Vosch rotating grapple saw
The heavy duty positioned mount rotating grapple for all timber handling applications, equipped with 3/4″ saw unit.
Today when it comes to tree handling tasks, contractors in civil works and vegetation management are exploring increased safety and efficiency benefits beyond the scope of typical fixed or rotating grabs. In many cases these can be achieved without the need to delve into forestry-specific felling or harvesting heads.
Vosch grapples fit neatly into this category of forest-duty excavator grapples, and are exceptionally robust thanks to the use of the highest quality steel and design origins in demolition. A heavy duty 360 degree rotation turntable with up to four rotation motors provides high torque and precision handling at any angle. Flexibility is afforded by quick hitch attachment, freeing the machine up for use with other work tools if required.
When equipped with a saw unit the Vosch grapple is transformed into a robust and efficient grapple saw, well suited for continuous professional use cutting and sorting in the most demanding conditions.
