GR28 Log Grapple

The GR28 Grapple is a small grapple for farm tractor forwarders and 3-point hitch knuckleboom loaders. The grapple is shown here with the R30 rotator. This is also a popular combination when small backhoes are converted to loaders.

• Modern bypass grapple design.

• All Valby grapples have a bronze bushing at every joint, and every joint has a grease fitting.

• Large, powerful cylinder.

• Double connection rods provide good balance and less stress.

• A belly plate protects the cylinder from underneath.

• All Valby grapples have easily accessible grease fittings.

• The Valby bypass grapples have excellent geometry. The form of the claws enables a smooth roll in of the stems. The grapples also close to a tight minimum opening.
