    I voted based on what I own.

    Each design has different strengths IMO.

    Either will give you better performance.

    Where I use mine I am dealing with roots and brush.

    I would thing that the traditional "tooth" would work better in hard and/or rocky ground.

    My P-Bar does a good job.

    Ray I had the Heavy Hitch version and it was a beast. What I liked about it was the tooth length and spacing. You could easily control how deep you wanted to dig. I was able to skim topsoil to widening a storm swell. Just remember to crank the bolts down with a large crescent wrench. You don’t want it to fall off and then drive over it. Yikes!!! LOL

    You nailed it. I also bought the Piranha bar and really like it but if I was just digging I would get a traditional tooth bar. It just depends on what your primary needs are.

    This is exactly my line of thought. I think the Piranha bar is a better design for cutting through brush and roots. If I was doing most of my working in wide-open fields and just concerned with rocks I probably would have gone with something with a more traditional tooth.

    I went with the WR Long Flat tooth bar. I can dig and still plow with it. I wanted the most versatile one I could find. The piranha has too many sharp edges for me. I don't have much brush to cut anymore and with my new tripping and falling skills and a very young nephew I didn't want to take a chance on someone getting cut. If I was just digging all the time I would have gone the traditional way and got the HH. You have to decide what is best for you.. here is a pic of mine

    Piranha Bar has been very effective in my wooded lot. 54" on a 2025r.

    My vote also although from reviews and comments here I believe both are good and would work well for anyone.

    Like everyone else it depends on what you want to use it for. I went with the BX Expanded piranha bar. The main reasons were...
    1-It protects the cutting edge of the bucket.
    2-The way it bolts on the bucket.
    3-You can back drag without ridges being made by it.
    4-It seems to grab bushes and vines when wanting to clear them out along the whole length of it.
    5-Easy to clean.
    6-Stays pretty sharp.
    7-No teeth to lose.

    All that being said I wouldn't mind having the WR that wentonbrown got. It looks like it would do most everything I mentioned only it has teeth for digging in rocky ground. And I have rocky ground. What I like about it over the HH is the same reason as the first 2 reasons I mentioned above. For that reason you should have added that to the list.
