  This skid steer attachment is absolutely vital in the tree industry and is quickly becoming a necessity among all contractors today. We offer this unique skid steer attachment in a variety of sizes for a variety of applications: the Standard Root Grapple and the Monster Root Grapple.

  Perform 3 jobs in one ? In a single pass the root grapple rakes away debris, keeps it in a manageable pile to move around with ease, and the round bottom bar provides the necessary tool for backfill. Load or pile logs, brush, rocks, demolition debris, and many other materials. Ideal for separating dirt from rock, lumber, or building materials with ease. The larger capacity means less loading and will save both time and energy. Lower your labor costs and shorten project schedules. Hydraulic cylinders operate independently to adjust for uneven loads. Enclosed cylinders and hoses come standard to minimize maintenance. Tines curve upward in order to slide across the land without damaging topsoil or catching utility lines or cables.
