TG55UG Sorting Grapple


Universal scrap grab for sorting and handling of waste materials and forestry applications.

This bypass grapple is ordered with jaws that have eleven claws.

• 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.
