The Palax Handy Skidding Grapple for inexpensive yet efficient skidding and transportation of trees over short distances. The three claws and the counter bolster straighten well the pulpwood which makes transportation and piling of the trees faster. Because of the articulated frame of the skidding grapple, the load follows the tractor's movements causing no damage to the growing tree stand. The articulated joint can be locked from the cabin.
The hydraulic lateral swing, which is available as an option, makes picking up of bunches from the drive track easier. The wide spread of the claws and the strong cylinder ensure penetration of the claws into the wood pile.
