Hydraulic vs Rigid Thumbs

Hydraulic vs rigid, there are pros and cons to both. Hydraulic excavator thumbs can be very convenient and speed up the process of some jobs. Hydraulic excavator thumbs can also be very expensive and require plumming on the boom sticks. A rigit excavator thumb can be a bit more labor intensive however they can have a tighter grip than hydraulics and also can be a lot less expensive. If you need to move the thumb often then a hydraulic thumb might be a better choice, if your looking to tear down a lot of trees and need that extra tight grip then a rigid may be a better choice.
