SG36HD Print E-mail


The Valby SG36HD is a small universal/stone grapple for mini-excavators, farm tractor forwarders and 3-point hitch knuckleboom loaders.  It is usually paired with an R3 rotator.  This combination also works well on small backhoes, converting them into efficient material handlers.  A universal grapple is a good choice when you have a wide variety of materials to pick and move.

The main features are:

  • The SG36HD is manufactured from Hardox steel. Hardox is a very hard and durable steel used by quality manufacturers for grapples that require exceptional strength.
  • The "HD" version means this model has extra plating in high-stress areas of the grapple body, and thicker steel in the jaws. This allows the grapple to be used with rigid rotators in high-stress applications.
  • This grapple has a two-pronged jaw on one side, and a single jaw on the other. The inside of each jaw is constructed with a wear plate of thick Hardox steel for high strength. The pinch pressure is 6,638 pd/ft. This design is ideal for lifting stones, construction debris or other odd shapes.
  • The jaws are shaped like "fingers" so they penetrate easily into piles of brush or logging slash. The design of the SG36HD makes it a superb all-around utility grapple.
  • A large, powerful cylinder.
  • Double connection rods for good balance and less stress.
  • belly plate to protect the cylinder from underneath.
  • An excellent geometry. The bypass design of the jaws enables a smooth roll-in and roll-out of the logs, enabling a controlled grab or release. See the Motion Drawing below.
