    Default Cutting Edge on bucket

    Has anyone bolted a cutting edge on thier front bucket? I see i have holes for one on my bucket. But no replaceable edge came on my tractor there is one on my rear blade that i really like it can be flipped over so you can use both sides. I was just wondering i only have 10 hrs on tractor but hated to wear down front of bucket.

    I put a bolt on REZLOH edge on my H.D. 6' kubota bucket but don't use it because I never take my Loader Buddy off.

    I bought a bolt on cutting edge for my kubota 6' HD bucket but I put a tooth bar on and do not use the bolt on cutting edge. I should have listened to the dealer who said I really didnt need it. He was right

    Loader buddy, cutting edge, or tooth bar. It really depends on what different uses you have for your FEL bucket the biggest share of the time. Good thing there is a choice.

    I put the cutting edge on my bucket, it saves wear and tear on the edge and reinforces the entire edge.

    I am glad I didnt purchase the tooth bar, the cutting edge seems to work almost as well, and I think the clay here would just make amess most of the time on the teeth on the tooth bar

    The dirt I move isn't that hard that I needed a tooth bar but I can see for some that it's a good add-on and the teeth take most of the punishment and save the actual welded on cutting edge of the bucket. I saw wear on my bucket's cutting edge and contacted Wallace. For a very reasonable price, which included shipping via UPS, he sent me a reversable bolt on cutting edge with the bolts much cheaper than I could find locally. I have a Kioti CK30hst and even checked with the Bobcat dealer which was way more. It's a good hard piece of steel showing very little wear after much use. For my uses, the bolt on edge was the way to go.

    I installed one on my CT235. I bought from my dealer for my 68" bucket.

    My Zetor came with a bolted on edge. I had planned on getting a tooth bar immediately to help with digging, but decided to try digging without it. I dug about a 4 foot deep hole in red clay without much problem. Not sure it the cutting edge had anything to do with it or not, or if a toothbar would do any better, but it worked well with just the cutting edge. It also appears that the cutting edge really strengthens the bucket edge. I will probably still add a toothbar at some point, but it is no longer as high of a priority since it works pretty well without it. I am not sure of the cost of a cutting edge, but since the holes are there I would go ahead and add one on if they aren't too expensive.
