Many people have known about used excavator, but when hear about excavator thumbs, they would be confused. At construction sites, we can see excavators which with a type of equipment attached to excavator buckets, yes, they are excavator thumbs. Typically, a thumb is part of a tractor which will be attached the excavator bucket that is on excavator or on other piece of digging machinery. The name: excavator thumbs, implies that an excavator thumb can work as a thumb and makes the bucket more efficient . That is because it can helps the device to grip large items from one a building site to other without broken them up, not just limited to scoop and other debris. So that saving the time of breaking them up into debris.

When purchase a excavator, whether a new one or an used excavator, we need to consider to this aspect.

Excavator thumbs are equipment coming from the time when used Sumitomo excavators were in extensions. The thumbs get this because they can move back and forth like human thumb. They are considered an add-on to the bucket, which makes a large object, can slide around the buckets. When among thumb and bucket, that object can be pressed to against the bucket and get fixed. So that objects can be transported from one location to another easily. Excavator thumbs function can show clearly in the work of clearing a large number of fallen trees. Using normal excavators to do the work, the trees have to be chopped or sawed into smaller sections before the bucket could scoop up and carry the trees out away. Using a thumb mechanism on a bucket-style excavator, the whole work can be easier; all the trees can be moved away from the area as a whole unit. The end result of using excavator thumbs is that the whole work finished perfectly without wasting time.

If a job doesn't need the thumb, then we can remove it with relative ease. When needed, attach the thumb to the bucket, and that's easy, too.
