Q. How do you measure the weld-on style thumb bucket attachment? 

    A. If you want to know the right thumb for your excavator, you need to consider the bucket attachment’s arm length and quick coupler.

First, straighten the excavator’s arm and position it vertically toward the ground. After that, place the machine bucket at a 90-degree angle with its arm. Make sure that it’s parallel with the floor as if forming an ‘L” shape with the machine’s arm.

When the parts are positioned correctly, stand-in from the bucket and start measuring from the arm’s flat front, across the machine bucket to the teeth’s edge.

Q. What is the difference between a hydraulic and mechanical thumb bucket?

  A. In terms of cost, hydraulic types are more expensive than mechanical models. They will outperform a mechanical model. Experts recommend using hydraulic models if you use your thumb every day. If you rarely use your machine, investing in a mechanical model makes more sense.

Mechanical models stay in one position, with their buckets curling against them. It usually has three positions you can adjust manually. On the other hand, hydraulic models come with better motion range allowing the equipment operator to control the machine from its cab.
