Replacing a cutting edge on an excavator blade


GeneSun
GeneSun

Hey Andrew For what it's worth we went through grader blades like they were butter. I tried a set of new blades and built up the edge with Forney 42405 rods and it gave us 4-6 times the life. You'll need carbide or diamond wheels to dress it. I made a edge pass with 1/8 inch and capped it with 5/32. It is brittle but in our application we are saving 10 grand a month on cutting blades.

A tip if you like, take a straight bit of angle and tack it to the job where you want to cut....take a grinder with cutting disc and score a line along the angle. That way you can see it with the plasma.... I tend to just disc right through as it requires no grinding and is ready to weld to.....

+Andrew Camarata Yes, however the clean line makes a good area for the weld to run into. The last one i put on for a farmer was 90" long 8" deep and 1 1/2" thick with 7018 rods....

T1 steel is what you have there young man. It is an American standard for cutting edges. Also, you will find it cuts differently, and grinds differently as well. But it will last and last and last.

I don't weld that much anyway.. picked up one of those crappy 80amp throw away harbor freight mig welders.. flux core.. I mean it will weld but only small stuff.. I need to find out how to make the heat setting on it adjustable .. probably cost as much as buying a better one to do that

Only thing I'd recommend is with cracks, typically you don't just want to throw a weld over top of it, Isn't usually a good or permanent fix, I'd recommend grinding the crack out completely, Then welding with high penetration, Maybe using a 6010 electrode or turning the amps up on your mig welder, Then get a nice deep penetrating bead layed in the gap that goes from toe to toe, then just stack beads on top of that making sure they penetrate into both sides and the underlying bead. But that may just be overkill, What you did may very well work out.

hard steel = steel with more "C" (carbon) tempered/treated with harding solution; please always clean the surface before you weld it (use some abrasive solutions) , it will help to improve the overall weld; good job overall

Wouldn't long tacks (Stitch Welding) be easier than fully welding the top of the cutting blade to the mild steel frame? That's how I welded wear bars on buckets when I welded in the 70s thru the 80s, saved on hard servicing rod.

I really love to read these comments from people that know what is going on in the world. I have watched all of your vids and read many many of the comments about dirt and compaction ad nausium only to figure out that these fine people haven't a clue about different dirts and their characteristics in what ever depths to solid rock will be. Some seem to know about their typical area but probably could not tell you what plasticity index or probability of vertical rise exists. I have been doing what you do for over fifty years and I can't possibly get as smart as some of your viewers. As for welding I'm sure that you are not going to build another floor on this little mini ex or going to pump high pressure gas through it. I can't imagine that this little tractor will ever generate enough force to tear even a badly done welding job. Keep doing what you do. Thanks for the vids.

To avoid warping the steel cut 12” leave 1/2” cut 12” and leave 1/2” and repeat. Let cool then cut all the 1/2” spots you left. Then the steel will stay straight for ya good buddy. 👍

I never welded so my question is - would it be best to run a sander or grinder on the old blade and the new piece of metal to clean them up before welding it in hopes to get the strongest weld ? I also think that if you doubled up the new edge you made with the other 1/2 you cut off = it would last a very long time !
