Sunday funday, straightening @jdlbackhoe 10' snowblade. Thanks for your patience buddy. Now for some reinforcements, that manhole cover won't know what hit it. #pembertontruckandequipment #snowblade #snowplow #hdmechanic #lincolnelectric
@line_bore_welder My solution is using the second oxy/acetylene real for shielding gas and propane/nitrogen, saves cabinet space and job site clutter over having multiple single circuit reels #servicetruck #welding #weldingrig #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment

Putting the boom back on this Cat420, forgot my 2 part hook block in the shop, won't need it much on this #cobracrane #12000 #hdmechanic #servicetruck #pembertontruckandequipment

Being such a short wheelbase and having a pintle hitch and air makes this the go to truck for moving trailers in the shop, but I still hate backing these up, especially with the reach fully retracted. I bet someone out there could make it look easy. #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #oldbinder #4x4 #logtrailer

160h up here from pender harbour, having trouble going backwards, clutch pack pressures on spec, but had a history of sticky clutch pedal. Also full of water :(

Pushing hard to get this grader out the door today. Among the list of little things, no high range on the old gearco tranny. Looked at it only briefly months ago, something internal. Fearing chewed up clutch collars or a damaged shift fork, I removed tranny mounts and side access cover today to inspect, and was pleasantly surprised. At some point shift rod had been turned counterclockwise until shift fork was an inch ahead of where it should be, probably somebody trying to remove the shift rod cable clevis which looks recently welded. #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #everybodysworkinthroughtheweekend

Summer 2014, this #caterpillar #D6 track frame had that #camberedout #racestance. Pivotshaft weldment fell off. Caught others cracking here too. Not the nicest weave, but the pressure was on to get her done for the next day, client didn't even want to pull it out of service! #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment #7018 #lincolnelectric #trackframe #pivotshaft #weldment

Brule Mine 2014, pulling the twin travel motors before tearing down the broken final drive on a #hitachi #ex8000 #faceshovel on #nightshift. A couple hours operation on broken tumbler shaft destroyed most of the drive housings and gears, apparently this repair was over $700,000 in parts alone. The machine died in a fire earlier this year.

Second service on ST2 tonight! I can see why @industrial_ironworks went for the Lincoln vantage hydraulic/air. It would be nice to not have to run the truck engine so much for air, dc and ac power, and hydraulics. But idling the truck also keeps the cab warm, toolboxes heated, and the cardlock in business lol #internationaltrucks #4x4 #fabcan #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #preventativemaintenance
Workflow today. Pony trailer application air leak, Volvo 380D oil sampling and prepurchase inspection, finally got the correct injector cups to finish that Cat 330C job. I felt bad that it was monsooning into the engine the day I diagnosed and pulled the cups so I decided to spoil her with new injector orings, a cooling system flush, fuel and oil filters, and even an oil change and valve set. Hung around too long and had to do a fan hose on a Cat 252B too. #nahani  #volvoce #caterpillar #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck

Rigged up another #Hyundai 210-7 to run a #deniscimaf dah150 mower. This one also already had an auxiliary valve section for the thumb, but had to increase all plumbing from 3/4" to 1" and 1.25" return, add case drain line and filtration, add three ball valves and a pilot pressure reduction valve to set flow from aux section, joystick and wiring to run mower door, mower rebuild, mower lugging, bunch of repairs on machine, etc. I never use IG filters but this machine and mower need paint so now it's less hideous. #hyundaiconstruction #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment #servicetruck #rigups #installation #onestopshop #hydraulics

Gotta love welding up a broken push frame when's it's dumping so hard that the snowflakes are connected. Snowed like this the entire time I was building the white service truck outside back in 2014. Time for a new pit tent! #johndeere #snowclearing #welding #gouging #lincolnelectric #internationaltrucks #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #whistler #whiteroom
About a foot of mashed potato in the whistler valley right now, the snow clearing guys are enough to keep a guy flat out alone, and yet we're still chasing hydro right of way and construction shows trying to beat the snow. I was curious how the beast would do in the greasy snow we get on the coast, she did not disappoint. I got up the hill to this machine barefoot, 4wd, rear diff locked without much trouble, I'm pretty sure if I threw two sets of chains on the limiting factor in how far she'd go would be better judgement... hahaha. Replaced the hyundai injection pump solenoid with an updated part, much bigger and different mounting, done a couple already but man they can be bitch to stuff in there depending on the cylinder head casting and maybe pump timing. #cummins #zexel #hyundaiconstruction #internationaltrucks #4x4 #supersingles #goodyear278 #snowwheeling #servicetruck #rightofwayclearing #vegetationmanagement #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment #anywhere #anytime

Last job of the day, Cat loader, complaint of no down pressure on boom, quickly verified cylinders not bypassing, pulled boom spool, good, inspected pilot housings and found the mini spool for boom float mode was getting jammed due to wear in the bore of the aluminium pilot housing. This causes the main spool to skip past the boom down position all the way to float mode every time. #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment #servicetruck #hydraulicrepair #whistler #snowremoval #snowclearing

