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.

Would you mind taking some pictures of your bucket and teeth ? On mine at some point it looks like a solid blade was welded on , I can see where holes would have been used for the teeth ,, I think lol

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

Thanks for the great shots of your bucket ! Do you have a solid blade to put on when the teeth bar is removed ?

Hi Alc, no but there is a reinforcement welded to the bucket front edge.

I used the tooth bar to rip vines out of the trees when I first built my house, they're great for that.

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.100_0419.JPG 100_0420.JPG HPIM1888.JPG

 

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.
