Grapples are bucket attachments for heavy equipment with tines (also known as prongs) that close overtop the bottom of the bucket. This allows the grapple to pick up and transport all kinds of loose, bulky debris. Often, the bottom of the grapple bucket is also outfitted with teeth to ensure powerful grasping and gripping. The versatility of grapples make them indispensable tools for workers who would otherwise struggle to move unwieldy piles of brush or rubble. Common materials easily collected and transported by grapples include logs, branches, rocks, trash, and other debris, making grapples essential across construction, demolition, agriculture, and landscaping industries. Whether you are on a building site, or laboring on the farm, grapple attachments are likely a perfect tool to help you accomplish the work you do!
Grapples are typically attached to skid steers and tractors, and many grapples are equipped with quick-attach features which allow for fast, user-friendly attachment hook-up. Some buckets are built with multiple grappling prongs that are powered by independent hydraulic cylinders, which allows the grapples to close at different degrees and tightly secure awkwardly-shaped and uneven loads.
