You can position and move the Utility Hydraulic Thumb from the cab. As the name implies, this hydraulic thumb is utilitarian in design, with a narrow width and lighter weight. They are most suitable for light to medium-duty material handling tasks where tooth mesh and full rotation are not critical requirements. Because they are not necessarily bucket or machine specific, they are well-suited for use in fleets with a mix of machines and various bucket and coupler combinations.
Thumb is controlled independently of the bucket. The operator positions the thumb as needed for precise material handling and placement.
One thumb works well with a wide range of machine, bucket and coupler combinations making them perfect for mixed fleets.
Utility thumbs mount to the face of the excavator stick allowing for a wide range of machine, bucket and coupler combinations.
Utility thumbs are narrow in width for good visibility. They are well-suited for light- to medium-duty tasks like handling brush, rocks, and construction debris.
