Yes we have gotten good feedback on the thumbs for the extendahoe. There are some extendahoes where the outer stick extends out and some where the inner stick extends. From the sound of it you have the extendahoe where the inner stick extends.
If your looking for a hydraulic thumb your only option would be to place it on the outer stick. This would work however you’d only be able to use it while the stick is in. Most customer with the extendahoe tend to go with the mechanical option because the mounting bracket is 18″×4″ which can be mounted to the inner stick. Depending on your machine the inner stick may already be sticking out 12" when retracted so it would only lose 6" of retraction.
Where you mount it is completely up to you and what your needs are an yes some modification may be required if the arm is not flat.

I have a John Deere 510C with the extendahoe and noticed you responded to someone that you have had many customers order a 36" thumb for this machine.
My question is from looking at your thumb and my machine I seem to have two options, one is to weld the thumb to the inner extendable part of the stick, while this would also limit the retraction by a few inches. The other way would be to weld to the outer fixed part of the boom which would involve some additional fabrication due to the collar and tab that holds the collar to the boom and limit the use of the thumb to having the extension retracted.
So I’m wondering if you have had any feedback or pictures of your thumb mounted on an extendahoe of the extendable inner stick variety.
