GMT Equipment Fly Jib

With a GMT Fly Jib you can easily install a GMT grapple saw on the knuckleboom crane of your truck or on your telehandler. This crane extension is needed to ensure free movement and the 360 degree rotation of the grapple saw, when the crane is in an upright position. In addition, the jib provides useful extra reach.

Models GMT Fly Jib

Our GMT Jibs for knuckleboom cranes and telehandlers are compatible with GMT035 and GMT050, both TTC as non-TTC models. The GMT Folding Jib is only compatible with the GMT035.

GMT Jib for Knuckleboom Cranes

The GMT Fly Jib makes it easy to install a GMT grapple saw on the knuckleboom crane of your truck. It also prevents the grapple saw from hitting the crane beam when the crane is in an almost upright position.

To ensure the Jib fits your knuckleboom crane properly, we need the dimensions of your last crane section. When ordering, please fill out the form below.

GMT Jib for Telehandlers

The GMT Jib for a telehandler makes it easy to install a GMT grapple saw onto your rotating telehandler. The jib has been specially designed for tree work: all hoses and specific components are well protected when moving through the canopy of a tree.

The Jib is available as standard for Manitou, Magni and Merlo (ZM2 + ZM3) telehandler brands. Other brands on request.

GMT Folding Jib

When utilising the GMT035 (without TTC), the GMT Folding Jib might be an interesting option. It allows you to disconnect the grapple saw, rotator and link in one go with a quick connector. The Fly Jib can then easily be retracted into the upper section of the crane.

GMT Bolt-on crane tip welding plate for excavators

As mentioned, the GMT grapple saw must be able to swing freely and rotate 360 degrees. An extension arm must therefore also be manufactured in preparation for installing the GMT grapple saw to an excavator. Take a look at our Machine Applications section to see some examples of excavators with a GMT Equipment grapple saw.

Since there are a lot of variables, we do not have a standard Jib for excavators, but we will supply you with a bolt-on crane tip welding plate. This ‘mounting’ plate must be used to weld on your own manufactured extension arm. Setting up the grapple saw is then very easy, requiring just six bolts!

Why a GMT Fly Jib?

  • Attach your GMT grapple saw to any knuckleboom crane or telehandler
  • Make your truck with knuckleboom crane or your telehandler more versatile
  • Robust design: long service life

GMT Fly Jib in combination with the GMT grapple saw and the GMT C10 Quick coupler

Want to save time, cost and manpower? Combine the GMT grapple saw and Fly Jib with the Quick coupler GMT C10. This gives you greater flexibility. The smart construction means you don’t have to adapt your machine. It allows you to quickly and easily switch between the grapple saw and other equipment on your crane.

The GMT Equipment grapple saws are suitable for all rigid vehicles with cranes. Good examples are trucks, telehandlers, excavators, tractors, forwarders and skidders. You simply mount the grapple saw on the crane of the operating vehicle. It is also possible to switch off the saw function and use the grapple like a normal wood grapple. This is particularly useful when loading and unloading your vehicle.

Making Tree Work Safe and Efficient!

Using the GMT Equipment grapple saw, quick coupler and Fly Jib means you save man-hours and materials. It also means lower total costs over the entire service life, making the GMT grapple saw a profitable investment.
