Here is a good option for those that might want to have teeth on their FEL but not permantly mounted so as to allow use of the FEL bucket without the teeth mounted from the great folks at Tractor Smart. I am thinking about one of these for my FEL bucket! :thumbsup:

I found these to be the least expensive attachments, and being one of the most rewarding in capability...it enabled me to dig out stumps, roots, effectively (of course a back hoe is the best) ..
The only thing one must do is to be accurate in their FEL measurements and have them make it to that size...I have a 61" bucket, and their standard product size dosent show a 61" available....Also these tooth bars protect your Bucket lip from bending or damage

Have you got one of these on your FEL bucket Duc? I am curious as to how much flex they have and how rigid they mount t the bucket.

Chief,

I would never have been able to do what I did in my back yard all summer long...I removed 30 sizable stumps plus trees (cedars, pines, maples, and their lovely roots ...had to dig pits 4-5ft deep at times to do it..but it did it real well because of the tooth bar....

Picture of a typical stump after it was pulled out with truck (SUV Jeep)

Actually the 5 foot pits were for my debris pile that had concrete, bricks, and general stuff I couldnt dump-non toxic but I couldnt dispose off

That is a pretty beefy sized stump you pulled out there Duc! :thumbsup: I may have to take a closer look at one of those.

Chief,

Here is part of my toothbar made by Woods. It is 49" long and weighs 52 lbs. I have the 210 loader and 49" bucket on my 2210. I got the smaller bucket, because I figured since I had such a small tractor, the smaller bucket would dig better. Toothbar is well worth it and this one seems heavy duty.

I've seen these on ebay from time to time but not lately, although I haven't really looked either. I'm thinking about putting one on my Bobcat. All the ones I've seen are to long so I may have to get some shanks and teeth and make one. I hope to be able to make it so it will swing up with a hydraulic cylinder operated from the aux. remotes. Anyone ever tried this ??

Mow, where did you buy your tooth bar and if you don't mind; how much did you pay for yours? Thanks!

It would be in my opinion. It saves a LOT of wear and tear on the bucket and aids digging alot!

Chief,

I bought from my JD Dealer. It was $285 (ouch).

Those are 3/4 inch bolts in the picture. I also had to buy a cheap 3/4" drill bit to drill the mounting holes in the bucket. Dealer offered to do it for free, but I didn't want to hassle with the transport.

Sunday I pulled up an 8 ft. Walnut tree with the tractor while the soil was nice and wet n soft so I could replant it. I was not about to dig a hole that size so I dug it with the FEL. I got down in the soil far enough to plant the tree but I was thinking then that I sure could use a good tooth bar. A "tractor seat epiphany" or a "TSE" if you will! ;) :D
