These inexpensive and easy to build attachments will dramatically increase
the usefulness of your backhoe! Commercially built units cost $550 or $1350 depending on the size. Use our plans to build your own and you'll save big ! This adjustable thumb attaches and removes in seconds, just pull two pins. You can also pin the thumb back so it's out of the way but still attached to your machine. You'll be able to pick up logs,
(great for cutting firewood), stones, brush, stumps, blocks, just about anything that's normally hard to get a hold of.
No special tools needed to build!
A hand drill or drill press, welder, and hack saw or bandsaw is all you need.
