    Word of caution about Piranha tooth bar

    First of all, I love the tooth bar. It is awesome. Digging is much easier, and uprooting small saplings is a snap.

    Please curl your bucket flat when lower the bucket. I clocked my ankle, at the fibula lower end, on the tooth bar. Went to the bone, and left me with an inch long gash. On antibiotics now, as my foot swelled up some.

    A great addition to your bucket, that needs a little respect.

    Sorry Binford!
    That must of hurt. I have been discussing this with my wife before your post about how I stumble and fall easier than I used to and I am afraid of doing that to me. I'm going to spend some extra money on a different brand that one of the other guys has or put a link up for. I have a lil nephew that I plan on having around Betsy a lot so it makes the decision to be a lil bit safer for him too.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    About stumbling or falling. My girlfriend was just on me about getting in the shower. She said get a shower before I get home from the store. Told her I'll wait till she gets back. Said with my luck I'll fall in the shower and drown. I said because of the way and frequency that I fall. Every time I go to move the shower curtain I feel like I'm tugging at the grim reapers robe. lol

    DANG, another "been there, done that, another scar" for Hydro too! Got lazy one day and left it on the bucket while loading some firewood in it by hand... spun around with some splits and got bit just below the knee. This tool is aptly named! No stitches though, shop rag and some of that wonderful silver tape until the blood stopped.

    As a fool who has worked in factories over forty years I have seen and experienced many reminders that our skin offers little more resistance to cutting and penetration than that of a peach. There is a lot to look out for to avoid injury in the world. I hope you heal quickly and avoid infection.

    Ouch hope the infection is not bad. Bucket edges up's and hitches in the sleeve are both painful. I never thought about the sharp tooth bar.

    I have been lucky to avoid the tooth bar so far, but that damn ROPS has got me a couple times! Hope you heal up soon and wear that scar proudly!.

    My ex FIL fell in the yard (rolling the Chraftsman tractor might have been involved) and broke something (forgot what) but it left him unable to walk. He eventually drug himself into his big shed used as a garage. With his Dakota truck inside their was not a lot of extra room to get the passenger door open. Eventually he gets to his cell phone in the glove box. Kind of like a snake slithering. Then he finally was able to call for help. His other problem is the whole place is on a giant hill. His son lived at the top of this hill. So he or the wife would have had to drive by eventually. However that was still hours away.
    He was hospitalized for a few days from what I remember. The ex was at the hospital most of the night.
