Fleco Attachments has redesigned the universal A-Frame Thumb. Stylized to accommodate excavators and backhoes of all sizes, the A-Frame Thumb is now available in a new size.

Manufactured in both mechanical and hydraulic configurations, these thumbs offer features designed for tough applications, such as timber debris and limb removal work.

Key features include: serrated teeth for increased gripping ability; A-frame style stiff arms that resist twisting for a more rigid and secure operation; durable steel pins; and three working positions.

Fleco A-Frame Thumbs are built for 35,000- to 55,000-lb. (15,875 to 24,947 kg) machines. New sizing is 26-in. (66 cm) wide and 58-in. (147 cm) long, with 1-in. (2.5 cm) thick tines.
