Application - Repair Dents to the Inside Section of an Articulated Hauler Hitch.

Industry - General Industry: Heavy Equipment

Contractor - Technical Consulting done by IMS Sales Consultant John Alexander 

Problem - The Articulated Hauler had been wrecked and the maintenance crew needed to get it back into operation.  The inside portion of the hitch is greased with an o-ring to keep the grease from escaping.  There were dents in the area that allowed grease to leak out. 

Solution - Cleaned and mechanically prepared the inner portion of the hitch, applied Belzona 1212 Super Metal and let it set. Once hard enough to sand, the inner hitch was sanded down smooth and the repair was complete.
