What is a Hydraulic Grapple?
Hydraulic grapple is an excavator attachment that looks like the gaping mouth of a large animal. This excavator attachment allows the operator to pick up heavy material like rocks, logs, and stumps. It is a dynamic piece of equipment capable of lifting up to 23 tons, making it ideal for moving stuff around the site.
A hydraulic grapple is basically a series of hydraulically driven steel fingers mounted on top of an arm. The fingers open and close with a powerful hydraulic cylinder, creating a solid grip on an object. This allows operators to pick up large items without much effort or complex movements.
How to choose a hydraulic grapple?
Different models have different features, and choosing the best one can be a daunting task. Choose your grapple depending on how you plan to use it.
If you are planning to lift large-sized rocks, logs, or other objects, make sure that the grapple has sharp teeth so that it can grab the material without getting stuck. If you plan to lift something with a round shape, make sure the grapple has serrated teeth all around its circumference.
Make sure you choose a grapple depending on your requirement. A smaller width will allow it to fit into tighter spaces, while a wider grip will enable it to carry heavier loads and more material.
