Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: is the unit plumbed for a thumb? (11/23/19 11:02 PM)
A: The unit has 1 auxiliary hydraulic circuit plumbed to the boom, it normally is used to operate the boom extension with the boom extension pinned it can be used for multiple attachments. It is controlled with either a reversing switch (in out or open close) for a boom, grapple or thumb or a (on-off) normally used with a breaker. You can see the hydraulic connections in the photos. (11/26/19 6:58 AM)
Q: Have you ever checked if a thumb can be installed? Newer models boom extensions are different the outer piece slides so the thumb slides with the bucket. Never seen a thumb on this kind of extension hoe. (12/1/19 2:20 AM)
A: No we have never attempted to install a thumb I would suggest contacting a Bobcat dealer with the serial and check with them What additional options are available for the machine we used the machine as a compact excavator with the bucket shown. (12/1/19 6:43 AM)
