Atlas Copco Introduces MG 1800 Demolition Multi-Grapple

Wed July 19, 2006 - National Edition

Atlas Copco Construction Tools Inc.’s MG 1800 hydraulic demolition multi-grapple attachment has a high load capacity of 1.1 cu. yd. (.84 cu m) and a maximum closing force of 8 tons (7.3 t).

The MG 1800 is ideal for sorting and loading rubble, as well as demolition of masonry and wooden structures.

At a service weight of 3,968 lb. (1,799 kg), the MG 1800 is suitable for carriers in the 20 to 30 metric ton weight class.

The unit operates at a maximum pressure of 5,076 psi and accepts maximum hydraulic flow of 40 gal. (151 L) per minute.

The grapple jaws of the MG 1800 open to a width of 87 in. (221 cm) to provide jaw capacity for various demolition applications.

The jaws feature large bearing surfaces for reduced wear.

Each jaw tip features a replaceable wear edge that can be flipped to provide a second wear surface.

A 360-degree hydraulic rotation unit on the MG 1800 allows for accurate positioning of the attachment.

Additionally, two hydraulic cylinders increase the grapple’s closing forces.

The cylinders are protected against outside debris, and a built-in rotation protection system reduces wear and tear on the carrier.

Optional loading plates are available to improve grapple capacity. The plates fasten to and close the sides of the grapple jaws to contain material when loading.
