    Default toothbar vs ez landscaper

    was just ready to pull trigger on toothbar today
    and came across old post on ezlandscaper from H&H sales.

    was going to order toothbar from markham, but the landscape
    bar looks more usefull. can any one give me any feed back
    on toothbar vs landscape bar.
    thanks

    Only reference to the ezlandscaper I could find was from Henro and said:

    "I think the H&H EZlandscaper bar has a tooth about every four inches...so just about whatever you end up doing will help a lot and be satisfactory I bet."

    Unless you have a specific need for closer spacing on the teeth I would buy the Markham Welding toothbar. I suspect the "ezlandscaper" is just another name for toothbar. I would imagine Markham could put more teeth on if you wanted, certainly would not be a big deal to weld on another tooth or 2.

    Maybe Henro will jump in here since he seems to be the only one who have ever heard of the "ezlandscaper".It may just have been a figment of his imagination [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I cannot speak from personal experience about the EZ Landscaper, but . . .

    Keep in mind that both the landscaper and standard toothbar from H&H Sales includes the V wear plates. I like my H&H Sales toothbar a lot. But it also costs a good deal more than the Markham toothbar. Because you are relatively close to H&H's home, they may have an advantage on shipping.

    Both make good products.

    One thing to keep in mind about the Easy Landscaper with the greater number of teeth, the amount of ground pressure per tooth is reduced. This defeats the purpose of a tooth bar a bit - especially with a lighter tractor such as your BX.

    I'm sure the Easy Landscaper works great for back scraping and such. I just don't think it would penetrate hard ground as well as a bar with fewer teeth - if that is your intended purpose.

    I'm pretty certain Scrounger has the EZ Landscaper. My Markham is in transit right now, it was quite a bit cheaper.

    Matt - your thoughts?

    I was sent a EZ Lzandscaper for some work at a locakl Boy Scout canmpground. I've been using it for awhile now and I think its a better option than the regular toothbar. I can clean brush on a campsite with ease, back drag the ground to level out a site, and I can still dig in the hardpack with ease too.

    That argument about fewer teeth makes sense if you look at the number penetration points, but in real life I'm never noticed that at all.

    In my opinion the advantages of it make is better choice for me anyway and what we've been using it for. I would have no concern about it and would highly recommend it.

    Thanks for everyones input , it's greatly appreciated,

    the ez landscaper is tempting , but the price will probably
    send me to purchase a markham toothbar. h&h sales says sugg retail for
    a 46" landscape bar is 429.00 plus shipping.
