Production and sale of rigid mount grapples for excavator. Idrobenne builds a large variety of forestry attachments and hydraulic timber grabs.
Idrobenne forestry attachments GRP are log grabs with two synch-mesh jaws, operated by one double-acting cylinder, with only one hydraulic circuit. Grab hoses are protected inside grab body to minimize risk of damage. The pruning grapple is set in motion by the driving of the operating machine on which it is mounted. Forestry excavator attachments are safe and efficient and intended to handle mowing, tree branches, organic waste and bulk materials. At the end of the closing movement, the Hardox 400 jaws intersect until a minimum gripping diameter is reached. This geometry grants a tight grip and a great precision in handling logs or tubes. Thanks to a finger grapple, any mini-excavator and forestry log loader can become a more versatile and multi-tasking machine. Forest rake attachment has become a must in sorting and selection of different materials. Idrobenne offers nine models, which can be mounted on excavators from 3 to 16 ton operating weight.
Unlike timber grabs, which are “pendulum-like” tools, which must be linked to the excavator’s arm through a universal joint, a rigid brush rake is mounted on the machine through a “2 axes” adapter. This system grants a rigid connection to the excavator’s boom and makes possible very fast and precise movements. The grapple attachment operates as an extension of the arm, and ensures high accuracy in the movements on forestry loaders and skid steer. Idrobenne offers adapters for rigid mounting, for quick couplers and also custom-made adapters for the most common log loader and knuckleboom loaders.
Excavator attachments forestry GRP are suitable for rigid mounting on multifunctional excavators and are capable of handling mowings, tree branches, organic waste and bulk materials.
Unlike traditional log grapples, live heel racks have a very sturdy structure, which can withstand lateral loads. The powerful cylinder acts on two jaws made of HARDOX 400, whose tips intersect while closing until a minimum gripping diameter is reached. This feature makes these grippers suitable for the precise handling of long objects (logs or pipes). Forestry grapples rigid have also many similarities with traditional timber grab for sale. The similarities lay in the same construction materials, such as high-tensile steel Weldox and Domex 690 for the structure and wear-resistant steel Hardox 400 for the blades and the tips. The design is essential and simple, to provide heavy duty structure and easy accessibility during regular maintenance operations. The main difference is the rigid mount of GRP line, which gives to these grapples for excavators a wider range of applications. GRPs, especially when equipped with a flat head hydraulic rotator, rigid mount on the excavator's arm, are the most versatile tools for forestry, agriculture, environmental architecture and handling of various materials. No traditional log grapple for excavator nor timber grab for sale can operate in the same way as a brush rake.
Idrobenne Log Grabs can be fitted to a wide range of excavators, telehandlers, tractors, forwarders or skidders Cranes, Telescopic lifters, Front loaders, etc. Originally manufactured in Italy, where the company also builds orange peel grapples, clamshell buckets, crane forks, tree shears, tree felling. For more than 25 years now, GRP grapples are the ideal tree-work solution. Thanks to its ingenious design, it’s possible to install the forestry grapple within minutes to your excavator. Taken together with the high level of durability, low maintenance, low fuel consumption and reduced man hours, the total costs of ownership are minimal and will boost the profitability of your business. Given the quality of the construction materials and the reliability of the design, it is not difficult to find a used finger grapple. In particular, at its headquarters of Isorella (Brescia), Northern Italy, Idrobenne can often offer used or overhauled organic waste grapple, with warranty.
