Overview

Grab and hold onto the toughest materials with the industrial grapple attachment.

Built for maximum power and reliability, the industrial grapple delivers easy handling of hard-to-manage materials in the industrial or construction setting. The two-arm design of larger industrial grapples provides strong, even biting force. With hydraulic controls, it’s easy to operate and can securely handle bulky or uneven loads. Smaller grapples have a single grapple arm.

Choose from a bucket or fork bottom for maximum load capability. Built for day-in, day-out duty, the industrial grapple sinks in to the toughest jobs all day, every day.

Closing Force Challenge

Strong closing force helps you bite into materials, secure them and pull them away. In this test, we evaluated the closing force of several grapples. See why Bobcat industrial grapples offer the force to handle stubborn materials and work faster.

Visibility Challenge

Good sight lines are critical to sorting debris, securing odd-shaped objects, clamping tree limbs and more. In this simple comparison, you'll discover how Bobcat industrial grapples offer better views that lead to greater efficiency.
