacement: If the cutting edge of the bucket is worn out, it may need to be replaced. This is a common maintenance task, and new cutting edges can be welded or bolted onto the bucket.
  5. Hardfacing: In some cases, hardfacing may be performed to reinforce specific areas of the bucket that are prone to wear. Hardfacing involves applying a layer of hard, wear-resistant material to protect against abrasion.

It’s essential to have qualified professionals or experienced technicians perform excavator bucket repairs to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the equipment. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can extend the life of the excavator bucket and improve overall excavator performance.
