INNOVATION AND BEAUTY UNITED

Available in 4-Tine, 5-Tine, and Mag-Grab configurations, Rotobec Orange Peel Grapples push the boundary of possibilities to a whole new level. Equipped with Rotobec’s own high pressure cylinders, and one of the industry’s only self-contained hydraulic fluid channeling system, these beasts are quickly revolutionizing the world of scrap handling. Increase your up-time, reduce your maintenance costs and dominate your competition.

A CYLINDER FOR THE AGES

SELF CONTAINED HYDRAULICS

Scrap handling is the toughest task a grapple can take on. The threat of damaged cylinders and hoses shutting down your operations is a problem faced daily by scrap material handlers. In order to protect your most precious asset, we have designed a cylinder that has revolutionized the industry. Our cylinder contains an internal hydraulic channel that eliminates the need for a return hose. This self-contained system provides you with a cylinder that is better protected and more durable than any other option on the market.

360° OF PROTECTION

INTEGRATED CYLINDER GUARD

This innovative self-contained cylinder design has allowed us to incorporate a cylinder guard that provides protection from all 3600. With no need for an opening at the back of the guard for the return hose to pass through, Rotobec Orange Peel Grapples provide an unmatched level of protection. Reduce your downtime and step into the future of scrap handling.

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED

ADVANCED HOSE PROTECTION

Hoses provide the life blood to your grapple. Their protection is essential to the efficient performance of your operation and we have gone to great lengths to ensure their safety. Our hoses are routed in a way that keeps them far from danger and we have added impenetrable guarding to prevent costly hose tears from occurring.

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. The rotators on our Orange Peel Grapples are no exception. 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. Our rotators are without a doubt the most advanced and longest lasting ever made. Why settle for anything but the best?

OUT-LIFT

All of our Orange Peel Grapples come equipped with Rotobec’s own built-in-house 5,000 PSI CYLINDERS. Our cylinders are the largest in the industry, guaranteeing a longer than average life, and feature a fully self-contained design offering an unmatched level of cylinder protection.

OUT-PERFORM

The jaws of our grapples feature a BOX STYLE STRUCTURE which provides the maximum level of strength and durability. To enhance durability further, the inner surface of our tines are built using a heavy duty 5/8” STEEL PLATE.

OUT-LAST

Our grapples feature Rotobec’s patented ADJUSTABLE MECHANICAL STOPS which compensate for the inevitable wear on your jaw tips. This feature allows you to maintain full jaw closure even after your tips are worn down. To ensure that doesn’t happen to quickly, our jaw tips are constructed from a special WEAR RESISTANT STEEL which offers 50% better abrasion resistance than typical AR-500.
