    Ouch! Broke a Tooth

    On a brand new bucket. What kind of a job is it to fix? I don't see how it attaches.

    You should be able to bang it right off with a hammer. Bang a new one on and peen in the dimples.

    BTW, I'd say, pretty impressive or faulty tooth.

    I was digging out a root and BANG! I got ahold of an old steel pipe with the tip of the one tooth, I thought it was part of the root so I pulled on it pretty good. Where I am digging is where they dumped a lot of scrap years ago when they built a housing development.

    Thanks Gizmo, I'm taking it off now.

    On the teeth for my toothbar, there are metal pins with rubber around them that hold the tooth onto the shank. I would guess it is the same for your bucket. You just need to locate the pins and hammer them out with a punch.

    Yup, those are "peened" or "crimp on's" as opposed to the pined ones Andy mentioned.
    I found heating the tabs made it easier to remove the old one and install the new ones.

    On the mini-ex I used frequently (was my wifes cousin's), they (the operators) where still always loosing teeth frequently and not replacing them-and then wore down the shanks so much new teeth wouldn't stay on at all. I ended up replacing the cutting edge and all the shanks/teeth with the pin-on style and they never lost a tooth again.

    Most of these small backhoes do not have the drive-in pins to hold the teeth onto the shanks (at least the ones I've changed). You just align a punch with the dimple and give it a whack (both sides).

    Ok, it's a pengo tuf-go tooth that doesn't have a pin. I don't see how hitting it with a hammer is gonna work. Looks like I need to pry out the peen'd in area?

    Yes, pry out the peened in area to remove the tooth from the shank-the dimple Giz refereed to is actually on the shank. When you get the new tooth (get and keep a spare or two also) you peen the tab into the dimple-a punch or dull chisel helps...its thick metal and tough to do, use heat (like a propane or acetyliene torch) if you have it to make the job easier.

    I's ask the dealer for at least one free, but buy more to have on hand. Digging without the tooth will wear the soft/cast shank quickly and they or not easy to replace. BTDT, GTTS.

    Got it. Used a pry bar against the bucket to pry it off. Those things are made to stay on! How much do they cost?
