Grain cart repair

Recommended Posts

Got a call around 5pm yesterday. Cracked wheel on a grain cart. Told them to get the tire guy and remove the tire.

Pic #2 Crack, it went about 1/2 way around on the tire side and all the way around on the inside.

Pic#3 Ground out on the tire side and ready to weld.

Pic#4 Tire side finished.

Way to go Finney  looks like you went the mile and worked into the night for them so tire guy could install the tire first thing next morning. The world could use some more Finney's. Looks like they're shelling corn already?

Why, IYO, did such a clean new wheel fail?

The weld that holds the center in was defective. It was not fused to the rim on the inside only fused to the center plate and 45,000lbs of corn plus the weight of the cart and rough ground had a lot to do with it.

Seems early but i guess if they got it out early and it was a shorter variety. our area the corn is just starting to turn.

Wow,  I've seen TWO failed wheels/rims today.  This one on a big grain cart, and somebody posted a picture of his cracked rim on his Magnum on Facebook.  Inner bead and about two more inches to the middle of the first reinforcing bend cracked about 1/4th the way around the rim.  That wheel has inner tube and fluid in it.

We had a JD with 30.5r32 duals on it and the inside front rim split around 1/4 the way around. They won't split very far if tubeless more than likely as it will loose air pressure once it starts cracking. I did fix it, it didn't look like that though once I was done
