    Heavy Hitch Toothbar Install

    If you don't have one yet, do yourself a favor and pick one up. We have a lot of bushes to remove this year, so I'm looking forward to abusing the soil!

    On a side note, not much of a demo since the ground was somewhat soft, so we'll post the bushes after we get the garden planted.

    In the video, I can't tell the difference between digging with the toothbar and without. Do you find that it digs substantially differently with it? I'm considering getting one.

    It makes a huge difference on ground that has not been disturbed in a while. Our garden at the time we shot this, had not been turned over yet, however several loads of chicken manure were spread throughout the winter, and it was very soft.

    As soon as I start ripping out our bushes, we will have another video. You can also tell a huge difference how easy it enters hard ground compared to just a flat surface. Tractor Time with Tim has a video of using the HH Toothbar, I just didn't see one of the actual install.

    Following. I have also been considering getting one of these. Can't decide between the Heavy Hitch or the Piranha. They are different enough in design that for a couple of my jobs I think the Piranha would be better, and for a couple others I think the HH style would be better.

    I look forward to your video of removing bushes to see how it works...

    And yes, I have seen the Tractor Time with Tim video...that was helpful...

    As soon as we get our garden planted, that's the next job on my honey-do-list. We put over 260 hours on the X590 we have in one season, so I'm trying to spread the hours more evenly since we added the 1025R.

    Nice job, ISPTrooper! Thanks for making the video. I've been thinking of getting one of these as well. I have an area out back that I want to strip back about 20' x 30' of grass and dig down about 24" to build a patio. This looks like it will make the job much easier.

    Oh this toothbar would be perfect for that! If you didn't catch the end of my video, they offer a discount for public safety and military!!

    Bolt on Hooks is another addition I couldn't go without. Both U.S.A. companies also. We take pride in not only buying U.S. made products whenever possible, we even found a trailer company here in Indiana to support!

    Curious if they offer regular teeth instead of the two pointers?

    As of now they don't. These are great for ripping out tree/bush roots. We stripped 6 stumps after a backhoe ripped them out, and it did great....just so happens I didn't have someone around to take video of it.

    Does that include FD? If so, how does one get this discount and how much is it?
