Thumbs up Tooth Bar attachment

Anybody have experience using the Tooth Bar on their FEL? I just ran across a website for them. I've got an SC 2450 and have used it with the smooth edge during my room addition and it worked for digging but not well. Looking for experiences or advice here on this product or something similar if you know of any.
Stay safe out there..
Ken

Re: Tooth Bar attachment

There are a number members on the forum that use the Piranha Tooth Bar, including myself.

I am very happy with mine and have not heard of any negative reviews on this forum.

Re: Tooth Bar attachment

I agree with Mike X485. The Piranha Tooth Bar increases digging ability 3 or 4 times.

Talking Re: Tooth Bar attachment

Thanks for the replies on this. I have been in contact through the wonders of the internet and will be pulling the trigger soon on an order. Undecided about which one so far but leaning to the Toothbar only because it does not need have holes drilled to mount it. I'm not thinking this will replace a dozer or anything like that but I would like it to be able to dig a little in some of my projects.

I will say that the drilling was not easy. After using a couple pilot bits, it took 2 or 3 $20 dollar bits to get it done. But, once its done, its done forever.

Re: Tooth Bar attachment

Precisely what I was thinking it would be like. God knows I have drilled more than my fair share of holes in expensive equipment over the years but I was not looking forward to drilling those. Methinks the other might have some advantages for not having to do that. Still curious about how well they will dig with teeth added. I dug the slab area for a room I had built last year and with a smooth bucket, it was indeed a slow process. Got it done but it took awhile.
Thanks for the reply racetra....much appreciated.

Most tooth bars are either welded or drilled on. I did not want to fool with the clamped on bars. Im as happy as can be with the Piranha. Your tractor (I think) is about the same ability as my JD 1025r and I found that the Piranha increased the digging ability 3 to 4 times. There is no comparing digging with it as opposed to not having it. I upgraded to the JD 2032r and kept the same bucket with the Piranha tooth bar and am looking forward to digging when it gets warm. Keep in mind, the hour or two drilling will be the end of it.

Re: Tooth Bar attachment

We have a toothbar that may interest you. It requires no drilling and uses set screws in each of the shanks to secure it to the bucket. Here are some pics:

Now that is a wicked looking bar. Just in the interest of checking all the sources, where can this be found if a person wanted to order one? I am liking the idea of the clamp on as opposed to drilling.
Thanks for the pictures and message.