That time me and @gabeketts were foolin around at the falls with a swing drive weldment that didn't quite fit right. At least it was Friday and @serafina_castles brought us some awesome lunch. Weldment had to get sent out to get corrected to match the sample bolt circle clocking. Then the pilot bolts lined us up perfect. Never got any final install pics but she's out there somewhere killin trees. #hdmechanic #servicetruck #pembertontruckandequipment #hyundaiconstruction #welding #lincolnelectric #steamclean

Bobcat 341 hoe with no swing, swing brake valve delivers full pilot pressure to release brake when attempting to swing, swing spool delivering full system operating pressure to motor. Suspect swing brake stuck on. Pulled swing brake release plug and there's your problem. Hydraulic oil bypassed the brake release piston causing a hydralock condition. Repacked the piston and she's back to work. #bobcatequipment #rexroth #hydraulicrepair #hydraulics #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck

This cat 330c has been leaving a trail of fuel everywhere it goes, leaking out the coolant expansion tank. A lot of it too, by the looks of the tank it's been running on bad injector cups for a while. Wonder how the liner packings in this C9 are doing, the cooling system hoses are already getting soft ๐Ÿ˜ฌ  #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #caterpillar #injectors #injectorcups #monsoonseason

If it works it's less stupid. Easier to get this bulged hydraulic tank with multiple cracks under my trucks outrigger than loaded into the 75ton press at the back of the shop.

Customer needed quick coupler lugging and a baseplate for a mower rig up on a 210 size excavator, got a bunch of quotes from our suppliers, everyone was about 2 weeks out, so we built it. No cnc burntable or vertical mill here, just me, George, a #torch, suitcase welder, #magdrill and #lineboring gear.

Seven day a week show for the next little while, one nice thing about weekends is there's hardly any incoming work, fewer distractions, and a more relaxed attitude, it's more productive. Bunch of work on this nice older western star logger today, cup and saucer replacement on the jeep. Too windy to run wire outside today, I gave Mike the warm end of the truck to work on because he was nice enough to help us catch up on a Saturday. #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #lincolnwelders #lincolnelectric #welding #logger #bclogging #canadianlogging #servicetruck

Broken scale pad bolt extraction, clean the hole, preheat the bolt to help unseize it and to ensure a good weld, burn in some heavy wall pipe hot, for a 1-1/8" scale pad bolt 1/8" 7018 rod works nice, give it a light slam with your favourite hammer to loosen the broken bolt, work it loose, wind that fucker out and replace.

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.

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

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 ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ#pembertontruckandequipment #safetyfirst #ppe #wcb #worksafebc #worksafe #servicetruck #hdmechanic #shakehandswithdanger #caterpillar #catchysong

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 ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿบ #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 ๐Ÿ™„ #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! For dragging itself up nasty pipeline right of ways or??? #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #wrencheveryday #bantam #internationaltrucks #4x4 #detroitdiesel #jimmy #crane #loghome #poleyard
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
Abrupt end to enjoying the last three weekends off with head gaskets, injectors and other repairs on the lovely MBE 4000 in the shop, ripping qt100 plate with the Beetle outside for new low bed ramps. #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #shop #dieselrepair #welding #fabrication #beetle #dualshield #fluxcore #qt100 #mercedesdiesel #mbe4000
Getting a little squirrelly on this beautiful morning en route to an A/C repair and mower head rewire  #hdmechanic #servicetruck #pembertontruckandequipment #servicetruckmafia #internationaltrucks #4x4 #difflock #frameflex #washout #mud #supersingles #widebase #airconditioningrepair #vegetationmanagement #rightofwaycutting #rightofwayclearing #hydroroad
@line_bore_welder My solution is using the second oxy/acetylene real for shielding gas and propane/nitrogen, saves cabinet space and job site clutter over having multiple single circuit reels #servicetruck #welding #weldingrig #hdmechanic #pembertontruckandequipment
And have a look at unit 5, I think there's something going on with the rear diff...

#Windmill failure, had to fish the exhaust side out of the muffler which was quite the pain in the ass, straight pipes are way better at taking out the trash. #komatsu #cummins #holset #turbofail #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #leafblower
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
๐ŸŽถIf you got the money, honey, I got the timmmeee๐ŸŽถ fitting song while packing up after working till 9 on a Friday to finish track adjuster and recoil repair, track swap, ac repair and service so these guys can get back to mowing Saturday morning #willienelson #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #internationaltrucks #4x4
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
Getting ready to connect the crane to the overhead transmission lines so we can run the welder for free #hyundairobex #deniscimaf #highvoltagetransmissionline #vegetationmanagement #welding #lincolnwelders #pembertontruckandequipment #hdmechanic #servicetruck #internationaltrucks #4x4
