Measuring The Catch Length For Your Hydraulic Thumb

Ready to pull the trigger on a hydraulic thumb?


Great! Before anything else, you’ll need to make sure our standard lengths will work for your machines.


If not, no worries!


It’s a 2 second job to measure up and shoot through to our fab team to have that customised.


As we all know every excavator is different and we want to ensure that the attachment you get from us is gonna be spot on.


This is why we have all our customers confirm their catch length to ensure the length of the thumb will be suitable and give you the most effective use out of your attachment.


Start by positioning your bucket flat on the ground and standing directly in front of the bucket…


Take out your measuring tape and stick one end exactly 1 inch from the top of the hitch and measure down to the bottom of the teeth on the bucket.


This starting point is where the bottom plate of the thumb will be welded onto the tip of your bucket and this full measurement; the 1:1 exact length of your hydraulic thumb.




If you have any problems or questions please do not hesitate to to get in touch with us on 1300 295 369.
