RPA – Rake

DO EVERYTHING 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. Our Rake configuration is used primarily by the forestry industry. The curvature of the jaw makes this an ideal tool for handling logs in hoe chucking and chipper feeding applications. The diversity of the RPA is simply unmatched by any other type of grapple attachment 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 material handling 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.

Remove the human element and increase your operation’s efficiency immediately with this log chopping beast.
