Weld-On Hydraulic Thumb - Patriot
Weld-On Thumbs are now available in the Patriot product line for select OEMs including Case, Komatsu, Doosan, Volvo, and John Deere.
Patriot Weld-On Hydraulic Thumbs are designed to be universal — one thumb will install on any model excavator within the same class size. This cuts the cost of customization out of the manufacturing process and provides a quality built thumb at significant savings.
The hydraulic thumb provides operators the efficiency of controlling thumb-travel from the cab. An optional ACS Thumb Activation Package is available for excavators not already plumbed for a hydraulic thumb.
Comes standard with (2) serrated teeth crafted from tough, abrasion resistant HX400 material. The teeth can be trimmed to length to match your bucket tooth spacing as well as the bucket tip radius. The teeth provided are long enough to cover the extended tip radius of coupler equipped machines as well. Full Installation guidelines are included with your Patriot Thumb. Extra teeth are available at the time you order the thumb if more than 2 teeth are desired for the application.
If you’re adding this to a coupler-equipped machine, let us know and we’ll include extra-long teeth to cover the extended tip-radius of coupler-equipped machines.
Not compatible with coupler-equipped machines. Two teeth are provided, shipped loose and require field installation & custom length trimming to optimize lacing with existing bucket teeth. Shipping this way allows ACS to remove the cost of customization and provide a quality built thumb at significant savings to you.
The KitView Larger Your Patriot Weld-On Thumb kit ships with the teeth and gussets loose so that you can tailor it on-site to lace with the teeth on your bucket.
