This Mini Excavator has more than earned its keep over the years, digging out floors, septic tanks, filtration beds etc. But she's starting to show the years of abuse and needed a fix to stop a potential catastrophic repair bill.

The two outer teeth on the buckets are supposed to be crooked,pointing outwards. There central longitudinal axis is aligned with the axis of the sidewalls on the bucket,to protect sidewall from wear when you dig. They wear out instead of the bucket. Once a bit worn, their length having reduced,you swap them with the inner ones,or change them,depending on what you dig,so the wear they suffer from.

The slow operating speed & heat on the lower (retract) side of your boom main cylinder are most likely due to damage to the o-ring between the piston and the rod, or in one or more of the seal rings on the outer diameter of your piston, especially since it looks like you guys used a hammer when installing both these items during reassembly. It is incredibly easy to accidentally cut cylinder seals and o-rings during reassembly & even experienced hydraulic technicians do it more often than you would think. If a seal or o-ring is damaged, much of the pressure bypasses around the piston, so you are losing pressure that is trying to force the cylinder to extend, causing the slower movement. Since pressure and temperature have a direct relationship, the increase in pressure as the hydraulic fluid shoves through the damaged area of the seal causes an increase in temperature in that fluid, so you will notice the retract side of the cylinder is notably hotter than the extend side. If the damage to the seal or o-ring is fairly large, you can lift the boom, release the control lever and the boom will often slowly drift down a small amount before the pressure on each side of the piston equalizes causing the boom to stop moving. You can positively determine if oil bypassing the piston in the boom cylinder is the actual issue without removing the cylinder from the machine and disassembling it using the following troubleshooting procedure: Shut the machine off and function the boom control in both directions to ensure you have bled the pressure off both sides of the piston. Now remove the hose from the raise (extend) port of the main boom cylinder and cap/plug both the hydraulic hose and the fitting on the cylinder (WARNING: Do this with actual hydraulic plugs/caps as you will be applying pressure to the cylinder next). Now start the machine and move the boom control to lower the boom. If the boom cylinder does not move, or moves just a tiny bit and then stops, the piston is NOT bypassing. From the description in the video, what you will most likely see happen instead is that your boom cylinder will actually begin to extend and lift the boom, even though you are applying pressure to the lower (retract) port of the cylinder and there is not even a hose hooked to the raise (extend) port. This happens because the surface area on the extend (raise) side of the piston is larger than the surface area on the back of the piston (since the cylinder rod is installed on that side) and the oil being applied to the retract side of the piston bypasses around the damaged piston ring/seal causing the pressure on both sides to equalize. However, since there is more surface area on the extend (raise) side of the piston for the hydraulic fluid to push against, the piston (and cylinder) are forced to extend. If this is what happens, you will need to remove the boom cylinder and carefully put another seal kit in it.

I realize I'm 4 months late, but I completely agree with your assessment here. If they haven't already it would be a good idea to take the lower arm off and check the seals. I've seen this more times than I care on heavy machinery as, as you mention, it is very easy to do. Even a tiny piece of dirt or silica in the line can cut the seals as well and allow for the pressure to bypass the arm causing enormous amounts of damage to the equipment if not addressed in a timely way. You will see scoring on the housing, or in the worse case a groove where the fluid has pushed past the seal and caused scoring to turn into a channel.

Probably everyone has mentioned it already, but you can place those pins & bushings in a freezer for an hour and they'll drop in much easier. Also, hydraulic presses are awesome for that job. Methinks you'll need to tackle your kingpin sooner than later since its off-spec movements probably caused the cracking.

If the cracks continue to appear on the excavator (tired material) the next step would be to cut and weld reinforcement plates around the most stressed area. The idea is to distribute the stress and not to have any sharp edges, look for the ones installed at the factory for example. The easiest is if you know cad and order these from online laser shop etc. Really enjoy your channel & the work you do on the buildings!

Next time if you need to put bushings in, get some canned air that is used for spraying dust off of computers and turn the can upside down and freeze the bushing, which will make it shrink a little bit and it will go in much smoother. Hope this helps in the future.

For as much work you'll do on vehicles and machinery, a decent shop press would probably come in handy, and is the far-better way to press bushings out and in. Very cool to see you guys tackle the job, and it looks like you're getting some great advice on the hydraulic issue you still have. I'd just add (again - apologies) that hearing protection is a wonderful thing.

The slow cylinder could be from leaking past the seal, I know it's new but it could have gotten torn during the install. The heat is generated by the fluid being forced through.

Indeed this. Always bleed the system of air. Some do it by themselves but need some additional switch pushed. And if you have any records, swap the oil every 1000 or so hours. Or just change them if you never did so, its not hard, especially not with your skill set. It will improve the digger's responsiveness a lot and fix those 'its faster up than down' things.

