Thumb for CAT/Caterpillar excavators

Gentec Equipment

Accomplish any excavating, and material handling job better and faster with our superior thumbs for CAT/Caterpillar excavators.

Optimize the capacity and productivity of your CAT excavator by equipping it with a thumb attachment. An excavating thumb attachment makes it a lot easier for the bucket to pick, hold and move cumbersome materials like trunks, rocks, branches and debris and place them precisely. A hydraulic excavator thumb provides you with a steady pressure throughout the entire cylinder range. It can reach a 130-degree rotation, which makes it simple for the bucket to move in tighter spaces. Our thumb attachments have 2 to 4 fingers made with solid high-strength steel plates, along with serrated edges. They are fully gusseted for superior strength. Our inventory includes multiple sizes of thumbs (8” to 32” width and 24” to 72” length).

We specialize in the manufacturing, distribution, sale and service of support equipment and machinery attachment for construction, civil engineering, landscaping, and forestry sectors all across Canada and the United States.
