Looking at ordering some new toys, I mean work things. Looking at the Expanded piranha toothbar and the barracuda BH Thumb. I have some brush removal, and have to clean a lot of rocks out of a creek. I haven't used either before and wanted to see if anyone has, and what their thought are. The thumb seems like it would be a good idea, but don't know if it will get in the way of digging with the BH when it is in the storage position, or when putting it on the storage dolly I made.

Thanks

The Piranha bar is a great addition to your bucket. For brush clearing it is excellent!

The BH thumb is a very useful add-on to have. It's one of those tools that is the only thing that will do the job for certain tasks. It is perfect for plucking large rocks within its weight limits. Just don't expect to be plucking tree stumps straight out of the ground.

I have the thumb and find it does not interfere with digging or other functions of the BH. In fact. a few times I had forgotten I had a thumb installed with it being stored so well on the dipper stick!

I have the tooth bar and it is as everyone has said...awesome! It's quality made and really improves the bucket. I've been looking at the backhoe thumb but haven't had the funds yet to purchase it. But I would imagine it is high quality just like the tooth bar. :cheers:

Thank you all, going to order the toothbar this week, and probably the thumb later this year before I do some more clearing.
