Our heavy duty Mechanical Grapple is designed for serious material handling work

The five finger Mechanical Grapple is driven by the excavator bucket cylinder and as has a geometric reaction with a stiff arm pinned to a bracket on the dipper arm of the machine.

As the bucket cylinder is opened or closed, the jaws are either opened or closed to grapple all types of application that require heavy duty and extensive lift, carry or load operations such as cleaning sites, performing demolition work, loading/unloading green waste, logs, recycling, scrap and rocks. With 3 fingers facing the excavator cabin and the two interlocking fingers away from the cab, safety is assured as any logs, reinforcing mesh, or other long materials are bent or broken away from the operator.

The Mechanical Grapple has been the grapple of choice in the demolition and logging industry for many years due to its robustness and simplicity.

Their ability to handle irregularly shaped loads and loose materials makes them an essential tool for reprocessing, sorting and demolition works. Our grapples do not require additional hydraulics.

We have a number of eiengineering Mechanical Grabs and Sieve Buckets that are absolute BOMB PROOF! We highly recommend their service and the quality product they produce.

  • Five Finger Construction – Better handling of awkward materials more flexibility and versatility.
  • Interlocked Webbed Design – Gives greater strength through grapple construction reducing maintenance and replacement costs.
  • Designed for Safety – Engineered with sensible loading capacity in mind, safety is guaranteed.
  • Replaceable Finger Plates – Weld-on finger plates if required make replacement easier. They also decrease maintenance and replacement time and costs.
  • Heavy duty robust construction for increased lateral strength and durability.
  • Specially designed for superior performance, ease of use and efficiency.
  • Adjustable 3-Hole Dipper Bracket – The dipper bracket allows the grapple to be held at 3 different positions and hence easily handle irregular objects.
  • Hardened Bushes – Increases bush life, makes replacement easier and reduces maintenance and replacement costs.
  • Easy-Lock Stay Arm Attach – eiengineering’s Quick Attach mechanism ensures quick, easy arm alignment and attachment from the cab without any heavy lifting (only available upwards of 7 tonne machines).
  • High Strength Steel Construction – Offers robust build as it is 3 times stronger than mild steel and 3 times more abrasion resistant. As a result, it reduces maintenance and replacement costs.
  • eie80 Grade is 3 times stronger than mild steel and 3 times more abrasion resistant. Means longer working life of the attachment and less downtime on expensive repairs or modifications.
  • Larger Welds – Makes attachment construction more robust, increases life and reduces service and replacement costs.
  • Safe and OH&S Compliant – Designed to comply with stringent safety requirements.
  • Fitted to All Excavators – Whether they do or don’t have a quick hitch fitted.
  • Wear Protection – Extra wear protection on grapple fingers is available for abrasive applications.

Note: Pins are included as part of the package. Simple purchase and fit. No extra costs.
