Grapples are an essential tool for many applications. They easily handle a variety of bulky objects like railroad ties, trees, large rocks, scrap and industrial debris.
They can also rake, dig and move brush, construction debris and logs without picking up dirt. But how do you choose the right grapple for your job?
Whether you need to move logs into position or load and unload material, a grapple can help your operation run more efficiently than a bucket/thumb combination. For demolition and serious material handling, a rotating grapple can offer increased productivity by allowing you to grab items from all angles without moving the machine.
Grapples have adjustable tines that can be opened or closed by a hydraulic cylinder on each side of the attachment. They are designed to securely grip logs, rocks, brush piles, scrap metal and other materials during loading and unloading of loads. They also can be used for back dragging, raking, wedging and land leveling. Choose a rugged attachment that is robotically welded for strength and precision. Make sure the grapple matches your loader’s lift capacity and can handle the size of the material you plan to move.
When it comes to hefty chores like hauling in large rocks for landscaping or moving fallen logs and debris from brush removal to a firewood pile, nothing beats a grapple. But many people don’t have a grapple, or think one is beyond their budget.
