Bobcat launches new log grapple for mini track loaders, small articulated loaders
To meet the challenging demands of landscaping and site clearing jobs, Bobcat Company has launched a log grapple attachment for mini track loaders and small articulated loaders. Whether felling trees, loading logs onto trailers or transporting material, this free-hanging grapple adds versatility to Bobcat's attachment lineup.
"The new log grapple is a solution for customers seeking maximum productivity by increasing the flexibility and versatility of an existing machine," says Britta Kopp, marketing manager at Doosan Bobcat. "This attachment delivers increased efficiency over doing tasks manually and will get the job done more quickly."
The log grapple comes equipped with heavy-duty teeth and reinforced tines, providing grip when managing unwieldy logs and brush. Rope bollards provide an additional anchor point, assisting with stability while at work.
The log grapple's 56-inch wide opening and rotation in all directions increases productivity, reliability and ease of use. The design allows for easy clamping of logs and piles of brush, clearing areas - even in confined spaces - more quickly.
For increased operator control, the log grapple comes with an integrated tree pusher, ensuring material falls in the intended direction and accomplishes multiple tasks with one attachment.
