  • Secure materials between the thumb and bucket or rake with the unique curvature of the thumb and serrations on the tines
  • Get the best thumb for your tasks. With four tine configurations, select the best option for full grip or straddling the boom during transport.
  • Managing multiple attachments for a fleet is easier with a coupler system. Select thumb models are compatible with Cat Pin Grabber Couplers, allowing for machines of similar sizes to share thumbs and other attachments.

  • Easily controlled from cab separate from the bucket
  • Folds against machine boom for easy storage during travel or other activities
