That's a much better idea than the weld on type , I am not a big fan of welding on diggers/ loader arms . I would of chosen that over the weld on That I have fitted.

As previously mentioned and doing a bit of studying, if they could put a ram in there that gave at least some adjustments and plugged straight into the two way auxiliary it could really be something that many would be attracted to or even hire companies can add to a self drive if required?

I really like the bolt on thumb. Could see how that would be a real advantage for the occasional user. Compact enough you could probably bolt it onto the plant trailer chassis somewhere and have it with you all the time.

Must be a bit of crossed wires here, that was just something for the guys looking for solutions to what is usually 1.5 to 3.5 tonne machines on here, usually limited by transport they currently utilise.

 

I wouldn't be putting a Thumb on the Liebherr, I'm not a huge fan of the concept there are now much better but admittedly more costly alternatives available.

I aint a fan of thumbs on excavators we had quite a few issues with 35+45 ton liebherrs snapping the end of the dippers the way the geometry works with a fixed grab it basically tries to rip the end of and its amplified with a quick hitch

I'd buy one for our TB016..... RSL engineering, or whoever should have a go at making one.

No its off my smaller digger but had the mounting plate made so it could go onto this 8toner if we needed more reach or power which it certainly has!

Got a hardwood forestry thinning job in the new year that this will be coming on for about a week to stack the timber and brash.
