    Default Feedback on Toothbar on 61" Bucket

    I have a 4310 with a 61" HD Bucket. I just purchased a JD toothbar for it and when I went to install it I found the fit to be way too tight. To the point it wouldn't fit. I got my grinding out and ground down the plate steel that bolts to the side of the bucket. I also ground down some welding burrs on the corners of the bucket. The plate steel is ~1/2" so taking a little off isn't such a big deal. Now the toothbar fits with a small gap (1/32" gap on both sides). My guess is that JD is marketing a toothbar that is for the skidsteers because the install instructions has there skidsteer models all over it. I did check the JD P/N and it was correct for my bucket plus I saw the toothbar mounted on a 61" bucket a few months before ordering. My concern is when I go to remove it how difficult it will be because of the small gap. Has anyone had to grind there toothbar to make it fit there HD bucket? I must say that this toothbar is very HD and a little overkill for my tractor. I think it weighs in at 120lbs. Works great though!!!

    Thanks

    I have the same setup on my HD 61" bucket, and it was tighter than a welldiggers #**. I have not ground mine down, but in order to remove it for winter plowing, I had to raise the bucket up and angle it downward...then applying liberal amounts of a handsledge got the toothbar to drop off (watch your toes). It's actually easier to take off than to put back on.

    Yep, that's the same one I have. During the install I had to dry fit it a couple times before I drilled the holes. I did also raise the bucket and toggled the joystick and it "fell" right out.

    I have the same bucket, with a bolt on cutting edge, on my 790 and am thinking about this tooth bar. Did your bucket have a bolt on cutting edge and you removed it?

    I have the 61" HD bucket. It has holes all the way across the cutting edge. I figured these were for a bolt on cutting edge. I'm guessing you could pull off your cutting edge and install the toothbar. JC

    My cutting edge is held on with 10 bolts. The bucket seems to have an edge but it isn't very sharp.

    HD buckets use bolt on cutting edges. Shouldnt he have gotten one with the bucket, or are they a seperate part you have to buy?
