Pulpwood Grapples

MAXIMUM VERSATILITY

Rotobec Pulpwood Grapples are specially designed for handling short wood in piles at the road side or mill yard. Synchronized jaws and a perfectly designed jaw curvature allows for unbeatable efficiency when handling pulpwood. Optional butt plates and hold-down chain provide equipment operators with an unsurpassed level of control over their load. Ranging in capacity from 0.25 to 2 cords of 8’ wood, there is a size perfect for every operation. Equipped with Rotobec’s own 5,000 psi cylinders, and manufactured in a box style using 5/8” plate steel, our Pulpwood Grapple is quite simply the toughest around.

The perfect curve

EASY ROLLING

The Rotobec engineering team has invested an incredible amount of time into perfecting the jaw curvature of our Pulpwood Grapples. Our jaw design allows for optimal rolling, allowing operators to get the perfect bunch every time.

Hold on tight

HOLD DOWN CHAIN

An optional hold down chain can be fitted to your Pulpwood Grapple. This option will allow you to easily manage those pesky half loads and keep your operation running smoother than ever.

Keep it clean, Keep it safe

BUTT PLATES

Operators have be known to use their grapple to even out their stacks, which can cause significant damage. Our grapples are available with single or dual butt plates to help heavy equipment operators keep their stacks neat and tidy without causing any damage to the grapple’s rotator or head structure.

The King of rotators

WE’RE CALLED ROTO-BEC FOR A REASON

For the last 40 years, Rotobec has been pushing the boundaries of innovation in the world of rotator design. In addition to standard 360rotation and a fully supported pinion gear, all of our rotations are fully sealed, allowing them to be fully submersed in water up to 15 feet deep. Our rotators are without a doubt the most advanced and longest lasting ever made. Why settle for anything but the best?

Quality Control

CYLINDERS BUILT IN-HOUSE

Each Rotobec cylinder is designed, fabricated and assembled in-house to guarantee the absolute best quality. Our Pulpwood Grapples come standard with our 5,000 psi (345 bar) high pressure cylinders, which offer exceptional closing force and an unbeatable level of durability.
