For us non machine folks... what the devil are those things for anyhow? They make the bucket look fancy, but what is their practical purpose?

They are to prevent wear on buckets and such, its alot eaiser to weld them on insted of sit there all day and make lines or X's with some hardfacing rod or wire

I can't say enough about these chromium carbide patches. Here are some more pics of the 988 bucket after feeding over one million 800 thousand tons in the crusher. That's not counting loading trucks either from the bank or the stock piles. On the front edge of the bucket the frog was getting washed out between the patches so I burned them off preheated and built up the wash outs and will put new ones back on without any gaps. I was able to burn them without any problem with a burning torch. Will add patches as needed. In and out time about eight hours. Also there is no hard facing on this bucket, the patches are cut to size as needed with a plasma cutter.

I'm impressed. I looked up 'Tri-Con Metals', it appears they may now be a division of Kennametal, which is a carbide manufacturer.

Someone asked the purpose....the previous answer is it in a nutshell, but the pic of the excavator bucket shows how proper wear prevention really works. It traps dirt in between, and the dirt then acts as a barrier reducing wear on the softer base metals. (Dirt on dirt will never wear the metal!)

I'd love to find a source for these in my area.....and I'm wondering, what size are the actual blocks that you're using? (It's hard to get a good guess with nothing really good for scale in the pics.)

That stuff looks a lot like what I know as "Super Clad". I build a lot of buckets and go through a lot of it. You can get it in about any shape you want. Can be rolled as a liner for say a D11R blade, or 992G bucket. Or cut into strips.
Pro's- Great wear, stuff last forever.
Con's- Price, extremely hard, will crack and fall off if used in high impact areas, such as leading edges. Can be difficult to work with.

To line a D11R blade with it cost something like $20,000-$30,000. Can not remember the exact price, needless to say its expensive stuff.

Cool pics, love to see other people's work. Especially when its of the same things I work on every day.

I'm currently building a Komatsu 300 bucket for "Eagle Creek Mining". I know you've heard of them jksweld. And tomorrow I'm going to be fab'n up some Clad strips for the bottom of it. I'll post some pic's tomorrow evening after work. With some nice close ups of the clad it's self.
