The Virnig V40 skeleton rock grapple is a two-cylinder independent grapple designed to pick rocks while leaving dirt and debris behind.
Virnig Manufacturing Inc.'s value-priced skeleton rock grapple attachment — the Virnig V40 skeleton rock grapple — is a two-cylinder independent grapple designed to pick rocks while leaving dirt and debris behind.
Oddly shaped items (like logs or piles of concrete), can be moved more easily and efficiently with this grapple.
The open “skeleton” bottom allows dirt and smaller unwanted material to fall through the 2.9 in. (7.3 cm) tine spacing. The raised ridge in center of tines (rock dam) and notch near tips helps secure rocks while digging.
Every other tine is constructed of one piece of steel, from tip to top brace, to add rigidity. A cross member (or front comb) spans across the bottom tines of the grapple to increase overall strength. Also features fully gusseted tine tips to strengthen tines and limit bending.
This skeleton grapple is available in 66 to 84 in. (167.6 to 213 cm) widths. Optional cylinder guards are available to protect the cylinders from debris.
All Virnig products are backed by a one-year warranty, and the skid steer attachments are USA made and built with a universal mount to fit most skid steer loaders including: Bobcat, Caterpillar, ASV, Case, Daewoo, Gehl, JCB, John Deere, Kubota, Mustang, New Holland, Takeuchi, Terex, Volvo, Wacker-Neuson and others.
