    I wish I would have just bit the bullet and had a hydraulic thumb installed on the backhoe when I bought it. I use the mechanical thumb all the time and the convenience of operating it remotely would be great to have. I'll convert it some day.

    that's a bummer, the hydraulic thumb is so useful. I dont have a separate control for mine, just a solenoid, valve, and a momentary switch. When I push the switch it changes one of my controls to the thumb, works out okay, other than the ugly wires (red wires seen in my pic)

    For sure. Concerned about the weight of a grapple for a relatively small tractor with the 524 (524x2.2 = 1,153lb to full height) loader. This frame is relatively light, got it with 42” forks.


    My labor saving procedure is to load the splits directly into the bucket to stack it. Or put the rounds in the bucket at splitter height, then the splits go into a wheelbarrow.




    And bought fork extensions to move the snowmobiles or load them on the trailer or into the van by myself.

    That's why I went with an Everything Attachments 55" grapple. Just under 300lbs. My 48" forks and frame are a little over 400lbs.

    Nice. I like that size.

    On TBN a fair number of people have adapted inexpensive rear view cameras to use with rear snow throwers. Clever.

    Some cameras don’t work so well.

    How long was the lead time on those?

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    I bought it a little over a year ago and it had a 2 month lead time due to all the other orders they had. The paint was still outgassing a bit from being so fresh!