@carlrogers as it happens....I worked for the hydraulic ram supplier to JCB in the 1990's. I developed that boom raise ram with its "cushion bush" damper. The bush you fitted to the rod, adjacent to the piston is actually tapered by 4 minutes and it throttles the oil flow through the gland at the last 50mm of travel. This is to prevent the boom whacking at the end of the strokel and your bucket of muck flying out. It will get very hot as the hydraulic oil is squeezed through the gap between the bush and gland. Suffice to say, it's vital to it's operation that you fit it the correct way round! One thing I don't recognise is the little white things your dad placed in the gland oil holes. Edit: the grease holes in the bronze bushes don't have to line up with the grease nipples. There is a grease groove around the ram eye bore.

A good idea adding an extra fillet over the welded area, the bushes are not supposed to be lined up with the hole, you will only get grease into the bearing through one hole that way, there is a groove around the inside of the housing to carry grease to all four holes if you push the bush in, (after getting it out of the freezer) to block the entry point, and force it around the bearing, I cant believe the mast has cracked that badly after just home use. Good luck with that.

With the hydraulic cylinders being singles, I would say check the actuator settings for that circuit. Most you can adjust the pressure settings. You might have not noticed it before with all the issues and seal leaks. Another might be that when installing the seals. If the seal on the cylinder's piston has a bad lip on one side pressurized fluid can pass to the other side bleeding off pressure. Putting pressure on the other side will stop the leak as the lip (if it too isn't damaged) is now stopping any leak/flow to the other side. Most hydraulic cylinders that can be pressurized in both directions have a double lipped seal so that pressure forces the seal against the cylinder wall on the pressure side and merely slides on the other. One clue to the seal condition might be motor sound when the slide is at full retract or full extend. When a hydraulic cylinder reaches the end of travel pressure goes to max and motor sounds more labored. You can also usually hear the sound of the pressure relief valve bypassing fluid. Kind of like when you turn your steering wheel to one side limit or the other and hear the power steering pump bypass fluid. Try holding the switch down in both positions. If you don't hear a change in the pump sound when it reaches the full out position it's POSSIBLE you have a bad cylinder.

Lots of work for sure!. If you ever have to put brass bushings in those again like at 16:50 or so, you could also line it up and use the vice to press it in vs pounding. That can work better with a metal plate to push against vs the wood, but I saw you have some flat stock you were pounding on. That can be a more controlled insert vs pounding. That also works to put bearings onto a shaft if you take your time and line it up. I did that method when I put new bearings on my drill press restore project. Using a vice or press is much preferred vs pounding. :) Less chance of damaging the pieces as well. Though in my case I did split the wood on my wood vice and so moved it to my metal vice instead which worked better.

I will try to give you a tip for the future considering how you were cutting the bolt. I think it would be easier if you cut the bolt and nut directly from above at the center of the bolt. That way you cut the nut into half and you can pluck out the nut to sides and then bolt becomes free. Basically what im saying is you were cutting the bolt in half when im suggesting you cut the nut in half vertically. Im not sure if you understood me :D. Also nice work on the video :) !!

Very nice. If your hydraulic controls are cable driven, you need to check the adjustments to make sure the detent positions match the valve positions. I have a piece of JD equipment where the cable adjustment wanders and causes heating and sluggishness until readjusted. When you remove bushings without a press, it is easier to cut with a hacksaw or file so the bushing will collapse. Don't need to cut through.

The up cylinder being slow and the top of the cylinder getting hot probably means that you have air in the cylinder. The air is being compressed, which generates heat. Since the space the air takes up also has to be reduced as the pressure increases in the cylinder the cylinder will be slow. That may be a problem with other cylinders as well, since I didn't see you prefill the cylinders or do any bleeding.

I'd say your cylinder speed and temp issue is most likely a rolled seal or it tore during installation. The reason the speed is off is that it's leaking past the seal, and in turn, filling the top of the cylinder at the same time as the bottom, so it's working against itself, more or less. Going down isn't a problem since there isn't enough pressure to push oil past the seal. The same thing happened on my Volvo. It could be something else I guess, but it's exactly what happened after I rebuilt mine. I despise rebuilding cylinders, lol. I have a great hydraulic shop close to me. A friend owns it so I let him deal with it now. Saves me frustration and gives him some work, so it's a win-win as far as I'm concerned.

