GR50HD Log Grapple


The Valby GR50HD is suitable for use on smaller truck loaders. We recommend the R45 rotator with this grapple.

• Modern bypass grapple design.

Hardox is a prime steel used in the manufacture of high quality log grapples.

• 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.
