Tigercat expands grapple attachment line for loggers, loaders, and shovel loggers
Tigercat has started to grow its line of grapple attachments in an effort to provide branded attachments that integrate with Tigercat loggers, loaders, and shovel loggers.
The new butt-n-top and shovel clam grapples are built with boxed-style steel jaws. Replaceable tine tips on the grapples are made from abrasion-resistant steel.
Cushioned cylinders and a soft-start and stop slew hydraulic circuit prevent structural shock loads and promote extended grapple life while providing ample speed and torque for excellent performance.
Hydraulic hoses are routed on top of the boom and under the connecting pin to best protect the hoses from damage. The BT08 butt-n-top and SC08 shovel clam grapples are ideal to maintain with easy access to service points and critical components. A sealed electrical box protects electrical components from the elements.
Features of Tigercat's BT08 butt-n-top grapple
With a 0.7 m2 (8 ft2) load capacity area, the BT08 butt-n-top grapple is designed to match up to the 865, 875E, and 880E series loggers and the design provides control of tree-length timber. The jaw profile can roll the logs into the load area to maximize load size and minimize cycle times.
Features of Tigercat's SC08 shovel clam grapple
The new Tigercat SC08 shovel clam grapple is designed for the LS855E and LSX870D shovel loggers. The shovel clam grapples also has a 0.7 m2 (8 ft2) load capacity. The attachment provides an alternative to dangle-style log and bunching grapples. The SC08 can enhance shovel logger functionality and productivity by increasing control of the trees and the speed at which the operator can gather and manipulate bunches.
