BXpanded Barracuda Factory Mount Mechanical Backhoe Thumb for JD 260B, 270A, 270B and 370B

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, 270B and 370B 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.

Fits Perfectly :))
Decent price, perfect addition to the John Deere 260B backhoe :)). Fits perfectly and looks good too. You will need a box wrench to tighten the pin bolt. Note: Made at time of order...3 weeks total.

Received thumb today fours weeks and two days after ordering so it was within the 4-6 week time frame they advertised. I’m very pleased with it, heavy duty and well built, took all of ten minutes to put it on and was using it. It does exactly what I wanted it to do. I was hesitant about ordering with all the bad reviews but I had no issues. Thought I would give them a two thumbs up to go with all the thumbs down from other people. Just remember they take the money when order is received and allow the time advertised for them to build it they’re NOT Walmart where they pull it off a shelf and mail it!

The old adage, “anything worth having, is worth waiting for,” is extremely true for our Barracuda Factory Mount Thumb. The moment we received it, lifted the box, and realized how heavy it felt, I knew we had a top notch product. I Opened the box, installed our thumb in less than ten minutes, and put it to use immediately on 1/4 acre of trash trees, taking them out, and moving them root ball, and all. My wife and I are both handicapped, having this thumb has opened new ways of safely accomplishing tasks we never dreamed our backhoe could do. This thumb allows us to nimbly pick up small objects, and also has a phenomenal amount of grip strength allowing us to safely load log rounds onto our splitter, all day long. We are so grateful we did not go by any negative ratings, because the highest quality, design, fit, strength, and dozens of safe uses. Now we can stay on our acreage, continue to use our wood stove, and do many neglected projects. We are extremely blessed and grateful for this invaluable product. Another point worth making is did not inhibit the use of our backhoe, only improving it’s capabilities at least 100%. In our honest opinion, it outperforms the OEM hydraulic thumb. If we are ever able to buy another backhoe, we will order the thumb and backhoe at the same time. We have had this for over two years, and know it will probably be passed on to our daughter, when she inherits our place. One thing is still puzzling about this, how BXpanded can afford to make such a high end product for such an affordable price. Very Respectfully submitted.

Excellent addition to my JD 370B
I've purchased the Barracuda back hoe thumb for my John Deere 370B backhoe and very impressed. Easy installation, very well built, heavy duty. I've used it for picking up rocks, moving concrete pieces, lifting logs, and have saved my back a ton. Couldn't be happier. Get the Quick-on connector to make switching from factory bucket to trenching bucket to ripper much faster & easier!

Easy install, well built precision fit. Installed in 15 minutes. Do to covid i waited a while but supporting a USA company and getting a quality product is well worth the wait.

I agree with Niel Burns's review
I also agree that it expands the multi usefulness of my backhoe. The added bonus is that it became part of the backhoe after a 10 minute install. There's no reason to ever need to remove it and there's basically no maintenance required beyond normal scheduled machine greasing. Proud to buy "American Made"
