HAWK 2000 Hour Warranty

Mechanical Thumb

HAWK’s mechanical thumb is a heavy-duty material that works best in clamming up trees, pipes, rocks, and other recycling operations. Since it’s versatile and all-around, it’s also ideal for general construction applications. This product is proven to be cost-effective as it offers unique benefits that increase productivity, like its versatility that adapts to different working conditions. 

The mechanical thumb for the backhoe helps stabilize materials that are difficult to control. This tool is perfect for medium-sized farms and worksites, given that it is small and lightweight. Meanwhile, the mechanical thumb for the excavator is suitable for grasping oddly shaped items in the industrial job sites because it is larger and heavier than the backhoe mechanical thumb. The excavator’s mechanical thumb is the best bet for digging trenches, demolitions, and foundations. 

The product that the brand offers comes in various sizes that fit your liking. Look no further if you’re looking for mechanical thumbs that provide good stability.

Q. How do you measure an excavator or backhoe for thumb attachment? 

   A. Make a 90-degree angle between the machine’s stick and the excavator bucket. After which, measure the machine’s stick to the bucket’s edge or teeth. Measuring a mechanical thumb is essential to knowing the right size, ensuring you use the proper attachment for your excavator, backhoe loaders, and other equipment needing a thumb attachment.

Q. How far can a standard excavator reach?

   A. Excavators have a digging depth of 10 to 48 feet or more. Digging too deeply overloads your excavator and causes it to overheat, so ensure to purchase the right excavator fit for deep reaches.
