Cat® Pro Series Thumbs are an asset to any job site — making an excavator and bucket more productive in many different situations. The addition of a thumb upgrades the performance of an excavator by extending its use beyond digging. The bucket and thumb work together, easily grabbing, picking and sorting. Thumbs can be used in a variety of applications, including site preparation, land clearing, site cleanup, forestry and residential demolition.
Thumb is controlled independently of the bucket. The operator positions the thumb as needed for precise material handling and placement.
Pro Series Thumbs rotate around the bucket pin. The thumb teeth move with the bucket edge, further enhancing operator control.
Thumb frame spans the width of the bucket for good control of longer, wider loads (such as limbs or poles.)
Inner curve of the thumb frame naturally cradles material. Serrations help hold material firmly.
Thumb frames are tough, validated and field proven to last in a range of applications.
Cat Pro Series Thumbs are at home with stick frame demolition.
The range of the Pro Plus thumb makes working up high a simple matter.
Pro Series thumbs are tough, built to handle abrasive loads.
Use a Pro Series thumb to pick, sort and stack material.
Thumbs turn any excavator into a versatile material handler.
