Genesis Attachments announces its new Handling Grapple, GHG, designed with streamlined features that require less maintenance.

The GHG 125 contains a single, oversized cylinder with dual drag links that minimizes the number of moving parts, simplifying the hydraulic system and reducing maintenance. Easy-to-locate grease fittings in the streamlined tine, frame and linkage design also decrease downtime.

Designed for waste handling and recycling, C&D material handling and sorting, and primary demolition applications, the GHG is available with perforated or heavy-duty ribbed tines that close at a very flat angle to assist in compacting material. Maximum crushing force densifies material while the strong rotation system resists back-driving forces.

Large recessed side covers provide easy access to internal components while protecting the cover fasteners, and small openings in the lower housing prevent material from accumulating inside the grapple.
