    Thanks George, I'll give them a try.

    Scruffy, congratulations on going platinum. Your contributions here have been superb.

    As a reward, I can offer you my set of old steak knives. They may be no good for stabbing bags of concrete, but maybe you can rig them up as scarifiers.

    Glenn, Thanks!
    But I will have to forego the steak knives. They might last long enough to scratch a tic-tac-toe on the ground, but with all the rocks around here, that would be stretching things a great deal! On top of that, all my girls have grown up and have produced seven girls of their own! Keep telling them to get the ducks lined up, but listening was never their strong suit! The only two kids not married are the two boys, 28 and 12.
    Thanks for the thought though!

    Quality Farm & Country has them in their catalog (1-800-828-3276). You might also check around. A rental store in my town also sells implements and has them stocked on the shelf. I think the scarifiers are $20 and the replaceable teeth are $4 or $5.

    OK, here's a newbie question.

    The tractor I just got came with an old Gannon Box scraper with removable scarifiers. It has V clips that I guess are supposed to secure the scarifiers. How are the V clips used? How are they inserted and removed?

    I tried putting them in behind the scarifier shanks with the point of the V down and pushing them in until the indent near the top of the V engaged the shank support slot (it is a tight fit).

    But then the only way I could figure out to remove them was to push them through the rest of the way to where they fall out onto the ground - (actually I had to fish one out from inside the shank support frame) - there isn't enough of the V sticking out to be able to squeeze it and pull it out.

    Made me frustrated enough with it that I don't want to bother with it anymore.

    Thanks.

    Bill

    Bill,
    On my box blade the shanks have slots cut in the back side. These slots fit over the back part of the hole that the shank fits into. The clip is then inserted in front of the shank.

    Roy:

    The slots are in the front of my shanks so the clip goes in the back - opposite of yours.

    V up or V down?
    Is there a detent near the top of your V clip? Do you engage that with the slot?
    How do you get them out?

    Thanks

    Bill

    Bill, my Gannon box blade also has the notches on the scarifier shanks toward the front. There is a flat bar running inside the entire length of the scarifier housing that is operated by a lever on one end. When the bar is parallel to the ground, it forces the shanks forward so they can't fall out. Flipping the lever down folds the flat bar against the back of the housing, allowing room to adjust/remove the shanks.

    Bill,
    My clips are welded to a short piece of chain and the chain is welded to the frame of the box blade. The box blade frame should slide into the slot of the shank. That should leave room in the back of your shank to wedge the clip down in between the shank and the box blade frame. This should keep enough pressure on the shank so that it will not move backwards. One time a clip fell out while I was going across the pasture with the box blade raised and the clip bounced out and the shank fell out. I did not notice it until the next day but fortunately I found the shank. When I raise the box blade so that the shanks are off the ground I just pull the chain and the clip comes out.

    Thanks for the idea, Roy!
    A chain would certainly give me the gripping point on the clip that I don't have now. I'll see if there isn't some way to rig that up - my neighbor has a welder.
