How to install a tooth bar (toothbar) and Review Harbor Freight drill bit set #00527

So Oklahoma has some pretty hard soil. Lots of clay so digging is pretty hard with a smooth bucket. But with a tooth bar it makes breaking into the ground much easier. It’s kinda the difference between diving into water and a belly flop. The largest drill bit I had was only 1/2″ so I also use the Harbor Freight silver and deming drill bit set. sizes: 9/16,5/8,11/16,3/4,13/16,7/8,15/16 and 1″ I use a 3/4″ drill bit for the bolt to go through the bucket.

    Dewalt makes pilot point bit that prevents 4:01. But can do without.

    Successful. 4:01 is stuck because the rpm is too low. When it's about to break thru, increase the RPM to its maximum then engage. I have the same B&D drill and yes it blows smoke yet still works fine.

    @calvinhobbescinnamon Sorry I do not know the brand name of it. And to be honest I totally got lucky buying this. I saw some like this on ebay and they should install the same way. I looked around on youtube to see if I could find a vid of this or something like this with no such luck. If you do install one you can attach it to this if ya want. Glad I could help you out good luck!!!

    @pptgtool Thanks I meant to do A LOT better of a job actually talking about the bits the case and everything but I had my old camera that doesn't have a lot of time to record on it. But ya for $30.00 and as well as it cut I was pretty impressed.
