Maybe my post wasn't clear. I wasn't advocating building up the shanks. I assume this machine is for occasional farm use, just like mine. As you say, this bucket will last a long time as is. I would get some points and try them on the center shanks at least, before cutting them off. But I suppose if you were set up to replace the outer two, doing the whole job wouldn't take much longer.

Adapters are cheap and you want to be able to replace the teeth if need be. You could take the old adapters off with an angle grinder if you really wanted to. Welding new teeth on the old adapters is a real redneck repair. You might as well just use it as is if you're not going to fix it right.

This just never ends. I wasn't advocating welding teeth on the shanks either.

When you talk about fancy Eutectic rods maybe you could be more clear what you're welding. To weld shanks on you don't need any kind of special rods. 7018 is all you need. Now if you're welding the teeth onto the shanks or building the shanks up, then you might want special $$$$ rods. That size of shank on that bucket won't need preheat other than being at room temperature.

I appreciate the input and thanks for clearing that up. Looks like:

1) Grind off old adapters

2) Weld on 4 new adapters

3) Hardfacing on the remaining edge

Last question (for now) is there a brand of teeth you reccommend or use or stay away from?

Just get the cheapest forged teeth like from Black Cat Blades or H&L. Probably 23 series H&L style with bottom mount adaptors and the rubber insert pins. Check the thickness of the lip and get the adaptor that fits. There are welded teeth available but they can break.

I just get them at the closest source. Which for me is my NH dealer. They are a farm equipment dealer but also have the backhoes. I got teeth for my old IH from them, and now have a Ford 655A.
