High Performance Less Fuel Burn

  • Move more tons per hour with faster cycle times.
  • Increase hydraulic flow capacity up to 160 percent with a new rotation system.
  • Improve your overall fill factor up to 140-200 percent because of refined tine curvature.
  • Cat Machines are pre-programmed with optimum performance settings for your grapple to maximize the pairing and efficiency of the machine and grapple.

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 Lasting Quality

  • Grapple life is prolonged because of lighter, force distributing cast pieces in place of welds.
  • Prevent cylinders from overextending, and avert unnecessary wear on hinge points and tine tips with heavy duty, abrasion resistant upper and lower stops on the grapple's housing.
  • Strength you can count on. Solid construction inner tines and tips are built of high grade steel, resisting abrasion and metal-on-metal wear. Hinge points are cast eliminating weak points on the frame.
  • Increase wear life with easy to replace, cast tine tips.

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 to Maintain

  • Spend more time working with decreased maintenance time.
  • Usage before first service interval is increased up to 250 percent and ground level grease points are safer and easier to use.
  • Integral hydraulic components have been rerouted, decreasing tension on hoses and eliminating interference with materials.
  • Easy access to the hydraulics makes maintenance quicker, so more time can be spent moving materials.
  • An optional cylinder guard is available to protect hydraulic hoses from materials.
  • Maintain a safe working environment by using the Mounting Bracket Aid which allows the bracket to stay in an upright position while installing the grapple to the machine.

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 Specific Applications

  • Meet your specific needs with semi-open or closed tine style options.
    • Semi-open tines work best for applications where larger steel scrap or pipes and beams are being moved.
    • Closed tines are optimal for smaller, shredded materials.
  • GC Grapples are lighter, which make them the ideal choice for recycling applications.
  • Standard Grapples have been optimized for large and shredded scrap 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.
