MB Crusher unveils three models of sorting grapples

MB G350 3MB Crusher has manufactured three new grapples, designed and built with the company’s philosophy in mind: to simplify the work on-site, reduce the time spent processing material, and save on operational costs

The grapples can work in multiple application areas: handling logs, stones, debris, poles, positioning stones for drywall, clearing branches, etc.

Twinblings: The two small grapples for mini and midi Excavators

The new models are designed for smaller excavators: the MB-G350 and the MB-G450. The former weighs just over 13 stones and is compatible with mini excavators weighing from 1.3 to 2.6 tonnes. The latter weighs just over 45 stones and can be installed on midi excavators weighing 3 to 6 tonnes.

Small and compact, versatile and safe, agile and precise, both grapples have a wider opening than any of the other grapples on the market: despite being small, they can still pick up and handle large materials. They are equipped with a fall prevention valve, guaranteeing safety on the job site. The parts prone to wear are made of Hardox steel.

Both models are designed to have an electrical kit installed for dual-acting hydraulics: this way, the two grapples can utilise 360° rotation even with mini excavators that only have two hoses.

Like the larger models, the MB-G450 sorting grapple comes with interchangeable blades, which can be flipped around, extending the life of the blades. Finally, both units have two versions: with or without a rotation turret.

Both grapples can have accessories installed to simplify managing materials: the clamshell kit is perfect when collecting and handling small material, picking up soil, gravel, and sand. The multi-purpose blade kit helps pick up oddly shaped materials. For the MB-G450 sorting grapple, you can install the tilting lift rubber protection kit to manage angular blocks and delicate material.

MB-G1000, for excavators, weighing from 18 to 25 tonne

Weighing at 254.32 stones and has a load capacity of 0.44 m3 /440L for versatile, compact, and reliable equipment: the new MB-G1000 grapple was explicitly designed for heavy work. Due to the work, the unit has been reinforced without losing its agility and ease of use.

Two new features are the dual motor, which allows for greater rotation and closing force, and the balancing valves installed on the hydraulic cylinder, allowing the unit to be more precise when handling materials.
