Electric grapple designed for sub-compact tractors

December 10, 2019  By Fruit & Vegetable

Worksaver, Inc.’s new electric grapple for sub-compact tractors (up to 32 horsepower) equipped with loaders handle debris, brush, limbs, orchard prunings and more.

Being electric, no auxiliary hydraulics are required to operate the grapple clamp. An industrial duty 12-volt linear actuator with an eight-inch stroke operates the grapple clamp. The grapple is supplied with a wiring harness for direct connection to the tractor’s battery and a pre-wired rocker switch controls the grapple’s linear actuator.

The 28.5-inch-wide single upper grapple and lower 49-inch-wide rake have tines made from 3/8-inch material. Both the upper grapple and lower rake feature gripping notches to help retain loose materials.


The ESCG-48S model is designed for loaders with “universal” skid steer quick attach system, the ESCG-48JD model is for loaders that use the John Deere hook and pin type quick attach mount (200X, 200CX, D120, D160, H120, H130, H160) allowing the operator to easily change from the bucket to the grapple.
