  • Move more tons per hour with faster cycle times.
  • Increase hydraulic flow capacity up to 160 percent with a new rotation system.
  • Improve your overall fill factor up to 140-200 percent because of refined tine curvature.
  • Cat Machines are pre-programmed with optimum performance settings for your grapple to maximize the pairing and efficiency of the machine and grapple.
  • Reach new heights and increase your swing control. The compact height of GSH grapples extends your capabilities and is ideal for indoor applications.

  • Grapple life is prolonged because of lighter, force distributing cast pieces in place of welds.
  • Prevent cylinders from overextending, and avert unnecessary wear on hinge points and tine tips with heavy duty, abrasion resistant upper and lower stops on the grapple's housing.
  • Strength you can count on. Solid construction inner tines and tips are built of high grade steel, resisting abrasion and metal-on-metal wear. Hinge points are cast eliminating weak points on the frame.
  • Increase wear life with easy to replace, cast tine tips.

  • Spend more time working with decreased maintenance time.Usage before first service interval is increased up to 250 percent and ground level grease points are safer and easier to use.
  • Integral hydraulic components have been rerouted and are protected inside the tine, decreasing tension on hoses and eliminating interference with materials.
  • Easy, inside-the-tine access to the hydraulics through removable panels. Panels also include dust seals to protect the critical parts inside the tines.
  • Maintain a safe working environment by using the Mounting Bracket Aid which allows the bracket to stay in an upright position while installing the grapple to the machine.

  • Meet your specific application needs with 4 or 5-tine models and optional semi-open or closed tine styles.
    • Four tines - square footprint, clean corners in rail cars and trailers. Safe grab closure for bulky goods such as car bodies.
    • Five tines - optimal retention of smaller materials.
    • Semi-open tines work best for applications where larger steel scrap or car bodies are being moved.
    • Closed tines are optimal in instances where smaller, shredded materials are the primary use.
  • GSH420 and GSH520 models now come with a standard lift eye on the bottom side of the housing where a magnet can be mounted.
  • Other GSH models have the option of including a lift eye when ordering the grapple.
