02 Features

Easy Rolling

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 knuckleboom loader operators to achieve optimal productivity, no matter how crooked the wood may be. Increase your efficiency and outlift the competition every time.

Self Contained Hydraulics

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. Our CDS Technology cylinder, offered on the HD & SHD lines, contains an internal hydraulic channel that eliminates the need for a return hose. This self-contained system provides you with a cylinder that is better protected and more durable than any other option on the market. Want less downtime and less damaged cylinders? Try our CDS technology for yourself. You will not look back.

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. Why settle for anything but the best?
