ConExpo – Con/Agg Trade Show - Featuring Loaders

Held every three years, ConExpo-Con/Agg is the place to be if you are in the Aggregate, Rock Crushing, Concrete, and Asphalt Industries.

This week of ConExpo-Con/Agg, we will run a daily review of the various types of construction equipment which can/do use JADCO wear resistant steels. Today we are reviewing loaders.

These applications can utilize our QT Plus ® and our Chromeweld ® family of Chrome Carbide Overlay clad plates.

In 2020, JADCO Mfg celebrates 40 years of providing the finest wear resistant steel for the construction industry.

Regardless if you have a huge loader like the WA800 or a smaller unit; the work you do wears out the steel touching your products.


This loader replacement bucket bottom has been used every day since 2005 during construction season in Wisconsin. Their QT Plus ® through hardened bucket liner is ready for another year. Does your wear resistant steel match up to the performance of JADCO QT Plus ®? Isn’t it time you discovered the JADCO difference for yourself?

Loaders are present in every type of construction project.
They are a work horse where you slowly wear out the steel every single day.

Here is a list of many of the wear resistant steel applications used on nearly every loader.
Which would you like to have last longer on your equipment?

Wear pads seen on this loader bucket protect the bottom from tons of high pressure, high stress grinding abrasion. Most OEMs use AR400 which is like an Oreo cookie; having a harder exterior surface and soft center. Heel pads and wear bars made from JADCO QT Plus deliver the same hardness throughout the thickness of the steel. Very few wear plates can prove the same.

If you did not had an opportunity to attend ConExpo-Con/Agg this year, you will have to wait until 2023 for the next one.

Not able to make it to Las Vegas this year? The good news is you don’t have to wait until 2023 to achieve significantly longer wear life for your equipment.

Coming Up Next:
Wednesday we will review Crushers, Screens & Wash Plant applications.

Thursday we will look at Bulldozer and Excavator applications.
