Last job of the day, always forget to take before and during pics when it's  home time, but basically the plate under the ears on the back/top of this stick delaminated and cracked through the welds, caught just before she peeled the ears off. #Gouge, #weld, #blend and hometime. #airarc #lincolnelectric #commander500 #ln25 #dualshield #hyundaiconstruction #internationaltrucks #servicetruck #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment #twighlight #ledlights
Closest I've been to the @whistlerbikeprk in years has been to do some repairs on this #kaiser #spiderexcavator. I miss riding #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #dhmtb
Bolster repair, chasing cracks around the cup and saucer and new wear strips/shims under the bunks to finish the day. #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #loggingtruck #bcforestry #bclogging #welding #airarc #ln25 #7018

Some #hydraulic ramps we built a while back for a customers 25 ton equipment trailer. Runs off the dump trucks pony trailer dump valve. This is originally a single acting circuit, converted to double acting with the addition of return oil circuitry and a remote valve under trailer so it's safe and user friendly. The ramps are constructed of #qt100, continuously welded inside and out and internally gusseted. Try to break em! #ln25 #dualshield #7018 #welding #fabrication #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #hdrepair #servicetruck #deniscimaf #komatsu #vegetationmanagement

Closed centre valve bank reseal on that now complete #johndeere #648g #skidder project. Spool packing and seals between sections were pretty cooked and leaking, found a blown oring and backup on the main relief, which would allow the pressure compensating pump to not destroke fully, generating heat and noise as some oil bypasses the blown relief at 3000psi. No longer leaks, quieter and cooler too! #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #hydraulicrepair

Sometimes it takes an experienced eye to make a cost effective repair to save an older machine from scrap. This #johndeere #648g has over 25000hrs and some of the issues that comes with it, but overall ok and most major components have evidence of being out at one time. Was parked for a bad main hydraulic pump, new pump over $7k. Got my hands on the core that the hydraulic shop said was irreparable, inspected and ordered new main relief and swash plate bearings (and had valve plate and swash plate lapped and coated due to weathering while being apart for a while). So she's running sweet for a fraction of the price of a new pump, so we have some budget to fix some of the other issues on this skidder. What I learned years ago working for gypo companies is always inspect your failed component before buying another, both for reasons of not getting screwed by your rebuilder, and also being able to repair components when it's within your shops capacity. #pembertontruckandequipment #hydraulicrepair #hydraulicdesign #hdmechanic #servicetruck #skidder #bclogging #canadianlogging #hydraulics #pistonpump

Another beauty Monday with friends George, Mike, and @serafina_castles. Some welding on this 25 ton trailer, getting a couple #def metering unit and battery related issues licked on this sweet #tridrive #westernstar #logger, and installing a #pacbrake compression release brake on an old #3406b. Thanks to our pal @walkerevans_hd for the referral. #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #welding #tracktorch #detroitdd15 #dieseldiagnostics
Shut her down early and had a shop safety meeting last week... Watched an old classic over a couple beers with our awesome crew. Its interesting how safety culture has come so far since this film was released in 1980, that we were able to point out many lapses in safety even in this video. If you treat every job as having the potential to kill or maim your person, you'll find the hidden and visible hazards and collectively mitigate the danger. Stay safe out there everyone πŸ‘ŒπŸ½#pembertontruckandequipment #safetyfirst #ppe #wcb #worksafebc #worksafe #servicetruck #hdmechanic #shakehandswithdanger #caterpillar #catchysong

Dragging a new project to the shop. #648g #skidder resurrection. No hydraulic pump. Connected the service trucks crane circuit to raise the blade and grapple, steer, have the welder keeping the dead batteries charged so we can start engine, to keep park brake released- most of the time haha. #johndeereforestry #johndeere #bcforestry #servicetruck #hdmechanic #beautifulbc #pembertontruckandequipment #tirediron #maintenance #forestry #logging
Fired up the old firewood processor yesterday. This thing is over 40 years old and still pukes wood. We did a ton of work on this thing last year, restored full automation, increased bucking and splitting capacity, added emergency stop switches and fuel solenoid, auto bar oiler etc.#hdmechanic #heavydutymechanic #servicetruck #pembertontruckandequipment #firewood #firewoodprocessor #madeinkaslo #beautifulbc
Natures way of telling you not to work Sundays, even in an emergency: service truck stalls at bottom of driveway en route to service call, replace ignition relay, all good. Next a downed cedar tree blocking forest service road halfway to job, big end of tree in fast moving river so kind of sketchy to move with crane but we prevailed. And then truck died again 2km after the tree, this time the injection driver module lost its power feed due to a broken ring terminal in the battery box. None of these slowed me down more than 20 minutes, but I was definitely wondering what was waiting for me at the next corner lol. Manual burn on a #caterpillar 336e, new dpf coming in the next couple weeks, also charged the ac and had a beer with the boys 🀜🍺 #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #heavydutymechanic #servicetruckmafia #servicetruckmafia #dpf #downedtree #lillooetriver #catet #dieselproblems #dieseltrucks #internationaltrucks #4x4 #hotaf

