Butt’n Top Grapples

AN OLD SCHOOL GRAPPLE FOR OLD SCHOOL LOGGERS

Rotobec Butt’n Top Grapples are an excellent solution for the loading and unloading of tree length wood. These grapples feature four of Rotobec’s own 5,000 psi high pressure cylinders, which provide an unbeatable level of control and stability over your load. We offer both a bunching as well as a sorting configuration, so there is a perfect option for you regardless of the type of wood you are handling.

Quality Control

BUILT IN-HOUSE CYLINDERS

Our Butt’n Top Grapples come loaded with 4 Rotobec cylinders. Each of which is designed, fabricated and assembled in-house to guarantee the absolute best quality. The 5,000 psi (345 bar) high pressure cylinders offer exceptional closing force and an unbeatable level of durability.

HYDRAULIC INNOVATION

VALVE-ON-SWIVEL

Positioned rotators can become troublesome because of the number of channels required to simultaneously operate all of the grapple’s hydraulics. One way to achieve this is to add additional hydraulic components to your machine, but we have a far more effective, and far less expensive alternative. Our RGP rotators offer an integrated valve-on-swivel (VOS), which allows heavy equipment operators to have complete control over all movements of their grapple, without the need for adding additional hydraulics.
