Demolition and sorting grapple lineup includes five models designed to fit a broad range of Cat hydraulic excavators, both crawler- and wheel-type, with operating weights from 22,000 to 99,200 pounds.

They are designed for severe service, using high grade, impact-resistant steel throughout, with reinforced jaws and high-wear cutting edges made of AR500 steel. The grapples feature 360-degree rotation, allowing precise positioning of the tool without moving the machine. Synchronized jaws enhance control of the grapple, allowing repeatable action cycle after cycle, and high clamping forces ensure material retention during each cycle to boost production efficiency, Cat says. Wide jaw openings, ranging from 71 to nearly 90 inches expand the working flexibility of the grapples.
