"Best Buy" Backhoe Attachment
“My 2002 Amulet Hoe Clamp is one of my best buys ever,” says John Lund, Rhinelander, Wis., who uses the unit on his Ford 4500 loader/backhoe (ph 800 526-8538; www.amulet.com).
    The Hoe Clamp consists of a pin-on, full motion thumb that fits most standard and extendable stick backhoes up to 30,000 lbs. It’s operated by bucket curl using Amulet’s patented kidney link design. The unit requires no additional hydraulics on the backhoe.
    “It’s a mechanical clamp that mounts on a backhoe, replacing some of the linkage and pins,” says Lund. “The Hoe Clamp moves as the bucket moves. It can be pinned in 2 different locations, depending on the type of work you’re doing. I usually use it in a position where I can still dig. It’s extremely useful in building rock walls, and is easier to use than a hydraulic thumb. The company builds these units to specifically fit your backhoe.”