Gross job. Oily, greasy, smokey, limited access. Cut the swing drive weldment out of this hoe to have a new one made. Swing drive had likely been loose for months, 1/16" of wear on the bottom of the swing drive and on this weldment. Drive housing getting faced too. New weldment will compensate for pinion height difference. Holes are getting drilled and tapped to the next size up, 22x2.5mm. Swing brake parts are on their way. Theres a labourer coming to clean this mess up, and I'll be back on site next week to gouge out some of this metal that got contaminated with oil and start the installation. The old boys I learned the trade from made good repairs that would outlast the rest of machine, and that's my goal too. #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment #heavydutymechanic #servicetruck #servicetruckmafia #hyundaiconstruction #dieselproblems #welding #gouging #airarc #lincolnwelders #lincolnelectric

Got 9 out of 11 bolts out. Most threads galled up from the bolts being loose. One is still moving, the other is completely seized. Will burn them out tomorrow when there's a fire watch around, might just cut this whole swing drive weldment out and get it machined flat again. Along with the bottom of the swing drive πŸ™„ #hyundaiequipment #robex210 #vegetationmanagement #deniscimaf #hdmechanic #heavydutymechanic #pembertontruckandequipment #servicetruck #welding #brokenbolt #boltextraction #smokeyhole #justalittlecancer

Average Monday, broken swing drive bolts, swing drive spun and sheared the brake valve off and popped out of its bore. A little bit of wood fibre made its way in the grease tub. #hyundaiconstruction #robex210

Slept in. Spent time with family. Ideal work weather, a few small jobs, shapin up to be nice day. Got this old bantam fired up for log home production. Check out the size of that deck winch and fairlead. Hecken huge!

Komatsu rock truck, broken chassis ground for the dump selector solenoid fried solenoid and retarder/dump ECM. No cab jack, no problem! #komatsu #pembertontruckandequipment #servicetruck #wrencheveryday #hdmechanic #troubleshooting #repair
Me and the customer both pulled the short straw on this job... booked his truck in while he was on vacation for some EGR repairs, an overhead adjustment and new manifold section, couple oil leaks and AC repairs. Couple days work max right? When we were washing the engine, we noticed bubbling from a couple of the headgaskets, and a bad miss on #5 cylinder. Ordered extra parts and carry on... no problem, just bumps the schedule a couple days... until you pull #5 unit pump and find the cam is fucked and being an in block cam, with the gear train on the back of the fucking engine, because now you're pulling the fucking engine on this truck just to do the cam. Ok now your schedule is sort of bruised. But that's what Saturday and Sunday are for right ? #dieselproblems #mercedesdiesel #mbe4000 #dieselrepair #camshaft #unitpump #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #wrencheveryday #servicetruck #junk #busierthanaonearmedtrumpetplayerplayingthunderstruck

Went and did a skid steer tire and hydraulic pipe for a good friend this afternoon. And an engine on a cabin cruiser, leg on a bow rider, and caliper and hub for a ski boat trailer. We don't do boats but neither does anyone else in town  and these belong to my heavy equipment customers soooo... #boats #holeinthewateryouthrowmoneyinto #bringonanotherthousand #minesparkedcosicanrideinyoursforfree #hdmechanic #wrencheveryday #pembertontruckandequipment #servicetruck

This broken #cat #c15 #mxs manifold stud made me work a bit, heated, drilled, and got it moving but then broke the extractor, went back to plan A, which is patiently build it up with 1/16" #arctec #unicrom, Our usual MO is to skip all other steps that sometimes work and go right to welding the broken ones out, which almost always  works if you're careful and patient. #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #welding #brokenstuds
Track adjusters were pretty mangled on this robex210. Not holding grease and one side had the recoil tension rod come apart and someone put it back together with a welder and not near enough preload, the track was skipping and being thrown constantly. #undercarriage #hyundaiequipment #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #shop #hydraulicpress

Got overly ambitious yesterday after getting boom done quickly. So I decided to  stay late, save myself a return trip and rebush and line bore front axle oscillation last night too. Things were going smooth during disassembly and set up, but by the time I was ready to machine the frame bores to size, all hell broke loose. The rotten log roof of this shed caved in as the ice and snow melted away, striking the machine, only missing me because I was underneath. Then the rain flooded my work area, and then the bar got gritty and I had a bearing stick, right at the end! Today went much better. #hdmechanic #lineboring #cat420 #pembertontruckandequipment #internationaltrucks #4x4

Little #lineboring job on my antique #champion740 on Sunday. Previous owner had the mouldboard fall off and kept driving, breaking mouldboard track, circle ears, side shift and pitch cylinders.

Been forgetting to pull the camera out a lot lately but heres a partial list of items that let their smoke out last week, Pisten bully 200 final drive, Volvo Bm25c fan pump, Cat 308c stick cylinder, makita grinder. Most of you know this, but for those that don't, for best operation, the smoke has to remain inside the component in question. #catapillar #volvoce #pistenbully #makita #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #hydraulicrepair #servicetruck

Slewing pinion from Menzi Muck excavator. Only a 12 week lead time on this baby from the OEM so needless to say I had one made by #eaglemachine in Abbotsford, BC. Very quick turnaround and reasonable pricing, we'll be using them again. #brokengear #hdmechanic #menzimuck #pembertontruckandequipment
Back on the Spryte snowcat this morning. I had a new front torsion axle made up, I've trussed and added the mounting brackets to axle tubing, installed custom made splined drop arms and spindles.

If your rod packing is leaking on your high pressure hydraulic cylinders, you can be assured it's cavitating to some degree. Inspection of the stick cylinder make up check valves confirmed they were working properly and this cavitation damage came from the leaking gland packing. #hitachi #hdmechanic #hydraulicrepair #cylinderrepack #pembertontruckandequipment
