    I purchased the interstate battery truck to build up for mostly welding and small repairs.

    The blade got flipped over to repair cracks in the push beams and then plate over them. Replaced the cutting edges while it was that way.

    The last is a N-14 out of frame overhaul. TIO

    I have a simple information page on Facebook but haven't started a group, the Facebook page directs people here. The intent of this site was to build a reference source for heavy equipment operators where members can search for an issue they might be having with their machine immediately from past posts, you can't do that on Facebook.

    We all appreciate having you here!!

    The other pictures are of me straightening the end of a link belt LX 700 boom. After it was straightened with the press and some heat it got some minor cracks welded up then linebored by a subcontractor. TIO

    Put Heavy Equipment Forums.com in your Facebook search bar. Like I said, there's not much going on there, it's simply intended to direct new members here where our network is already established.
