Log grapples PTO-L
Light type timber grab
The log grapples of the PTO/L line are the most common, light duty equipment for agriculture. These wood grapples are generally mounted on mini-excavators and agriculture machines which are not intended for an intense work. The single hydraulic cylinder provides the right grip for the specific application.
The log grapples come in many sizes and shapes adapted to various log and tree-length handling situations such as sorting, loading, unloading, etc. They are designed to be installed on knuckleboom re-handlers and rubber-tyre or track excavators converted for logging. IDROBENNE offers a complete program of fast, smooth and reliable round wood grapples, with an high level of productivity.
The top of the grapple can be adapted for mounting of most rotators. The hydraulic continuous rotation enhance the versatility and productivity of the equipment. IDROBENNE offers a great choice of top quality hydraulic rotators, which provide the right torque, load capacity and reliability.
The safety valve is fitted as standard.
The arms of the attachments are set in motion by one hydraulic cylinder, equipped with a safety locking valve.The opening and closing of the shells is synchronized.The optimised design allows small grab diameters. This means that even small timber can be securely handled.
Log grapples are made using high tensile strength steel (WELDOX – DOMEX) for structural parts and use wear plates (HARDOX) for parts in contact with the handled materials, such as the blades. Induction hardened chrome pins and bushings are used in all grapple junction points.
The log grabs must be mounted on operating machines through a cardan link that allows “pendulum” movement in the four horizontal directions. IDROBENNE can supply custom-made links for any operating machine on the market
