I've been thinking about putting a thumb on my 447 backhoe. I was wondering if I could put a hydraulic cylinder on it and run it in parallel with my bucket curl cylinder with cutoffs for when I want it stationary or parked. What do you think? Has anyone ever tried this?

Re: Hydraulics question
Technically it would work, but it would not be user friendly at all. The best way would be to add a electric diverter valve to the bucket circuit, or a solenoid valve to the main feeds to the hoe.
Why not ask this in the Hydraulics forum?
