The root grapples are a necessity in the tree industry, and for contractors clearing a lot for home site building. They are ideal for moving logs, brush, rocks or just about any type of debris, which makes them essential tools for storm damage clean up. Our root grapples are versatile attachments and come in various widths and sizes. The X-treme Duty is for the largest machines.
All of our units are built form top quality steel and will exceed the lifting capacity of the skid steer machines they are used on. Our grapples feature independently operated 2" bore by 10" stork cylinders to adjust for uneven loads. They also feature grease fittings at every pivot point.
Our Standard Duty Grapple is built form 3/8" thick steel plate on the top and bottom, and incorporates 3" square tubing. Our Heavy Duty Grapple is built from 1/2" thick steel plate on the top and bottom, and incorporates 3" square tubing. One feature that separates our Standard and Heavy Duty Root Grapples from our competitor’s attachments is that we offer optional bolt on cylinder rod covers to protect the hydraulic cylinder shafts. Most root grapples only have the actual cylinder enclosed and not the shaft. We give you the option to protect both! Anyone that has had debris fall on the cylinder shaft knows what damage this can cause.
The X-treme Root Grapple is the grapple of choice for those who need an attachment that will hold up in severe applications. It can handle more material and is more rugged than our other grapples. It is built form 1/2" thick steel plate on the top and bottom, and incorporates 4" square tubing. It also features enclosed hydraulic cylinders and shafts.
