    I'm working at a Summer camp this Summer. For the past few days there has bean a guy working there with his excavator. He was moving alot of big rocks yesterday with it and he was thrashing hard. So, today a diferent guy was running it and he was digging a hole and he dug about three scoops and the boom broke. It had been welded and plated in the past. I felt realybad for the guy that was running it today becouse it realy wasn't his fault.

    there are plenty of used and take off cat sticks out there. Looks like a 311 or 312? Just call Milton Cat and they will hook you up

    It's a 315 and it's not my machine it's a guy that was working for the camp I work for. Knowing the guy who owns it, he will just have it welded and plated again.

    I'm sure he'll have some one with T-1 welding experience do it too...

    I never thought of that. I think he had it fixed by now. If he didn't that's what I would suggest to him. Thumbs Up
