Why you need a Grapple Bucket

X-treme Grapple Bucket

Unlock Efficiency: Discover the Power of the Grapple Bucket!

Any land owner that has cleared trees off of their land has seen how hard it can be to gather brush up into a manageable pile for disposal. While brush is one of the worst offenders to land, it is not the only one, stumps, debris, roots, all of these things along with brush are not easily removed without the proper tools.

A regular tractor or skid steer bucket is designed to dig, hold, and move dirt, and have wide open tops that do not allow you to easily stack long material like brush on them, they simply don’t do a good job in these areas. Using the universal skid steer quick attach, you can install a grapple bucket in a matter of minutes, and really start moving these problem piles to their proper locations.

Uses of Grapple Buckets

Grapple buckets have a lot of different uses and they also have numerous features. The primary function of a grapple bucket is to move and lift oddly shaped and large items. These items can be trees, boulders, logs etc. Also, grapple buckets can be used for transporting construction materials like bags or beams of concrete, etc.

Usually, landscapers use grapple buckets to remove and pull the tree from the sound. Also, it can be used for grabbing hay or say, other baled produce, to shift these items from one place to another in an easy manner. There are a lot of ways to use a grapple bucket effectively.

A grapple bucket is one such tool that is a universal attachment and it serves as a highly useful tool.

We have seen how grapple buckets have numerous uses and how they can be used for doing these tasks effectively. Grapple buckets are one of the excellent attachments used for landscaping, digging, and performing a wide range of different tasks.

To make your work easier, you can simply use the universal skid steer quickly to attach and install a grapple bucket in just a few minutes.

Clean Up

One of the best examples of a prime time to use a grapple bucket is to clean up after a storm such as a hurricane, or demolition, land clearing, etc.

The debris left over after a storm is quickly and easily handled and removed with a grapple bucket, whether it be fallen trees and limbs or demolished buildings or houses, a grapple bucket will make quick work out of cleaning it up.

Grapple Bucket choices:

We offer a few different types of grapple buckets for you to choose from.

The X-treme Skid Steer Grapple Bucket Attachment is ideal for picking up logs, rocks, and leftover building supplies or any other type of debris. It can handle more material and is intended for larger machines (65 HP and Up) than our Heavy Duty Skid Steer Grapple Bucket.

One feature that separates our X-treme Skid Steer Grapple Bucket Attachment from our competitor’s comparable attachment is the enclosed hydraulic cylinder shaft. Most grapple buckets only have the actual cylinder enclosed and not the shaft. We protect both! Anyone that ever had debris fall on the cylinder shaft knows what damage this can cause.

It features 2” bore by 10” stroke cylinders that operate independently to adjust for uneven loads. The hydraulic lines are routed inside the tubing to prevent tears. It is also built with top-quality steel, oversized points, and bushings. Grease fittings at every pivot point.

The X-treme Grapple Bucket Attachment has a 1” x 6” cutting edge. Every unit exceeds the lifting capacity of the skid steer machine it is attached to.

Another choice is a lighter-duty grapple bucket: Dimensions of 36″ deep, 22″ tall, 5/8″ tongs, 3/8″ sides, 3/16″ bucket and 2″x 10″ cylinder, weight 680-840lbs.  This does the same job, but a lighter duty.
