Introduction

The efficient & robust design of the Thumb allows for up to 160 degrees rotation compared to the market average of 120 degrees. Our Thumb is manufactured in our state of the art facility in Newry using Hardox 400 steel which is 4 times stronger than mild steel. This allows us to make it lighter and offers the operator more lifting capacity when it’s in use.
