GMT Equipment compact felling grapples

The all-in-one grapple saw solution for pruning, felling and transporting trees.


Are you looking for an efficient and safe all-in-one solution for tree maintenance or removal?

Manufactured in The Netherlands, GMT Equipment attachments are perfectly suited to any machine that can handle a normal hydraulic grapple – whether it be a mid-sized excavator, forest machine or truck mounted crane.

  • Add cross-cutting and felling capability to almost any machine
  • Simple assembly without electrical systems, wiring or extra hydraulics
  • Increase safety and productivity without additional manpower
  • Safe tree felling, chipping or transport all in one workflow


Safely prune, fell, top, cut-to-length, load a truck or feed a chipper all in one pass, using one machine.

The GMT felling grapple saw and felling head models are suitable for storm clean up, harvesting biomass, tree maintenance or removal on public green areas, along roads or waterways. The attachments are fully compatible with any machine that can handle a normal rotating timber grapple, and there is no need for additional electrical systems or control modifications – only two hydraulic circuits (4 lines) required over the boom and existing operator controls in the cabin!

For extended use as a loading grapple the saw function can simply be turned off with a manual valve built into the grapple frame.
