BXpanded Barracuda Factory Mount Mechanical Backhoe Thumb for JD 260B, 270A and 270B
Any back hoe thumb can pick up a stick or a rock. Not all can grab and hold like the BXpanded Barracuda Thumb. Its toothed edges, strategically curved jaws, and close closing gap give an aggressive grip other BH thumbs can’t match.
The telescoping adjustment has five positions allowing you to easily move the thumb from stowed to any of several working positions in seconds with no tools and no extra parts.
The Factory Mount Barracuda uses the upper thumb attachment point included on the 260B, 270A and 270B backhoes and a longer pin through the forward most hole in the backhoe bucket for attachment. The pins and bolts are plated for corrosion resistance. It is fully compatible with all John Deere factory buckets as well as all BXpanded backhoe attachments including the Quick-On Back Hoe Bucket Connector, 6 inch Narrow Trenching Bucket and the Talon Ripper.
It’s built with US made, 1/2” thick steel and heavy wall tubing, with all the strength you’ll need to use every bit of the power of your machine. It’s TOUGH! Just like the job you have to do!
The Factory Mount Barracuda comes in John Deere Green or great looking hammered finish silver. Installation takes less than 5 minutes with no modification to your tractor. All necessary hardware is included.
