Making tree work Safe and Efficient!

The people at GMT Equipment have been active in the forestry mechanisation sector since 1998. What have they learnt over the years? That tree clearance and maintenance companies, green-space management businesses and companies operating in natural areas increasingly need to improve speed and efficiency. Need to remove trees along busy roads or railways, or from locations with access issues? Then you want to keep inconvenience for the surrounding areas to an absolute minimum. Maybe you need to work with fewer people because prices are under pressure? The grapple saw and quick coupler can facilitate this. 

Smart combination of grapple saw and quick coupler

The grapple saw is a grapple saw with hydraulic controls. Mounted on a log forwarder, mobile crane, rotating tele-handler or container truck, the grapple saw saws both upright trees and wood that is lying on the ground. The combination with the quick coupler is ideal: the smart construction means changing your machine is a thing of the past. You mount the grapple saw in the blink of an eye. The grapple saw and quick coupler are sold across the world. We work together with local dealers.

Multifunctional grapple saw

Versatility is the basis of the grapple saw’s success. In the Netherlands, the grapple saw is used by our customers for all sorts of jobs, in the city and the countryside. This could include the removal or management of trees, then milling and preparing them for transport. In Germany, the clamp is also often used for sawing wood for energy. Another application? In Chile, the grapple is used for harvesting wood from plantations.

Safety

  1. Safety first: grapple holds tree trunk at maximum pressure, before cutting starts
  2. Horizontal back ribs to secure tree trunk from slipping in every position
  3. Tilt cilinder blocked when sawfunction is enabled allowing you to control tipping of tree trunks after cutting

Efficiency

  1. Patented manifold enables plug-and-play installation without any changes to your crane or vehicle
  2. Easy accessible manual operated ball valve to block sawfunction allows you to use the machine as a normal grapple
  3. Saw oil tank capacity enough for a full working day
  4. Compatible with all 173mm rotator types

Quality

  1. All components made of high quality Weldox steel
  2. Special designed saw bar prevents losing your chain
  3. Chain tensioner based on many years of field experience
  4. Hydraulic lines are well protected
