Default Markham Welding -The Bucket Place

Hey Guys… I want to pass along a good word concerning Markham Welding and my new toothbar for my FEL bucket. I just received it today by UPS and I am very pleased with the price, service, quality and fit. They even called me this morning to let me know that it would be delivered today (I still can’t believe that). Be sure and check them out on the web at http://www.markhamwelding.com if you have a need. No… before you even ask, I don’t even know these folks, I just like to pass on a good word when someone does a good job. I’m sorry but I don’t have pictures. We put my 15 yr. old niece on a plane yesterday bound for the high school SkillsUSA National Competition in Kansas City, Missouri and she took my camera (another long story). She is also the one who started this "ya-ya" stuff when she was a baby. She has always lived with us. Cheers.

Hey Guys... further info on my Markham Welding toothbar: My JD 2305 bucket is 49" and the toothbar was $196.26 with UPS ground shipping to VA from N.C. You don't have to pay any state tax. My toothbar fits like a glove and is built very well with replaceable teeth. I am very satisfied and would recommend them. http://www.markhamwelding.com If I don't forget I'll try to take some pictures of it tomorrow and post.

I finally took some pictures this morning of my Markham toothbar installed on my 49” bucket. Markham Welding supplies 2 Pieces of 3" square 3/8" thick pre drilled steel as reinforcement for the bolt holes but some here have advised against welding them on. I think I will wait and see how it goes and if I notice any reaming of the bolt holes then I will have the plates welded on. I also ordered two 3/8” weld-on grab hooks from www.awdirect.com part no: PAB3B to mount on the top of the bucket.

Ya-Ya, is the tooth bar bolted to the bottom of the bucket also, or just the sides? Looks like you have already tried the tooth bar out. How did it work?

I have the same one it is only bolted on the sides. Did have to adjust mine with the die grinder a bit but it fits real nice. The tooth bar makes a big difference and is worth the money. Markham was the best price I found and they have a great customer service staff for a small company. They care about the customer unlike some companies.

BigD: The previous posts by Mayor gave great answers (thanks Mayor) to your questions. I have so many rocks that without the teeth I can't do much. One thing I especially like is it allows you to get underneath something way easier so you can lift it. Two bolts and I can have them off if needed. My toothbar fits like a glove and I love it.

Rocks? You have rocks?

That was a problem I ran into when I attempted to use the bucket. And it doesn't take a very large one to stop forward progress either! When I get home again I'll have to measure the bucket and order one. It looks like it will be a great asset.

Thanks Ya-Ya & Mayor!

Why did I join this forum?! I don't even have my 2210 home yet (away on work trip), and have already learned about things I need now that I didn't know I needed until reading about them here! I don't even have a bucket on mine, let alone teeth. Here's my wish list (once I get my tractor home):

1. front bucket (I assume I also need hydraulics to work it?)

2. tiller

3. mid mower deck with leaf baggers, etc.

4. now, I also know that I need teeth for the bucket I don't have... the lucres are fading fast...

MacLawn: Ditto on the learning stuff from this and other forums. One can never underestimate the knowledge gleaned here in an evening of reading. Personally, I have learned a lot from this website and am more than appreciative. There are lots of folks on here who really know what they are talking about because they work with this stuff and have actual hands-on experience. Fortunately, they are kind enough to share that knowledge with us. Myself… unfortunately, I know just little enough about everything to get me in trouble!
