    Here's what I fabbed up. It's a 9' 1" thick steel I beam that can be bolted onto the bucket to speed up grading time.
    Tell me what you think

    Ok maybe it was a little too heavy.

    Just kidding, it's the grading blade for my large excavators! I tell you what, it really took some trying to get the rear of the tak to come off the ground. I had to pick it up and drop it quick, otherwise it held it fine.

    You need one on a Roto-Tilt clam bucket, then it's versatile.

    Did anyone happen to notice how high the mud stain is on the side of the machine? I sent my helper down in the woods to install a check dam in the creek and he managed to get it buried in the process. I was able to wiggle it out after a little time under it's own power. Go takeuchi!
