The site says 1.5" more clearance than a D44...


A normal rockwell is about the same as a 14bolt. So it's like going from a 14bolt, to a D30!!

It's $180 plus shipping. A great deal for the amount of work it would take to duplicate that, IMO!

Yeah, it's the Avalanche Deuce skid. It is indeed a high quality, heavy duty mutha with some of the prettiest welds I've ever seen. Got a peek at one a couple of weeks ago.... Definietly a good price for the quality.....

have you ever priced a pair of dana 60's and a pair of rockwells, the obvious answer is no!

Those are some pretty ass welds, I would be tempted to try to shave a rockwell myself expecially now sense you know you have a fix if you F it up

the welder at work can make welds like that using 25% C02 75% Argon. He says he makes a lil puddle then pulls the gun make a puddle pull the gun etc...

Ok ive done that same technique. Its just ive never welded anything other than practicing with the argon mix.
I use the "whip it motion" kinda like 6011 where u go forward build a puddle go back a little go forward build a puddle .....
a jackass like me can make a very proffesional looking bead and when u paint it is looks even better.
It just look funny being almost perfectly smooth

This guy was saying that there is a 100% argon where u just haul ass with no movement and make a perfect bead. It used a high wirespeed and amperage.

It's the difference between hobbyist and journeyman. That's not just technique, that's experience and technique. Speed down, feed up, steady hand... Anybody who's welded, or welds for their bread and butter can weld like that.

they are not 1.5 inches better clearance than a dana 44. That would be impossible. Everything I have seen sais that cut rockwells are between a nine inch and a 44. Mine are right at the clearance of the nine inch though because I used half inch plate on the bottom. Those are cool but over priced and dont fit my exact application pretty welds or not.
