Thumbs

Having a thumb on your excavator or backhoe, will essentially make two machines out of one. In addition to being able to dig, once a thumb is added, that same machine can now grab, sort & load anything from rocks and scrap to trees & pipes.  

What Is The Difference Between Manual & Hydraulic Thumbs?

 

There are two different types of thumbs available: Manual & Hydraulic. A manual thumb is more common, and a less expensive option. The thumb is held in position using a pin & solid arm. The adjustment of the thumb to bucket angle, is changed by unpinning the arm & allowing the arm to slide to the desired position, then being re-pinned. A hydraulic thumb requires the machine already be plumbed with auxiliary hydraulic lines & have a foot pedal or switch to control the thumb. A hydraulic cylinder allows for on the fly adjustment of the thumb's proximity to the bucket, without ever leaving the cab.

Our thumbs are custom built with universal fit design for a variety of brands including John Deere, Caterpillar, Komatsu, Kobelco, Volvo, XCMG, Hyundai, JCB, Link Belt, Bobcat, Hitachi, Sunward, Kubota, Case & most others. They are manufactured to heavy duty specs, weld-on ready & have serrated edges for better gripping. The proximity of the manual thumb is adjustable by moving the placement of the arm & pin, while the hydraulic thumbs utilizes your machine's auxiliary hydraulics and foot pedal or thumb switch. If the machine is being used to grab materials more often, the operator may choose to have the thumb angled closer in proximity to the bucket for less bucket swing. In the opposite situation where digging is more of a necessity than grabbing, the thumb can be moved to a larger degree of angle, away from the bucket or even completely positioned against the stick or fully removed if it is not being required during certain dirt digging work. 

What About Used Thumbs?
I35 Equipment only offers new thumbs, which include the brackets and pins, because used thumbs often do not includes the brackets, as they were left welded on to the previous machine.
