    Michigan Iron Mechanical Thumb

    Anyone ever have Michigan Iron build a mechanical thumb for their 46 backhoe?

    I guess I will be the first then, for $325 they can modify a bolt-on model for the 46.

    Yes, I just need to get some measurements for them off the hoe first. I didn't think the price was bad.
