    Default Got my new Markham Tooth Bar mounted

    Finally got time to mount the new Markham tooth bar. had them make it a little narrower than normal. i wanted to weld the gusset plates to the inside. 1/4 inch plates worked perfect. I thought the 1/2 inch plates thay sent was a little over kill. i wanted a clean look on the outside of the bucket. I did not use the bolts that came with it. i used the large grade 8 bolts from the big JD tooth bar. i have not even put it in the dirt yet. and i know i am going to like it much better. i got where it just slips off with ease. i had to pry the JD bar off and beat it on with a hammer. and it weighed a ton. way over kill. this one is heavy. but not to heavy to carry around. it looks well made. The JD bar only had 6 teeth. this one has 7 teeth. thay are a plesure to work with.
    I think i am going to like it. here is a few pics.....

    Yes i just got it.. and yes i got another one made by JD it is to heavy. its to heavy for a 3000 seris. and it has 6 teeth. this one i have now has 7 and is easier to work with. i think i will like it better. the JD bar has teeth the size of a 963 Cat. way over built for compact tractors of any size...

    Chris, that new toothbar really looks good on there, and you did a great job with the install as usual. It looks much better matched to the loader than the JD one did.

    Thanks Chuck...
    I agree , its a much better fit than the JD bar was. it looks like it should be on a compact tractor , and not a bulldozer...

    Was that original a standard toothbar that JD makes specifically for your bucket... or just one the JD dealer came up with that happened to fit? Maybe a JD skidsteer toothbar???

    I agree. Excellent installation job. Did you pay extra for an additional tooth? Or are 7 teeth standard in your size?

    Dougster , it is a JD toothbar for a 61 inch bucket. thay also make a 73. I do feel there for a skid steer. the bar is way over built. its more than you need on a 4000 seris compact tractor.

    as for the markham. yes i paid 26$ more for the extra tooth. it puts the teeth closer together. i think it will help digging in hard ground. also the teeth are alot sharper. the JD teeth are very blunt. i feel it was made for something with alot more power than even a 40 Hp tractor...
