    GO TO EXTREMES WITH PIERCE POWER GRAPPLES.

    Pierce power grapples are built tough to stand up to the rigors of log loading, handling, sorting, decking, unloading, hoe-chucking, and brush piling. Not to mention extreme climate and working conditions.

    Our power grapples feature pin-on or quick coupler lugging for excavators, roadbuilders, and log loaders alike. And each is designed to offer controlled articulation and positioning from the excavator’s tool cylinder.

    Pierce power grapples feature 360º continuous rotation and include open/close/rotate proportional control for added versatility.

    POWERFUL PLUSES.

    • 360° continuous rotation and heavy-duty main bearing allows for controlled loading from side or rear of log trailer.
    • “Valve in head” configuration minimizes machine’s hydraulic requirements.
    • Dual-drive, high-torque rotation for superior speed and power.
    • Rugged, durable design for long life span.

    POWER GRAPPLE FEATURES:

    • T-1 steel for superior strength and AR400 for abrasive-resistant surfaces.
    • Common upper structure integrates lugging interface to any machine.
    • Enclosed upper structure protects hydraulic components from debris and impact.
    • Common upper structure allows for interchangeability between various grapple arms, eliminating the need for multiple dedicated work tools.
    • (2) fixed outriggers.
    • 3×3-tine bypassing grapple arms.
    • Large diameter, 4140 HRHT alloy pins.
    • Aluminum bronze bushings.
    • 360° continuous rotation.
    • 2 heavy-duty cylinders with high-pressure seals.
    • Heavy-duty, high pressure hydraulic swivel.
    • “Valve in head” configuration minimizes machine’s hydraulic requirements.
    • Open/close/rotate ‘proportional’ control (in lieu of ‘on/off’ control) for superior log control.
    • Momentary rotational float allows payload’s momentum to pivot work tool.
    • Direct coupled rotate drive with double-supported pinion gear and (2) high output,dual drive motors.
    • Rugged main bearing with large capacity through-bolted external gear slewing ring.
    • Easy access to all service and maintenance locations.
    • Front access door pivots open while main valve slides out for easy serviceability to a difficult-to-reach location.
    • Bolt-on service covers protect main bearing and other serviceable locations.
    • Pin-on or quick change lugging for any excavator, roadbuilder and log loader.

    PIERCE ATTACHMENTS: POWER ON!

    Pierce power attachments are specially made to stand up to the rigors of heavy construction, forestry, demolition, and extreme climate and work conditions. They’re also perfect for ground level demolition, road building, and heavy-duty excavation.

    Each Pierce power attachment offers superior operational control with open/close/rotate proportional functions. And all offer controlled articulation and positioning from the excavator’s bucket cylinder and linkage. Our power attachments can also be adapted to quick couplers for further versatility.

    PROJECT: T-REX.

    Specially developed for a nuclear reactor removal project for the Department of Energy, this power attachment with a clamshell configuration was designed to achieve a very high performance factor-to-weight/size ratio. It is ideal for dislodging and grappling materials such as cast-iron slabs
    and blocks, structural steel, rubberized concrete, rectangular graphite bars, and miscellaneous tubing up to 4” in diameter. The bucket’s severing feature makes it easy to reduce material size for easier handling, without having to change to a standard shear.
