Cat® Contractors' Grapples are a proven product built for your high-volume material handling needs. Designed for long-lasting durability, Contractors' Grapples are made to help you in the toughest of applications.

Strong and Durable

  • Wide surface area for demolition and material handling applications with a rigid, box-type design.
  • Penetrate, securely grasp, and retain materials better with two-over-three interlocking tines.
  • Keep an eye on your work with long, wide-spaced tines for better visibility.
  • Tips, wrapper, and wear strips are made of AR400 steel, for long-lasting, durability in the harshest applications.

Increase Productivity

  • Debris loads and unloads seamlessly without catching due to the tips mounted flush with the wrapper.
  • Optimize material flow and penetration into piles with less curvature in the lower jaw.
  • Maintain high-volume production when using the grapple pinned to the machine or with a Pin Grabber Coupler.
  • Purpose-designed to match their respective machine sizes for maximum performance in break out and lift capacity.
  • Share your grapple across similar-sized excavators for maximum utilization with the use of replaceable pins to match different linkages.
  • Capacities calculated according to SAE standard J2754, an industry-leading standard for fabricated grapples.
  • Optimal for applications such as: structural demolition, material handling and sorting, loading and unloading rock, scrap, pipe, waste material, and other debris.

Easy to Maintain

  • No need for added hydraulics or hoses. Contractors' Grapples utilize the bucket linkages for operation.
  • Long-lasting, field-serviceable tips have extended service life without extra weight.
  • Jaws stay connected when the grapple pin is removed with the advanced modular pin hub system.
  • Field-install an extreme duty wear package for extra protection on your grapple.
