I ordered a B2601 TLBMMM combo. Wanted a manual thumb but for almost 800.00 I was trying hard to find another manufacturer. Anyone know of one available. BXpanded has nice units but not for a BH70 backhoe.

If it will make you feel any better, I had a MANUAL thumb built for my machine last year.
Cost me a cool $1000! I was shocked!
I could not buy a factory built, or after market thumb, because it needed to be relatively light (1/2" steel), but 40" long.
I think mine really should have cost maybe $700,...... or perhaps less, because I supplied some of the material.
