    Default BUCKET RATCHET RAKE

    Looks like a ratchet rake built as a bucket.

    Tach-N-Go, Loader Buddy, small loader Quick attach and attachments

    Anyone know price?

    Weird. How the heck do you use the teeth on the top? For pulling vines out of trees? Seems like a lot of fabrication effort for a bucket that can't hold very much.

    It should do the same thing a ratchet rake will do, and use it as a bucket at any time.

    How about root rake.

    It could probably be built with more throat length, or any size.

    I see lots of potential there.

    Think of this. Put another tooth bar on top of the bottom teeth and a hyd motor to slide it back and forth, like a sickle mower. HUM, should I make something like this?

    If your bucket linkage allows, you can put the top teeth into the dirt. This may be why the "floor" of the bucket is short.

    The "teeth bars" are "reversible." This may mean they can be reversed to a smooth edge, or reversed to top or bottom edge of the bucket. The top could be a handy place to store your spare teeth, and increase the bucket capacity a bit.

    That's what I was thinking. The top of the bucket doesn't put the loader in the best position for any type of ground engagement. Some folks will find an excuse to build anything I guess. Maybe the next product offering will be a bolt-on tooth bar for the top of buckets?
