    Which toothbar is best?

    I've been looking at various tooth bars & would like your opinion. Pirahna, ratchet rake, or one of the tooth type's. 1026 with 49" bucket.

    I'll be watching this one too, I would like a tooth bar for my 1026. I do know that a rachet rake is intended for a different application than a tooth bar, it is more of a rake bar and not intended for digging, at least that is what I understand of them.

    Yes, the RR is not really meant for digging like a toothbar is.

    When I break down and purchase one, it'll probably be the W.R.Long flat bottom tooth bar. It's relatively lightweight and flat on the bottom for smooth back-dragging. The teeth are replaceable as well. My JD dealer can get me one custom built and shipped for under $300.

    I do like the looks of that one. Most of the tooth bars that I have seen have a strap between the teeth on the top which makes the dirt stick in the bucket.

    I bought the Piranha tooth bar, total cost including shipping was right at $300.00. I have the 49 inch bucket and have used the bar extensively over the last two weeks moving dirt, shallow digging in clay and relocating 30 tons of number 5 gravel. I have been very pleased with the product and would recommend it.

    Does anyone know of a toothbar that is made to fit over the replaceable/bolt on cutting edge?
    I really don't like the idea of having to remove my edge everytime I want to use the bar.

    Piranha on 300 loader with 61" bucket

    A couple of weeks ago, I bit the bullet and ordered a Piranha bar for my loader bucket. It came well packaged and installation was pretty simple.

ID:	157906 Didn't follow directions as the bucket was not on the tractor or where I had electricals running around. It would be easier to mount while on the tractor as per instructions, particularly as the bucket and bar are heavy to move.

ID:	157930 It works just as good as it looks!

    Update- I'm pleased with the bar so far. It does pretty well moving small brush and bushes by just sliding it along the ground. I was real excited to find out it will grab into alanthus trees (Tree of Heaven) so that I can hit a tree up high and push it over, then turn the bucket down and pull the entire rootball out of soft ground. The only downside is it really makes me wish I had more hydraulics on the 790 as the relief valve was getting a workout when playing with the bar and trees. (shim kit is on order)
