Hi all, I had removed the ripper teeth late last fall thinking it would be better for snow moving and didn't reinstall it this spring. While pushing brush and branches into a pile it was a job to keep the bucket from digging in so I got to thinking about what could be done then it came to me reinstall the teeth but on the bottom side of the bucket this would allow the teeth to side on the dirt and keep the bucket from digging in. Installed the teeth and just gave it a try this afternoon and it works like a charm I was able to bunch up the piles into much tighter piles.

Hi Alc, yep here's a few pics, originally the teeth were mounted on the topside of the bucket I moved it to the bottom side. The PK loader manual shows it installed on the top. See part 79 in the manual

Hi well here's some more information on the FEL ripper teeth, works great on the underside of the bucket for moving and piling brush etc but not good for digging or moving dirt. Last night I decided to remove some dirt / sod from in front of the hangar door, I have vertical bi-fold doors and the sod etc has built up over the yrs and it has become hard to open the one. Anyway it was a great opportunity to use a couple of attachments I fabricated last winter. First I used the 3 pt ripper tooth that worked good, then I thought I'd try to remove the dirt and sod with the loader bucket but with the ripper teeth underneath it didn't want to cut in very well so I went and got the Earthcavtor and used it that worked very good used the rippers to break up the sod even more and the box blade to move it away.
These are the only pics I have of the ripper / sub soiler need to get some finished one but her's what I have now.
