Mechanical Thumbs

Gentec Equipment

Find the best mechanical thumbs to accomplish all heavy-duty material handling, construction and excavating, a lot faster!

If you need a job done faster and have a smaller budget, mechanical thumbs are those your should look into to get the job done. However, having a mechanical thumb attached to your machinery will come in handy for any material handling job, regardless of your sector of activity. It will considerably improve your excavator’s versatility, allowing it pick up, grasp, and hold difficult material like rocks, trunks, concrete and branches, and place it precisely. Since both the bucket and the thumb rotate on the same axis, the thumb tip and bucket teeth maintain an even grip on the load when rotating.

Gentec Equipment’s mechanical thumbs possess two to four fingers that are built with 1” and 2” high-strength steel plate; the thumbs are equipped with serrated edges, are double welded for added reinforcement, and fully gusseted for exceptional strength.
