Excavating Thumb

Gentec Equipment

Find the best excavating thumb for all your heavy-duty material handling and excavating work, while improving your productivity.

Adding an excavating thumb will considerably increase your excavator’s versatility, allowing you to pick materials like rocks, concrete, trunks, branches, and debris, to move them, and place them precisely. Its extra linkage extends the thumb’s reach, across the bucket rotation axis, including at full roll out. This particular aspect provides superior material handling capacity, which will significantly improve your productivity. Most excavating thumbs can achieve up to 130-degree angle, which makes it easier for heavy machinery to pick up objects that are closer to it.

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