Press fit or shrink fit bushing design and installation is a common method of retaining bearings by use of interference between the bushing and the bushing hole. Bushings are available in standard sizes with both inside and outside diameters surfaces finished, and are commonly available in many sizes. Typically, bushings are designed and manufactured 0.002 to 0.003 inch over nominal on outside diameter sizes for sizes 3 inches or less. Diameters greater than 3 inches, the outside diameters are designed 0.003 to 0.005 inch over the nominal size. Because interference material is built into the bushings, and the bushing is normally manufactured to tolerances of +/- .0002. The effective interference of the press fit is designed and facilitated within the target hole which the bushing is installed. The process of press or shrink fitting the bushing into the hole, causes the bearing reduce in size due to the compressive forces applied. Additionally, the material which the bushing has been pressed into distorts some as well. In general, this diameter changes are equal to 70 to 100 per cent of the amount of the material interference or fit. Unfortunately, precisely or mathematically predicting the size change due to the effective compressive forces applied during installation has not been shown to be accurate. Typical installation compression forces and effective diameter changes may be modeled or characterized by fabricating several test cases and measuring the range and variations of the actual fit. Often, bushings are designed with additional diametrical material requiring a post press fit installation machine process to accurately ream to the desired diameter. Shrink fits are facilitated by chilling the bushing using a suitable median, such as liquid nitrogen, dry ice, or placing the bushing within a freezer. Cooling down the bushing is preferred rather than heating the target housing. Normally, the bushing is of significantly less mass than the target housing, though heating the housing and simultaneously cooling the bushing is no uncommon . When a bushing or bearings are pressed into a housing, the force driving the bushing / bearing should be applied equally or uniform to the end of the bearing to avoid galling, peening or damaging the bushing / bearing. The mating surfaces of both the bushing and housing should be thoroughly cleaned and imperfections as well as burrs removed.

Hi Carl, nice to see you read and reply to comments. I'm quite cheerful btw. All respect for your carpentry and roofing skills, but why post stuff for the world to see if you can't take a bit of positive critique? I've spend decades around plant workshops and was chewed out 1st day by the foreman for going in to collect an excavator wearing veldskoen (rawhide shoes). Next day, a worker wearing thongs and helping carry a box of CAT245 teeth had the bottom fall out of the box and lost three toes. Now, put your big boy trousers on and get down to Bricomart and buy yourself and the girl with the pretty painted toe nails a pair of €19.95 safety boots!

haha that sounds so familiar "when I was your age I (insert something your body isn't made for)" spoken by a man that can't get up from a chair at 55 😂

@carlrogers I recently ordered a pair of Birkenstock QS 700. Its a pair of safetyshoes but it's "barefoot-appropved". Wide, flat sole etc. Just buy a pair of really flat insoles and they're good to go. Just a tip since ive seen you using vivos :)

Open toed sandals ! Ouch that's going hurt. The thing is if you don't wear steels you can't squeak when it goes wrong. And it always does in the end

I hope you did more tightening of the piston nut than you showed in this vid because he would be lucky to get it to 100ft.lb in the vid, get a torque spec from a dealer and advice on loctite use and redo it if need be. A piston coming loose is bad news.

I’m surprised that machine had enough power to even crack the steel, ones I’ve used are too weak to dig a hole.

I am an ignoramus regarding mechanical repairs.... but that was fascinating to watch. I hope you get the 'hot pipe' sorted....could it be air or water stuck in the pipe? Loved the 'teeth' cleaning part.... be sure and keep that attention to detail up! Hhaha xx

17:25 Die Reparatur hält nicht lange, da gehört ein Knotenblech eingeschweißt um die punktuelle Belastung der Hülsen und der Bolzen besser aufnehmen zu können. 17:25 The repair doesn't last long, a gusset plate needs to be welded in to better absorb the point loads on the sleeves and the bolts.

Have not had time to read through all comments but the boom cylinder heating up is most certainly caused by fluid bypassing the rod piston. if it's only happening in one part of the cylinder then the cylinder is worn. Typically wear occurs at the end of the cylinder at max extension.

Back in the 1980s, a friend bought a VW Golf that had been set up for road rallying. After a few weeks he discovered the body shell was literally cracking up due to stresses that a normal road car might never see. He ended up buying a new body shell but he never got around to doing a full rally prep.

If the holes in the bucket are with oversized, those teeth will wear quicker. Either drill the holes larger and weld in a piece of heavy gauge pipe the the correct ID or just weld the hole up and re-drill it.

Maybe use a rack-and-pinion press when replacing bushings (or bearing cups, for that matter), instead of a hammer...

You should never grind those welds. I'm questioning if the welds will hold. I can see voids in some of the welds. A professional would have likely created additional plates to go around those large pin holes to strengthen the area. I think you might be doing this again in a short time depending on how hard you are on that machine.

Yup, thought the same exact thing when they popped it in the trunk. "That repair could use plates over the cracks for reinforcement". Then I seen him grinding the welds and was like "Noooooo!!!" Literally likely those welds were like that and those areas for a reason. Wasn't the prettiest job but for the purpose of safety and stopping the cracks from reappearing, definitely shouldn't have grinded them down.

Grinding welds can stop cracks from forming in some cases.

@17:05 we used to regularly repair cracked sticks and booms on site. It's a good idea to weld a gusset plate over the cracks.
