    That’s a bit different from saying previously that you don’t drive?

    Being able to drive and not having a car is altogether different

    Good luck with your venture

    Isn't @Tino the Forum's resident bucket man?

    I new there is a guy on here that does buckets and the sort, on a much grander scale than I do that works for JJ Bullens I think and I am sure it is @Tino?

    I’ll no doubt be knocking on his door for advice as I progress

    He gets some bashing in his comments for being a cowboy, but I do like his stuff and I appreciate that a lot of his work is restricted by the customers budget. He's a 'get it done' type of guy and I've used that approach many times!

    Only got the one picture of the plates welded in as I was so sweaty and dirty I just wanted to get finished.

    There are 6 passes on the horizontal section you can see and 2-3 passes up the diagonal vertical due to where the wear strips are. The back face has 6 vertical up passes and the insides have 3-4 again depending on the state of the original sides.

    When using MMA I used 4mm 7018’s, would of preferred 5mm but my supplier didn’t have any

    Awesome, but how does a bucket wear out at the back like that?

    Everywhere that rubs against rubble, concrete etc.... on the bucket is made from hardox apart from the back section. The original thickness was around 16mm but adding 20mm will give him more use out of it, I’ll also be welding hardox wear strips to it when it returns as there are other parts of the bucket that will need looking at
