    Default Mechanical Thumb For Kubota BL4690 Backhoe

    Thinking of putting a mechanical thumb on my kubota BL4690 Backhoe. Would be real handy for stumps and concrete removel. I know it can create more stress in the backhoe, but I have a good feel for equipment.

    Found a weld on model at:

    Has anybody tried one?

    I still haven't tried one, but you can get a $20 discount from CDP as a TBN member. Check this thread I posted some time ago. John

    Thumbs are a good thing for a BH.
