I’ve just ordered a flail for my cat2.7d, any tips on how to keep the thumb rocker switch engaged formworking the flail so I don’t have to hold my thumb on it all the time.  I’m not talking altering thenhydraulics and spending a small fortune, more any DIY tricks.  Cheers 

Which flail did you go for Stephen? Let us know how you get on with it. Looked at the cheap ones bucket warehouse are doing but imagine they’ll die quite quickly at that price compared to the ‘proper’ ones. But not being able to see/try any makes it difficult to know.

I joined the club today. After the advice on this thread I have taken the plunge and bought my first arb digger, a 2008 Takeuchi TB016 with 2900 hours. Collecting next weekIMG_3015.jpg

Any sign of the Incredible Hulk yet Eddie? Have you had a chance to use it in anger? 

Done a bit of shaking down with it this week, bloody freezing!

Awaiting another piece of the attachment setup from Holland now.

It’s a fair thing, hell of a reach for a wheeled machine.
