Thumb attachments for backhoe

Gentec Equipment

Check out our selection of thumb attachments for backhoes to help you accomplish all heavy-duty material handling and excavating jobs better and faster.

Operating a backhoe requires precision and dexterity. When equipped with a thumb attachment, not only do you improve the handling capacity of your machinery, it becomes easier to maneuver. Thumbs attachments for backhoes will simplify the tasks of picking, holding, and moving cumbersome materials like pieces of concrete, rocks, debris, and trunks, and placing them precisely. When attached to a bucket, a hydraulic thumb provides an even pressure throughout the entire cylinder range. The majority of our thumbs for backhoes can reach a 130-degree rotation, which makes it easier for the machinery to move in smaller spaces. Our thumb attachments have 2 to 4 fingers made with solid high-strength steel plates, along with serrated edges. Finally, each thumb is fully gusseted for exceptional strength.
