Available in various models to suit excavator sizes ranging from 5 – 30 metric tons (11,000 – 66,000 lbs) operating weight. The fork grapple is popular among customers who seek to reduce cycle time as their top priority.


Fork Grapple is a relatively new design under the Grapple family. The design was tweaked from a conventional grapple for material handling applications, light demolition, recycling and scrap industries. Its lightweight, 2-tine over 3-tine frame design provides extraordinarily rapid grappling action, reducing cycle time and increasing productivity. Internal structures within each tine are heavily reinforced to ensure maximum rigidity.

Unlike the conventional grapple design where a stiff arm is mandatory, in the case of a fork grapple, the use of stiff arm is totally eliminated. As a result, both jaws open and close simultaneously in a single action, which translate into 2x the opening and closing speed of jaws as compared to typical stiff-arm grapple, and yet with a very firm clamping force. Each tine is serrated with wear strips, provides additional protection on each tine as well as enhancing the gripping strength of irregularly shaped items.

Here are the key specifications for this product model.
