Piranha Tooth Bar for Front End Loader

Anybody ever installed the BX Piranha tooth bar on a FEL? I have been looking at these and thought it might be useful on my CTC loader. Just looking for other's experiences.

Re: Piranha Tooth Bar for Front End Loader

It was the first thing I added to my tractor. I couldn't see not owning one now.

Re: Piranha Tooth Bar for Front End Loader

Yes, it made a huge difference on the 45; well worth the investment. Originally, I thought about removing it for jobs other than digging dirt; however, it's extremely handy for leveling rock and all sorts of other things. It's tough enough to stand up to use/abuse, too; after many hours of use, it's still in good shape.

Re: Piranha Tooth Bar for Front End Loader

I have the Caterpillar version of the same thing,,,

I had the tractor 15 years without it, and truly, the tractor could not dig.



Now it can!!

As the size changes (they'll make one for any kind of bucket), the price will vary a bit.

Re: Piranha Tooth Bar for Front End Loader

It was also the first addition I made to my Kubota BX. I agree with all the good things said about it. It also makes the bucket just a bit larger. The couple of inches are just enough to really help when hauling odd objects. When you point it down and pull backwards it acts as a rake.

Nice! I am still waiting to try mine out. Of course I still have to drill the holes in the bucket to install it
