Our mechanical grapple hire range will have the grapple to suit your project, with grapple attachments to fit excavators with an operating weight ranging from 20 to 50 tonnes.
The grapple sits on the end of the arm of the excavator. The operator manipulates the excavator grapple by moving the bucket ram. It is generally used to move items such as logs, pipes, dirt, and stones.
When it is not attached to a machine, a typical excavator grapple looks more like the claw of a bird. There are usually approximately three to four claw-like tines on each side of the grapple. The attachment is affixed to the excavator via two or more bars that sit on top of it. There is a hinge that holds both sides of the grapple together and enables it to open and close.
