GX28-50 Print E-mail
GX28-50Universal grab for sorting and handling recycling materials, as well as forestry applications. The GX28-50* grapple has four massive claws on one side and three on the other.  It is a bypass design, so the material is always held tighly and securely. This grapple is suited for use on very large excavators and log loaders.  It can be mounted with either a hanging rotator or a rigid rotator.

The main features are:
  • The GX28-50 is manufactured using Hardox 400 HB steel. Hardox is a very hard and durable steel used by quality manufacturers for grapples that require exceptional strength.
  • Large, powerful cylinders with heavy pistons.
  • A belly plate to protect the cylinder from underneath.
  • The individual claws are shaped like fingers, enabling the grapple to penetrate into piles of brush. However, sorting grapples are also adept at grabbing logs, scrap, or other materials.
  • An excellent geometry. The form of the claws enables a smooth roll-in and roll-out of the load, enabling a controlled grab or release. See the Motion Drawing below.
