Hi troops,
Having had difficulty digging up turf, I decided to buy a tooth bar. Searched the internet, found a lot of them and decided to go with the least expensive one which is from Vevor and decided to give it a try. It was shipped quickly to me from the distributor in GA, it arrived today and I installed it. I still need to drill two more bolt holes in the bucket sides and may decide to drill some thru the bar and the bottom of the bucket. In some of the reviews were comments about the bar being bent. With all the base teeth being welded on one side of the bar, it is normal to get a bend/curve in it. With a heavy hammer I was able to get it in position easily. Check out the pics.:cool:

Very nice Bob. I especially like the way the way the teeth clip under the bucket. I haven't found a need form them yet, but I know what kind to look for when I do. Thanks for the post Bob.

Keep the Peace ✌

That thing is great looking. It's easy to imagine that helping quite a bit. I'd love to hear feedback on how much difference it actually makes on hard pack.

Hi Bob and group,
I'm anxious to get digging with it! A while back I removed some turf for a horseshoe court and had a tough time with it, friend plans 2 more courts. I increased the setting on the travel relief valve which helped some but not enough. I was talking pics to post and my wife came out in the garage and commented 'taking pics before it is dirty, you are getting old!' We had a chuckle! I'm going to be working with a contractor friend raising up a garage and digging out for a footing and short foundation and not enough room for the bucket on his much larger machine, I hope the 6018L with teeth works!:cool: Starts on Monday, but I will give it a try here beforehand!

Something not quite right there. The teeth should lay near flat on the ground when the bucket is level. You don't want any part of the teeth under the bucket as it renders it useless for levelling [unless you use only the heel] or digging where you want a flat bottom for concrete ect.

Yes, the teeth are partly under the bucket bottom. I'm going to rework the bar so I can easily remove it at the job site and have a flat bottom bucket and also be able to install the forks when needed. I ain't gonna buy another loader although it has entered my old brain at times!
Dundee222 would like this, I do have two sets of bag pipes, red and green, port and starboard!!!:cool::p:D

The teeth have a groove in the back where they slide over the bucket lip. So they have to protrude past the bottom. I think the idea is to (easily) remove the tooth bar for smoothing operations.

Do you have a part # and price for this tooth bar? I just got my digit 188 and am still working on getting the leaky cylinders repacked so i can use it without leaving a trail of oil everywhere. I will definitely need something like this for the dirt in my area. This may save me alot of internet searching. :)

Hi troops,
I figured out a way to be able to remove the tooth bar at the job site if needed. When I make the modifications I will take some pice and post them. Meanwhile, I need to move this tractor to the job site today or tomorrow and as my cargo trailer is out on loan to a friend, I'm in a bind as the trailer that I can borrow is an open 5x9 and my 6018L with tooth bar and weight box is 11' long. I think that it will fit if I remove the weight box which weighs 500 LBS, so I need to get creative!:cool:

Thanks. I have a 648 with a 40" bucket. I didnt realize the 6018 had a 48". I have had no luck finding a 40".

I haven't yet had the chance to dig with it so far. As the teeth stick out beyond the bucket lip, I have been able to pick up larger pieces of stone and concrete. Bear in mind that I have a weight box on the 3 point hitch that weighs about 500 LBS, liquid filled rear tires with rubber tire chains.:cool:

Hi 74 _case_onan,
This is the only option that I have found for a 40" wide bucket.:cool:
