Grapple Bucket- Severe Duty

This brutal grapple comes from years of input from demolition contractors and recyclers. The Severe duty model combines features from our demolition series, our extreme duty model and some new features to offer one of the most effective and durable grapple buckets in the industry. The bolt-on-sides allows the operator to contain more material if needed or remove them for handling longer products like pipe or trees.

The pivot points are designed for the heavy continuous use seen in large recycling and scrap metal facilities. The pivot pins are 1.25 diameter and are housed in bushings with grease fittings. The upper clamps use 2 heavy gauge cross members and solid plate protects the bottom of the cylinder. The no pinch hose routing will help prevent downtime from crushed hoses.

Other areas given special attention in this model were the cylinder tower construction and the floor of the grapple. These two areas are high impact areas in this application. The floor is heavily reinforced with braces underneath that transfer the impact to the rear cross tube.

  • No pinch hose routing
  • Bolt-on-sides
