RPA – Compaction


The Rotobec Power Attachments (RPA) are up for anything. Each configuration is available with either a dangle rotation or one of Rotobec’s incredible RGP positioned rotations. The Waste Compaction RPA configuration can be used as a bucket. It is also used in waste transfer stations for compacting incoming trash. The diversity of the RPA is simply unmatched by any other type of grapple available. Backed by Rotobec’s industry leading, 18 month/ 3,000 hour warranty and our world class service, the RPA is quite simply the world’s greatest power attachment.

Rotation innovation


Rotobec is famous for many things but we got our start building the world’s most advanced continuous 3600 rotators. Our RGP positioned rotators come standard with bolt-on lugging. This technology makes the installation process a breeze and allows for the attachment to be transferred easily between machines increasing the versatility of your operation.



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, even when a Grapple Saw has been added.

Quality Control


All of our Rotobec Power Attachments come equipped with Rotobec’s own built-in-house 5,000 psi cylinders. Our cylinders are the largest in the industry guaranteeing a longer than average life. To ensure their safety, they are also protected by robust 3/8” steel cylinder guarding.

All of our Rotobec Power Attachments come equipped with Rotobec’s own built-in-house 5,000 PSI CYLINDERS. Our cylinders are the largest in the industry guaranteeing a longer than average life. They are also protected by robust 3/8” steel CYLINDER GUARDING.


The RPA jaws feature a BOX STYLE STRUCTURE which provides the maximum level of strength and durability. To enhance durability further, we have incorporated an INTERLOCKING DESIGN on the head structure and the cylinder guards.


MECHANICAL STOPS have been engineered into the grapple design to protect the cylinder from over/under extension. Our RGP positioned rotations feature a FULLY SUPPORTED PINION GEAR to prevent pinion bending, which will cause significant damage to your gears. The RPA also features OVERSIZED, CHROMED AND HARDENED PINS, which will drastically extend the life of your grapple.
