RPA – Pulpwood

DO EVERYTHING AND DO IT BETTER

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 Pulpwood RPA is an alternative to our standard Pulpwood Grapples. It features a specialized jaw shape that allows it to handle large bunches in loading and unloading applications. 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

BOLT-ON LUGGING 

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.

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 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

BUILT IN-HOUSE CYLINDERS

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.

CHALLENGE

Customer needed a Power Attachment that would allow bunching of various size logs, without jams.

CUSTOM SOLUTION

This modification prevents jamming of small logs, ensuring less downtime removing jammed logs from the attachment. The jaws of this RPA – Pulpwood have a Pulpwood Grapple configuration style and the inside area (tip to tip) is a perfect 8 ft2, so as to not overload the material handler. This heavy duty grapple was specifically designed to work in extreme applications.
