    2011 KUBOTA L3200 W/ LOADER, BH77 BACKHOE

    Default BH 77 MECHANICAL THUMB

    I have a 2011 L3200 with the BH 77 backhoe. I have been looking for a mechanical thumb for a while now, and the only place I can find one is through my dealer for $530. This seems kinda steep for a mechanical thumb if you ask me...but maybe I'm just being a cheap skate! I know there are other companies like bro-tek that offer a cheaper thumb, but I like the way the kubota Thumb looks, and how it performs according to what others have said here on TBN. So.....my question is : Does anybody know where I could get a Kubota BH77 mechanical thumb at a more reasonable price?

    That does seem high. I just put a kubota thumb on my bh77 for $435.00 from the dealer. It's worth it!

    What dealer did you use? do you have their phone number. 430 sounds much better!
