The new grapple range meets the customer’s needs and the highest safety standards, with all grapples coming as standard with a load control valve included. The main areas of focus were on 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,” says Bastiaan Cassiman, Product Manager Attachments. “Their heavy-duty design ensures that they hold up in even the toughest conditions.” He concludes: “These grapples are designed to handle anything from primary and secondary demolition to recycling”.

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