In a few weeks I'm going to be landscaping the front of the house with some small to medium boulders. Figured it would be a good excuse to purchase a thumb (BXpanded Barracuda) for my 1026R 260BH. Can anyone tell me the lifting capacity of the 260BH? I want to make sure my expectations are clear what size/weight boulder I will be able to lift with the thumb.

Thanks
Kevin

i believe my book says 285 lbs. with the load hooked out at the bucket of the hoe. Boulders get real heavy real quick,even small ones.
If you want to pick stuff up and move it around, forks on the front will do wonders, alot more than the hoe can pick up.
My forks are on most of the time,I probably use them as much or more than the bucket and backhoe and mower deck combined.
That said, I'd like to have a thumb too, I think the reach of the hoe and a thumb would be handy at times.

Thanks for all of the info. I did not remember seeing the specs provided in my manual 3 years ago. I guess. I should have rechecked.

I have a set of Artillian Forks but wanted to use the thumb for fine adjustments. Lazy I know but gives me a good reason to buy one.

Thanks again for all of the input.
