New 1025 owner here-delivery scheduled for tomorrow!

Looking for advice for the best toothbar for my situation.

I have residual 4-6" rocks on/in the ground from a pond edging project. The rocks have settled a little so I can't just scrape them off the top, but digging will be minimal. Cleanup will probably take 1/2 hour to an hour. My other projects will be moving dirt. Which toothbar do you recommend? I've gone back and forth between a piranha, heavy hitch design. A rock bucket doesn't make sense for a smaller 1 time project.

Any suggestions?

Cant go wrong with either one but i think heavy hitch would handle rocks better

Agree with Heavy Hitch. I have the Piranha but I bought it specifically to tear up saplings and briars.

You can get the rocks off* with either, its likely to be easier with the longer tooth tool. But if your future plans are less playing with rocks and more playing in the bush, the Piranah bar is a wonderful tool. I swear that thing gets sharper with age and use.

It's been one of those days.,.........and I couldn't resist.............
*the edge of the pond, (just for clarity).....

Another vote for Heavy Hitch.
I have the Piranha and it's great for ripping through brush, but doesn't do much better than just the bucket for digging into the surface.

I have the heavy hitch tooth bar . It’s a very well made product. But I think it’s a bit overkill for the one series tractors . The teeth they use are the same ones that are used on full size loaders.

I’d agree that the Heavy Hitch style would be better for digging in dirt and rock. I bought my toothbar from Express Steel locates here in Indiana. They are about half the price of the Heavy Hitch. Seems well made and fit fine
Any concerns with drilling holes in your bucket? Honestly that's one of the big pluses in my book for HH. To be able to put it on easily and to not drill holes in expensive metal things (yes, I have Ken's hooks installed).

Left turn...... Getting a grapple? You'd be surprised how well it could do with this.

It’s a bucket you‘re going to dig rocks with so two small holes drilled in it for a toothbar isn’t too bad, especially after you drill the first one. Then you need to balance it with a hole on the other side! I guess if I really didn’t want to have holes if I took the toothbar off I’d just weld them closed and paint over it. A couple of small holes in the side of the bucket aren’t compromising its strength or usefulness. It’s a tool, not an all original classic tractor.
