On a brand new bucket. What kind of a job is it to fix? I don't see how it attaches.
I was digging out a root and BANG! I got ahold of an old steel pipe with the tip of the one tooth, I thought it was part of the root so I pulled on it pretty good. Where I am digging is where they dumped a lot of scrap years ago when they built a housing development.You should be able to bang it right off with a hammer. Bang a new one on and peen in the dipples.
BTW, I'd say, pretty impressive or faulty tooth.
Most of these small backhoes do not have the drive-in pins to hold the teeth onto the shanks (at least the ones I've changed). You just align a punch with the dimple and give it a whack (both sides).On the teeth for my toothbar, there are metal pins with rubber around them that hold the tooth onto the shank. I would guess it is the same for your bucket. You just need to locate the pins and hammer them out with a punch.
Just bought 2 on eBay. $20 delivered! :drinks:ToddM,
The last ones I bought were very reasonable. Do yourself a favor and buy two. The new ones will probably have a small circular spot on them where you need to peen them.
And yes the new one will probably be rather loose but with all the dirt that will get around it and pressure against it, it will setup like a rock.
Two actually, it was about three hours after dealer delivered it on an oak stump. They snapped right in half, I suspect they were defective. The dealer replaced them and then I pealed the weld off on the next digging evolution.Gwhunter,
You actually broke a shank off?
