High Performance with Less Fuel Comsumption

  • Move more tons per hour with faster cycle times and larger fill factors.
  • Cat Machines are pre-programmed with optimum performance settings for your grapple to maximize the pairing and efficiency of the machine and grapple.

Long and Lasting Quality

  • Grapple life is prolonged because of high quality cylinders cushioning the opening of the shells.
  • Strength you can count on. Solid construction inner tines and tips are built of high grade steel, resisting abrasion and metal-on-metal wear.

Easy Maintenance

  • Integral pivot points are equipped with dust seals to protect some of the most vital parts of the grapple.
  • Easy access to the hydraulics makes maintenance quicker, so more time can be spent moving materials.

Options for Your Specific Applications

  • Meet your specific needs with open, semi-open, or closed tine style options.
    • Open tines are best suited for large materials or scrap pieces.
    • Semi-open tines work best for applications where steel scrap or pipes and beams are being moved.
    • Closed tines are optimal for smaller, shredded materials.
