“Best Buy” Backhoe Attachment
“My 2002 Amulet HoeClamp 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 HoeClamp is a pin-on, full motion thumb that fits most standard and extendable dipper backhoe loaders, with no additional hydraulics needed. Utilizing unique linkage, it’s operated by the backhoe’s bucket curl. Most models feature digging, grasping and also a stored position.
  “It’s a mechanical clamp that mounts on a backhoe, replacing some of the linkage and pins,” says Lund. “The HoeClamp 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.”
