The rest of mine shipped today. Guessing Saturday or Monday. Probably Monday I'll get everything.
Good idea to go ahead and order the ripper now...I have the trencher bucket and the quick coupler. Excellent products in concept, design and execution, very happy with them.
I will need the ripper mid summer, and reading this thread I decided to pull the trigger on it and get it in the queue well in advance.
I also ordered the BH dolly as I am tired of fighting to get the whole thing aligned, last night it took over half an hour and usually requires a spotter to get it at all correct.
That’s great! Glad to hear you’re happy with the ripper...Got all of my stuff today. Put the quick attach on the backhoe and the thumb and installed the pines on all the attachments like the 16" bucket, 6" bucket, and ripper. Tried the ripper on the very first stump that I tried with the 1025r that defeated me and had it out in 5 minutes with the ripper. Found another stump I missed and ripped it out with the ripper as well in probably 5 minutes. Seems to work pretty darn good! Got all my other stumps out with my 16" bucket.
Everything was packages good and everything seemed to fit pretty snug and so far happy! The quick connect is nice! Shipping could have been quicker, but I understand if they are getting slammed! Took 5, almost 6 weeks.
Ripper shipped today and got confirmation from FedEx that it was picked up and due for delivery Friday. :thumbup1gif:After 8yrs, I finally heard my wife say those precious words....."You can take that tree out". :yahoo:
Ordered the ripper today :thumbup1gif: Will update when I get any info from BX. Curious how long the wait will be.
About six weeks then. Seems to be the average then I think. That was the time for my stuff I believe.Ripper shipped today and got confirmation from FedEx that it was picked up and due for delivery Friday. :thumbup1gif:
I never called them nor sent them an email, just waited it out.
Still hadn't heard from BXpanded as of yesterday so I cancelled the Piranha bar and ordered the 54 inch Ratchet Rake. Just got an email that FedEx is delivering it day after tomorrow. That decision was partially based on lots of YouTube obsessing and finally concluding that the Ratchet Rake would probably be more suitable for the underbrush clearing that I have to do, which will entail a lot of back-dragging. Additionally, I plan on some extensive re-seeding and I think the RR will be a lot better at that. We'll see.I spent a lot of time trying to decide between the Piranha, the Heavy Hitch tooth, or a Ratchet Rake. I'll probably eventually need the ratchet rake, but I opted for the Piranha bar based on review and posts here. I'm sure it will be a great device...when it gets here....but it's been 10 days and I haven't heard a word. They may have great stuff, but if I have to wait this long I'm gonna have to look at alternatives until they can get their production act together. I'm pleased for their success, but their approach to dealing with that success doesn't work for me.
