3 PT Thumb
« on: November 06, 2017, 04:11:19 pm »
I had the thumb welded up last week and added the hydraulics. My welds are not pretty but hopefully they will hold. It worked well kept a 20-24 foot piece of ash up off the ground and secure while I cut it into rounds.

I've got a mini excavator with a hydraulic thumb. I can't imagine life without one. Great machine to have.

That looks pretty handy for bucking up firewood.The next time it's hooked to the tractor could you take and post a picture?
