    Why not put some Rezloh blades on it for dual purpose? I just bought the rezloh for my skid bucket and if it works out, I'm going to switch the teeth on my 4n1

    As for the question, I think my mounting plate on Bobcat 4n1 is low. I don't doze with it that much.. as it doesn't seem to work real good. I use it for clamping materials and dumping by opening the bucket since my Toolcat doesn't have the rollback or dump angle of my skid.

    I bought an older Bobcat brand tooth bucket with the QA plate mounted low for cheap. Mounted on my Case with the shortest stop-pucks it wouldn't sit flat on the ground...the back of the bucket sat up 2" or so too high. What a pain to try to cut grade! Sold it after the first week.

    Yellow - I'm interested to hear how the Rezloh does in rocky ground.

    I sent my bucket into shop to cut off the bolt head since I didn't have time. I should have it back soon and will post a review. I'm hoping it will do a better job of chipping hard caliche and limestone rock tops and not gouge base roads that I rework.

    Here is a pic of the 4n1 I found on craigslist. Also a pic of our new root grapple.

    I like the curved design on the back of that cat bucket. I need to look at my bobcat brand and see if it has that.
    My bucket's clamp edge is wearing out (where the hinged part meets the dozer edge). I need to work on that but it's been so hot I don't feel like doing anything when I'm off.

    This one is a little worn as you can see daylight when its clamped. I will eventually pick up a piece of ar4/500 and get it welded on underneath. But for now it works good. I do have to roll it forward pretty good to get the dozer edge to bite. That was on the cat though, haven't tried it on my rc100. I have a tl12 demo unit coming in sometime soon, it will be interesting since Tak units have the attachment sit about 2" below ground level when the arms are down.
