Hydraulic Thumb for CAT/Caterpillar backhoes

Gentec Equipment

Accomplish all material handling and excavating jobs better and faster with our outstanding thumbs for CAT/Caterpillar backhoes.

Whether you are working on a construction site, on a roadside or for a large-scale landscaping business, operating a CAT backhoe demandes dexterity and precision. When attached to a bucket, not only does it become easier to maneuver, it enhances your handling capacity. Hydraulic thumbs for backhoes will simplify picking, grasping, holding, and moving cumbersome materials like concrete, rocks, debris, and trunks, and placing them precisely. A hydraulic thumb provides an steady pressure throughout the whole cylinder range. Gentec Equipment’s thumbs can reach a 130-degree rotation, which makes it easier for the backhoe to operate in tighter spaces. Our excavator thumbs have 2 to 4 fingers made with guaranteed high-strength steel plates, along with serrated edges. Each thumb is fully gusseted for improved strength. Our inventory includes multiple sizes of hydraulic thumbs (8” to 32” width and 24” to 72” length).

Gentec Equipment’s excavating thumbs’ components and features can easily be compared to CAT’s thumbs (at the fraction of the price)
