Well, I decided to build a tooth bar for my Kubota L2000 with Leon 400 loader, I'm planing on doing a lot of digging in the future and I think a tooth bar would be really handy to have. I'm using a new cutting edge and some nice rippers type thingamabobs for the teeth. I'm going to cut the teeth to length and weld them onto the new cutting edge that I'm bolting on.

After this project, I am then building hay forks so I can move around loose straw to the garden.

I'm hoping to get the tooth bar finished tomorrow and then start on the hay forks!.

Got the tooth bar finished today, but I didn't get a chance to try it since it was dark.

Although it looks like it should work well!

Tomorrow I'm starting on the hay forks!

How does it work for leveling? I am used to seeing the teeth 75% on top of the blade 25% on the bottom. They cut the same but dont leave grooves as bad when doing the final grade

It seems to level pretty decent, I can just roll the bucket all the way back and level it out with the back of the bucket.

If I need to do very much leveling I will just use the box blade or the straight angle blade.

I got the manure forks done, I was in a real hurry getting them done and somehow I got the spikes different lengths??? When I got the spikes welded on, I realized that the spikes would be on backwards if it was on the right way and if I turned it around the so the spikes were the right direction then it wouldn't fit. So I just hurried and welded on a couple new mounts and I'll rebuild it later.

 

Anyway it seems to work well, I got a scoop of straw and manure/hay with ease!
