Cat back hoe
« on: July 25, 2018, 08:21:16 PM »
Looking for info on the pin that holds the boom to move left to right. 
On the 416 / 420. 
 Talking with guys about it wearing out in 4000 hrs.
Line boring is out because of the thing is cast iron.
 To me, that's a weak point.
Anyone know anything about it.
Thanks

Line boring is not completely out. It can be bored and custom steel bushings installed.  Still expensive.

Thanks, Kiko for your info. I was hoping some here knew something about backhoes, But I guess loggers don't use them.

you dont say what year it is. the first cat hoes. 80's. the hoe was a copy of a case. later cat had the curved boom. now almost everyone has it also. i would not expect the casting you refere to being cast iron. case always said theres is ductile iron. no matter what its made from its always moving and in the dirt.    i have spent a lot of time on case and jd hoes. and a few hrs on a 10 yr old cat. the cat was very nice

expander 'pins' are used in excavators if in a hurry to reduce pin slop for a while.

Expander portal global  (probably need to 3d metal print accurate inserts etc to take up slop)
