Northshore Manufacturing, Two Harbors, Minn., has introduced its self-contained Model 6TSG-1000 orange-peel grapple. The grapple, weighing slightly more than 25,000 pounds, houses a five-cylinder, air-cooled Deutz diesel engine, hydraulic tank, hydraulic pump and fuel tank.
According to a news release from Northshore, the U.S.-made grapple can be operated via a single cable line and is opened and closed via a radio remote control, making it easy for a crane operator to also operate the grapple. The grapple is designed for dockside applications and is designed to handle a wide variety of materials, including scrap steel, wood debris, coal and other commodities.
Key features/benefits/options include:
- 10-cubic-yard (7.5-cubic-meter) capacity;
