    Bucket Spade is a good tool....but maybe not that good.

Is there any warranty expectations when the product fails on first use? Please let me know what remedy is available

    There was a fast response! And in its entirety:

    They are crimped on teeth and hooking tree roots will pull them off.

    So I guess I know all I need to know about Woods Equipment.

That should hold it indefinitely. IF you should ever wear out a tooth, you just drill out the weld metal and slip it off.

    I would go ahead and do the remaining shanks the same way while I was in the repair mode.

    That is how my tips are installed on my LMC boxblade. They call them "changeable" and the technique used to change them is a grinder to the weld, slide a new tip on, hit the holes in the side with weld...

    I've owned this scratch of land for 5 years but only owned the tractor for a month or so. So I spent a lot of time with tractor envy watching what others can accomplish. And I've seen some pretty tore up box blades. So I thought I should really step up buying a BB so I'd only have to buy one.

    6' foot blade, 6 scarifiers, 700 lbs, stout as could be, all USA made: I thought the Woods was top of the line. Certainly was in price! It did everything I was expecting for my size of tractor. So maybe I should just get over the toothless feature. As was said, I probably pulled them off backing up. Live & learn.

    But when buying my next implement, there is no reason to look at Woods first given their dismissive response to my query.

    I've lost shanks/scarifiers off box scrapers and never really thought much about it; maybe I need to check my LP out to see how they are attached. I've never owned a Woods box scraper, but we have had a Woods back blade for a lot of years and two rotary cutters without complaint, no local dealers here now though.
