          A lot of buckets don’t have teeth, they’re called finish / re-handle buckets. Sometimes an excavator operator will have a piece of flatbar welded across the teeth.

              Hmmm, it's usually the excavator's owner who has the teeth blocked, operators being, well, operators, and well, buried lines being, well, buried.

                  I thought the purpose of the teeth was to clean the dirt from both sides of the buried line.


                  BTW...... Very nice work vernon. It should take a day or two to tear it up from the looks of it.

                            Is that flux core welded?
