BAK LARON Welder survives truck fire and still works

The rugged and durable equipment stood up against the flames and just needed some minor cleaning and repair.

Shari Carlozzi, National Sales Director at Hapco, Inc. recently told us how Tampa-based Arry’s Roofing experienced an unfortunate truck fire. Inside the truck was their BAK LARON welder. It was scorched and blackened so they sent it away to see if it was salvageable.

Watch this video of Shari giving a tour of the damaged equipment, showing how the inside was intact and untouched! The welder simply needed a clean up and some new dials and buttons and will be fully functional once again.

Most other equipment service centers would have considered the damage on the welder too extensive to repair and would have opted to sell a NEW $8000 welder instead of trying to salvage the old one.

You can see by the “after” photos that the unit has been restored to “like new” condition in both appearance and performance…all for around $1800.00! (and that’s including parts and labor!) THAT’S a LOT less than $8000!
