    What Toothbar that's NOT a Piranha?

    For the JD quick attach 53" bucket.

    I know you guys like the Piranha, but I have small kids and that thing looks like injuries waiting to happen.

    Was thing WR Long's flat bottom but looks like the teeth are not well supported

    Oh oh, Iowa Farms Flat Tooth bar

    Maybe they are better now? Or their non flat bottom?

    Heavy Hitch is an option but I like the idea of side bolts instead of their set screws.

    Any other ones out there that are good?

    You think that any other toothbar is any less dangerous? All others have longer teeth..

    I have the WR Long with the flat bottom and it has done everything I have asked of it, with no issues from the teeth. It is well built.

    My toothbar is a CATERPILLAR,,,



    It is a flame cut piece of cutting edge,,, with some parts welded on it.

    I could fabricate one of these,,, I think.

    Two bolts hold it on,,, easy to remove.

    Piranah Muzzle?

    You could park it "teeth down" if parked in gravel or dirt and or laying flat bottom if paked on hard surface. Thats what I do so I don't snag an ankle or shin on it but I do that with everything. I have a piranah bar and they work great as you've already heard. They look intimidating,I don't know that it would be any more or any less prone to cause injury than any other toothbar?
    I guess you could slide a piece of foam pipe insulation or one of those big fat bright "swim noodles" with a slit lengthways over the teeth when not in use,kinda like sheathing a sharp knife or a muzzle for an unpredictable dog.
    I used to slide those bright colored foam swim noodles over the horseshoe stakes sticking out of the ground in case of fast moving dogs or careless children/people.
    good luck on the toothbar hunt. There are lot of effective styles out there but i think the Piranah is quite popular for good reason.

    Keep your wits about you and pull that trigger.

    Yes, the Piranha tooth bar is sharp. I honestly though I'd be able to cut paper with it, when it was new. The fact that a person could really get hurt by it weighs so heavily in the back of my mind that it's never been a problem. By that, I mean, if you have one, you're always sure to put the teeth down in a manner that no one could possibly get hurt. You teach yourself to handle it just like you would a gun or anything else that could impose a danger in our everyday lives.

    Unlike other toothed bars, the progressive angle of the teeth leave no blunt edges to impede the digging capabilities. It truly is an impressive design with benefits you won't get from old-fashioned, excavator-type teeth bars.

    I have two loader buckets. The 49" that came with the tractor is the one I have the tooth bar on, and a 61" bucket. The 49" stays safely parked against a fence and the 61" is my "daily driver" since I'm generally just pushing snow, hauling tools or moving dirt around. When it's time to dig or haul stone, out comes the 49". But you've got to be careful with the 61", also. It's so wide that you find yourself smacking into things with it. The outside corner of my garage can testify to that.

    If I knew the leading edge of the bucket would always be down when parked that would help. But with the curved bottom of the JD buckets if you wiggle the hydraulics after shut down it tends to lift that front edge up off the ground.

    I have the tools and skills to build my own....but I would like to bolt up and go as free time and workspace are very limited these days.
