TG12UG Sorting Grapple


Universal grab for sorting and handling of recycling materials and for forestry applications. The TG12 UG/7 grapple has four jaws on one side and three on the other side. It is of the modern bypass design where the material is held in place by force from from several directions. The jaws are made of high grade Hardox steel. This size grapple is suited for use in mini excavators, skid steer loaders and small knucklebooms. The Valby grapples can be used without a rotator, with a hanging rotator or with a rigid rotator.

• The grapple has a flat mounting plate, so it can be used with either hanging or rigid rotators.

• All Valby grapples have a bronze bushing at every joint, and every joint has a grease fitting.

• The Valby grapples have large, powerful cylinders with heavy pistons.

• A belly plate protects the cylinder from underneath.

• All Valby grapples have easily accessible grease fitting.

• The Valby bypass grapples have excellent geometry. The form of the claws enables a smooth roll in of the stems enabling controlled release of loads.

• The form of the jaws enables the grapple to penetrate into piles of brush, scrap, or other materials.
