    Can anyone explain to me why CP does this to their thumbs? I just don't see the benefits to it and quite frankly I don't like the design of their thumbs and I really don't like their buckets, but I was curious if there was any reasoning to having these two tubular pieces of steel that stick out on either side of the thumb as pictured.:confused::confused:

    Thanks

    That is one ugly thumb, some of the other names do that, but with full width tongs, that is stupid.

    That looks like a 135US Deere you are sitting in.

    haha, sorry, forgot to mention this is not me. It's just a pic I found and it reminded me how much I hate CP thumbs. I believe it did say that the guy was in a 120C or a 135....I don't rent 120's from Hertz for that reason, they have CP crap on their machines. RSC keeps it CWS all the way.
