Valby Log Grapples for Skid Steers

Valby grapple

Valby skid steer grapples have maximum openings from 36 to 60 inches. Their rotators have over 700 foot-pounds of torque. This attachment requires two sets of hydraulic outlets from the skid steer. One pair runs the continuous rotator, the other pair opens and closes the grapple. If the loader has only one pair of hydraulic outlets, you can order the grapple with a solenoid operated diverter valve. This valve allows the splitting of the oil flow from one circuit into two which allows both the rotation and grapple functions to be run off one circuit.

This attachment enables the skid steer to be used for moving, stacking and loading chores on the landing, in the yard, or on the job site. The skidding grapple is equipped with a universal mounting plate. Movement of the logs during transport is minimized because the grapple secures the log on the top, bottom, and sides.

Additional Advantages:

  • Made from Hardox--a prime steel used in the manufacture of high quality grapples
  • Large, powerful cylinders
  • Double connection rods provide good balance and less stress
  • A belly plate protects the cylinder from underneath
  • Modern bypass grapple design
  • Valby bypass grapples have excellent geometry. The form of the claws enables a smooth roll in and release of the stems. The grapples also close to a tight minimum opening.
  • All grapples have bronze bushings and grease fittings at every joint
