Custom-made thumb attachments
Our custom-made excavator thumb attachments are ideal for general earthworks. The hydraulic thumbs can be mounted on a single base plate and are welded near the end of the dipper to circumvent any location issues.
The thumb should be used in conjunction with the bucket to assist the pickup of difficult materials. The thumb attachment can also be folded up against the dipper when not required, allowing for the standard machine bucket to be used.
