The twin cylinders* in the standard grapple provide low and even shaft loading, which means less wear. The design of the claws allows the logs to roll in gently, fills the grapple efficiently, and ensures that the load stays in place. This grapple works quickly and easily on all types of material.
FOR TOUGH JOBS
Our most powerful grapple is designed for heavy lifting and tough jobs. This makes them particularly suitable for clear-cutting forwarders etc. The steel plates are thicker, the rotator plate is larger, the lower boom tubes are reinforced, which combine to make the Heavy Duty our stiffest grapple.
MAXIMISE FOREST YIELD
The Bio model has been designed for quick, easy handling of slash and waste material, parts of trees and other material that is to be chipped to BioFuel, either directly into chippers during felling, or later from a stockpile. The Bio model uses reinforced boom tubes and twice the material thickness in the claws. The Bio also has mechanical end stops, which prevents the cylinders from bottoming. There is also a widened Bio model for stump handling etc.
THE EASY WAY TO SORT TIMBER
The V-Shape is similar to our standard grapple, and has been specially designed to make fine sorting easier. Ground contact is minimised, using a V-Shape. Since the tip of the claw is centred, force distribution is not affected and the risk of uneven loading is eliminated in practice.
FOR XTREME JOBS IN TOUGH ENVIRONMENTS
Our HDX Apple is built for the extremely demanding work of large forwarders, skitters or excavators when handling tree-length logs. The HDX is heavily reinforced, featuring a one-piece, bent base plate fitted with expander guards, reinforced parallel rods, and mechanical claw stops for cylinder protection. Options include load-holding kits and Xtra claw reinforcements.
EFFECTIVE TIMBER HANDLING
Our terminal grapple is designed to handle large of volumes of wood at sawmills, timber terminals, harbour facilities etc. Its stable and robust design makes it both reliable and user friendly. The Terminal closes tip to tip, and it has twin chains that keep the timber in place even when the grapple does not have a full load.
FOR HEAVY LIFTING
Terminal LB (LowBuilt) grapple is similar to the normal terminal grapple and has the same excellent handling. It has been designed for efficient loading of large volumes of goods. The Terminal LB is basically a large HeavyDuty. i.e. a large grapple with overlapping claws. We offer two different types of grapple, Terminal and Terminal LB, to do the same job. Choose the one that suits you best.
Our terminal buckets is designed for an effective handling of bulk material and to handle large of volumes of bulk material at sawmills, timber terminals, harbour facilities etc. Its stable and robust design makes it both reliable and user friendly. The buckets are optimized to easily fill as well as empty the bulk material with high productivity. The terminal buckets come in sizes from 4m3 to 12m3
The Construction is our premium grapple, which probably opens wider than any other grapple. It is designed to be mounted on an excavator, and has a unique stand that uses heavier plate, bent in one piece, and no welded side pieces. The load retention valve* and piston accumulator* are installed inside the stand, integrated with the hydraulic system. Construction can do heavy lifting, and is extremely stable at the same time.
QUICK, EASY LIFTING OF STONES AND SCRAP
The Sorting grapple is particularly suitable for use in building and construction sites as well as recycling facilities. It’s equipped with a load retention valve and piston accumulator that are fitted inside the stand, integrated with the hydraulic system. Sorting can manage heavy lifting and is extremely stable at the same time. Unlike Construction, this grapple closes tip to tip.
LIFTING SCRAP, STUMPS AND PARTS OF TREES
A special development for the recycling industry, our RC grapple is ideal for fast and easy handling and sorting of varying materials, such as junk, scrap and recyclable wood. The RC has more and stronger claw tines as well as mechanical stops preventing the cylinders from reaching their end positions. For work with wood recycling, stumps and tree limbs on a daily basis, the RC also comes in an extra wide Heavy-Duty (HD+) design.
AS REQUESTED BY THE SAWMILLS
The Industry model has been specially designed for the sawmill industry, but can also be installed on other applications. Industry has three claws, for easy separation and grasping of single logs. Industry features low profile design, it is wider and thus more stable, without compromising ease of operation.
FOR CHIPS AND OTHER BULK MATERIALS
The new generation of chip buckets is based on our time-tested, successful grapple technology and comes in sizes from 0.15 to 1.5 m3. The buckets have been specifically developed for chip handling and optimum function inside chip vans and on the ground. They can also be adapted to other bulk materials such as ballast and fillers.
FAST AND FLEXIBLE
Bucket halves for chip handling are available as accessories for Standard, HD, BIO and Construction grapples in 150-2500 litre sizes. These bucket halves are suitable for the 015-100 HSP Gripen and mean that you quickly switch from the timber grapple to the chip bucket and vice versa. Quick and easy. These buckets are also available in a narrower design for clearing out ditches and the like. You can switch over in less than 20 minutes. Saving both time and money for your business. Why make it more complicated?
FOR EXACT LENGTHS
The saw cassette for both excavator- and rotator attachment is a smart accessory for example, length cutting, cutting bioenergy materials or tree parts. Also suitable on service vehicles such as multi-use backhoe loaders. This is possible by the brand new excavator attachment. Ideal for cutting and clear cutting work in city environments or in association with storm damages. Individually adaptable for each grapple model or excavator attachment. Adapted for assembly on HSP Gripen 025, 028, 035, 040, 055 and 080 models.
