New Low Alloy
Metal-Cored Wire
Bridge construction
Metalshield® MC®-80Ni1 is a low alloy metal-cored wire designed for high strength welding where tensile requirements of 550 MPa (80ksi) are required.
This metal-cored wire is designed to produce high strength, high toughness, and H4 diffusible hydrogen weld deposits required in many applications, including structural fabrication and heavy equipment manufacturing.

How I Did It Project: Skid-Steer Attachment  
Skid-Steer Attachment 1 (click to view larger image) Skid-Steer Attachement 2 (click to view larger image)
Submitted by: Dave Munn
Dave Munn fabricated this multi-use skid-steer attachment out of 2-inch x 4-inch x 1/4-inch steel box tube and 3/8-inch thick steel plate.
The attachment can function as a boom for use on a construction site to set walls, garage or pole barn trusses, or to set small equipment in a basement or truck. The hook on the end allows for slightly over 21 ft. of height. There is also a hook closer to the skid-steer for positioning heavier items. The attachment can also accommodate a snow plow.
A hitch receiver tube was welded on the bottom cross bar of the attachment so you can easily move trailers around the job site.
Dave selected Lincoln Electric Excalibur® 7018 MR® stick electrode to weld the project because of how smooth it runs and the easy slag removal.
The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
