GRAPPLE

Fecon® offers two different lines of Grapples to fit your skid steers and tracked carriers—the Front Grapple and the Root Grapple. Grapples are the perfect forestry attachment for tree care and landscaping applications.

  • Front Grapple with 72” opening and 360° rotation
  • Root Grapple with a rigid frame and front tines

The Front Grapple is perfect for brush and tree removal, transporting, loading and placing logs and rocks with a skid steer. It offers a 60” opening, 360° rotation, and a load capacity of 9,990 lbs. It features a heavy-duty frame for long-term performance and heavily serrated contained plates to secure logs both perpendicular and parallel to the loader.

The Root Grapple was designed with a rigid frame and serrated AR400 front tines for ripping and grabbing. This grapple is excellent for clearing brush and removing debris and logs. The 41”depth, 72” length, and 37” open clamp height make this grapple perfect for grabbing and holding awkward shaped material. The Fecon Root Grapple is also available in a bucket version.

Applications

  • Material Handling & Support Services

    Material handling can be accomplished by use of grapples for skid steers, excavators, and PTO tractors. Utility Tracked Vehicles (UTVs) can be used to transport equipment or materials, and provide fuel and mechanical services on the job site.

  • Bioharvesting

    With the push from the government and the private sector for clean, renewable fuel sources, there are many outlets for woody biomass that were not available in the past. There are many methods to harvest and process this material that were previously prohibitive due to the high cost in certain applications. Slash piles left in the woods and small diameter material are great sources of biomass. And Fecon offers purpose built equipment to enable operators to profitably harvest these sources.

  • Forest Wood Fuel Removal

    There are many equipment options for ladder fuel and underbrush removal including tracked or wheeled forestry mulching machines, mulching attachments and tree shears. Forestry mulchers are a tool to consider for mulching fire lines. And after the fire is out and clean up efforts are under way, it is important to ensure minimal water pollution and soil erosion.
