Good morning everyone, I've been considering adding a thumb as well. Like many of you I figured some modification would be required to allow the backhoe to store properly. Currently I'm out of town on a business trip but I would love to get a thumb ordered before I get home. I was wondering if anyone could give me the measurement from the tooth to the top of the bucket? I see some reference to the bucket being 24 inches. What size thumbs have people used?
