    Lots of guys tack a steel bar across excavator teeth to make it a temporary cleanup bucket. That may be a solution.

    Bucket

    I agree that you can make one very easily. I have the large 36 grave bucket and made a smooth edge for it. Had a 1/4 by 6 flat stock on the bottom. Then welded a side piece along the bucket side up about 8 inches on each side and welded to the bottom, and used plow bolts to hold it in place on the side on 3 places. Then the laid a 1/4 by 4 piece over the teeth. Let is over hang the bottom piece by a inch and welded the two together. Sharpened the edge a bit and worked great for 10 years. I got the idea from a contractor who does a lot of water main and sewer line work. They had a similar piece on there Cat hoe.

    Buy an 8" bucket from Deere (I think they make one..unless it's a 10 inch) and remove the teeth. Bucket has a straight edge that the teeth lock on to and bolt down. Did it on my 12" a few times.
