Grapple Saws

Hydraulic grapple saws can increase safety and speed up the handling of wood in your operation.

Fitted to almost any excavator, log loader, shovel logger or chipper crane, a grapple saw expands the capability of your machine.


Forest Centre supplies the largest range of grapple saw products in Australia, to suit large and small carriers. Feeding a chipper, cross-cutting and butt-trimming, a grapple saw bucks over-length and forked stems so you don’t have to waste time getting another crew or machine to help.

Man-on-the-ground risks are reduced, especially in dangerous projects such as storm clean-up with downed tree limbs under tension. A grapple saw is the ultimate vibration-free chainsaw with effortless fingertip control, all from the safety and comfort of the operator’s cabin.

Forest Centre offers three main different types of grapple saw solutions for professional use;

  • Dangle mount grapple saws for sorting, loading and cross cutting timber from the ground
  • Two position dangle mount compact felling grapples for trimming branches and vertical stems in addition to sorting and loading
  • Heavy duty positioned mount grapple saws for excavator use where precision handling on every axis is required
