Mechanical Thumb & Hydraulic Thumb
The Evans & Reid “Thumb” is a versatile attachment which grips a wide variety of any shape material like a thumb.
The thumb can be used in conjunction with buckets or rakes and is easily folded away or removed when not needed.
There are two types available:
Mechanical: Thumb is held by a stay bar in a fixed position for the bucket to pinch against.
Hydraulic: A hydraulic ram replaces stay bar which allows a greater versatility of use allowing the thumb to be powered as well as the bucket.
Design shape “curved or straight” can be specified according to materials to be handled to increase productivity.
