Piranha bar for me had it 4 years never taken it off.

It grabs small trees and rips them roots and all out of the ground.

Does fine when used for leveling and excellent when digging.

If it we stolen today I would have one on the way right away.

Turned my L4600 into a digging machine and like I said does great clearing small trees.

I believe you will like it.

Took me 30 minutes to install and I could remove it in 10 minutes, takes longer to find a socket.

Good luck.

Jay

I had a skidsteer and put a ratchet rake on it for specific uses. It worked great for a lot of tasks like clearing & removing brush..., levelling & grading dirt & gravel and was a very useful tool on a 7000lb machine. The way it is used, there is very little extension on the tilt cylinders when it is working so not a lot of force applied to them. While definitely not something i would want on if scooping bucketloads, it is very simple to take on & off. They do offer something i think they call a forestry version that upgrades from straps to cables that i would recommend.

I have a hardpan rock/gravel property beneath a skim coat of poor soil. I got 4 bolt on teeth from Amazon for $40 and drilled my bucket to mount them. They haven't been removed in more than a year. If I want a smoother finish or cleanup up snow I use the blade on the 3Pt. They really help break up the hard ground.

Has anyone used the Piranha for snow on a gravel drive ???
----- Yes.. I got the Piranha bar as to not ware on the bucket edge. There is a definite learning curve on what bucket angle to use it to move snow on the frozen drive, but only takes a short time to learn.. It has worked well..
<<<<<
In fact if anybody has an idea on how to dig in compacted, dry, hard dirt I'd like to hear suggestions.
----- You may have to break things up first with a sub soil shank before trying to dig. I've used this technique with good results.

I have both, started with the ratchet rake when I had a ToolCat, works great as mentioned for brush removal, leveling and final grade in prep for seeding. I did about an acre or so at the lake with it. When I downsized to the BX25D I added the Pirahna and it really helped in the digging aspect and also does a decent job of brush removal. I wouldn’t say as good as the RR, but since it is always on it is more convenient. I have since upgraded to a B2650 and it has enough power to rib out the roots of smaller trees, up to about 4”. Again it is always on so more usage. If I had to only have one it would be the Pirahna, fortunately I have both so when needed I can put it on and have a better tool to finish grade and seed bed.

I have an ATI myself and I bought it with the future in mind. I want replaceable pin on teeth on the bar. Mine replaces with a roll pin, so no welding required and you pay only for the tooth.

I don't think anyone has enough talent to NOT grab gravel using bucket/bar.
Edge Tammers can keep the bucket from digging in. Do you think Edge Tammers (https://r2manufacturing.com/products...roduct-reviews) would fit on your bucket with the piranha bar? I saw these used on Tractor Time with Tim... they seemed work well with snow removal.

Using a Piranha bar on my MX5200. Makes a huge difference.

Same here. Put mine on when I got the tractor and it has never come off. Great piece of gear!
