It depends on where it's bent. If it's just the pipe then yes you could. If you have a torch that will work better tho. For welding just find the up side or long side and weld around the pipe abo ut 1/3 to 1/2 way and check what you have. It could take several tries. For torch just heat the same area and then cool it quickly. I don't like either of those ways tho accept when nothing else will work. Welding or heating across the pipe like that will weaken it. I would try to just give it a whack with a hammer and see if that works first.

Thanks Jon, think I'll make a press by supporting both ends and a long 2x4 under the backhoe blade and press in center.

If I was doing it I would get a chain, loop it under the cutting edge, behind the auger, and over a lever and pry down. Use a 4x4 or something. You will have more control that way. Altho I have seen some artists with a hoe. lol
