Full clamping force with greater rotation
The Progressive EZLink Thumb offered by ACS Industries has many benefits over traditional progressive linkage thumbs. The EZLink Thumb provides greater thumb rotation as well as a reduced thumb tuck dimension while still allowing full cylinder clamping forces. The EZLink Thumb uses a universal style linkage that results in 1/3 of the installation time required for a traditional progressive thumb. The existing bucket linkage on the machine does not need to be removed or modified for installation. The EZLink Thumb has a universal linkage design that features standardized wear parts and shorter pins for better parts interchangeability, availability and durability. EZlink Thumbs are available for machines ranging from 8 to 50 metric tons and fit many of the shorter OEM sticks available. The thumb is available with either smooth or serrated style teeth and can be built around other manufacturers’ buckets. The field proven Progressive EZLink Thumb can be purchased as part turn-key package of attachments including ACS buckets, rakes, couplers and hydraulic activation kits to maximize the efficiency of any excavator providing “lowest delivered cost” for attachments.
