Pin-On Hydraulic Thumb Progressive EZ Link - Patriot
The Thumb with the best range of tuck & extension in the industry is now available in the Patriot product line.
Patriot Progressive EZ Link Thumbs are custom designed and manufactured to work with ACS Excavator Buckets so that bucket and thumb integrate seamlessly, giving the operator the widest range of motion possible in all job applications.
The innovative thumb design allows for the best range of tuck & extension in the industry. The patented design protects the cylinder rod by placing it up & away from potential contact with handled material while maintaining a full transfer of force to the thumb. The unique positioning of the cylinder rod keeps it from being damaged, resulting in lower cost to both own and operate.
The Serrated Thumb Teeth are crafted from AR400 steel, ensuring long service and even wear over the life of the attachment.
Designed to be installed in around 1/2 the time of conventional thumbs — about six hours.
The progressive link design was created by ACS Industries. United States Patent number 7,818,901.
