Anvil Attachments debuts its scrap grapple intended for material handling from ships & barges.

Anvil's diesel hydraulic scrap grapple can be configured with either a turbo charged air cooled diesel engine, or water cooled diesel engine, in a range up to 150 HP, depending on the environment. The grapple has several engine access panels for easy access and maintenance.

The grapple tines are completely configurable to user and material handling preference with five tine options from small-blade, to lower enclosed, up to full enclosed. The tines are modular and crafted using high strength alloy steel for maximum wear resistance and every tine is powered with a 5-inch cylinder. These cylinders are custom designed and feature inertia welded rod eyes for maximum strength.

Jon Craft, President of Anvil Attachments, said, “Our goal was to get the design right the first time, that is why we spent over a year on design and development. Our engineers used our Finite-Element Analysis software to its full capabilities, this way we ensure that this grapple provides maximum strength and payload for the weight. Based off of our initial field test and customer feedback, we got it right. Our first unit sold was immediately thrown into the fire, moving foot long pieces of pig iron, one of the toughest types of materials to handle, and our diesel grapple has worked with barely a glitch.”
