bucket. The inside length is 78-1/8"...I guess this might be called an 80" bucket? I'd prefer something that can be removed quickly, any recommendation would be appreciated.

tony, ive posted this pic before, its off a machine i sold but the flip up tooth bar was awesome, just loosen the nuts and the tooth bar flips up...gives you two buckets in one...

its made by Thomas, not sure if other companies make them...wish i still had it, but now use a GP bucket and a 4 in 1 bucket w/ teeth...

if i had just one bucket i'd try and get flip up tooth bar set up...

how about a second bucket, that flip up looks like it would get in the way of serious work

Try the Rezloh edge. No need to remove it. It digs great and yet you can fine grade just like a smooth bucket. Great cutting edge.

Does anybody in Red Clay Country use a Rezloh? Looks like it would be better than a straight edge but I doubt it would have cut into the dirt I was digging today.

They work very well. You would have no problem in your red clay.

Rezloh is the best out there I think. I have one of the removable/ flip up type of tooth bars that bobbyg18 talks about. They work very well digging. Only complaint I have with mine is when you lay the bucket flat the teeth keep the bucket a good inch or two about the ground.

I meant anybody from Alabama or Georgia. Can't break this dirt with a crowbar. We brick the cheap houses with the clods that come out of the big loader and dozer tracks. Don't even have to bake them. :rolleyes:

I have been kicking your dirt since the end of July. Believe me you will have no problem with the Rezloh.

I am not sure I understand this statement.


Believe me you will have no problem with the Rezloh.

Too bad I can't just demo it for a week and see for myself. I would like to give it a try but it seems like you would still be putting 1/2 the surface area into unbroken dirt at a time, where with teeth you have maybe 1/10, 1/20 or less the surface area so therefore more pressure concentrated to break through... then again, I am a loader operator, not an engineer, so what do I know? Maybe it works great? How much does a bolt on edge cost for a 68" bucket?

I have been in Al. since the end of July, Huntsville to be specific.

The edges cost about $6-700.00

No kidding? I would love to come have a look at that edge sometime and see how it does. Have you moved here or just got a big job away from home or ???

I'm from Huntsville originally but actually live just out in the county. Still do a lot of work in Huntsville.

JD Skidsteer, I saw what I assume was your dealership hauling a 9400 through Huntsville a couple Saturdays ago. Red tractor with a tri ax black detach. I wondered if that was you running the pilot pickup. I am working at the Arsonal. Not that big of deal.

That was a dealer out of Snead. They have the Scraper contract with Deere. They sell alot of them. They also do well with used heavy equipment. We run a white Pete with JD stripes. We are actualy only about 5 or 6 miles off the Arsenal on Research Park Blvd. I try to stay off the Arsenal. To much of a hassel getting in. I have a couple old crusty farmers buddies who run cattle out there.
