    We recently got new teeth for our two magnum mulchers. There was a little vibration before but now they seem to be out of balance terribly. Can find nothing on the "Net" to help and where we bought the teeth is no help either.
    Anyone out there help?

    Did you replace all the teeth? Reusing some old ones with the new may have unbalanced the system.

    How were the anvils? When ever we do ours we try and match the wear on the opposite side. Or build up the wore ones. Did you use new bolts? Use a pry bar or bottle jack and a dial indicator (if you got one) to check the bearings for play.
    What type of teeth did you go to or stay with? how much per tooth?
    Our bobcat's teeth are $350 cdn. each we are changing them out with an FAE tooth $125 (same wieght and simmilar design.
    Might try Quadco's crown teeth dipped or hardened a little more. They chew up the green stuff nice. But as is only get 10 shift's out of one side.

    mulcher teeth

    We changed all the teeth on both mulchers. Is it likely that the drums are going out on BOTH machines?:beatsme
