The mechanical thumb for a backhoe attaches to the boom and has 5 possible positions to help you stabilize materials which are hard to control. Simply fold it back or slide out of the way when not in use. Hands down the easiest way to upgrade your backhoe. Please measure your bucket before ordering to ensure a proper match. A mismatched thumb will result in damage to your backhoe, as larger backhoes have more bucket force. For example: if you mount a 25” thumb on a hoe that requires a 31” one, you will probably bend or break your equipment. Make sure that this thumb is at least the length of your bucket when measured from boom to the teeth or the warranty may voided if damage occurs.

Thumb for BX23 works well with added plate.Review by Bob
Very well built. Installs easily however when used on the Kubota BX23 backhoe model BT600 you will need to use a 1/4" steel plate spacer because the backhoe arm is only 3". Otherwise it is a great deal! (Posted on 2/15/2016)

From Randall at Feb 15, 2017

Question: Does anyone have any experience setting up this thumb on a John Deere 270A Backhoe? Would appreciate any feedback you could offer. Thank you!


From Tony at Jan 28, 2017

Question: Will this fit a Kubota BH77?

Answer: Tony,

My research was unable to turn up the exact dimensions of the BH77 boom. This model thumb will fit any boom with a width of 3 1/4" or less.

From jack at Jan 17, 2017

Question: can this be modiified to fit a Mahindra MB26 which is 4-1/4" wide. what components do you manufacture that fit Mahindra

Answer: You would need to purchase one of our weld on quick attach assemblies. Then you would need to cut the brackets off your existing bucket and weld them to our assembly. Now you would be open to all universal skid steer style attachments!

From Julian at Dec 23, 2016

Question: I have TYM TB600 backhoe, it measures right on 3 5/16" width does this have enough play to fit the extra 1/16"?

Answer: Unfortunately, this would not fit the extra 1/16".

Thank you,
Titan Support.

From bruce at Sep 21, 2016

Question: My John Deere boom is about 5" wide, can you do a thumb for that ?

Answer: We do not do custom orders at this time and we do not make thumbs for that width. Have a great day!

From Brian at Sep 17, 2016

Question: Where on the boom should we measure for the 3.25"?

Answer: You would need to measure the width of the boom itself.

From Taj Pietkiewicz at Aug 22, 2016

Question: I have a Kubota 4672 Backhoe with 16" bucket. I haven't been able to find any info about this thumb working with my backhoe. The dipper is 3" wide by 4" deep, so I know those dimensions work, but what is the overall thickness of the thumb when fully retracted? I'm worried the bucket will not be able to fully close into the dipper.


Answer: This Fits backhoes with up to 3.25" boom width. If you fall within that category, this will work for you.

From Taj Pietkiewicz at Aug 22, 2016

Question: Hi,

I just asked a fitment question about fitting on a Kubota 4672 backhoe. Not concerned on the dipper dimensions, more of the clearance issues on the dipper and bucket. I may have mistakenly said the width of the bucket was 16", but it may actually be between 12-16", which would proportionally affect the depth of the bucket. Thanks.

Answer: This Fits backhoes with up to 3.25" boom width. If you fall within that category, this will work for you.

-Kaila Holt

From Tom at Jul 20, 2016

Question: I would like a bolt on thumb for my Terramite T5C. Do you have one that would fit? If not, could you make one that would?

Answer: As long as your boom width is 3.25" we have one that will fit great! Let us know if you have anymore questions. Have a great day.

-Jason M.

From paul at Apr 19, 2016

Question:  How well of a fit is this on a woods Bh6000 ground breaker backhoe do you need any modifications thank you

Answer: This thumb is designed to fit on arms that are 3.25" wide or smaller. If you are alot smaller, you would want to add shims to remove slack and free space. Thanks and have a great day!
