Edge Tamers with Piranha Toothbar installed

Some, myself included, have wondered whether or not Edge Tamers would fit on a bucket with a Piranha Toothbar installed. Well..... They fit nicely.

Good to know! Now, the next question is if a Ratchet Rake will fit over a Piranha Bar. I may try this one myself in a day or two and report back.

This thread gets seen a lot because folks often wonder if the Edge Tamers are compatible with the Piranha Bar, which steveontheridge nicely demonstrated (saving me countless email responses :D). Another customer recently pointed out a risk to such an arrangement though, so I thought I'd share. Normally, when you tighten your Edge Tamers down on a bare bucket, the bolt will fit flat against the bottom inside of the bucket, for a secure fit. However, with something like the Piranha Bar which extends outward, it could be that it gets tightened against a beveled surface, which in this case was a weld. This customer tried to lift a 450lb box blade with his Edge Extenders in this situation, and since the bolt was not securely fastened to a flat surface they slid off! Thankfully no one was hurt. The images here are of how it was attached.

Now, this is a Mahindra bucket, and steveontheridge's pictures above show this not to be a problem on his JD, but I wanted to at least show this so folks were aware. I'm sure tightening on a bevel is OK for lighter loads, but please don't lift something heavy without a secure fit! As you can imagine, when we designed the Edge Tamers we didn't have toothbars in mind, and buckets come in many shapes and sizes, so I just want to make sure folks are safe out there.

OK, there's my cautionary good deed for the day...
