Valby SSGR36 Grapple

The Valby skid-steer grapple has an opening of 36 inches, and their rotators have over 700 foot-pounds of torque. They require two sets of hydraulic outlets from the skid-steer. One pair runs the continuous rotator; the other pair opens and closes the jaws. If the loader has only one pair of hydraulic outlets, one must order the grapple with a Solenoid operated diverter valve, which splits the oil flow so both the rotator and the opening and the closing of the grapple can be preformed. This attachment enables the skid steer to be used for moving, stacking and loading chores on the landing, or in the yard. The skidding grapple is equipped with a Bob Cat Quick Attach mounting plate. The skidsteer grapples are of the modern bypass type. These grapples close to a tight minimum opening. Movement of the logs during transport is minimized because the grapple secures the log on the top, bottom, and both sides. A belly plate protects the cylinder from underneath. The form of the claws enables a smooth roll-in of the stems.
