Backhoe with broken lock pin
This was a late call in February. It was already getting dark and about -6 degrees Fahrenheit.
Here's the photo I received that showed me the damage.
I pulled it over a covered piece of concrete, and cleaned it up to get a better look at the damage.
Had to fabricate the new part in the shop that night. I didn't have a partner preheating so I ground the edges down to get good weld penetration.
The new fitting welded and painted next to the old one just after the owner tested it out.
Right after getting to the job site. It was chilly outside.
