    If you can weld, you could always weld a piece of round bar to the top of the existing bolt head to create a T-handle that would allow you to attach and remove them without tools.

    FWIW, we don't do the T-handle thing because you'll be taking material into the bucket, which could then move against the T-handle, defeating its purpose. I'd offer that unless you want to physically dig into the ground or scrape a surface completely off with the lip of your bucket, there aren't many reasons they shouldn't be on all the time. In the grand scheme of a project, the minute or two of install/removal time of these should not be a factor. Everyone is different, but I can count on one hand the number of times I put them on or take them off all year.

    I've got 3 cordless impacts, I can spare keeping one on the tractor

    I like keeping near the garage door clean down to the asphalt, as it is now my Jeep can't fit with the roof rack. I'm going to be making some low profile roof cross bars in hopes of making it fit, but it's still going to be close. I could probably keep it good enough but wouldn't really know for sure until I tried it.

    BTW, have you guys thought about selling on Amazon? We're cashbpoor right now but I have loads of Hilton Honors points I would probably buy a set right now if you did:-).

    Hi rcguymike,

    Regarding backdragging, the amount of snow that would be left should be minimal, literally a few scoops with a shovel near the garage door after and done, especially in comparison to what you could do with the bucket on its own.

    Regarding Amazon, yeah we've thought about it, but at the moment we can't keep them in stock, we are on rolling backorders. Amazon would be none to happy with us. Once we have production more sustained, we'll see. We have some thoughts on that, but it will take time.

    Thanks,

    Perhaps a piece of barn floor mat attached to the back of the bucket? Aligned such that when the bucket is curled all the way back and lowered all the way down, it is just long enough to scrape the ground? Then you can cleanly back drag snow in the same manner you would back drag gravel or dirt with the back of the bucket.

    Thanks for the feedback! I will just have to see how winter goes for now and then maybe I'll just have to buy some to try it. I'm sure I could resell if they don't work out.

    I haven't looked into it too closely but would selling 3rd party, not necessarily fulfilled by Amazon work? Or do they have stocking rules?

    I'm hoping to get within a few inches of the door, I think back dragging with the bucket rolled all of the way back would be about the same as the edge tamers and it seems to work ok for dirt.

    I'm planning on parking the tractor in the garage so one side of the driveway won't be a problem... maybe if I switch which side I park on that might make the difference.

    Lol good one😂 I have plenty of those... actually narrower, any time the snow caster won't work you aren't using a shovel much wider than 20".

    At the moment we're on backorder, so selling them isn't the issue, making them fast enough and of the right quality is. FBA isn't a great option because they're quite heavy, and we'd have to pass all that expense back to the customer. Also, the Edge Tamers sell quite seasonally, exactly at the time when Amazon ramps up their storage and fulfillment costs for Christmas. I'm sure that's more than you wanted to know, but hey, that's why these forums exist, right?

    Ultimately, though, it still comes down to Amazon doesn't like vendors who run out of stock, so we have to make sure that cannot possibly happen, and we're not there at the moment.

    Hope this makes sense!
