    RE-Toothbars-the dealer I picked up my used YM336d (33 engine hp Yanmar, 4wd, FEL (2800 breakout, 1500lbs maximum lift)) recommended against putting a tooth bar on, and said they were only for "bigger tractors"-is this the case, or simply an old "wives tale"?

    Thank you in advance,

    Old wives tale. I have a 36 hp tractor, with similar specs on the FEL. It is amazing the differance the toothbar makes when digging in grass covered or hard packed earth.

    POPPYCOCK: i have a b2400(24hp) and the toothbar really helps for loosening hard dirt, digging and moving brush only thing is have to be careful if u snag a deep root and u are to hard on the joystick, will raise u off groung real quick[img]/w3tcompact/icons/eyes.gif[/img]

    <font color=blue>I am clearing a new yard area (about 1.5 ac) and most of it is pretty clean but there are a few Tag Alder tree stumps (anyone know what those are.....%$&amp;*%$ blasted weed trees) anywhere from 3" to 10". </font color=blue>
    I think they are related to the birch.
    Don't cut them! They have very shallow roots and tend to grow along the wetland. I simply push them over and then hook some part of the roots with the FEL
    and out they come. They are no good for firewood and rot down pretty fast.
