BRANCH MANAGER T1031 BMG
Rotating Bypass Grapple
The original mini-grapple by Branch Manager™ with Hardox® wear plate in the body and arms.
Using Hardox® wear plate instead of our standard Grade 60 increases the strength by up to three times while also providing superior abrasion resistance.
Mounts onto all mini-loaders, coming fully assembled & ready to go to work. Speed up your forwarding operations with the BMG!
The swivel mount with "knock around" rotation means less maintenance and less weight, allowing you to lift more. We don't use locking pins on the rotation and instead prefer to heel the log with log dogs to provide a similar and intuitive function.
Customers with competitor's products have reported over the years that locking pins sheer and spring returns break.
Same large 56" opening with a light weight of 265 lbs.
With the free rotation you turn the grapple instead of your machine, saving wear & tear on both your customers' lawns & your machine
