Solesbee’s manual and hydraulic excavator thumbs for any size and model excavator allow operators to move from one application to another, such as moving dirt or material, without changing attachments. The thumb’s strength enables operators to grip materials of all sizes that a bucket cannot handle alone and generally require a significant amount of time for clearing. Contractors can quickly grab and place materials, including trees, pipes, rocks and scrap materials, then fold the thumb down to use the bucket. The attachment can also remain on the carrier during other operations. The series is compatible with 32- to 78-inch-tip-radius buckets.
