Following the excavator bucket tip through an extended range of motion, the new Geith hydraulic Pro-Link thumb offers rotation of at least 180 degrees, for improved material pick-up and placement. Custom-built of high-strength 400BHN material, the thumb uses a universal linkage pivot system that can be installed on the carrier’s arm without removing the dipper arm linkage. The lock-up pin of the thumb contributes to operator safety by adding ram protection, and provides storage for the thumb when not in use. Built-in linkage positional stop protects the thumb ram.
