MB Crusher Presents Three New Sorting Grapple Models
Published: 21/12, 2021
MB Crusher manufactured three new models of sorting grapples are designed, and built with the company’s philosophy in mind: to simplify the work on-site, reduce the time spent processing material, and save on operational costs. Applications for the grapples include handling logs, stones, debris, poles, positioning stones for drywall, clearing branches, and many more.
The MB-G350 weighs 187.4 lb (85 kg) and is compatible with mini excavators weighing from 1 to 2.5 tons. The MB-G450 weighs 644 lb (292 kg) and can be installed on midi excavators weighing 3 to 6 tons.
Small and compact, versatile and safe, agile and precise, both grapples have a wider opening than any of the other grapples on the market. Despite being small, they can still pick up and handle large materials. They are equipped with a fall prevention valve, guaranteeing safety on the job site. The parts prone to wear are made of Hardox steel.
Both models are designed to have an electrical kit installed for dual-acting hydraulics, allowing both grapples to utilize 360° rotation, even with mini excavators that only have two hoses.
Like the larger models, the MB-G450 sorting grapple comes with interchangeable blades, which can be flipped around, extending the life of the blades. Finally, both units are offered with or without a rotation turret.
Both grapples can have accessories installed to simplify managing materials: the clamshell kit is perfect when collecting and handling small material, picking up soil, gravel, and sand. The multi-purpose blade kit helps pick up oddly shaped materials. For the MB-G450 sorting grapple, users can install the tilting lift rubber protection kit to manage angular blocks and delicate material.
For 18t to 25t excavators, there’s the new MB-G1000. Weighing at 3,560 lb (1,656 kg), the model has been reinforced without losing its agility and ease of use.
Standard features include a dual motor, which allows for greater rotation and closing force. Blancing valves installed on the hydraulic cylinder, allowing the unit to be more precise when handling materials. This new model also comes with an inclined plate, allowing the unit to work regardless of the angle, and has the 360° hydraulic rotation, allowing the grapple to pick up materials in all working conditions efficiently.
It’s also equipped with a safety valve, preventing accidental openings if the excavator’s pressure drops. There’s also a silent block, allowing the unit to work in areas where you need to be mindful of the noise.
Depending on the work, the MB-G1000 model can be equipped with a variety of accessories. The grip improvement kit for the blades allows the unit to handle materials with a better grip and greater control, perfect for materials of particular weight and shapes. The multi-purpose blade kit consists of a double blade—one side has teeth while the other is smooth. Another accessory is the tilted lift rubber protection kit, which handles angular block or delicate material. Lastly, there’s the clamshell kit to collect and handle small materials.
