Hydraulics

The optional hydraulic thumb allows you to handle a variety of loading and digging jobs without stopping to change implements. It works with the bucket to pinch materials for loading and carrying. When no longer needed, it retracts to permit normal excavation.
 
The U25S's factory-installed thumb bracket and relief valve significantly reduce the time needed to mount the hydraulic thumb.
 
Protected Bucket Cylinder Hoses
 
Routing the bucket cylinder hoses within the arm not only provides greater protection, it also improves operator visibility, increases hose service life, and lowers repair costs.
 
Well Protected Front Attachment Hoses
 
To protect the front hoses from accidental damage, they are routed through the swing bracket.
 
A metal cover plate at the back of the boom protects the operator should hose damage occur.
 
Auxiliary Hydraulic System
 
Designed to accommodate a variety of attachments, such as breakers and augers, the U25-3S’s auxiliary hydraulic system consists of port pipes on the arm, bi-directional auxiliary hydraulic controls and a control value.
 
The auxiliary hydraulic connections are located within easy reach and incorporate short hoses that are less likely to become tangled or damaged.
