The powerful Next Gen Cat 395 Excavator paired with a BCS hydraulic thumb creates the perfect machine for large demolition projects. The added control from the thumb allows for optimal material handling. The operator not only the ability to handle large amounts of demolition debris between the thumb and bucket, but can also grab and precisely manage materials between the tip of the thumb and flat blade on the bucket.
The first-in-class BCS 395 thumb stands out not only because of its size, but its impressive features. Finding the perfect balance between a full working range and the ability to move out of the way required careful design of the thumb and its linkage. The resulting design of the thumb body provides adequate ear clearance for various bucket types with a unique side link and H-link made to work around the 395 stick and quick coupler.
The thumb follows beyond the full range of motion of the bucket giving the ability to precisely grab and securely hold during rotation, accurately placing materials where intended. The unique design of the progressive linkage allows for over 180 degrees of motion of the thumb and tucks away close to the stick when not in use. With the thumb in its folded position, the operator can work without any obstruction around the bucket.
