1900 Hitachi Stick
RT Welding & Fabrication, Inc. was hired to repair the Stick section of the Boom on a Hitachi 1900 Shovel. The owner of the shovel was preparing the shovel for auction. The Stick was badly deformed on all four sides. We made the repairs to the stick at our shop while another RTW crew, working at the site of the future auction repaired or fabricated and replaced the lower sheet metal covering on the shovel. At auction the shovel brought $1.7 million. We were told by the company that sold the shovel they estimated our repairs help them to get an additional $500,000 for this machine alone.
