Bunching Grapple

Rotobec Bunching Grapples have been appreciated for 45 years by forestry contractors for their remarkable versatility.

Our Bunching Grapples outdo themselves in loading and unloading both short and long wood in the forest.

Their superior design ensures that the jaws do not extend beneath ground level when the bunching grapple closes, leaving behind branches and dirt. The intersecting jaw design provides a firm grip on logs regardless of their size. This incredible forestry attachment will provide you with an unmatched level of durability and productivity.

Built In-House Designed

Remove the risk of machine contamination. The threat of damaged cylinders and hoses is a common and costly problem that can quickly bring your entire operation to a grinding halt. In order to protect your most precious asset, we have designed a cylinder that has revolutionized the logging industry. Each Rotobec cylinder is designed, fabricated and assembled in-house to guarantee the absolute best quality. Our Bunching Grapples come standard with high-pressure hydraulic cylinders. Our cylinders offer bolt on heads and integrated lock valves, providing you with superior performance and cost-effective maintenance. Want less downtime and less damaged cylinders? Try Rotobec cylinders and you will not look back.

Never Drop a Log

All Rotobec grapples are recognized for their unique shape that allows wood to easily roll up the inner surface of the jaw. Our engineering team has invested an incredible amount of time into perfecting the jaw curvature of every grapple. Our jaw design allows for optimal rolling. This feature allows material handler operators to achieve optimal efficiency, no matter how crooked the wood may be. Increase your productivity and outlift the competition every time.

We’re called ROTO-BEC for a reason.

Rotobec has been pushing the boundaries of innovation in the world of rotator design. We are well-known for our innovation and developments with the most advanced continuous 360° rotators. Our rotators are without a doubt the longest lasting ever made. They offer cost effective maintenance due to easily accessible greasing points and motor, allowing them to go further and protect your investment. All of our rotations are fully sealed, allowing them to be fully submerged in up to 15 feet (3 meters) of water with the standard 360° rotation and a fully supported pinion gear. We are committed to delivering the most reliable rotations on the market, no matter where you are in the world.
