To help hardscaping needs on a jobsite, Paladin Attachments has introduced the Bradco Hardscape Grapple.
The grapple is designed to help move heavy hardscape materials from place to place.
Mounted on skid steers, compact tool carriers and compact tractors, the grapple can handle materials such as concrete paver sections, small boulders and granite/limestone/concrete steps.
The attachment’s grapple arms and rubber grips are hydraulically powered and adjust automatically to the shape and contour of the material being grasped.
For safety purposes, a cylinder check valve prevents loss of clamping force even if the machine’s hydraulic power is lost.
The attachment has a stand utilizing two steel tubes that have been integrated and can be stored in the quick attach when not in use.
Weighing 175 pounds, the attachment can lift up to 1,500 pounds with a clamp force of 1,525 pounds. The grapple is designed with a grip range of 18 to 48 inches, a plunge depth minimum of 13 inches and a maximum reach of 14 inches.
