The new grapple range meets the customer’s needs and safety standards, with all grapples coming as standard with a load control valve included. During the design process, the main areas of focus were low maintenance cost and a long lifetime of the attachments. This was achieved using oversized pins and bushings, a robust double-walled main frame and perforated Hardox shells.

“We can cover a wide range of crawler and wheeled excavators, going from 2,5 to 70 tonnes machine class. Their heavy-duty design ensures that they hold up in even the toughest conditions. These grapples are designed to handle anything from primary and secondary demolition to recycling.”

said Bastiaan Cassiman, Product Manager Attachments.

These sorting and demolition grapples are the first of a complete range of demolition attachments that Komatsu will continue to introduce.
