By Lindsay Gale23 July 2014

Genesis Equipment has announced that its GSG grapple product line is now available in 10 sizes ranging in capacity from 0.4 to 1.9 cubic metres ([0.5 to 2.5 cubic yards). They have been designed to be used with 20 to 80 tonne material handlers for use across a wide range of applications.

According to the company, they have been designed to reduce maintenance, improve durability, lower operating costs and enhance safety, Each model features identical hardened steel bearings with dust seals at all pivot points to keep out contaminants and a heavy-duty cylinder guarding system that protects the cylinders and internal components that is easily removed for maintenance.

In addition, the 10 grapples feature reverse-mounted cylinders that protect rods from damage, large-bore hydraulic cylinders to maximise clamping force and long-life, abrasion-resistant steel tips that are easily replaced with a simple perimeter weld.

Genesis also provides a number of tine forms with flat- or point-tine shapes in half- or narrow-width spades for high-volume scrap processing.
