    That does look like a sweet compromise. I would just be concerned ripping up the street and peoples driveways etc. plus i like the raking action of the big teeth for roots and rocks etc

    The Rezloh goes a great job scarifying the ground. The only downside is scraping off of improved surfaces. When I first got one, it was hot out and I was picking dirt off the street, and drove the bucket right into the asphalt. If you keep the bucket flat it works good, just dont angle up too much at least when your on asphalt.

    Its probably awesome for grading for concrete slabs. I don't like how much dirt traditional tooth buckets disturb but at the same time its frustrating trying to cut in with a straight blade

    I have a Rezloh edge on a bucket and must not be using it right but am not impressed at all with it?

    I tried the rezloh bucket stripping black dirt and then did the same thing with the other bucket(buckets are the same dimensions) and it did not seem to be any easier or quicker? I have used it on some grading and loading projects and again it didn't seem to be anything special, to me the 'hype' for the rezloh doesn't seem justified? I would rather just have a regular bolt on cutting edge.

    If someone wanted it I would be more that happy to sell it...:waving:

    The benefit of the edge is that you can dig into hard pack soil much easier than typical cutting edge. The additional benefit is that you can back drag with the same bucket and leave it smooth which you cant do wiith a tooth bucket. You can also scarifiy the ground with the Rezloh which you obviously cant with a solid cutting edge. I think the edge is a big advantage if your in hard ground a lot, which I am. If your in loamy topsoil thta is easy digging, you likely would not see the benefit.

    That would make sense. For the most part it's sandy soil here.

    I will say it does look mean on the machine...

    I went with A Rezloh when i went with a CTL. With the weight and cost of these Bradco buckets i wanted to stick with one bucket. Edge is costly, but wears welll and is a good compromise
