That 992 probably got put to pasture when they priced tires!

Saldi's loaders, in showroom condition. One of the few contractors around who takes extreme pride in their equipment

Good looking machines. But my question is this, What is the use of having teeth on the bucket when you got a plate over them. Makes them useless in my opinion. Why are they sitting on wood?

Like Bryan said pride in equipment. Keeps the tires out of mud and dirt im guessing. And on the teeth im guessing keeps the bucket edge from wearing out so you can jsut replace the teeth and you got a new edge maybe?

But it is useless to have the teeth with an edge like that on them. if the plate hits first your just pissing in the wind with the teeth. Might as well leave them off and keep the straight edge

i mean the teeth holds the plate out farther if you know what i mean. Ive seen other company's do it before. I'm just making a guess.

They look like they are set up for snow that would explain the plate on the teeth. The wood is probably to prevent a rut from sitting.

Yeah but it is just not up there. See them with companies that do pipeline and paving. I can understand that but just same aspect just leave the edge alone. When the teeth aren't the first thing hitting the rock it isn't breaking as well. Ran both sides and Teeth helped when going in the pile every time.
