Click images to view larger
Description:

Easy-to-use and lightweight grapplesaw with tilt. The grapple saw is a combination of a high-powered chainsaw that can cut through wood within seconds, and a strong grapple that locks onto the tree allowing the operator to lower the limb to the ground in a controlled manner preventing property damage or injury to people below. Suitable for installation on various base machines.

FEATURES

  • Fast and easy to use – increases productivity
  • Stable both in felling and loading position
  • Full control over all functions – e.g. make the saw movement many times without opening the grapple.
  • Works perfectly as a traditional loading grapple
  • Easy to install
  • No additional hydraulic lines are needed – only grapple open and grapple close
  • Completely stepless control – for example, stop the tilt half way if necessary
  • Control everything safely from the ground via remote control 

Control system alternatives

  • Standard: 2 hydraulic lines (grapple open/close) + Radio-control (incl. 2 batteries and a battery charger)
  • Option: 2 hydraulic lines (grapple open/close) + Cable control 

Suitable base machines
