I saw this pic in another topic. I will be doing a lot of big rock work with my brand new 1025 coming soon - but I have never ever used a backhoe, or even started up a tractor.
My question - this looks like it would be real hard on the backhoe "arm." It surely would scratch the paint up - but if used a lot like that, how bad will it be for the life of the backhoe??? My rocks are even more jagged than this one.
Are there any pads, etc that could be used for protection? I plan on getting the thumb, but a rock this size looks too big for the thumb.
