    Default BX25D. Mod #1 and continued.

    I'm calling this mod #1 although I already got a few others done but I'll post on them later.
    This is a ripper tooth I fabricated. It's pretty well built from scrap around the shop. It weighs 36 lbs so that's not to bad considering the bucket weighs around 40 lbs. As you can see I also added a replaceable tooth. I figured it was better to do that rather than wear out the bottom of the tooth. I had planned to add the ripper tooth to the bucket but changed my mind because if I did it that way I would get the benefit from my thumb plus the change over from bucket to tooth is less than 5 minutes.

    I guess the pictures will tell the story. In one photo you'll see a small shaft I machined. I threaded each end to hold the pin keepers in place that way I wouldn't have to use a nut on the inside to fasten the bolt plus the solid 3/4 shaft will add some strength to the mount. I made the tooth out of 1 plate and cut it with the Miller plasma. I welded it with the Millermatic 350 P in pulse mode and I included some photo's of how the welds look. I should have taken a few more photo's but when I'm doing something like this I sometimes get so involved in it I loose track of time and forget about the camera
    Anyway you'll get the idea. I figured I'll use this on some tough ground and aiding in pulling tree roots. A big thank you to my lovely wife for designing and cutting the graphics.
    I add photo's of more mods as time will allow.

    Thanks man. I just load up a HVLP gun with some enamel and shoot it. it's almost a waste of paint to do it becuase once it hits the ground trhe paint will come off but hey, it was a Kodak moment

    I hear a ripper tooth like that works good on shearing roots, and is much better than a bucket for that task.

    Very cool work as always.

    Thanks Matt. That's the reason I needed a ripper. Glad you like it.
