The thumb situation came out like this. I like the ruggedness of the WB thumb, however it does not have the range of motion that PSM or HPF have. Both of these offer a prolink version, WB does not. So I contacted HPF and PSM. The PSM looks a little better on the website but its about 2K over the HPF and the HPF is $2.2K over the WB. I could not believe it but the PSM thumb for a 55 sized machine costs 7K retail plus shipping. I could not stop the words "you have to be FN kidding me" from flowing out. So it will be the HPF thumb and WB 24" bucket and manual coupler. I would like to see WB be competetive with a more current thumb design, I like their stuff but its all about capability and both the PSM and HPF are far more capable (granted both are more money).
