Our hydraulic thumbs are built to last, constructed using only quality materials, bushes, rams and steel. We work closely with our clients, which allows us to improve our products based on the feedback we receive.
Without a thumb fitted, the operator is constantly pulling things closer to the machine in order to get them into the bucket. This inevitably results in the operator wasting precious time fishing for the object, or the object coming in contact with the tracks, or even the cab, which puts the machine in danger of damage, and could even put the driver at risk.
Once the object finally does go in the bucket and is lifted out of the way, it often fails to stay in the bucket and falls out, which can potentially harm others.
Our thumb ensures a very simple and quick operation to grab the object you need moving, whether it’s a stump, rock, lump of concrete, or log. Simply pick it up like a hand and place it exactly where you want it to go, saving you time, money and making your job safer and a lot less frustrating!
An added bonus of a thumb is that the sites you are working tend to be left tidier; thanks to the fact you can move and place the obstacles that are in your way instead of just pushing them to the side.
We have also found that using our thumbs when constructing river defenses and landscaping terraces with armour rock is a far easier process. You can lift, adjust and position the large rock with ease, without the risk of it falling out the bucket or the usual struggle of getting them in the bucket in the first place.
