Strong and Durable
Wide surface area for demolition and material handling applications with a rigid, box-type design. Penetrate, securely grasp, and retain materials better with two-over-three interlocking tines. Keep an eye on your work with long, wide-spaced tines for better visibility. Tips, wrapper, and wear strips are made of AR400 steel, for long-lasting, durability in the harshest applications.
Debris loads and unloads seamlessly without catching due to the tips mounted flush with the wrapper. Optimize material flow and penetration into piles with less curvature in the lower jaw. Maintain high-volume production when using the grapple pinned to the machine or with a Pin Grabber Coupler. Purpose-designed to match their respective machine sizes for maximum performance in break out and lift capacity. Share your grapple across similar-sized excavators for maximum utilization with the use of replaceable pins to match different linkages. Capacities calculated according to SAE standard J2754, an industry-leading standard for fabricated grapples. Optimal for applications such as: structural demolition, material handling and sorting, loading and unloading rock, scrap, pipe, waste material, and other debris.
Easy to Maintain
No need for added hydraulics or hoses. Contractors' Grapples utilize the bucket linkages for operation. Long-lasting, field-serviceable tips have extended service life without extra weight. Jaws stay connected when the grapple pin is removed with the advanced modular pin hub system. Field-install an extreme duty wear package for extra protection on your grapple.
