THE LOGGING INDUSTRY’S VERSATILITY SPECIALIST

Forestry and mill operations often require a grapple capable of handling a variety of different types and volumes of wood. The Rotobec Combination Grapple features a bypassing jaw design that allows operators to easily and efficiently handle single logs or full cords of pulpwood. The unique jaw shape allows for optimal log rolling making it incredibly easy to grab a full load every time. Our Combination Grapples are also available with a positioned rotation which allows for an unbeatable level of control over your grapple and your load.

 

THE PERFECT CURVE

 

EASY ROLLING

Our Combination Grapples feature the same jaw curvature used on our Pulpwood Grapple attachments. The unique design allows logs to easily roll along the inside face of the jaw, guaranteeing a full load each and every time.

HI-TECH DESIGN

 

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS

Anyone can make a tough grapple, but we have taken it one step further. Our engineers have used a method called Finite Element Analysis in the design of our combination grapple, guaranteeing an optimal strength to weight ratio.

THE KING OF ROTATORS

WE’RE CALLED ROTO-BEC FOR A REASON 

For the last 40 years, Rotobec has been pushing the boundaries of innovation in the world of rotator design. In addition to standard 360rotation and a fully supported pinion gear, all of our rotations are fully sealed, allowing them to be fully submersed in up to 15 feet of water.

QUALITY CONTROL

 

BUILT IN-HOUSE CYLINDERS

Each Rotobec cylinder is designed, fabricated and assembled in-house to guarantee the absolute best quality. Our Combination Grapples come standard with our 5,000 psi (345 bar) high pressure cylinders, which offer exceptional closing force and an unbeatable level of durability.

 

out-lift

Rotobec Combination Grapples feature the same JAW CURVATURE used on our Pulpwood Grapples. The unique design allows logs to easily roll along the inside face of the jaw. The grapples were also designed using a FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS, guaranteeing an optimal strength to weight ratio.

out-perform

The 5,000 PSI CYLINDERS provide an exceptional level of closing force, allowing heavy equipment operators to maintain their load securely. An available BUTT-PLATE can be added to help operators handling large volumes of wood keep their stacks neat and tidy.

out-last

Rotobec grapples simply last longer than others and the Combination Grapple is no exception. The SINGLE PIN DESIGN provides an increase in durability and a decrease in maintenance costs. The BOX-TINE structure increases durability and the MECHANICAL JAW STOPS protect your cylinders from over-extension when the jaws are in fully closed position.
