Excavator thumbs come in both manual and hydraulic.
The manual thumb you have to push the thumb against the item to be picked up and then close the bucket, they offer a low cost solution with no special pins or hydraulics required.
While the hydraulic thumbs you will have to have the equipment set up to handle, but make work easier by not manually having to move the thumb.
Both types of attachments are great and makes picking up items much easier, and depending on the project, equipment, etc. it’s your preference when it comes to type.
We customize these attachments to fit various makes and models, including but not limited to: Bobcat, Case, Caterpillar, Hitachi, John Deere, JCB, Kobelco, Komatsu, New Holland, Terex, Volvo, Yanmar, Kubota, Hyundai, Sany, and Linkbelt.
