Two Minute Tuesdays

Take your John Deere compact tractor backhoe to the next level with a hydraulic or mechanical thumb.

With the addition of a thumb to your backhoe, the list of tasks you can perform expands. Lift, hold and move heavy logs, stones, debris, piles of brush and much more with ease. Yard clean-up just got a whole lot easier. Adding a thumb to your backhoe also improves your handling capacity and makes it easier to maneuver bulky items. Increase the versatility of your backhoe because having the right tool for the task allows you to get the job done the right way.

Backhoe thumb options available:

  • Hydraulic Thumb Kit (BXX10248) – adjusted through pull/push valve combined with backhoe levers
  • Mechanical Thumb Kit (BLV10750) – adjusted by pulling a pin and adjusting thumb manually

Lift it, move it, dig it, perform it better with a John Deere compact utility tractor backhoe with thumb. Contact your local PrairieCoast equipment at 1-877-553-3373 for more information including model compatibility.
