The Nye XCG2 Series contractors grapple, designed primarily for demolition work, also tackles crushing/loading garbage, wood waste and construction debris.

The XCG2 line features complex internal bridging and gussets, tips made of AR400 with improved geometry for better penetration, and tines made from QT100, serrated on the sides for improved gripping/pulling of material. Stringers extend all the way from the tips to the bridge forming an individual T1 box section for each tine, and on the back of the tines there is an AR400 wear plate. Main pivot point bushings are designed to keep the grapple together when the main pin is removed.

All Nye pulverizers come standard with an extra heavy three-position bracket and brace. Nye grapples are easy to install, require no extra hydraulics and offer simple, safe, almost silent operation. Quick coupler and pin grabber models are offered by the company.
