Handling thumb option: €152 excl.

Add the “handling thumb” option and gain in efficiency…

The “handling thumb” is a mechanical device attached to the mini-excavator’s swing arm. It works in tandem with the bucket to create a grab that can grip, lift and move a variety of objects and materials, including wood, concrete, construction waste, rocks and much more.

Materials handling

The handling thumb turns the mini-excavator into a real mechanical hand. It can pick up and move objects of all shapes and sizes, from tree trunks for clearing, to concrete blocks for demolition work, to rocks for landscaping. This considerably increases the machine’s versatility, enabling it to perform tasks that would not be possible with a bucket alone.

Debris management

When it comes to demolition work or site clean-up, thumbs are particularly useful. It makes it easy to pick up and remove construction debris and waste. Its ability to grab and hold objects makes the cleaning process much faster and more efficient.

Improved work efficiency

With the handling thumb, tasks that previously required several machines or intensive manual labor can be carried out much more quickly and easily. For example, heavy materials can be handled and loaded without the need for additional manpower or specialized lifting equipment. What’s more, the handling thumb can be used to precisely move objects and materials in confined spaces, which is often difficult to achieve with other types of machine.
