PROGRESSIVE VS. NON-LINK THUMBS

SOME OUT OF STATE EQUIPMENT DEALERS INSTALL NON LINK THUMBS ON ALL THEIR LARGE EXCAVATORS. A NON LINK THUMB WILL WORK BUT IS NOT AS GOOD OR FLEXIBLE AS A PROGRESSIVE LINK THUMB AND COSTS CONSIDERABLY LESS. WE UTILIZE PROGRESSIVE LINK THUMBS ON MOST LATE MODEL FULL SIZE EXCAVATORS AND MATCH THE NUMBER OF TINES TO THE BUCKET. FOR A 5 TOOTH BUCKET YOU GET A 4 TINE THUMB!

BELOW ARE PHOTOS OF A PROGRESSIVE LINK THUMB IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS AND NOTE HOW IT FOLLOWS THE BUCKET THRU THE CURL RADIUS. A PROGRESSIVE LINK THUMB IS FASTER. IF YOU ARE COMPARING MACHINES AND PRICES, COMPARE APPLE TO APPLES, KNOW IF YOU ARE GETTING A NON-LINK THUMB. IF YOU DESIRE TO SAVE THE MONEY WE CAN ORDER NON-LINK THUMBS FOR YOUR MACHINE. NON-LINK THUMBS ARE USED ON MOST MINI-EXCAVATORS.
