Got the tak for 10.5!!! Have to pay PA tax which is about 650.

The next question is what size bucket should i pick with it? I can choose a 12" or 18" and buy the other for $400 plus tax if i want it. Im thinking 12" and source my own grading bucket. Or should i do 18" and buy a small trenching bucket like 9" as well as the grading bucket?

We have almost no rock here on long island. Topsoil and sand

If they're bolt on tooth buckets, get both and look for a 9 also. I wish I had an eighteen. I have the twelve and nine. I am going to build a skeleton bucket for rock separation.

After running bolt ons I would never buy a toothed bucket.

That's a cute rig, will pay for itself in the first season. Bolt on teeth says it all RJ. You have a smooth face with bolt holes in it. Need teeth, put em on. Don't need teeth, take em off. I run smooth face when digging "hot" properties.

Oh ok. Ill check. I dont like the bolt on ones from what ive seen. Ive torn two off myself. The weld on ones with replaceable tips have held up the best.

I use bolt on tiger teeth. Never had issues tearing equipment up because I don't like fixing or paying for fixing iron. You'll find that many times slower is faster and there is no equal to finess

I don't mean to hijack your thread but I need a bit of advice. I am looking at renting a mini ex for an upcoming paver job and was curious if I should get a 12 or 18" bucket with or without teeth. I am going down anywhere from six to twelve inches. Will be using it to dig out the areas and moving the majority of the material with a dingo BC of the close quarters. If you need more info please let me know

Size of patio, type of soil, access for machine etc. get the biggest machine that will fit. I would probably say 18" with teeth
