    Pirahna Tooth Bar + Forks?

    First off I want to praise all the posters to this forum!!! This forum has been helpful in SO many ways for this city boy who now lives in the country with a tractor...Whoo Hooo...

    My Question is : Does anyone have or know of forks that can fit over the pirahna bar w/o having to take it off?

    I assume you're talking about the clamp on style that fits over the lip of the bucket. I've given my opinion on these before and several disagree but here it is anyway. I wouldn't take a pair as a gift. If much weight at all is put on you'll bend the bucket, you have no visibility, and the weight is to far forward. I think you're much better off saving up for separate attachment like Artillion's pallet forks.

    Let me ask this - what are you trying to carry? I've found the PTB pretty good with the bucket curled at holding long trees in place that are loaded crossways in the bucket.

    That being said - removal of the PTB is only 2 bolts and it comes off in less than 5 minutes if needed. I agree that a set of forks on the front of a bucket would REALLY limit your lifting power due to the leverage of the weight being that far in front of the pivot point.

    Gizmo,

    I have the 1025R... I am wanting to move brush and some cut trees, etc. Nothing too giant.. I do like the idea of the Artillian forks.. just didnt know if I would really use it that much to warrant buying that!!

    Ivfman,

    I've found that I don't use the bucket much at all. Once I got the Artillian forks, I use them for almost everything. I got some free pallets off of Craig's list, and put a lot of different items on them. So, I don't have to physically carry or drag stuff anymore. Having forks and pallets changes the way you think about all kinds of tasks.

    Pallet forks works better we all agree But if all you have is clamp on pallet forks depends were the clamps will clamp on bucket PTB is easy to remove if you think damage /stress will happen Not all clamp on forks are same - i would avoid using heavy duty type best are light duty 1000/1500lbs leight weight cheap ones for your tractor

    I think a set of the clamp on skid shoes for the bucket with the extensions would be a nice cheap solution to what you're looking for.

    Although like I said - I've done that same kind of work with my PTB.....with great success. If I'm moving a TON of brush, I just cut a few of the 1-2" diameter branches to about 3-4' in length and jam them under the brush in the bottom of the bucket pointing out of the bucket to create temporary extensions - this helps when cleaning up downed trees, etc.
