    Re: Diverter Sanity Check

    Re: Custom hydraulic backhoe thumb

    I guess you don't need that pic any more :-).

    I'm so sorry for not posting one. I just never remembered when I was out by the machine.

    Re: Diverter Sanity Check

    Fred,

    Re: Diverter Sanity Check

    I used the diverter more today with the Grapple and I'm starting to wonder: Is the regen dump (grapple close) circuit just as powerful as the non-regen curl (grapple open)? My grapple "works", but...

    Re: Fab a bolt-on plate to make grading bucket?

    Re: Diverter Sanity Check

    Look at me quoting my own post. :-P
