    Default Hanging my firewood up to dry

    This one was trying to get away, but I caught it by the tail. I started using the bh to control the oversize load of logs that was delivered and left in an unstable pile. I was just trying to move this one and couldn't believe the BH-70X would actually lift it and close tight enough to pick it up with the thumb. Yes, it is clear up in the air.

    Whoa, careful with your loads! That's a lot of torque trying to rotate your BH bucket/thumb. Impressive though.

    that digger you have, is it driven by it's own hydrolic pump or off of the tractors?

    Nice pics. It's amazing what they will lift.
    I have the Woods BH70-X on my Kioti CK35. I really like being able to pick up logs and cut them standing upright, great for my back.

    Yea, I wasn't actually trying to lift it at first, the pile came down on the tractor (you can see one log up against it in one of the pics) and I was just trying to push some back out of my way. I couldn't believe it was starting to lift it, so I just kept going. I normally pick them up in the middle.

    It runs off the tractor, it just connects to one of the rear remotes.

    Yes, the thumb on the backhoe must be one of the great inventions of the century! I have been using my BH-90 on my L4330 for cutting logs into firewood for two years now and would not go back to crawling around on the ground!
